Funding Opportunity from the National Cancer Institute

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Comprehensive Partnerships to Advance Cancer Health Equity (CPACHE) (U54)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites cooperative agreement (U54) applications for the implementation of Comprehensive Partnerships between institutions serving underserved health disparity populations and underrepresented students (ISUPS) and NCI-designated Cancer Centers (CC). The purpose of this FOA is to continue fostering and supporting intensive collaborations among investigators at ISUPS and CCs in order to develop stronger national cancer programs aimed at understanding the reasons behind the significant cancer disparities and related impacts on these populations.

Application Due Date: April 1, 2015 (Letter of Intent due 30 days prior to due date)

Learn more here: PAR-15-103

Eligibility Information:

Each partnership must include both types of institutions: 1) an institution serving underserved health disparity populations and underrepresented students (ISUPS); and 2) an NCI-designated Cancer Center (CC).  ISUPS with medical schools, or with more focused education and research programs (e.g., Masters and PhD programs), as well as those that offer only baccalaureate degrees and Tribal Colleges may all participate in this initiative.

 About the NCI:

The NCI coordinates the National Cancer Program, which conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer, rehabilitation from cancer, and the continuing care of cancer patients and the families of cancer patients.  The Institute supports education and training in fundamental sciences and clinical disciplines for participation in basic and clinical research programs and treatment programs relating to cancer through career awards, training grants, and fellowships. 

 Please share this NIH funding opportunity with your colleagues.

Funding Opportunity from the National Institute on Drug Abuse

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Seek, Test, Treat and Retain For Youth and Young Adults Living with or at High Risk for Acquiring HIV (R01)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to examine delivery models of HIV-focused services (testing, linkage, engagement and retention in care) for high risk or already HIV+ infected youth and young adults. Applications should incorporate substance use into study aims and service delivery objectives should address access to substance use prevention, screening, and treatment.  The developmental, structural, and systemic factors related to serving youth need to be clearly incorporated into study aims, rather than simple incremental refocusing of existing interventions to younger people.

Application Due Date: April 14, 2015 (Letter of Intent due February 15, 2015)

NIDA’s mission is to lead the Nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction.  This charge has two critical components. The first is the strategic support and conduct of research across a broad range of disciplines. The second is ensuring the rapid and effective dissemination and use of the results of that research to significantly improve prevention and treatment and to inform policy as it relates to drug abuse and addiction.

Grants and Funding from the National Institutes of Health

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

The Specialized Information Services Outreach and Special Populations Branch (OSPB) manages and develops programs to eliminate disparities in health information access. OSPB achieves their mission by providing community outreach support, by training health professionals on NLM’s health information databases, and by designing websites that discuss the concerns of various racial and ethnic groups.

As OSPB reimagines our NLM-OSP-L Listserv, we will continue to share NLM/NIH funding opportunities of interest to health professionals and public health workers dedicated to health information outreach.

NLM supports a wide variety of research-related programs:

For example, the NIH’s Resource Grants include Education Projects (R25). R25 codes indicate programs that promote an appreciation for and interest in biomedical research, provide additional training in specific areas, and/or to develop ways to disseminate scientific discovery into public health and community applications.

Thank you.
