Title: Technical Assistance and Dissemination to Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities and Demonstration and Training Programs: National Technical Assistance Center on Transition for Students and Youth with Disabilities CFDA Number 84.326E
Due date: Aug 28, 2020
Brief Description: The purpose of the Technical Assistance and Dissemination to Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities program is to promote academic achievement and to improve results for children with disabilities by providing TA, supporting model demonstration projects, disseminating useful information, and implementing activities that are supported by scientifically based research.
Due date: Dec 3, 2020
Brief Description: The NIH is coordinating efforts for establishing a Developmental Genotype-Tissue Expression (dGTEx) project, to catalog and analyze transcriptional profiles from a wide variety of tissues obtained from neonates, children, and adolescents in a post-mortem setting. The purpose of this funding opportunity is for support of a Biospecimen Procurement Center (BPC) to enroll suitable pediatric donors and provide high quality tissue samples for analyses to the Laboratory, Data Analysis, and Coordinating Center (LDACC). The BPC will work closely with the LDACC to optimize tissue collection, preservation and transfer of specimens.
Due date: Nov 13, 2020
Brief Description: The purpose of this FOA is to solicit applications to develop and implement a Laboratory, Data Analysis, and Coordinating Center (LDACC) for the Developmental Genotype-Tissue Expression (dGTEx) Project. The LDACC will perform 2 major functions: a molecular laboratory to process tissue samples for sequencing and biobanking, and a data analysis and coordinating center to ensure coordination, monitor study progress and laboratory performance, perform basic analysis of data for gene expression analyses, and harmonize and submit datasets to be deposited in repositories such as the AnVIL (Analysis, Visualization, and Informatics Lab-space).
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports hybrid effectiveness-implementation trials for heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) diseases in the inpatient setting and applications that propose a multidisciplinary research team that includes expertise in inpatient clinical research, implementation research, and biostatistics. NHLBI is seeking applications that propose a trial testing an implementation strategy (or strategies) that was developed utilizing an implementation research framework and that aims to increase implementation of an evidence-based practice(s).

The NIDA Avant-Garde Award Program for HIV/AIDS Research supports exceptionally creative scientists, who propose high-impact research that will open new areas of HIV/AIDS research in the context of Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and/or lead to new avenues for prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS in people who use drugs (PWUD). The term “avant-garde” refers to highly innovative ideas and/or approaches that have the potential to be transformative.
Deadline: August 13, 2020
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) participating Institutes and Centers, in coordination with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), seek highly meritorious clinical trial applications proposing to explore and enable the development of safe and effective regenerative medicine (RM) interventions using adult stem cells.
Deadline: October 2, 2020
The intent of the FY20 PRARP ADTBI is to support high-impact, human-based development of robust diagnostic and/or prognostic biomarkers for chronic TBI as they pertain to AD/ADRD. It is anticipated that the proposed work will qualify clinically useful biomarkers for rapid transfer to clinical practice.
Deadline: July 21, 2020
The Discovery Research PreK-12 program (DRK-12) seeks to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science (STEM) by preK-12 students and teachers, through research and development of STEM education innovations and approaches. Projects in the DRK-12 program build on fundamental research in STEM education and prior research and development efforts that provide theoretical and empirical justification for proposed projects. Projects should result in research-informed and field-tested outcomes and products that inform teaching and learning. Teachers and students who participate in DRK-12 studies are expected to enhance their understanding and use of STEM content, practices and skills.
Deadline: October 7, 2020
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to establish a Coordinating Unit to support the Kidney, Urology and Hematology (KUH) Innovative Science Accelerator (ISAC-CU) Program. The ISAC-CU will administer a collaborative funding program intended to seed high-impact science of interest to the KUH research community.
Deadline: August 4, 2020
This milestone-driven Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for single-site clinical trials that: (1) address barriers that impede population-level implementation of case finding and cascade screening (i.e., blood relatives of FH index cases are systematically contacted based on their risk according to the pattern of inheritance); (2) explore implementation science methodologies to assess the uptake, cost-effectiveness, feasibility, and scalability of family-based cascade screening programs for familial hypercholesterolemia (FH); (3) develop or improve machine learning algorithms and data mining techniques to find high-risk individuals using electronic health records (EHRs); and (4) optimize treatment strategies and health outcomes.
