ACF: Building the Evidence for Family Group Decision-Making in Child Welfare

Funding Opportunity Number: HHS-2015-ACF-ACYF-CF-1008

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit proposals for 36-month demonstration projects to (1) conduct a Family Group Decision-Making (FGDM) program to effectively support family connections and engage family members in ways that achieve positive outcomes for the target population of children who are in, or at risk of entering, foster care and their families, and (2) analyze the implementation, impact and cost of the FGDM program, through a rigorous local evaluation and cross-site evaluation participation, and produce high level evidence of what worked and why, in order to contribute to the evidence base for FGDM practice. Grant projects will be designed to support families in making decisions and developing plans that nurture children in the target population, protect them from abuse and neglect, and, when appropriate, address domestic violence issues in a safe manner. Throughout the project period, grantees will devote a substantial amount of resources to the effective collection and analysis of data for evaluation purposes, and to the dissemination of evaluation findings regarding the impact of the FGDM process on safety, permanency and well-being outcomes for the target population of children and their families. This funding opportunity was announced on February 23, 2015. The application deadline is April 24, 2015. For more information, please visit ACF's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

NIH: CHEAR National Exposure Assessment Laboratory Network

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-ES-15-009

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is establishing an infrastructure, the Children's Health Exposure Analysis Resource (CHEAR), to provide the extramural research community access to laboratory and statistical analyses to add or expand the inclusion of environmental exposures in their research. CHEAR is being solicited through three Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs). This FOA solicits a network of laboratories providing a comprehensive suite of laboratory-based analytical services for samples derived from extant or ongoing children's health studies in the extramural research community. Each laboratory center, or Hub, within the network will provide analysis of environmental and endogenous exposures through both targeted and untargeted approaches. Each Hub will also provide analyses of biological response indicators such as DNA damage, oxidative stress, immune/inflammation indicators and other molecular markers. Hubs will incorporate a developmental core to develop novel measures for exposures and responses, expanding the number of current, commonly measured analytes, and developing new methods for detecting analytes in other biological matrices, in addition to serum, plasma or urine. The Children's Health Exposure Analysis Resource (CHEAR) is a multi-unit infrastructure to provide access to comprehensive exposure analysis that can be performed using biological samples collected in studies of children's health. This funding opportunity was announced on February 26, 2015. A letter of intent is due by March 30, 2015. The application deadline is April 30, 2015.

NIH: Developing Paradigm-Shifting Innovations for in vivo Human Placental Assessment in Response to Environmental Influences

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-HD-15-034

A growing literature suggests that environmental inputs to the placenta play a major role in determining the trajectory of placental development and functional sufficiency. Potential environmental sources of placental dysfunction may be readily quantified discrete physical entities such as cigarette smoke, alcohol, medications, infection, and indoor/outdoor air pollution, or they may be of a more general nature such as exercise, maternal diet and nutritional status, BMI or level of stress. These environmental factors may act directly on the placental cells or indirectly by altering the mother's physiology. Understanding the role of environmental factors on placental development will be essential to crafting strategies that optimize the chances for a successful pregnancy outcome. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) in support of the Human Placenta Project (HPP) aims to support the initial stages of development of entirely new or next-generation placental imaging and assessment technologies and methods that will increase our capability to assess human placental structure and function safely in vivo throughout gestation and to explore the impact of environmental influences on placental structure and function across pregnancy. This funding opportunity was announced on February 26, 2015. A letter of intent is due by May 1, 2015. The application deadline is June 1, 2015. For more information, please visit NIH's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

NIH: Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Advancing Biomedical Science Using Crowdsourcing and Interactive Digital Media

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-CA-15-006

This Big Data to Knowledge Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks to support the development of new or significantly adapted interactive digital media that engages the public, experts or non-experts, in performing some aspect of biomedical research via crowdsourcing. Applications are expected to pose a challenging biomedical research problem and propose the development of engaging interactive digital media that incorporates crowdsourcing as a fundamental component of how the problem is solved. The biomedical research problem should be amenable to one or more human computation approaches, as the users must be active participants in the analysis and/or interpretation of data, rather than acting primarily as data collectors or sources of data. This funding opportunity was announced on February 23, 2015. A letter of intent is due by May 3, 2015. The application deadline is June 3, 2015. For more information, please visit NIH's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

NIH: Sudden Cardiac Death in the Young: Population Based Studies

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-HL-16-002

Sudden death in the young (SDY) is a critical public health and scientific issue. There is significant scientific disagreement, fueled by lack of evidence, about the best approach to prevent SDY. Some experts support the implementation of cardiovascular (i.e., electrocardiogram) screening programs for infants, athletes, or all children, to identify at-risk individuals and to prevent sudden cardiac death (SCD). However, rational policy development in the area of screening and prevention is currently limited by the lack of prospectively defined epidemiological data, including incidence rates and etiology for SDY. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support mechanistic, genetic, and other studies to evaluate causes and consequences of and risk factors for sudden cardiac death in the young. Studies are required to use data and DNA samples from the Sudden Death in the Young Case Registry (described below) as foundations for their research. This funding opportunity was announced on February 25, 2015. A letter of intent is due by May 15, 2015. The application deadline is June 15, 2015. For more information, please visit NIH's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

NIH: Early-life Factors and Cancer Development Later in Life

Funding Opportunity Numbers: PA-15-124, and PA-15-125, PA-15-126

The purpose of these Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) is to stimulate research focused on the role of early-life factors in cancer development later in life. Given that current emerging evidence from limited research indicates a potentially important role for early-life events and exposures in cancer development, it is necessary to better understand (1) the early-life (maternal-paternal, in utero, birth and infancy, puberty and adolescence, and teenage and young adult years) factors that are associated with later cancer development, (2) how early-life factors mediate biological processes relevant to carcinogenesis, and (3) whether predictive markers for cancer risk based on what happens biologically at early-life can be measured and developed for use in cancer prevention strategies. Markers that predict malignancy or pre-malignant conditions would allow assessment of early-life exposures with relevant outcomes without having to wait 50 years for cancer development. These funding opportunities were announced on February 26, 2015. The initial application deadline for PA-15-126 is June 15, 2015. The initial application deadline for PA-15-124 and PA-15-125 is June 16, 2015. For more information, please visit NIH's Full Funding Opportunity Announcements for PA-15-124, and PA-15-125, PA-15-126.
