Funding Opportunity Purpose: The NIH Exploratory/Developmental Grant supports exploratory and developmental research projects by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of these projects. These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on a field of biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research.
Application Due Date(s): The first standard application due date for this FOA is June 16, 2020. Standard dates apply.
AIDS Application Due Date(s): The first AIDS application due date for this FOA is September 7, 2020. Standard AIDS dates apply.
All applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization. All types of AIDS and AIDS-related applications allowed for this funding opportunity announcement are due on the listed date(s). Applicants are encouraged to apply early to allow adequate time to make any corrections to errors found in the application during the submission process by the due date.
Companion Funding Opportunity
PA-20-194, NIH Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Program (Parent R21, Clinical Trial Required)
PA-20-195, NIH Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Program (Parent R21, Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells (MDSCs) as Potential Therapeutic Targets in TB/HIV (R01/R21), expires 01/08/2022
Due Dates: January 8, 2020; January 8, 2021; January 10, 2022
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite applications for support of innovative clinical, preclinical and non-clinical research to determine the potential of MDSCs as a target for host-directed therapeutics for tuberculosis in the context of HIV co-infection, and to better understand the role of host-induced immunosuppression in the progression of Mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogenesis.
Application Due Date(s): Standard dates apply , by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
The NIMH Exploratory/Developmental Grant program supports exploratory and high-risk research projects that fall within the NIMH mission by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of these projects. These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methods, measures, models, or strategies, or to the generation of pilot or feasibility data. The preliminary work from these studies could lead to a major impact on biomedical, behavioral, or clinical mental health research, or on the delivery of mental health care.
Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R01/R21 Clinical Trial Optional), expires: 05/08/2022
Application Due Date(s): Standard dates apply, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages investigators to submit research grant applications that will identify, develop, test, evaluate and/or refine strategies to disseminate and implement evidence-based practices (e.g. behavioral interventions; prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment and disease management interventions; quality improvement programs) into public health, clinical practice, and community settings. In addition, studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures are encouraged.
Mechanisms of Mycobacterial-Induced Immunity in HIV-Infected and Uninfected Individuals to Inform Innovative Tuberculosis Vaccine Design (R01 and R21), expires: 01/14/2022
R01 Application Due Date(s): January 14, 2020, January 14, 2021, and January 14, 2022 by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
R21 Application Due Date(s): January 14, 2020; January 14, 2021, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages innovative, high risk, high impact research to investigate the innate and/or adaptive immune responses induced by mycobacterial infections, Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine (BCG) and/or candidate Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) vaccines in HIV-infected or uninfected individuals. Studies that will provide insights into the immune mechanisms required for protection from Mtb infection/re-infection or progression to active disease in latently infected individuals are encouraged. This research is expected to provide data to advance new hypotheses on immune mechanisms that contribute to the advancement of new tuberculosis (TB) vaccines, including in populations also infected with HIV.
Research on the Health of Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Populations (R01/R21), expires 01/08/2021
Application Due Dates: Standard dates/ AIDS dates apply, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) calls for research on the health of transgender and gender nonconforming people of all ages, including both youth and adults who are questioning their gender identity and those individuals who are making or who have made a transition from being identified as one gender to the other. This group encompasses individuals whose gender identity differs from the sex on their original birth certificate or whose gender expression varies significantly from what is traditionally associated with or typical for that sex.
