General FOAs for Social and Behavioral Research • Parent R01: Research Project Grant http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-260.html • General announcement • NCI Omnibus R21: NCI Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Program, PAR-12-145, http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/par-12-145.html • Purpose: to encourage exploratory and developmental research projects by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of these projects. • NCI Omnibus R03: NCI Small Grants Program for Cancer Research PAR-12-144, http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-12-144.html • Purpose: supports small research projects on cancer that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources, including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology.
Specific FOAs: • Small Grants for Behavioral Research in Cancer Control (R03) • PAR-12-035 (R03), expires October 2012. • Purpose: to enhance basic and applied behavioral sciences research in the context of cancer control, with a secondary goal of attracting new investigators to the field from a variety of biomedical, behavioral and public health disciplines • Behavioral and Social Science Research on Understanding and Reducing Health Disparities • PAR-10-136 (R01) • PAR-10-137 (R21) • Purpose: Behavioral and social science research on the causes and solutions to health and disabilities disparities in the U. S. population. Emphasis is placed on research in and among three broad areas of action: 1) public policy, 2) health care, and 3) disease/disability prevention.
Specific FOAs: Dissemination/Implementation • Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-10-038.html (R01) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-10-040.html (R21) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-10-039.html (R03) • Purpose: Methods, structures, and strategies that propose to disseminate and implement health behavior change interventions and evidence-based prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment, and quality of life improvement services into public health and clinical practice settings.
Specific FOAs: Epidemiology, Diet and Physical Activity Assessment • Small Grants Program for Cancer Epidemiology PAR-12-039 (R03) • Purpose: to provide support for pilot projects, testing of new techniques, secondary analyses of existing data, development and validation of measurement methods, linkage of genetic polymorphisms with other variables related to cancer risk, and development of innovative projects for more comprehensive research in cancer etiology and epidemiology. • Improving Diet and Physical Activity Assessment PAR-12-197 (R21)PAR-12-198 (R01) • Purpose: encourages innovative research to enhance the quality of measurements of dietary intake and physical activity
