Early Stage Testing of Pharmacologic or Device-based Interventions for the Treatment of... - 0 views

  •  
    The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support the early stage testing of pharmacologic interventions with novel mechanisms of action or device-based interventions, for the treatment of symptoms or domains of altered functions in individuals with mental illness (e.g. schizophrenia, depression, autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc.). Early intervention studies are also encouraged where symptoms of a disorder have been identified in subjects (a prodromal phase), prior to full diagnostic criteria being met. Ultimately, this FOA is intended to support early stage testing of pharmacologic or device-based interventions using a protocol design where the presumed mechanism of action of the intervention is adequately tested, to provide meaningful information where target modulation yields a dose-dependent neurophysiological/clinical/behavioral effect. Pediatric, adult and geriatric focused interventions are appropriate for this FOA. This R33 FOA supports single phased clinical trial awards. Applicants proposing high risk projects are encouraged to apply to the companion FOA, RFA-MH-17-600. Also listed under R61/R33

Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury Peer Support Program Translational Resear - 0 views

  •  
    This funding opportunity seeks applications to support examinations of efficacy and effectiveness of peer-to-peer support interventions to translate and integrate content into the everyday routines of SMs to enhance psychological health readiness and mitigate negative behavioral health issues including suicide behaviors. Applications should focus on research to evaluate the efficacy and effectiveness of peer support programs that could be implemented in the military. Such interventions should leverage public health paradigms such as the social-ecological model, behavior change theory, and adult learning theory. Considerations such as how peer-to-peer support would accommodate military culture, including varied ranks and structure, gender, and occupation requirements should be taken into account. Interventions should be sensitive to the time and contextual constraints associated with occupation and lifestyle. Interventions that include an electronic or virtual component will be considered, but applicants should demonstrate that such components will ensure the interventions are interactive and engaging. Studies should consider ways to integrate content into the everyday routines of SMs to decrease burden and increase buy-in.

Mechanisms, Models, Measurement, and Management in Pain Research (R01 Clinical Trial Op... - 0 views

  •  

    The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to inform the scientific community of the pain research interests of the various Institutes and Centers (ICs) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and to stimulate and foster a wide range of basic, clinical, and translational studies on pain as they relate to the missions of these ICs. New advances are needed in every area of pain research, from the micro perspective of molecular sciences to the macro perspective of behavioral and social sciences. Although great strides have been made in some areas, such as the identification of neural pathways of pain, the experience of pain and the challenge of treatment have remained uniquely individual and unsolved. Furthermore, our understanding of how and why individuals transition to a chronic pain state after an acute injury is limited. Research to address these issues conducted by interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research teams is strongly encouraged, as is research from underrepresented, minority, disabled, or women investigators.
