Promoting Reproductive Health for Adolescents and Adults with Disabilities

NICHD - March 30, 2022

This award supports research that addresses gaps in the understanding of best practices for promoting reproductive health across the transition from adolescence to adulthood for persons with disabilities.

While awareness of health disparities related to race and ethnicity, sex, and gender has increased, awareness of health disparities among persons with disabilities (PWD) has lagged. Systematic reviews and empirical studies have shown that PWD experience disparities in preventive health care. Qualitative research interviewing physicians in general practice reveals that only a minority feel very confident in their abilities to care for PWD. Reproductive health care is particularly problematic. Providers struggle to assign decision-making priority between persons with disabilities and their caregivers. Providers also report discomfort defining the full set of appropriate preventive screening procedures and preventive care options and assessing patients’ ability to participate or use them.

Deadline: March 30, 2022
Letter of intent due February 28, 2022

Fertility Status as a Marker for Overall Health

NIH / NICHD R01 - February 19, 2022

The purpose of this funding opportunity (FOA) is to support research that explores the premise that fertility status can be a marker for overall health. Chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and obesity can impair fertility; however, less is known about the extent to which fertility status can impact or act as a marker for overall health. Data suggest that infertility is not necessarily a unique disease of the reproductive axis but is often physiologically or genetically linked with other diseases and conditions. Recent epidemiologic studies demonstrate links between fertility status in both males and females and various somatic diseases and disorders. Taken together, these data strongly suggest that fertility status can be a window into overall health.

Deadline: February 19, 2022

See announcement for details

Addressing Mental Health Disparities Research Gaps: Aggregating and Mining Existing Data Sets for Secondary Analyses

DHHS R01 - October 18, 2022

NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards

NIH Office of Strategic Coordination - August 2, 2022

This award provides an opportunity for exceptional junior scientists to accelerate their entry into an independent research career by forgoing the traditional post-doctoral training period. Though most newly graduated doctoral-level researchers would benefit from post-doctoral training, a small number of outstanding junior investigators are capable of directly launching an independent research career. The Early Independence Award is intended for these select junior investigators, who have already established a record of scientific innovation and research productivity and have demonstrated unusual scientific vision and maturity. Typical post-doctoral training would unnecessarily delay their entry into independent research. The NIH Director’s Early Independence Award also provides an opportunity for institutions to invigorate their research programs by bringing in fresh scientific perspectives of the awardees they host.

To be eligible, investigators, at the time of application, must have received their most recent doctoral degree or completed clinical training within the previous fifteen months or expect to do so within the following twelve months.

Deadline: August 2, 2022

See the announcement for full details

Research Coordinating Center to Support Climate Change and Health Community of Practice

NIH - August 25, 2022

The Climate Change and Health Initiative (CCH) is a NIH-wide research effort established to address the effects/implications of climate change on the health of populations and create the evidence base to inform the response needed to improve health outcomes. To support this initiative NIH seeks applications to create a Research Coordinating Center to support the development of an NIH CCH Community of Practice (COP) by managing and supporting current CCH research and capacity building efforts and supporting the expansion of the COP in the long term. Climate change greatly elevates threats to human health across a wide range of illnesses and injuries. Adverse health impacts include asthma, respiratory airway and pulmonary diseases, cardiovascular disease and stroke, heat-related illness and deaths, allergic hypersensitivities and infectious diseases (notably, water-borne, food-borne, vector-borne, and zoonotic diseases), reproductive, birth outcome, and developmental effects, mental health disorders, and extreme weather-related morbidity and mortality Strong evidence indicates that climate change also disproportionately adversely affects communities that experience social and environmental vulnerabilities.

Deadline: August 25, 2022

Research Opportunities for New and "At-Risk" Investigators to Promote Workforce Diversity

NIH / NIDA - September 8, 2022

Three NIH organizations, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the National Institute of Mental Health, invite applications from New Investigators and At-Risk Investigators from diverse backgrounds - including those from groups underrepresented in the health-related sciences - that propose independent research projects that are within the scientific mission areas of the participating NIH Institutes. Of particular interest is receipt of proposals from:

  1. Individuals from racial and ethnic groups that have been shown by the National Science Foundation to be underrepresented in health-related sciences on a national basis; and
  2. Individuals with disabilities, who are defined as those with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, as described in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended.

NIH expects efforts to diversify the workforce to lead to the recruitment of the most talented researchers from all groups; to improve the quality of the educational and training environment; to balance and broaden the perspective in setting research priorities; to improve the ability to recruit subjects from minority and other health disparity populations into clinical research protocols; and to improve the Nation's capacity to address and eliminate health disparities.

Mid-Career Advancement Grants

National Science Foundation - March 1, 2023

Seeks proposals to offer an opportunity for scientists and engineers at the mid-career stage to substantively enhance and advance their research program and career trajectory. Mid-career scientists are at a critical career transition stage where they need to advance their research programs to ensure long-term productivity and creativity but are often constrained by service, teaching, or other activities that limit the amount of time devoted to research. The MCA program provides protected time, resources, and the means to gain new skills through synergistic and mutually beneficial partnerships, typically at an institution other than the candidate's home institution. Partners from outside the Principal Investigator's (PI) own sub-discipline or discipline are encouraged, but not required, to enhance interdisciplinary networking and convergence across science and engineering fields. Research projects that envision new insights on existing problems or identify new problems made accessible with cutting-edge methodology or expertise from other fields are encouraged.

Deadline: March 1, 2023

National Institutes of Health - July 8, 2022, etc

Several components of the National Institutes of Health have issued a joint statement regarding roughly four dozen existing, open funding opportunities that there is special interest in receiving proposals that are focused on reducing the health threats posed by climate change across the lifespan; improving the health of people who are at increased risk from or disparately affected by climate change impacts; and building health resilience among individuals, communities, Tribal Nations, and nations around the world, thereby increasing health equity.

In response to this NOSI, topics of interest to NICHD include, but are not limited to, research on:

  • Measurement and surveillance of the impact of climate change on health and NICHD priority populations, including pregnant women, children, and people with disabilities
  • Effects of climate change on population dynamics including fertility, mortality and morbidity, and population movement, distribution, and composition
  • Data collection on how climate change affects the health, development, and productivity of NICHD priority populations using population-based demographic or economic approaches and scientifically valid probability samples
  • Impact of climate change on reproductive health; infertility; and maternal, prenatal, pregnancy, and child health; child development; and disability.
  • Interactions between climate change and land use and their effects on population dynamics and the health of NICHD priority populations
  • The nexus of climate, food systems and health including the impact of climate change on sustainable and resilient food systems and the ability to meet public health goals, including dietary guidance, especially infant feeding practices.
  • The intersection of climate and vector-born disease (susceptibility to and treatment of) and their impacts on outcomes such as migration and nutrition status among NICHD priority populations
  • The impact of climate on pre-existing food insecurity and resulting intervention choices to address child or family malnutrition (over-/under nutrition) particularly in low-resource settings in the United States and globally, as well as reciprocity between food insecurity and climate

The following topic areas are NOT within scope for this NOSI:

  • The impact of climate change on the environment, natural resources, or the economy without a clear link to public health or health-related outcomes.
