R03

Scope

The intent of this FOA is to support basic scientists, physician scientists (including individuals with DVM/VMD degrees), and/or clinicians in a collaborative effort to develop a multi-pronged research program focused on the etiology of a structural birth defect.  The R03 funding will specifically support formulation of the overall collaborative experimental approaches as well as the collection of preliminary data to support a future, larger grant application such as an R01.

The first aspect of developing an interdisciplinary collaboration is often time spent breaking down barriers between differing disciplines and establishing effective lines of communication.  For example, it is anticipated that pediatricians might need to learn more about developmental biology and genomics while developmental biologists might need to learn more about human genetics or epidemiology.  Therefore, part of the R03 should be devoted to the cross-disciplinary discussions necessary to build the foundation for the experimental approaches to tackle the problem at hand.

Depending on the combination of experimental approaches to be undertaken, the areas of expertise required are expected to vary.  For birth defects research to succeed in the long run, it is clear that interdisciplinary teams including but not limited to the following are necessary:  developmental biologists, cell biologists, geneticists, genomicists, clinicians, veterinarians with animal modeling and comparative medicine expertise, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, and/or bioinformaticists.  Therefore, the collaborative R03 should minimally include at least two PD/PIs with differing expertise.  Expertise from both the basic science side of the spectrum as well as the clinical side should be engaged in the R03 research.  The multiple PD/PI model is strongly encouraged but not required.

The scope of the research proposed is expected to vary as well.  The proposed studies should develop, adapt, and use approaches to identify genetic contributions as well as environmental interactions and other non-genetic determinants that contribute to various structural birth defects.  It is clear that genetic factors can be the primary cause of structural birth defects and/or may act in concert with environmental exposures.  Genetic and epigenetic factors provide a basis for functional studies in animal models or cell culture systems such as patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells.  Introducing genetic variants into animal model systems can bolster the causative role of the variant as well as provide insight into the embryological mechanisms underlying structural birth defects.  Depending on the birth defect in question, the most appropriate model(s) will vary.  Examples of research areas that are appropriate for this FOA are described below.  This is not intended to be all-inclusive, but is designed merely to provide guidance and direction for applicants.

Small Grant Program for NIDDK K01/K08/K23 Recipients (R03)

PAR-15-343
Limited Competition: Small Grant Program for NIDDK K01/K08/K23 Recipients (R03)
Department of Health and Human ServicesNIDDK
National Institutes of Health

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

The NIDDK encourages recipients of NIDDK-supported mentored career development awards (K01/K08/K23) to apply for grant support during the final two years of their awards through the NIDDK Small Grant Program (R03).  This additional support will enable K awardees to either expand their current research objectives or to branch out to a closely related pilot study, thus demonstrating their growth as investigators and their independence.  This should facilitate the transition to fully independent investigator status.  The added grant support in the latter years of a K award is expected to have the following benefits:

  • Increased fiscal independence for the award recipient as a precursor to complete independence.
  • An opportunity for the recipient to generate additional publications and data to support a subsequent R01 application.
  • An opportunity for the awardee to demonstrate additional success in the peer review process during the course of their career development award.

The NIDDK encourages every NIDDK-supported K01/K08/K23 recipient to apply for R01, or equivalent, grant support during the course of their career awards. According to NIH policy, K awardees may now receive concurrent salary support from an NIH career development award and a research grant under certain circumstances (http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-08-065.html ).  However, any K01/K08/K23 recipient who receives an R01, or equivalent, grant will no longer be eligible to receive an R03 grant under this R03 program.  The definition of ‘equivalent’ R01 grant is also in NOT-OD-08-065.

Additional Information

Agency Name: National Institutes of Health
Description: The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) announces a program that provides NIDDK-supported K01, K08, and K23 recipients the opportunity to apply for Small Grant (R03) support at some point during the final two years of their K award. Through the use of this mechanism, the NIDDK is seeking to enhance the capability of its K01, K08, and K23 award recipients to conduct research as they complete their transition to fully independent investigator status. The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects, including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. The R03 is, therefore, intended to support research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources and that may provide preliminary data to support a subsequent R01, or equivalent, application.

NIDCR Small Research Grants for Oral Health Data Analysis and Statistical Methodology Development (R03)

PAR-15-344
NIDCR Small Research Grants for Oral Health Data Analysis and Statistical Methodology Development (R03)oral health data analysis
Department of Health and Human Services
National Institutes of Health

Research Objectives

The NIDCR supports a broad portfolio of clinical trials and large-scale epidemiologic research projects that collect extensive data to fulfill each project’s specific aims. The resultant wealth of data generated by these studies often provides unique, cost-effective opportunities to investigate additional research questions or develop improved analytical approaches secondary to a project’s originally intended purpose.

The Small Research Grants for Data Analysis and Statistical Methodology Development (R03) program is designed to provide investigators with the support necessary to conduct such secondary data analyses or to develop new statistical methods for analyzing oral health data utilizing existing database resources. Research aims in these applications may be related to, but must be distinct from, the specific aims of the original data collection. The oral and craniofacial data may be derived from NIDCR-funded studies or from other sources.

