NSF Leading Culture Change Through Professional Societies of Biology (BIO-LEAPS)

Amount: $500,000 - $2,000,000 depending on type of award
Deadline: July 1, 2022

The Leading Culture Change through Professional Societies of Biology (BIO-LEAPS) program aims to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the biological sciences broadly by leveraging the leadership, broad reach, and unique ability of professional societies to create culture change in the life sciences. The Directorate for Biological Sciences at the National Science Foundation (NSF BIO) recognizes that culture change in the biological sciences is an urgent priority because it is foundational to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the discipline. The culture of a scientific discipline — defined here as the shared values, norms, traditions, and practices — can be thought of as an emergent property that results from years of experiences and interactions among scientists, their institutions, their professional societies, and their networks. It is increasingly recognized that the perceptions and attitudes of that culture can be quite variable for different individuals and are often negative for individuals historically excluded from the sciences (e.g., based on gender, gender identity, disability status, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, the intersections of these, and others). Therefore, this program is designed to foster the necessary culture change within biology to move towards an equitable and inclusive culture that supports a diverse community of biologists that more fully reflects the demographic composition of the US population.


NIH | NIOSH/CDC | NCIPC/CDC Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Admin Supp - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Amount: According to scope but no more than amount of parent award
Deadline: Due dates vary by awarding IC

NIH Health Equity and the Cost of Novel Treatments for Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Amount: NIA intends to commit $2 million in FY 2023 to fund 6 awards
Deadline: July 1, 2022

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites R61/R33 applications to address health equity, drug costs, and access to new therapeutics or repurposed drugs for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (ADRD). Successful applications will seek to identify preferences for pharmacological treatment among racial and ethnic minority people living with AD/ADRD, assess whether cost barriers to pharmacological care exist for racial and ethnic minority people living with AD/ADRD, and quantify expenditures and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) among people interested in receiving novel or repurposed drugs for AD/ADRD. This FOA supports a study development phase (R61) to conduct rigorous stakeholder engagement with racial and ethnic minority groups to identify, measure, and assess the demand for new and repurposed drugs. If successful, grantees will transition to an R33 phase for implementation of rigorous modeling of costs and health-related quality of life and dissemination of model findings.


NIH Cancer Control Research in Persistent Poverty Areas (U54 Clinical Trial Optional)

Amount: $7,500,000 direct costs
Deadline: July 6, 2022

Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) invites applications for Cancer Control Research in Persistent Poverty Areas (Persistent Poverty Initiative). The goal is to provide resources to support the time and effort of transdisciplinary teams, in collaboration with institutions, clinics, and communities/tribes, to develop a cancer prevention and control research program and provide support to early-career investigators that focuses on and serves populations living in persistent poverty areas. For this purpose, NCI will support several U54 Specialized Centers. The long-term goal of this initiative is to build capacity in persistent poverty areas to foster cancer prevention and control research and promote the implementation of programs and practices in institutions/clinics/communities/tribes to alleviate the effects of persistent poverty.


NIH Faculty Institutional Recruitment for Sustainable Transformation (FIRST) Program: FIRST Cohort (U54 Clinical Trial Optional)

Amount: $10,245,000 total direct costs
Deadline: July 12, 2022

The Faculty Institutional Recruitment for Sustainable Transformation (FIRST) program (consisting of two components: the FIRST Cohort and the FIRST Coordination and Evaluation Center (CEC)) has been developed to determine whether a systematic approach that integrates multiple evidence-based strategies including the hiring of faculty cohorts with demonstrated commitments to inclusion and diversity, will accelerate inclusive excellence, as measured by clearly defined metrics of institutional culture change, diversity, and inclusion. The FIRST program goals are to: (1) foster sustainable institutional culture change; (2) promote institutional inclusive excellence by hiring a diverse cohort of new faculty at the Assistant Professor (or equivalent) level; and (3) support faculty development, mentoring, sponsorship, and promotion. Funding for the FIRST program will come from the NIH Common Fund, which supports cross-cutting programs expected to have exceptionally high impact. All Common Fund initiatives invite investigators to develop bold, innovative, and often risky approaches to address problems that may seem intractable or to seize new opportunities that offer the potential for rapid progress.


NIH Administrative Supplements to Support Cancer Disparity Collaborative Research (Clinical Trial Optional)

Amount: $150,000 direct costs
Deadlines: September 06, 2022; January 23, 2023

The purpose of this trans-NCI Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to promote new cancer disparities research among investigators who do not normally conduct it and to encourage the partnership of experienced cancer research investigators with cancer disparities-focused researchers. This FOA is intended to accelerate and strengthen multi-disciplinary cancer disparities research in wide ranging areas. Cancer disparities research includes, but is not limited to basic, translational, behavioral, observational, interventional, environmental and population research studies that address the adverse differences in cancer incidence, prevalence, mortality, survivorship, burden and/or response to treatment in racial/ethnic minorities and/or underserved population groups. Proposed collaborations should focus on achieving research objectives that by necessity rely on diverse and complementary expertise, technical capabilities, and resource sets. Importantly, the supplemental request is required to be within the scope of the parent award and should expand the original aims to include a cancer disparity component and possible inclusion of international comparator cohorts.
