NIDDK FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENTS
Analysis, Technology, Leadership, Administration and Science (ATLAS) Center (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed) – RFA-DK-21-034. This Funding Opportunity Announcement intends to support the creation of an Analysis, Technology, Leadership, Administration and Science (ATLAS) Center that has the overarching goal of building the “go-to” open-access resource for the research community of mouse and human renal and genitourinary development and disease. The ATLAS Center will have scientific and administrative responsibilities including: 1) integrating and visualizing disparate datatypes and organs of the renal and genitourinary tract; 2) developing, adopting, or improving state-of-the-art computational tools and approaches to carry out analyses of multi-modal molecular and imaging data; 3) building interactive 2D/3D atlases and molecular maps with FAIR principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) to promote data retrieval, exploration, discovery, and analysis by the community; 4) developing, designing, maintaining, and enhancing an open-access, interactive public data and analysis portal; and 5) coordinating internal and external activities of the GenitoUrinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project (GUDMAP) and (Re)Building a Kidney (RBK) consortia, including administration of an opportunity pool to address scientific gaps and opportunities.

Fostering Research With Additional Resources and Development (FORWARD) Urology Centers (P20 Clinical Trial Not Allowed) The overall goal of the Fostering Research With Additional Resources and Development (FORWARD) Urology Centers program is to foster and expand the benign urologic research community. FORWARD Urology Centers will support a Research Project designed and conducted by a collaborative, multidisciplinary team comprising junior investigators and/or researchers new to the field of benign urologic research. It is expected that the Research Project Team will generate data to support one or more follow-on independent grant applications (e.g., R01s). The Center PD(s)/PI(s) will lead an Administrative (Project Support) Core to provide guidance to the Research Team to help ensure the research aims are met and to aid them in their successful integration into the broader benign urologic research field. To facilitate these goals, the Center will leverage intra- and extra-institutional resources, collaborations and facilities and engage as a member of NIDDK’s CAIRIBU (Collaborating for the Advancement of Interdisciplinary Research in Benign Urology) Program.

OTHER NIH FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENTS
Surgical Disparities Research (R01 – Clinical Trial Optional) National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support investigative and collaborative research focused on understanding and addressing disparities in surgical care and outcomes, in minority and health disparity populations. While the goal is to better understand and explore effectiveness of clinical intervention approaches for addressing surgical disparities, this initiative will also seek to identify multi-level strategies at the institutional and systems level.

Neuromod Prize Competition The National Institutes of Health has launched the first phase of the Neuromod Prize(link is external), a $9.8 million competition to accelerate the development of neuromodulation therapies — targeted treatments that adjust nerve activity to improve organ function. The competition seeks scientists, engineers, and clinicians to submit novel concepts and clinical development plans to demonstrate solutions for precisely stimulating the peripheral nervous system to treat disease and improve human health. The first phase of the competition will award up to $800,000. NIH plans to launch a second phase awarding up to $4 million, and a third phase awarding up to $5 million, subject to the availability of funds. Details of the requirements and registration for phases 2 and 3 are expected to be announced at a future time. NIH is launching only phase 1 at this time. Phase 1 participants will submit concept papers describing their proposed therapeutic approaches and their plans for conducting proof-of-concept studies, rationales for therapeutic use, and expectations for clinical impact.

NIH Director’s Pioneer Award Program (DP1 Clinical Trial Optional); NIH Director’s New Innovator Award Program (DP2 Clinical Trial Optional) (early stage investigators) The awards support individual scientists of exceptional creativity who propose highly innovative research projects with the potential to produce a major impact on broad, important areas relevant to the mission of NIH. To be considered pioneering, the proposed research must reflect substantially different scientific directions from those already being pursued in the investigator’s research program or elsewhere. Applicants must describe their innovative vision for addressing a major challenge or pursuing an outstanding opportunity of relevance to NIH, the importance of this challenge or opportunity, and your qualifications to engage in groundbreaking research within the application. No detailed scientific plan or specific aims should be provided since the research plan is expected to evolve during the tenure of he grant. EXPIRED
