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

ARPA-H Announces First BAA!

We opened our first Agency-wide Open BAA, seeking funding proposals for research aiming to improve health outcomes across patient populations, communities, diseases, and health conditions.

The BAA calls for proposals to outline breakthrough research and technological advancements. Proposals should investigate unconventional approaches, and challenge accepted assumptions to enable leaps forward in science, technology, systems, or related capabilities.

We also encourage concepts to advance the objectives of President Biden’s Cancer Moonshot, as well as more disease-agnostic approaches. Proposals are expected to use innovative approaches to enable revolutionary advances in science, technology, or systems. 

The four initial focus areas are:

  • Health Sciences Futures
  • Scalable Solutions
  • Proactive Health
  • Resilient Systems

Applications accepted until March 14, 2024

Organismal Response to Climate Change (ORCC) Expanding Understanding and Improving Predictions of Life on a Warming Planet

The world is currently undergoing unprecedented changes in global climates across all biomes, with effects on nearly every life-form.

How organisms respond to these rapidly changing conditions will have large consequences for the distribution of species over space and time, the integrity and the composition of natural communities, the distribution and the yield of domesticated crops and animals, and the incidence and the severity of pathogen outbreaks.

Consequences such as these are already having major impacts on the world's food security, the bioeconomy, and the ecosystem services provided by living systems to humans.

Advancing Integrated Models (AIM) of Care to Improve Pregnancy Outcomes among Women Who Experience Persistent Disparities (R01 Clinical Trial Optional) (RFA-NR-23-002)

Disparities in pregnancy outcomes are a public health crisis that requires new insights and solutions. The purpose of this initiative—advancing integrated models (AIM) of care—is to stimulate research to develop or evaluate supportive care models that address healthcare access or healthcare quality, together with structural or social inequities in efforts to prevent adverse pregnancy outcomes among racial and ethnic minority women.

This includes original intervention research and research evaluating the impact of federal, tribal, state, local, or organizational policies and programs on pregnancy outcomes. Outcomes of interest include morbidity and mortality due to comorbid conditions (e.g., hypertension, diabetes, obesity, mental illness), severe maternal morbidity (e.g., cardiomyopathy, embolism, eclampsia), other factors for which risk is markedly elevated during and following the period of pregnancy (e.g., homicide including when involving a firearm, suicide), and health behaviors that increase risk of poor pregnancy outcomes (e.g., diet and dietary behaviors, physical activity, substance use).

Deadline: 5/1/2023
