A R21 Grant is an Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant

Research Strategy: Applications should discuss how the technology will produce a measureable impact on a key aspect of social functioning (e.g., social communication, perception and understanding of self or others, etc.) rather than increasing or improving a discrete behavior (e.g., eye contact). In addition, applications must discuss how the novel technology would eventually be translated into mainstream or everyday contexts (e.g., the feasibility of fully customized technologies vs. commercially available products which have been augmented for specialized use). Applications that do not address how the novel technology will be translated into mainstream contexts will be considered incomplete.

Finally, when such features are relevant, applications should address test-retest reliability, optimal duration or length of measurement, scalability of the technology, and use of indicators or metrics to determine accuracy, thresholds, and/or fidelity.

Resource Sharing Plan: Individuals are required to comply with the instructions for the Resource Sharing Plans as provided in the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide, with the following modification:

All applications, regardless of the amount of direct costs requested for any one year, should address a Data Sharing Plan. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has established an informatics infrastructure to enable the sharing and use of data collected from human subjects in clinical research by the entire research community. Researchers funded by this FOA are expected to deposit data from human subjects into this infrastructure. Please refer to NOT-MH-15-012 for details regarding the available data repositories.
