R01

Effects of Gene-Social Environment Interplay on Health and Behavior in Later Life (R01)

Purpose – This initiative invites R01 applications for the development of multidisciplinary collaborations among existing longitudinal twin and family studies, with a focus on social and behavioral factors associated with aging outcomes. This FOA is intended to lay the foundation for future studies of the role of gene-environment interplay in accounting for links between social experiences and physical health, functionality, and psychological well-being in midlife and older age.

RC3

Recovery Act Limited Competition: Biomedical Research, Development, and Growth to Spur the Acceleration of New Technologies (BRDG-SPAN) Pilot Program (RC3)

Purpose – This initiative is supported by funds provided to the NIH under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009. The purpose of this pilot program is to address the funding gap between promising research and development (R&D) and transitioning to the market -- often called the “Valley of Death -- by contributing to the critical funding needed by applicants to pursue the next appropriate milestone(s) toward ultimate commercialization; i.e., to carry out later stage research activities necessary to that end.

Recovery Act Limited Competition: Academic Research Enhancement Award (R15)

Purpose – The purpose of the Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) program is to stimulate research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation's research scientists, but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. These AREA grants create opportunities for scientists and institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH programs, to contribute to the Nation's biomedical and behavioral research effort. AREA grants are intended to support small-scale health-related research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible, domestic institutions.

U54

The Human Connectome Project (U54)

Purpose – The overall purpose of this five year Human Connectome Project (HCP) is to develop and share knowledge about the structural and functional connectivity of the human brain. Under this initiative, “connectivity” is defined at the level showing structural and/or functional linkages from one major subdivision (cortical areas or subcortical nuclei) of the brain to others. It is recognized that many current technologies are best suited to collect data from cerebral cortex, though, to the extent that it is possible, subcortical connectomic data are also of great interest to the Project.

Mechanisms Underlying the Links between Psychosocial Stress, Aging, the Brain and the Body (R01)

Purpose – The purpose of this FOA is to encourage aging-relevant research elucidating the underlying mechanisms and processes that link psychosocial stressors to health outcomes in older individuals. Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research at multiple levels of analysis in animal models and in humans, integrating neuroscience and biological processes with behavioral and psychosocial approaches is strongly encouraged. Longitudinal research capturing processes of cumulative exposure to psychosocial stressors and dysregulation, and research exploring resilience and vulnerability risk factors underlying individual variability in stress-linked diseases in aging also are particularly encouraged.

The Role of Apolipoprotein E, Lipoprotein Receptors and CNS Lipid Homeostasis in Brain Aging and Alzheimers Disease (R01)

Purpose – This initiative encourages multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research to elucidate how Apolipoprotein E, lipoprotein receptors and CNS lipid homeostasis influence brain aging and the transition to neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The ultimate goal is to gain an in depth understanding of the mechanisms by which the Apolipoprotein E e4 allele confers increased AD risk for the purpose of advancing the overall search for efficacious AD treatments and Apolipoprotein E e4-directed therapeutics in particular.

R21

Optimization of Small Molecule Probes for the Nervous System (R21)

Purpose – The purpose of this funding opportunity is to facilitate the development of small molecule probes that will add a pharmacological dimension to basic neuroscience work, and enable proof-of-principle studies linking nervous system therapeutic targets, mechanisms or phenotypes to disease onset or progression.

Improving Diet and Physical Activity Assessment (R21)

Purpose – These initiatives seek innovative research to enhance the quality of measurements of dietary intake and physical activity. Applications submitted under this FOA may include development of: novel assessment approaches; better methods to evaluate instruments; assessment tools for culturally diverse populations or various age groups, including older adults; improved technology or applications of existing technology; statistical methods to assess or correct for measurement errors or biases, methods to investigate the multidimensionality of diet and physical activity behavior through pattern analysis; or integrated measurement of diet and physical activity along with the environmental context of such behaviors.
