Biotechnology Risk Assessment Research Grants (BRAG) Program

The purpose of the Biotechnology Risk Assessment Research Grants Program (BRAG) program is to support the generation of new information that will assist Federal regulatory agencies in making science-based decisions about the effects of introducing into the environment genetically engineered organisms (GE), including plants, microorganisms — such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses — arthropods, fish, birds, mammals and other animals excluding humans. Investigations of effects on both managed and natural environments are relevant.

Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities

The Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities (IATDH) program supports national or regional (multistate) training programs for scholars, humanities professionals, and advanced graduate students to broaden and extend their knowledge of digital humanities. Through this program, NEH seeks to increase the number of humanities scholars and practitioners using digital technology in their research and to broadly disseminate knowledge about advanced technology tools and methodologies relevant to the humanities.

HIV/AIDS Scholars Using Nonhuman Primate (NHP) Models Program (K01 Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The purpose of this NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide salary and research support to investigators who are within ten years of completing their terminal professional degree or residency training. Research and mentorship must be in the field of HIV/AIDS translational studies, using nonhuman primates (NHPs) as preclinical models. These awards will provide 3 years of support for intensive research career development under the guidance of an experienced mentorship team, with expertise in both the pre-clinical application of NHP HIV/AIDS models and in translation of the results from such studies to clinical application in humans. The expectation is that this sustained experience will launch independent research careers and enable awardees to become competitive for new research project grant (e.g., R01) funding.

AIDS Deadline: 1/7/2023

Using Archived Data and Specimen Collections to Advance Maternal and Pediatric HIV/AIDS Research (R21 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Investigating the Effects of Addictive Substances on Brain Developmental Trajectories Using Innovative Scalable Methods for Quantification of Cell Identity, Lineage and Connectivity (R01 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will support projects that investigate the effects of addictive substances on developmental trajectories of molecularly-defined central nervous system (CNS) cells and circuits. Emphasis is on carrying out systematic and highly granular quantitative characterizations of the impact of in utero and/or postnatal substance exposure on the numbers, spatial distribution and connectivity of molecularly-defined cells, across whole brains or within distributed circuits of clinical relevance. The ultimate goals of the program are to identify critical developmental windows and cellular mechanisms mediating the protracted developmental impact of addictive substances, and to inform clinical practice, by complementing the data from human longitudinal neuroimaging studies such as the HEALthy Brain and Child Development (HBCD) Study and the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study.

Deadline: 2/2/2023


NCI Pathway to Independence Award for Outstanding Early Stage Postdoctoral Researchers (K99/R00 - Independent Clinical Trial Required)

The purpose of the NCI Pathway to Independence Award for Outstanding Early Stage Postdoctoral Researchers (K99/R00) program is to increase and maintain a strong cohort of new and talented, NCI-supported, independent investigators. This program is designed for postdoctoral fellows with research and/or clinical doctoral degrees who do not require an extended period of mentored research training beyond their doctoral degrees. The objective of this award is to facilitate a timely transition of these fellows from their mentored, postdoctoral research positions to independent tenure-track (or equivalent) faculty positions.

Deadline: 2/28/2023

Pragmatic Trials across the Cancer Control Continuum (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Required)
