Upcoming SVPR Events

Constructive Collisions: Neuroscience x Environmental Health

Monday, October 11, 2022 | 11:45 AM - 2:00 PM

Rollins School of Public Health, 8th Floor

Lawrence P. & Ann Estes Klamon Room

1518 Clifton Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA 30322

Join us for an in-person, on-campus event that will include two exciting collaboration opportunities to connect researchers working in Neuroscience x Environmental Health. 


The Office of SVPR, in partnership with HERCULES Exposome Research Center, Goizueta Institute @ Emory Brain Health, and the Department of Human Genetics, invites Emory researchers who work in environmental health, brain health and the neurosciences, and other related disciplines to attend. Faculty who do not currently work in this space but who are interested are also welcome.


NIH has formally expressed interest in promoting interdisciplinary research and addressing current gaps and opportunities in the intersection of these research areas.


This session will host Lightning Talk presenters who will share brief 10-minute presentations on their ongoing work and future research interests. Following Lighting Talks, we will host a Pitch Session where event attendees will network, collaborate, and brainstorm project ideas that can lead to extramural funding in this area. The event will culminate with each team pitching a real seed project, with up to three teams receiving small, on-the-spot funding to support new collaborations.

**Parking and Box Lunch Included**

Development of Animal Models and Related Materials for HIV/AIDS Research (R24 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

The Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) encourages grant applications aimed at developing, characterizing, or improving animal models for HIV/AIDS research or for improving access to information about or generated from the use of these specialized animal models for such research. The animal models, related biological materials, or technological tools to be developed must be broadly applicable to the scientific interests of two or more NIH Institutes or Centers (ICs) and must explore multiple organ systems or evaluate diseases and processes that impact multiple organ systems in order to align with ORIP’s NIH-wide mission and programs as well as the NIH HIV/AIDS research priorities developed by the Office of AIDS Research.

Expanding Collaborative Implementation Science to Address Social and Structural Determinants of Health and Improve HIV Outcomes (R01 Clinical Trial Required)

Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Institute of Mental Health, in partnership with other NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices, aims to support implementation science research to strengthen the evidence for effective interventions and implementation strategies that target Social and Structural Determinants of Health (SSDoH) and ultimately improve HIV outcomes and reduce inequities. This initiative will support applications that propose hybrid implementation-effectiveness studies that simultaneously test the effectiveness of interventions addressing SSDoH and implementation strategies to facilitate their uptake or adaptation. This initiative is closely aligned with the goals of the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) in the U.S. initiative, coordinated by the Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health.

AIDS Deadline: 11/18/2022

Brain Health

Understanding the Supply of Professional Dementia Care Providers and Their Decisions (U54 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to develop a national survey of professional Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and AD-related dementias (ADRD) care providers and link consented survey respondents (providers and institutional representatives) to administrative data (e.g., electronic health records, claims, payroll, and other institutional and state-level data).

NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research: Computational Training in Neuroscience and Behavior (T90/R90 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Seeks grant applications that will establish research training programs in computational neuroscience and behavior for undergraduate and predoctoral level students. The training program should expose undergraduate and graduate students to a wide range of neuroscience and behavioral questions, quantitative methods, and experimental systems to ensure a strong dual foundation in clinical and quantitative science. This foundation is expected to give trainees the ability to adopt new computational theory and methodology and apply these methods to relevant questions in health and disease.

Internal Opportunities

ARPA-H Seed Funding

To help position Emory faculty for the launch of ARPA-H, the Office of the Sr. Vice President for Research, in consultation with the Office of the Provost, has created the ARPA-H seed funds program. These seeds are intended to lead to competitive ARPA-H proposals. In alignment with ARPA-H’s expected culture and processes, this seed funding aims to rapidly de-risk bold, revolutionary concepts in the biomedical and health sciences.

Given the unique culture of ARPA-H and its reliance on program managers to make funding decisions based on the Heilmeier Questions (and not peer review), awardees will receive tailored training and feedback on their responses to the Heilmeier Questions. During and after the conclusion of the seed project, seed recipients will work with the Office of Research Development to refine their ARPA-H pitch.

Deadline: 10/5/2022
