Cancer Prevention, Control, Behavioral Sciences, and Population Sciences Career Development Award (K07)

PAR-16-284
Cancer Prevention, Control, Behavioral Sciences, and Population Sciences Career Development Award (K07)
Department of Health and Human Services
National Institutes of Healthcancer-682x1024

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

The overall goal of the NIH Research Career Development program is to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available in appropriate scientific disciplines to address the Nation’s biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. In addition to this opportunity, NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) support a variety of other mentored career development programs designed to foster the transition of new investigators to research independence. These other programs may be more suitable for particular candidates.  NIH also supports non-mentored career development programs for independent investigators. More information about Career programs may be found at the NIH Extramural Training Mechanisms website.

The objectives of the NIH Academic Career Award (K07) are to increase the pool of individuals with academic and research expertise in a specific area of biomedical research and to enhance the educational or research capacity at the grantee institution. The K07 Development Award supports more junior investigators who are interested in developing academic and research expertise in a particular health-related field, as a way to increase the overall pool of individuals capable of research or teaching in the identified area. Research, teaching, and leadership skills are to be learned during the tenure of the award. Curriculum building skills are encouraged.

The objective of the Cancer Prevention, Control, Behavioral Sciences, and Population Sciences Career Development Award (K07) is to increase the pool of individuals with academic and research expertise in these specific areas of biomedical research. The award provides salary and mentored research support for a sustained period of “protected time” to junior investigators who are interested in developing academic and research expertise in these particular health-related fields. Candidates must have no more than 8 years of research experience after the terminal doctoral degree at the time of the initial or the subsequent resubmission application; clinical training is not included within this 8-year limit. The expectation is that, through this sustained period of research career development and training under the guidance of an experienced mentor in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences, awardees will launch fully independent research careers and become competitive for new research project grant (e.g., R01) funding.

For the purpose of this funding opportunity, cancer control research is defined as “basic and applied research in the behavioral sciences that independently or in combination with biomedical approaches reduces cancer risk, incidence, morbidity, and mortality across the lifespan and over the entire process of carcinogenesis from primary behavioral prevention in youth, to screening, treatment, and survivorship” (Report of the NCI Cancer Control Progress Review Group, 1997-1998 ).

Purpose

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) focuses across the lifespan and for those living and spending time in non-traditional settings where exposure to environmental pollutants and toxins may occur. It supports NINR’s mission and research priorities to enhance health promotion and disease prevention; improve quality of life by managing symptoms of acute and chronic illness; and enhancing innovation in order to promote health equity and eliminate health disparities.  Nurses, the largest segment of the nation’s health care workforce, are well positioned to lead change and the transformation of health care and advance the health of individuals and communities.  It is well recognized that nurse scientists lead the way in patient-centered point-of-care, biobehavioral research with a primary focus on health promotion, symptom management, quality of care and quality of life.  NINR recognizes the importance of the interplay of behavioral, biological, and environmental determinants in the assessment of health and wellness.  Throughout its history, NINR has supported research on new and better ways to manage symptoms of acute and chronic illness, including those associated with environmental exposures.  Central to NINR’s mission is the importance of symptom-focused research in order to provide a better understanding of symptoms as well as symptom clusters that will improve clinical management of illness and that leads to more productive lives.  For this FOA, the goal of NINR’s focus on symptom management and other branches (i.e. wellness and self-management) is to support research that improves the understanding of symptoms and develops new strategies for symptom management that will improve quality of life in the presence of environmental exposures, in non-traditional settings, which may result in acute and chronic illness among children and older adults.

