  •  
    This funding opportunity announcement encourages collaborative teams to target gaps in methods and outcomes regarding research participant recruitment and retention. The team approach encouraged by this initiative will be used to generate a research resource to advance processes for high yield recruitment, formulate breakthrough ideas, concepts and approaches to research participant recruitment and retention, strengthen outreach and community engagement practices, and devise improved communication strategies. Teams will demonstrate the success of these improvements by engaging a large diverse population. The primary outcome will be the development of a population of diverse community members ready to engage in NIA funded clinical research studies.

The problem that will be addressed is that there is currently no center for independent living (CIL) funded in American Samoa or Guam. The target population is individuals with disabilities. The CIL shall use the funds to provide services to individuals with a range of significant disabilities. The CIL shall (1) facilitate the development and achievement of independent living goals; (2) work to increase the availability and improve the quality of community options for independent living; (3) provide independent living services; (4) conduct activities to increase the capacity of communities within the service area of the CIL to meet the needs of individuals with significant disabilities; and (5) conduct resource development activities to obtain other funding.

PA-18-503: Advancing the Science of Geriatric Palliative Care (R21 - Clinical Trial Opt... - 0 views

  •  
    As the population of older adults continues to increase, the prevalence of diseases and conditions common in aging is expected to rise. Cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic lung diseases, dementia, and chronic kidney disease will likely continue to be the greatest sources of morbidity and mortality, as well as the costliest conditions to healthcare systems. However, older Americans infrequently have just one chronic health condition. In 2010, over two-thirds of Medicare beneficiaries had more than one chronic condition, and 14% had 6 or more chronic conditions. Disability and greater care needs associated with these conditions is leading to an increase in residence in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. Healthcare costs will continue to grow, with health-related spending expected to top 20% of gross domestic product by 2025.

PA-18-369: Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (Parent K01 -Independent Clini... - 0 views

  •  
    The purpose of the NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide support and "protected time" (three to five years) for an intensive, supervised career development experience in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence. Although all of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) use this support mechanism to support career development experiences that lead to research independence, some ICs use the K01 award for individuals who propose to train in a new field or for individuals who have had a hiatus in their research career because of illness or pressing family circumstances. Other ICs offer separate K01 FOAs intended to increase research workforce diversity.
