NCCIH Administrative Supplements to NCATS CTSA Programs for Scholars Pursuing Complementary Health Research Career Development

The purpose of the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) Administrative Supplement to the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS)-supported Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) program is to develop a pipeline of qualified clinician-scientist investigators with complementary and integrative health degrees and expertise conducting clinical or translational research on complementary clinical interventions for NCCIH high-priority research topics. This Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) will support additional scholar slots to those KL2 grants currently approved under the CTSA Program. Eligible scholars for the additional slots must have a doctoral, clinical complementary and integrative health degree (e.g.., D.A.O.M., D.C., D.O., D.P.T., and/or N.D.). | NOT-AT-20-010

Applications are due October 1, 2020. Please email if you are interested in submitting an application for these awards.

Georgetown University COS-PIVOT - Pivot combines the most comprehensive, editorially maintained database of funding opportunities with a database of pre-populated scholar profiles. Its proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to AU and matches them to current funding opportunities in the COS database. This allows users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside the University. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.

Funding Opportunity Announcements for the RADx-UP Initiatives: NIH has launched an unprecedented four-pronged initiative, entitled Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics, or RADx, to catalyze the scientific community to improve testing technologies, capacity, and accessibility for the country. As one of the four RADx components, RADx-Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) will establish a network of community-engaged projects to improve access to and acceptance of testing in underserved and vulnerable populations. The overarching goal of this $500M effort is to understand factors that have led to disproportionate burden of the pandemic on these populations, so that interventions can be implemented to decrease the disparities. Applications for this first phase will be accepted through August 2020. A second phase will be staggered to provide flexibility and to allow for adaption to the ever-changing needs that may be present as this pandemic evolves. Please email if you are interested in collaborating on an application for these awards.

As part of the RADx-UP initiative, NIH has released four funding opportunities to solicit community-engaged research on COVID-19 testing among underserved and/or vulnerable populations to both understand and close the disparity gap. These funding opportunities include:

  1. Emergency competitive revision applications to existing awards for large consortia, multi-site trials, centers and other current networks that have adequate capacity, infrastructure, and established community-engaged relationships to support large-scale testing interventions or have the capacity to ramp up quickly to reach underserved or vulnerable populations. (NOT-OD-20-121)
  2. Complementary emergency competitive revision opportunity which shifts eligibility to collaborative and individual research awards, generally focused on smaller underserved or vulnerable populations. (NOT-OD-20-120)
  3. Emergency competitive revisions to solicit research to understand the social, ethical, and behavioral implications (SEBI) of COVID-19 testing in these populations. (NOT-OD-20-119)
  4. A new Coordination and Data Collection Center (CDCC) award (U24), a key component of the consortium. The CDCC will serve as a national resource, working with NIH scientific staff and consortium members to provide overarching support and guidance in the following four domains: (1) Administrative Operations and Logistics, (2) COVID-19 Testing Technology, (3) Community and Health System Engagement and (4) Data Collection, Integration and Sharing. (RFA-OD-20-013)

Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute - PCORI helps people make informed healthcare decisions, and improves healthcare delivery and outcomes, by producing and promoting high-integrity, evidence-based information that comes from research guided by patients, caregivers, and the broader healthcare community.

National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities - NIMHD is soliciting research to support and accelerate human epigenomic investigations focused on identifying and characterizing the mechanisms by which social experiences at various stages in life, both positive and negative, affect gene function and thereby influence health trajectories or modify disease risk in racial/ethnic minority and other health disparity populations.

Funding opportunities are announced on our website as well as in our weekly newsletter. Fill out the form below to stay informed of upcoming application cycles and deadlines!
