Description

The LRP TVA supports applications that will fulfill an extraordinary vision for dramatically improving the quality of life of persons with lupus using an intervention at the individual and/or health care system level. This award requires a plan that will test and achieve the vision through the translation of research ideas which, when addressed, will result in a near-term impact on the quality of life of persons living with lupus. Preliminary data are required. Human subject research and clinical trials are allowed under this program announcement.The CDMRP encourages research on health areas and conditions that affect women uniquely, disproportionately, or differently from men, including studies analyzing sex as a biological variable. Such research should relate anticipated project findings to improvements in women's health outcomes and/or advancing knowledge for women's health.PIs seeking funding for preliminary and feasibility research to support a future LRP TVA application should consider the FY24 LRP Transformative Vision Development Award (Funding Opportunity Number HT942524LRPTVDA).

DoD Peer Reviewed Alzheimer’s Transforming Research Award
Dept. of the Army -- USAMRAA
The Dept. of the Army -- USAMRAA has posted a grant opportunity titled "DoD Peer Reviewed Alzheimer's Transforming Research Award". This grant is in the category of Science and Technology and other Research and Development. The grant is a non-cost sharing grant and is open to all eligible applicants. The close date for this grant is June 20, 2024. The estimated total program funding is $5,000,000 and it is expected that 5 awards will be given.

The grant is particularly interested in risk reduction considering Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or military service. The proposed research should significantly accelerate efforts in AD/ADRD research and demonstrate a significant impact on improving patient care and/or quality of life. The research may include identifying risk factors, implementing strategies to reduce AD/ADRD risk, understanding the role of social determinants of health, and conducting informational epidemiology. The grant requires that the project addresses a critical unmet need, represents the population it intends to benefit, and demonstrates cultural competence. The research should be robust and provide significant impact on the AD/ADRD field. Collaborative community partner approaches are strongly encouraged, especially for projects involving clinical research. The results and outcomes of the research must be relayed back to the research/community to allow for continued knowledge building. Community collaboration is required for clinical research projects and encouraged for preclinical studies. The grant also includes an option for a Career Initiation or Transition (CIT) Partnership, where two principal investigators can collaborate to address a research question. The CIT PI must have nominal research support in the field and can be an early-career researcher or an investigator new to the military health, TBI, or AD/ADRD field(s).
