Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research: Dynamic Neuroimmune Interactions in the Transition from Brain Function to Dysfunction (R01)
Notice Number: NOT-AA-17-006
NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research intends to promote a new initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications for research on Dynamic Neuroimmune Interactions in the Transition from Brain Function to Dysfunction. NCCIH is one of twelve other ICs signed on to this trans-NIH initiative. The goal of this FOA is to transform our understanding of how dynamic interactions among multiple cell types involved in neuroimmune inter actions (e.g., neurons, glia cells, neurovascular units) mediate the transition from normal brain function to disease conditions. With this FOA, we encourage projects that combine diverse expertise and use innovative approaches to address these questions at the molecular, cellular, and circuitry levels. The outcomes of this research will provide an integrated view of the dynamic changes among multiple neuroimmune components and how they contribute to the onset and progression of CNS disorders. This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. The FOA is expected to be published in fall 2017 with an expected application due date in winter 2017.
Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Point of Care Technologies Research Network Centers (U54)
Notice Number: NOT-EB-17-004
The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the National Institute on Aging, the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, and the Fogarty International Center intends to reissue RFA-EB-11-002, Point-of-Care Technologies Research Network (POCTRN), with modifications. POCTRN’s purpose is to drive the development and/or application of appropriate point-of-care technologies through collaborative efforts that merge scientific and technological capabilities with clinical need. The POCTRN Research Centers will create a national research network that works to build expertise in the development and/or application of integrated point-of-care systems that address unmet clinical needs in point-of-care testing through the creation of multidisciplinary partnerships. The NCCIH is interested in supporting centers to develop and validate technologies that assess symptoms commonly treated by the public with complementary and integrative health (CIH) approaches or technologies that monitor or enhance these approaches for symptom management, prevention of diseases, and promotion of well-being.
This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. The FOA is expected to be published in Summer 2017 with an expected application due date in Fall 2017.
