Federal Funding agencies
Advancing Adolescent Tobacco Cessation Intervention Research (R34 Clinical Trial Optional): NIH
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to provide support for research to facilitate well planned clinical trials aimed at advancing the science of tobacco cessation among adolescents. Specifically, the FOA invites applications for Planning Grants (R34) to inform the planning, design, and initial development of adolescent tobacco cessation behavioral intervention studies, with an emphasis on the critical developmental risk period ranging from mid- to late adolescence (i.e., approximately 14-20 years old). Applications should propose clinical trial planning activities that are scientifically necessary to guide the design and conduct of a future clinical trial evaluating a tobacco cessation behavioral intervention for adolescents. Planning activities could include, but are not limited to, feasibility and pilot studies to assess intervention viability and/or trial design, and testing of recruitment, retention, and adherence strategies to increase participant engagement and scientific rigor.
Deadline: January 23, 2023 and October 15, 2023. Applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): RFA-CA-22-042
Transformative Nucleic Acid Sequencing Technology Innovation and Early Development (R01 Clinical Trial not Allowed): NIH
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits R01 grant applications to innovate and develop the early stages of novel technologies that will enable greater than a one order of magnitude improvement in 1) DNA sequencing, and 2) methods for direct sequencing of the diversity of entire RNA molecules. Advances in genomics and more broadly in biomedical research have been greatly facilitated by cycles of technology innovation and disruption that have driven significant and sustained nucleic acid sequencing throughput and assembly quality increases combined with cost decreases and read quality improvements. The goal now is to dramatically advance DNA sequencing and direct RNA sequencing technologies at reasonable costs with the anticipation that significant innovation in any of these and related areas would make significant contributions to the mission of NHGRI and the field of genomics, including to many of NHGRI’s other technology development goals.
Deadline: February 1, 2023. Applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): RFA-HG-21-006
Large Scale Integrated Mapping and Molecular Profiling of Cell Ensembles and/or Cell-Types Mediating Opioid Action in the Rodent Brain (R01 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) aims to support complementary research programs that adopt innovative scalable technologies to inventory, register and profile cellular ensembles and/or cell-types that produce and/or respond to opioids in the rodent brain, or that are engaged during different stages of opioid use (acute, chronic, withdrawal, abstinence, relapse). Emphasis is on approaches capable of integrating data generated through molecular profiling, at single-cell resolution, with other data modalities, such as cellular activity, connectivity and/or spatial localization, collected from the same cells or cell-types. The overarching goal of the FOA is to deliver multimodal reference datasets that will constitute useful resources to the research community and will provide a foundational biological framework to advance the understanding and treatment of opioid-associated states.
Deadline: February 02, 2023. Applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
