Racial Justice/Racial Equity Seed Funding (Provost Office)

Societal inequities along racial lines have deep historical and systemic roots and span many areas, including but not limited to education, housing, health, economic security, voting and political participation, and the criminal justice system. Understanding racial inequalities that exist in our society and identifying mechanisms to address them is critical to achieving a more equitable society. 

This funding opportunity seeks to identify and support research proposals from current, full-time members of the Emory faculty whose research, scholarly efforts, and creative activities address racial justice/racial equity. At Emory University, racial justice means making sure our society works for every citizen. Specifically, it is about working toward equity for individuals and groups systematically excluded and disadvantaged in the United States, whether that exclusion has historic origins or stems from current biased practices.

Infectious Diseases

Maintaining Immunity after Immunization (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to promote research to improve our understanding of how vaccines against infectious agents lead to durable protective immunity. This initiative will support studies that define components and mechanisms of the immune system that determine such durability.

Applications must propose the use of human cells/tissues to decipher the human response elicited through vaccination. Animal studies also may be included to elucidate mechanistic pathways not easily accomplished with human samples.

Harmonization of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (AD/ADRD) Genetic, Epidemiologic, and Clinical Data to Enhance Therapeutic Target Discovery (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) invites applications specific to infrastructure that will support, under a single cooperative agreement (U24), phenotypic data harmonization on subjects with Alzheimer's Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP) genetic and genomic data.

These data will become a long-lived “legacy” data set that will be perpetually curated. The FOA will fund a single vanguard network of researchers with expertise in genetics, epidemiology, and clinical specialties who will work with the ADSP and with study cohort leads on data harmonization efforts to optimize the ability to identify well-targeted therapeutic approaches for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (AD/ADRD).

Deadline: 1/25/2023

National Institute on Aging Genetics of Alzheimer's Disease Data Storage Site (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications specific to infrastructure that will support the storage, analysis, and sharing of primary and secondary data for the genetics and genomics of Alzheimer's disease and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD).

Advanced Development and Validation of Emerging Molecular and Cellular Analysis Technologies for Basic and Clinical Cancer Research (R33 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites grant applications proposing exploratory research projects focused on further development and validation of emerging technologies offering novel capabilities for targeting, probing, or assessing molecular and cellular features of cancer biology for basic, clinical, or epidemiological cancer research.

This FOA solicits R33 applications where major feasibility gaps for the technology or methodology have been overcome, as demonstrated with supportive preliminary data, but still requires further development and rigorous validation to encourage adoption by the research community.

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.

Deadline: 3/1/2023

Innovative Biospecimen Science Technologies for Basic and Clinical Cancer Research (R61 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits grant applications proposing exploratory research projects focused on the early-stage development of highly innovative technologies that improve the quality of the samples used for cancer research or clinical care. This includes new capabilities to address issues related to pre-analytical degradation of targeted analytes during the collection, processing, handling, and/or storage of cancer-relevant biospecimens.

The overall goal is to support the development of highly innovative technologies capable of maximizing or otherwise interrogating the quality and utility of biological samples used for downstream analyses.

This FOA will support the development of tools, devices, instrumentation, and associated methods to preserve or protect sample integrity, or establish verification criteria for quality assessment/quality control and handling under diverse conditions.