An understudied area that would benefit from interdisciplinary collaborative research (e.g., nurse researchers, environmental/occupational health scientists, community partners, economists, physicians, and toxicologists) is children and older adults living in non-traditional settings where environmental exposures result in health risks, symptoms, and other health conditions/diseases including lower respiratory diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, and cardiovascular diseases.  By partnering and collaborating with researchers and community partners with similar interests in environmental exposures that result in negative health outcomes across the lifespan, nurse researchers are well positioned to lead research and play a pivotal role in expediting environmental health within nursing science.  This FOA encourages applications from institutions/organizations to fill this need.  For purposes of this FOA, non-traditional settings, for these populations, include places such as community centers; pre-school and non-traditional school environments (e.g., churches, daycare, home-based schools, dormitories, alternative schools, and playgrounds); child and older adult foster care facilities; older adult day care facilities; half-way homes; assisted living and long-term care facilities.  NINR and NIEHS are also interested in studies that examine different approaches to reduce and/or eliminate environmental risks (i.e., limited exposure time) and prevent symptoms across the lifespan for those living or spending large amounts of time in non-traditional settings.  Therefore this FOA also encourages research that investigates effective environmental health interventions that reduce or eliminate symptoms associated with environmental exposures in non-traditional settings.

Additional Information

Agency Name: National Institutes of Health
Description: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to encourage interdisciplinary research aimed at promoting health, preventing and limiting symptoms and disease, and reducing health disparities across the lifespan for those living or spending time in non-traditional settings (i.e. playgrounds and nursing homes). These settings result in exposure to environmental pollutants and toxins that result in health risks, symptoms, and other health conditions/diseases; including lower respiratory disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, and complex environmental exposures that may be exacerbated by non-chemical stressors encountered in community settings, physiological function of organs and systems of the fetus/child/adolescence, and lower respiratory disease. Risk identification and symptom management include prevention and behavior changes and actions to maintain health and prevent disease with an emphasis on the individual, family, and community which will advance nursing science. For purposes of this FOA, non-traditional settings include, but are not limited to, places such as community centers; pre-school and non-traditional school environments (e.g., churches, daycare, home-based schools, dormitories, alternative schools, and playgrounds); child and older adult foster care facilities; older adult day care facilities; half-way homes; and assisted living and long-term care facilities.

Eligibility

Eligible Applicants:
Others (see text field entitled “Additional Information on Eligibility” for clarification)
Additional Information on Eligibility: There are two categories of children’s hospitals that may be eligible for CHGME payments in FY 2017, depending on the funding appropriated to the program – “Currently Eligible Hospitals” or “Newly Qualified Hospitals.”  New hospitals that are applying for the CHGME program may be hospitals that are eligible as a “Newly Qualified Hospital” or hospitals that are new to the CHGME program but qualify under the “Currently Eligible Hospitals” requirements. Currently Eligible Hospitals: Includes Children’s hospitals that meet the original eligibility requirements for CHGME payments that were established prior to the Children’s Hospital GME Support Reauthorization Act of 2013. These children’s hospitals must meet the following criteria:  It participates in an approved graduate medical education (GME) residency training program; It has a Medicare provider payment agreement; It is excluded from the Medicare Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) under section 1886(d)(1)(B)(iii)[1] of the Social Security Act and its accompanying regulations; and It is a “freestanding” children’s hospital. Newly Qualified Hospitals: As per the Children’s Hospital GME Support Reauthorization Act of 2013, a freestanding hospital may be eligible for CHGME payments depending on the level of funding appropriated to the program if it meets the following criteria:    It has a Medicare payment agreement and is excluded from the Medicare inpatient hospital prospective payment system (IPPS) pursuant to section 1886(d)(1)(B) of the Social Security Act and its accompanying regulations; Its inpatients are predominantly individuals under 18 years of age; It has an approved medical residency training program as defined in section 1886(h)(5)(A) of the Social Security Act; It is not otherwise qualified to receive payments under this section or section 1886(h) of the Social Security Act.  For those free-standing children’s hospitals that met the above requirements as of April 7, 2014, and the Secretary had not previously determined an average number of FTE residents under section 1886(h)(4) of the Social Security Act, the Secretary may establish such number of FTE residents for the purposes of calculating CHGME program payments. Any public or private nonprofit and for-profit children’s teaching hospital with an accredited residency training program which meets all of the above requirements for either category of eligibility may apply, though final e
