FDA: Integrated Food Safety System Online Collaboration Development

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-FD-15-024

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to expedite program development to support critical federal-state collaboration necessary to plan and implement an integrated food safety system. Food can become contaminated at many different points – on the farm, in processing or distribution facilities, during transit, at retail and food service establishments, and in the home. In recent years, the FDA, in cooperation with other food regulatory and public health agencies, has done a great deal to prevent both intentional and unintentional contamination of food at each of these points.  The FDA has worked with other federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, and foreign counterpart food safety regulatory and public health agencies, as well as with law enforcement and intelligence-gathering agencies, and with industry, consumer groups, and academia, to strengthen the nation’s food safety and food defense system across the entire distribution chain. To be fully successful, the national food safety system must be built with continuous input from the FDA’s regulatory and public health partners.  Efforts shall facilitate information sharing and communication among all partners, and include infrastructure for a national electronic information-sharing mechanism. These actions will result in a national food safety system that identifies sources of risk throughout the system and reduces time to detect and respond to foodborne outbreaks. A public health driven, collaborative, and leveraged approach to food safety activities and responsibilities will be reflected in improved public sector resource utilization at a national level, which provides additional capacity for ensuring a safe and secure food supply. This funding opportunity was announced on May 8, 2015. The application deadline is July 15, 2015. For more information, please visit FDA's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

 

 

FDA: Development and Application of Case Control Analysis for Generic Drugs

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-FD-15-027

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to develop case control analysis methods that can be used in the analysis of post-market data related to generic drug substitution. A case-control analysis is a type of approach originally developed and used widely in epidemiology. It is a type of observational approach to compare signals for two groups balanced on known influential factors such as key disease-related, demographic, drug exposure, intrinsic and other variables thought to influence the observed outcome. In retrospective analyses evaluating associations between potential risk factors and clinical outcomes, different methods based on multivariate regression such as logistic regression and cox modeling can be used for exploration. Case control algorithms, such as those using propensity score matching, are potentially good tools that can be adapted to the realm of generic drugs to assess and compare post-market safety signals of different products. The purpose of matching is to control confounding and mitigate the effect of confounding even in the post-stratification analysis. Control records are selected so that the virtual control group must be at similar risk of developing the same clinical outcome at the absence of intervention. This funding opportunity was announced on May 5, 2015. The application deadline is July 2, 2015. For more information, please visit FDA's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

 

HRSA: Rural Child Poverty Telehealth Network Grant Program

Funding Opportunity Number: HRSA-15-145

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications for the Rural Child Poverty Telehealth Network Grant Program (RCP-TNGP). The RCP-TNGP is a three-year pilot program to support established telehealth networks in order to develop innovative ways to address the unique health care challenges faced by children living in impoverished rural areas. The rural area(s) to be served will be identified by the applicant, and should be supported by the use of county and sub-county level data to describe the poverty levels in their target area and the unmet needs of children to be served. Many of the largest drivers of health care costs fall outside the clinical care environment. These non-medical drivers have costly implications for health care utilization: 500,000 hospitalizations would be averted annually if the rate of preventable hospitalizations were the same for residents of low-income neighborhoods as for those of high-income neighborhoods, and hospital readmission rates are more closely related to community characteristics than to hospital characteristics. For the purposes of this FOA, applicant networks should include human/social service providers, such as providers of early childhood development, food and nutrition support and education, or economic support programs related to the family of the children served, to the extent that the provision of those services can be tied directly back to improving the health care status of low-income rural children served via telehealth and distance learning technology. In providing services beyond the clinical setting, applicants will be required to demonstrate how the provision of information and referral for those human/social services through the telehealth network will ultimately benefit the health of children served through this grant funding.   The goal of the RCP-TNGP is to demonstrate how telehealth networks can expand access to, coordinate and improve the quality of health care services for children living in impoverished rural areas and in particular how such networks can be enhanced through the integration of social and human service organizations. This funding opportunity was announced on May 7, 2015. The application deadline is June 22, 2015. For more information, please visit HRSA's Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

NIH Funding Opportunity Announcements:

 

NIH: Studies at Periviable Gestation

Funding Opportunity Numbers: PA-15-198, PA-15-199 and PA-15-200

One of the most complex areas in perinatal-neonatal medicine remains the care of the woman anticipating the delivery of an infant at the border of viability, including counseling her and her family. Equally difficult are the issues surrounding optimal care for such infants. For lack of appropriate phrase, such births are often referred to as "periviable" gestations. While managing and counseling women about to deliver at periviable gestations (20-25 weeks of GA), the healthcare team faces complex set of medical, emotional, and social challenges in an environment (clinical course) that may be rapidly changing. Even a few days of pregnancy prolongation can dramatically alter the potential for survival and long term outcome status, potentially altering treatment and counseling plans. To complicate matters, patient care practices have varied widely in this critical area of perinatal-neonatal medicine. To address the issues related to knowledge gaps in this area of perinatal/neonatal medicine, to develop expert consensus, and to identify specific areas for research and education, NICHD organized a workshop in February of 2013. These Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) stem from many of the recommendations made at the workshop, which the scientists across the spectrum of perinatal neonatal medicine felt to be extremely important and timely. These funding opportunities were announced on May 4, 2015. The initial application deadline for PA-15-198 and PA-15-199 is October 16, 2015.
