Title: Establishing Behavioral and Social Measures for Causal Pathway Research in Dental, Oral and Craniofacial Health (R01) (R21)
Announcement Number: (R01) PAR-14-143(R21) PAR-14-144
Deadline: (R21) Standard dates apply:
New: February 16, June 16, October 16
Resubmission, Revision: March 16, July 16, November 16
(R01) Standard dates apply:
New: February 5, June 5, October 5
Resubmission, Revision: March 5, July 5, November 5
Purpose: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to encourage the establishment of psychometrically-sound measures of specific behavioral or social phenomena that can be used to test causal hypotheses about behavioral and social contributors to dental, oral or craniofacial diseases. Measures can be developed de novo, or adapted from existing measures, e.g., those used in other fields or for different purposes. In either case, applications should include appropriate psychometric tests of the measure(s), and testing for acceptability of use with the target population. This announcement calls for the development of two types of measures: 1) measures of the health behaviors, social interactions, community characteristics, built environments, etc., targeted by behavioral or social interventions to improve oral health; and 2) measures of the hypothesized moderators and mediators of a behavioral or social intervention’s effect.
Award: (R21) The combined budget for direct costs for the two year project period may not exceed $275,000. No more than $200,000 may be requested in any single year. Applicants may request direct costs in $25,000 modules, up to the total direct costs limitation of $275,000 for the combined two-year award period. The total project period for an application submitted in response to this funding opportunity announcement may not exceed 2 years. (R01) The total project period for an application submitted in response to this funding opportunity announcement may not exceed 5 years. Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.

Title: NIH Director’s New Innovator Award Program (DP2)
Announcement Number: RFA-RM-13-007
Deadline: October 16, 2015, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Purpose: The NIH Director’s New Innovator Award addresses two important goals: stimulating highly innovative research and supporting promising new investigators. New investigators may have exceptionally innovative research ideas, but not the preliminary data required to fare well in the traditional NIH peer review system. As part of NIH’s commitment to increasing opportunities for new scientists, it has created the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award to support exceptionally creative new investigators who propose highly innovative research projects that have the potential for unusually high impact. This award complements ongoing efforts by NIH and its Institutes and Centers to fund new investigators through R01 grants and other mechanisms.
The NIH Director’s New Innovator Award program is different from traditional NIH grants in several ways. It is designed specifically to support unusually creative investigators with highly innovative research ideas at an early stage of their career when they may lack the preliminary data required for an R01 grant application. The emphasis is on innovation and creativity; preliminary data are not required, but may be included. No detailed, annual budget is requested in the application. The review process emphasizes the individual’s creativity, the innovativeness of the research approaches, and the potential of the project, if successful, to have a significant impact on an important biomedical or behavioral research problem.
The research proposed for a New Innovator Award may be in any scientific area relevant to the mission of NIH (biological, behavioral, clinical, social, physical, chemical, computational, engineering, and mathematical sciences). Investigators who were not selected for an award in prior years may submit applications this year as long as they retain their ESI (early stage investigator) eligibility; however, all applications must be submitted as “new” applications regardless of any previous submission to the program.
Award: Awards are multi-year funded and will be for up to the equivalent of $300,000 in Direct Costs each year for five years, plus applicable Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs to be determined at the time of award. The maximum project period is 5 years.

Title: Self-Management for Health in Chronic Conditions (R15)
Announcement Number: PA-14-345
Deadline: February 25, June 25, October 25 Standard dates apply, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Purpose: The purpose of this initiative is to support research in self-management focused across conditions. A recent report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) identifies the epidemic of chronic condition as the nation’s leading health challenge and calls for cross-cutting, coordinated public health actions for “living well with chronic illness”. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) addresses that recommendation by describing an initiative that focuses on self-management as a mainstream science in order to reduce the burden of chronic illnesses/conditions. Self-management is the ability of the individual, in conjunction with family, community, and healthcare professionals, to manage symptoms, treatments, lifestyle changes, and psychosocial, cultural, and spiritual consequences associated with a chronic illness or condition.
Award: Applicants may request up to $300,000 in direct costs plus applicable Facilities & Administrative (F&A)/indirect costs for the entire project period of up to 3 years. Note when a consortium is involved, the $300,000 direct cost limit is exclusive of consortium F&A costs. These can be requested in addition to the $300,000 direct costs limit. The maximum project period is 3 years.

Title: Biology of the Temporomandibular Joint in Health and Disease (R21)
Announcement Number: PA-14-359
Deadline: October 16, February 16, June 16 Standard dates apply, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Purpose: The purpose of this FOA is to encourage research that will advance our understanding of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in health and disease and to stimulate research that complements previous efforts and focuses on the biology of joint function and the tissues that make up the TMJ. A better understanding of total joint structure and mechanics including the interactions of the skeletal, muscular, nervous, immune, and circulatory systems using new in vivo and in vitro models is needed. An expected outcome of this FOA is new knowledge that will provide a basis for developing novel approaches to prevent, diagnose, assess risk, and treat temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD)
Award: The combined budget for direct costs for the two year project period may not exceed $275,000. No more than $200,000 may be requested in any single year. Applicants may request direct costs in $25,000 modules, up to the total direct costs limitation of $275,000 for the combined two-year award period.
