Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Accelerating Progress in Celiac Disease Research: NIH
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that occurs in genetically susceptible individuals who develop an immune response to ingested gluten. This disease affects greater than 1% of the US population, and incidence appears to have been increasing over the last several decades. The only known treatment is life-long strict avoidance of all forms of wheat, rye, and barley.
Clinical manifestations are multifaceted and include gastrointestinal (ranging from severe malabsorption to subclinical damage of the gastrointestinal tract) as well as extraintestinal (e.g., skin) expressions of disease. The pathogenesis of celiac disease involves a combination of predisposing genes, gluten, and environmental factors. HLA-DQ2 and/or HLA-DQ8 haplotypes are the predominant predisposing genes, and dietary gluten is the major inciting factor in individuals with celiac disease.
While much is understood about the mechanism of disease, unmet needs in understanding celiac disease pathogenesis remain, including limited understanding of pathways of disease and tissue destruction, and what causes the loss of tolerance to a component of food.
The purpose of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to inform potential applicants to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of special interest in research on the etiology and pathogenesis of celiac disease, identification of therapeutic targets, and development of preventative or disease ameliorating therapies/strategies.
Innovative Molecular and Cellular Analysis Technologies for Basic and Clinical Cancer Research (R61 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits grant applications proposing exploratory research projects focused on the early-stage development of highly innovative technologies offering novel molecular or cellular analysis capabilities for basic or clinical cancer research. The emphasis of this FOA is on supporting the development of novel capabilities involving a high degree of technical innovation for targeting, probing, or assessing molecular and cellular features of cancer biology. Well-suited applications must offer the potential to accelerate and/or enhance research in the areas of cancer biology, early detection and screening, clinical diagnosis, treatment, control, epidemiology, and/or address issues associated with cancer health disparities. Technologies proposed for development may be intended to have widespread applicability but must be focused on improving molecular and/or cellular characterizations of cancer biology. Projects proposing the application of existing technologies where the novelty resides in the biological or clinical target/question being pursued are not responsive to this solicitation and will not be reviewed.
This funding opportunity is part of a broader NCI-sponsored Innovative Molecular Analysis Technologies (IMAT) Program.
Deadline: April 22, 2022, September 22, 2022.
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): RFA-CA-22-001.

Basic Neurodevelopmental Biology of Circuits and Behavior (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages research projects focused on the dynamic and mechanistic links between the maturation of brain circuits and behaviors across development in rodents and non-human primates. The goal is to build a foundation for understanding how interactions within and among brain regions change over pre- and post-natal development, allowing for the emergence of cognitive, affective and social behaviors. To this end, projects supported will focus on neurodevelopmental trajectories and investigate questions using in vivo neural measures in awake, behaving animals. This FOA uses the R01 grant mechanism, whereas its companion FOA, PAR-22-067, seeks shorter, higher-risk R21 grant applications.
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): PAR-22-066 (R01); PAR-22-067 (R21).
Expert-Driven Small Projects to Strengthen Gabriella Miller Kids First Discovery (R03 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
The NIH Common Fund has established the Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program (Kids First) with the vision of alleviating suffering from childhood cancer and structural birth defects by fostering collaborative research to uncover the etiology of these diseases and supporting data sharing within the pediatric research community.
Kids First has established and continues to develop a Data Resource including a large collection of curated genomic and phenotypic data from childhood cancer and structural birth defects cohorts and a central portal where these data and analysis tools are accessible to the research community. This FOA is intended to engage experts in a variety of activities that will enhance the utility of childhood cancer and/or structural birth defects genomic datasets generated by the Kids First program and/or associated phenotypic datasets and resources. These activities should strengthen future analyses of Kids First datasets by the broader researcher community with the ultimate goal of improving diagnostic capabilities and therapies for children and their families affected by these conditions.

NEI Research Grant for Vision-Related Secondary Data Analysis (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
This FOA encourages applications from institutions/organizations that propose to conduct vision-related secondary data analyses utilizing existing database resources. Applications may be related to, but must be distinct from, the specific aims of the original data collection. The NEI supports an extensive portfolio of clinical trials and large-scale epidemiologic research projects wherein numerous data collection activities are required to meet each project's specific aims. The resultant wealth of data generated by these studies often provides unique, cost-effective opportunities to investigate additional research questions or develop new analytical approaches secondary to a project's originally-intended purpose. Data are not limited to those collected under NEI support, but such data are of the highest programmatic interest. The purpose of this FOA is for secondary data analysis using existing data sets from vision-related clinical trials, epidemiologic, and other clinical research studies. This FOA may be used to develop new statistical methodologies or test hypotheses using existing data, but this FOA must not be used to support the collection of new data.
Deadline: Standard dates apply, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization until May 8, 2022.
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): PAR-19-260.
