Meharry-Vanderbilt Community Engaged Research Core
Closing Dates: Aug 1, 2011, Nov 1, 2011, Feb 1, 2012, May 1, 2012
The Meharry-Vanderbilt Community Engaged Research Core invites proposals for activities that promote ongoing, mutually beneficial, health research partnerships between community organizations and academic researchers. These grants are intended to build the capacity of community organizations to engage in health research while, at the same time, building the capacity of academic health researchers to work with community organizations. The following key components must be evident in your proposal: (1) community input in the development and implementation of the project; (2) the roles and responsibilities of each partner (including the responsibility for obtaining Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval for research involving human subjects when applicable; (3) the ways in which the proposed work is mutually beneficial to each partner. Funds may be used for activities such as: (1) Identifying community health priorities and potential research questions; (2) capacity-building activities, such as trainings and workshops; (3) piloting and evaluating changes in practice, protocol, or policy; (4) analyzing existing data sets; (5) collection or analysis of pilot data. Funds may not be used for: (1) operating support for existing projects or programs, including salary for existing staff; (2) activities that are not tied to the development of academic-community research partnerships focused on health. Proposal outcomes: Priority will be given to projects that result in tangible products that can be achieved in the time frame proposed. Examples might include, but are not limited to: (1) pilot data for a larger research study; (2) Publications in professional journals, popular media, or electronic media; (3) white paper, testimony, or policy briefing for advocates or policy-makers; (4) Evaluation of changes in clinical or agency practice or policy; (5) curricula/training modules related to academic/community partnerships.
Small Grants Program for Cancer Epidemiology (R03)
Closing Date: Nov 19, 2011
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), encourages the submission of Small Research Grant (R03) applications for research on cancer etiology and epidemiology. The overarching goal of this FOA is to provide support for pilot projects, testing of new techniques, secondary analyses of existing data, development and validation of measurement methods, linkage of genetic polymorphisms with other variables related to cancer risk, and development of innovative projects for more comprehensive research in cancer etiology and epidemiology. -Mechanism of Support. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will utilize the NIH Small Grant (R03) mechanism. -Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
Exploratory/Developmental Grants Program for Basic Cancer Research in Cancer Health Disparities (R21)
Closing Date: Nov. 23, 2011
Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD) and the Division of Cancer Biology (DCB), at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), invite grant applications from investigators interested in conducting basic research studies into the causes and mechanisms of cancer health disparities. These awards will support pilot and feasibility studies, development and testing of new methodologies, secondary data analyses, and innovative mechanistic studies that investigate biological/genetic bases of cancer health disparities. This FOA is also designed to aid and facilitate the growth of a nationwide cohort of scientists with a high level of basic research expertise in cancer health disparities research and to provide resources for those investigators that may need additional support on their path to successfully compete for R01/R01* funding in basic research in understanding cancer health disparities. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, PAR-09-161, which encourages applications under the Cooperative Agreement (U01) mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds. Budgets of up $275,000/two years (not to exceed to $200,000/year) direct costs are allowed.
Small Grants for Behavioral Research in Cancer Control (R03)
Closing Date: Dec. 20, 2011
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is intended to provide support for either new investigators in cancer-related behavioral research, or investigators who want to refocus their research interests toward behavioral research in cancer control. The program is designed to facilitate the growth of a nationwide cohort of scientists with research experience in behavioral cancer control and design of public health interventions. Preliminary data for the proposed projects are not required. Overarching goals are to: (1) encourage new investigators to enter the field of behavioral research in cancer control and initiate their long-term career development aimed at becoming independent investigators in the field, and (2) support research on transfer of behavioral science knowledge into cancer control practice. -Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Small Grant (R03) mechanism. -Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
National Cancer Institute Program Project (P01) Applications
Closing Date: Jan. 04, 2012
With this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) invites applications for investigator-initiated program project (P01) grants. Proposed program projects may address any of the broad areas of cancer research, including (but not limited to) cancer biology, cancer treatment, cancer diagnosis, cancer prevention, and cancer control. Basic, translational, clinical, and/or population-based studies in all of these research areas are appropriate. Each Program Project application must consist of at least three component projects. The component projects must share a common central theme, focus, and/or overall objective. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Program Project (P01) grant mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.
