Next Deadline: 4/25/2013

Details: https://spin.infoedglobal.com/Program/Opportunity/90702

The sponsor is pleased to announce that it is seeking applications to conduct research on policing for the improvement of law enforcement practices and operations. This program furthers the Department’s mission by sponsoring research to provide objective, independent, evidence-based knowledge and tools to meet the challenges of crime and justice, particularly at the State, local, and tribal levels.

 

Program: AETC Education for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants

Agency: HIV/AIDS Bureau

Next Deadline: 3/21/2013

Details: https://spin.infoedglobal.com/Program/Opportunity/31770

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits applications for the AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) Education for Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physician Assistants (PA) program. The intention of this funding opportunity is to establish nurse practitioner and physician assistant HIV/AIDS primary care education programs designed to train nurse practitioners and physician assistants in HIV/AIDS care and treatment. Several important changes in the U.S. population will both increase future demand for health care and affect the adequacy of the future health care workforce to meet that demand. These demographic changes include: (1) growth in the general population, (2) increases in the racial/ethnic diversity of the population, (3) changes in the age distribution of the population through the aging of the ‘baby boomer’ generation, and (4) changes in the gender distribution of health care providers. The greatest growth in demand for nurse practitioners and physician assistants has been in primary care.

 

Program: Understanding and Promoting Health Literacy

Agency: NIH, National Cancer Institute

Next Deadline: 5/6/2013

Details: https://spin.infoedglobal.com/Program/Opportunity/09741

The sponsors offer support for empirical research on health literacy concepts, theory and interventions as these relate to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ public health priorities that are outlined in its HealthierUS and Healthy People 2010 initiatives. Health literacy is defined as the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions.

 

Program: Etiology and Pathophysiology of Sleep Disordered Breathing in Pregnancy

Agency: NIH, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

Next Deadline: 5/6/2013

Details: https://spin.infoedglobal.com/Program/Opportunity/19695

The sponsors invite applications investigating: (1) mechanisms underlying the etiology of incident sleep disordered breathing (SDB) in pregnancy; (2) mechanisms coupling SDB to maternal heart, lung, and blood pathophysiology; (3) mechanisms through which SDB affects placental development and function and associated adverse pregnancy outcomes; and (4) mechanisms linking SDB to conditions in the intrauterine environment that result in altered fetal development and predispose offspring to obesity, metabolic, and cardiovascular disease. The goal of this program is to identify clinically relevant mechanisms of SDB etiology and pathophysiology that will open new avenues to develop therapeutic strategies to reduce the maternal and fetal risks of SDB exposure during pregnancy. Multi-disciplinary research teams are strongly encouraged.

 

Program: Mechanisms of Adverse Drug Effects in Children

Agency: NIH, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

Next Deadline: 5/6/2013

Details: https://spin.infoedglobal.com/Program/Opportunity/98448

The sponsor invites applications that propose to study the molecular, cellular and genetic mechanisms involved in the production of adverse drug reactions in children.

 

Program: Diet Composition and Energy Balance

Agency: NIH, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

Next Deadline: 5/6/2013

Details: https://spin.infoedglobal.com/Program/Opportunity/10378

The sponsors invite applications investigating the role of diet composition in energy balance, including studies in both animals and humans. Both short and longer-term studies are encouraged, ranging from basic studies investigating the impact of micro-or macronutrient composition on appetite, metabolism, and energy expenditure through clinical studies evaluating the efficacy of diets differing in micro- or macronutrient composition, absorption, dietary variety, or energy density for weight loss or weight maintenance.

Program: Alcohol Use Disorders: Treatment, Services Research, and Recovery

Agency: NIH, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism

Next Deadline: 5/6/2013

Details: https://spin.infoedglobal.com/Program/Opportunity/94841

Program: Behavioral and Social Science Research on Understanding and Reducing Health Disparities

Agency: NIH, Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research

Next Deadline: 5/10/2013

Details: https://spin.infoedglobal.com/Program/Opportunity/93313

The sponsors provide support for behavioral and social science research on the causes and solutions to health and disabilities disparities in the U. S. population. Health disparities between, on the one hand, racial/ethnic populations, lower socioeconomic classes, and rural residents and, on the other hand, the overall U.S. population are major public health concerns. Emphasis is placed on research in and among three broad areas of action: a) Public policy, b) health care, and c) disease/disability prevention. Particular attention is given to reducing “health gaps” among groups. Proposals that utilize an interdisciplinary approach, investigate multiple levels of analysis, incorporate a life-course perspective, and/or employ innovative methods such as system science or community-based participatory research are particularly encouraged.