Applications may propose to test new hypotheses in oral and craniofacial health, including oral and craniofacial health economics, using existing data. However, hypothesis-generating research in the absence of hypothesis testing will be considered for funding only if carefully described and justified.  Priority will be given to studies that address causality between risk factors and the oral health outcome(s) of interest. Studies simply describing correlations or associations between risk factors and oral health, especially when such associations have been demonstrated previously, are of lower program priority. Health economics studies could include natural history studies on the impact of changes in health care policy upon craniofacial-related treatment services delivery and quality, or comparative effectiveness research to evaluate variations in the cost and cost-effectiveness across types of treatment interventions for craniofacial diseases and disorders.

Applications may also propose new statistical methodologies for analyzing oral and craniofacial health data. However, the need for and applicability of any proposed new statistical methodologies to oral and craniofacial research must be justified, and the new methodology must be applied to an oral health dataset.

For applications focusing on behavioral and social sciences, priority will be given to studies that help to identify the mechanisms of behavior change or mechanisms of action of an intervention as opposed to correlates, predictors, mediators, moderators, risk and protective factors, etc., which may be candidate mechanisms, but have not been demonstrated as having a causal link with the outcome(s) of interest. This emphasis on identifying causal mechanisms means that certain local, state or national surveys may not be appropriate sources of data for some research projects. Also, applicants are encouraged to consider a range of data sources to test causal explanations for oral health behavior, for example, audiotaped or videotaped sessions, provided informed consents/assents are secured. Given that behavioral and social factors important in oral health are also important in other health conditions, data sets about nutrition, health education or promotion, parenting, tobacco use, adherence to provider recommendations, organizational behavior, etc., also may be relevant data sources. Additional information about the priorities of NIDCR’s Behavioral and Social Sciences Research Branch can be found here: http://www.nidcr.nih.gov/research/DER/BSSRB/.

Research Objectives

This FOA seeks to promote the entry of new investigators into research on drug abuse and HIV who will conduct studies on: the prevention of HIV acquisition and transmission; HIV treatment including toward a cure research; co-morbidities, co-infections, and complications; and behavioral and social science research to advance treatment and prevention, especially to address the Continuum of Care.

NIDA research on HIV/AIDS is broad-based and includes both domestic and international studies and ranges from basic research, including studies using animal models, in vitro, and ex vivo systems, to clinical research to implementation science research. A-START applications are welcome across the breadth of NIDA research.

Drug-using populations tend to be marginalized and difficult-to-reach, but achieving an AIDS-free generation will not be possible without understanding the issues facing these populations and developing and implementing effective interventions for them.  The drug-using populations that NIDA studies include both injection and non-injection drug users, youth, racial/ethnic/sexual minorities, and criminal justice populations.

Information about NIDA’s HIV/AIDS priority research areas is available at: http://www.nida.nih.gov/about/organization/arp/. Applications to A-START should address high priority HIV/AIDS research at the intersection of drug abuse and HIV research.

Investigators are encouraged, when appropriate, to utilize the Clinical Trials Network (CTN) (http://www.drugabuse.gov/CTN/Index.htm) infrastructure as a platform for their studies.

Special Considerations

HIV/AIDS Counseling and Testing Policy for the National Institute on Drug Abuse:  In light of recent significant advances in rapid testing for HIV and in effective treatments for HIV, NIDA has revised its 2001 policy on HIV counseling and testing.  NIDA-funded researchers are strongly encouraged to provide and/or refer research subjects to HIV risk reduction education and education about the benefits of HIV treatment, counseling and testing, referral to treatment, and other appropriate interventions to prevent acquisition and transmission of HIV.  This policy applies to all NIDA funded research conducted domestically or internationally.  For more information see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-DA-07-013.html.

National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse Recommended Guidelines for the Administration of Drugs to Human Subjects:  The National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse (NACDA) recognizes the importance of research involving the administration of drugs with abuse potential, and dependence or addiction liability, to human subjects.   Potential applicants are encouraged to obtain and review these recommendations of Council before submitting an application that will administer compounds to human subjects.  The guidelines are available on NIDA’s Web site at http://www.nida.nih.gov/about/organization/nacda/CouncilStatement.html.

Points to Consider Regarding Tobacco Industry Funding of NIDA Applicants: The National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse (NACDA) encourages NIDA and its grantees to consider the points it has set forth with regard to existing or prospective sponsored research agreements with tobacco companies or their related entities and the impact of acceptance of tobacco industry funding on NIDA’s credibility and reputation within the scientific community.  Please see (http://ww2.drugabuse.gov/about/organization/nacda/points-to-consider.html) for details.

Data Harmonization for Substance Abuse and Addiction via the PhenX Toolkit:  NIDA strongly encourages investigators involved in human-subjects studies to employ a common set of tools and resources that will promote the collection of comparable data across studies and to do so by incorporating the measures from the Core and Specialty collections, which are available in the Substance Abuse and Addiction Collection of the PhenX Toolkit (www.phenxtoolkit.org).  Please see NOT-DA-12-008 (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-DA-12-008.html) for further details.
