National Science Foundation Incorporating Human Behavior in Epidemiological Models (IHBEM)

Current epidemiological models have proved insufficient to understanding the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, in part, due to human behavioral and social processes that are missing from the models.

These processes include structural characteristics such as differential living conditions and patterns of social interaction, and behavioral characteristics such as responsiveness to incentives and information by different segments of the population.

As a result, the mathematical models and, tools for model analyses and simulations that were developed to respond to the pandemic were not as effective or useful as they could have been.

The IHBEM program is motivated by the urgent need to provide more reliable modeling tools to inform decision making and to evaluate public health policies during pandemics and other public health crises, with the premise that important advances may be made by incorporating human behavioral and social processes in mathematical epidemiological models.

The goal of this program is to minimize unintended outcomes of public health interventions.

Deadline for applications: Submission window: April 3 - April 14, 2023

Substance Use Prevention Services in Primary Care Challenge

The United States is experiencing a significant behavioral health crisis, putting substantial strain on the health care system.

Primary care practices are one potential setting in which to address this crisis, but primary care providers (PCPs) face substantial barriers in identifying individuals who may be at risk for substance use and delivering evidence-based prevention interventions to reduce the risk for use.

This Challenge seeks creative, visionary, and actionable plans to implement substance use prevention interventions in primary care. Winners will receive prizes of up to $25,000, and NIDA encourages the winners to utilize the awards to support the implementation of substance use prevention services in those primary care practices. 

Open until: 5/19/23

Pilot Interventions to Integrate Social Care and Medical Care to Improve Health Equity (R01—Clinical Trial Required) (RFA-DK-22-038)

This NIDDK Funding Opportunity Announcement will support pilot and feasibility trials to test interventions that involve screening for and addressing adverse social determinants of health (SDoH), also called social risks, during a health care visit.

Patients’ endorsed social needs could be addressed by appropriately referring/navigating patients or caregivers to resources that address these issues at social service organizations located externally or co-located in the healthcare system.

The trials will determine 1) feasibility and acceptability of screening for social risks, identifying social needs and implementing referral service linkages (e.g., addressing transportation and housing needs, food insecurity, etc.) within the context of a healthcare visit, and 2) preliminary signals of the intervention’s impact on both the social risk/need(s) and NIDDK disease outcomes.

Preliminary data regarding intervention efficacy are not required. The proposed pilot and feasibility clinical trials should lay the foundation for larger clinical trials to integrate social care and medical care and improve health outcomes related to the prevention and/or treatment of diseases within the mission of NIDDK.
