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.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Interest in Research on Climate Change and Healthcare

AHRQ has a special interest in receiving health services research grant applications that address the intersection of climate change and healthcare. Applications that address the following areas are of heightened interest:

  • Reducing the healthcare sector’s greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint.
  • Creating resilient healthcare systems and communities that can plan, prepare, respond, and adapt to climate-related threats.
  • Addressing the inequitable impacts of climate change.

Climate change is the leading threat to public health, contributing to both individual health problems and broader disruptions to vital infrastructure and the healthcare system.

The healthcare industry is not only a responder to climate events, but a significant contributor to climate change through its emissions.

Research and action are needed on both fronts and must be guided by an equity lens that prioritizes protecting and empowering individuals and communities that face the highest risks and bear the highest burdens of environmental pollution and a changing climate.

Applications in these areas are being accepted through multiple programs. 

Deadline for applications: varies based on program

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Pharmacogenomic Approaches to Enhancing HIV and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment Strategies, A jump into Precision Medicine

Variable responses to ART are due at least in part to human genetic variants that affect drug metabolism, drug disposition, and off-site drug targets. Defining effects of human genetic variants on HIV treatment toxicity, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics has far-reaching implications.

Substances of abuse (opioid, stimulants, nicotine, anxiolytics, alcohol, etc.) and its treatments (methadone, buprenorphine, extended naltrexone, etc.) may interact with ART, altering its bioavailability, its safety, and its efficacy.

It is known that nevirapine and efavirenz increase methadone clearance. New evidence demonstrates that variabilities in responses to ART depend in part on genetic variants for certain drugs of abuse and its therapies. For instance, a NR1I3 gene variant affected methadone clearance only in those taking efavirenz.

Two other genetic variants in the ABCB1 and CYP2B6 genes decreased methadone clearance. More research, though, is necessary to better understand the role of pharmacogenomics in people with HIV (PLWH) with substance use disorders (SUD).

Dyadic Interpersonal Processes and Biopsychosocial Outcomes (R01 - Basic Experimental Studies with Humans)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) invites basic and/or methodological research projects that illuminate and/or measure independent and interdependent health-related effects within dyads across relationships and settings.

For the purpose of this FOA, a dyad is a unit of two individuals whose interactions and influences on one another are nested within larger social contexts and networks. Dyads are social relationships that extend beyond the individual and have strong bidirectional influences on physical and mental health.

For the purpose of this FOA, independent effects are those effects that affect each member of the dyad individually (i.e., by nature of being part of the dyad), whereas interdependent effects are those that affect one member of the dyad contingent upon the other member of the dyad (i.e., not only because the individual is part of a dyad but also because being part of the dyad has an effect on the other individual within the dyad as well).

Deadline: 3/5/2023

Research on Current Topics in Alzheimer's Disease and Its Related Dementias (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Leading Culture Change Through Professional Societies of Biology (BIO-LEAPS)

The Leading Culture Change through Professional Societies of Biology (BIO-LEAPS) program aims to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the biological sciences broadly by leveraging the leadership, broad reach, and unique ability of professional societies to create culture change in the life sciences.

The Directorate for Biological Sciences at the National Science Foundation (NSF BIO) recognizes that culture change in the biological sciences is an urgent priority because it is foundational to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the discipline.

The culture of a scientific discipline — defined here as the shared values, norms, traditions, and practices — can be thought of as an emergent property that results from years of experiences and interactions among scientists, their institutions, their professional societies, and their networks.

It is increasingly recognized that the perceptions and attitudes of that culture can be quite variable for different individuals and are often negative for individuals historically excluded from the sciences (e.g., based on gender, gender identity, disability status, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, the intersections of these, and others).

Therefore, this program is designed to foster the necessary culture change within biology to move towards an equitable and inclusive culture that supports a diverse community of biologists that more fully reflects the demographic composition of the US population.
