PAR 14-262 Long-Term Outcomes of Bariatric Surgery Using Large Datasets (R01)

http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-14-262.html 

Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will support applications that address the long-term (five-year minimum) clinical outcomes of bariatric surgery using large datasets within healthcare delivery organizations. Clinical outcomes of interest to NIDDK include obesity, body composition and obesity-related complications within the NIDDK mission such as diabetes, metabolic liver disease, kidney and urological diseases.  NIDA is interested in supporting those applications that examine the trajectories of substance use and associated high-risk behaviors among persons who have received bariatric surgery.  The funds will also provide support for a prospective element to the grant to acquire additional clinical measures or add elements to the current database to acquire outcomes described above.

 PAR 12-257--Time-Sensitive Obesity Policy and Program Evaluation (R01)

http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-12-257.html

Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is issued by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institute on Aging (NIA), Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This announcement establishes an accelerated review/award process to support time-sensitive research to evaluate a new policy or program expected to influence obesity related behaviors (e.g., dietary intake, physical activity, or sedentary behavior) and/or weight outcomes in an effort to prevent or reduce obesity.  This FOA is intended to support research where opportunities for empirical study are, by their very nature, only available through expedited review and funding.  All applications to this FOA must demonstrate that the evaluation of an obesity related policy and /or program offers an uncommon and scientifically compelling research opportunity that will only be available if the research is initiated with minimum delay. For these reasons, applications in response to this time-sensitive FOA are eligible for only one submission.  It is intended that eligible applications selected for funding will be awarded within 3-4 months after the application submission/receipt date. However, administrative requirements and other unforeseen circumstances may delay issuance dates beyond that timeline.

Applicants please note:  Resubmissions are not allowed for this funding announcement.  Please read the PAR very carefully.  Only time-sensitive studies will be given priority.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact one of the program officers listed below.

Home and Family Based Approaches for the Prevention or Management of Overweight or Obesity in Early Childhood (R21)


National Institute of Health

http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-10-128.html#PartI

 

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), and the Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research (OBSSR), National Institutes of Health, invites Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/organizations that propose randomized clinical trials testing novel home- or family-based interventions for the prevention or management of overweight in infancy and early childhood. Tested interventions can use behavioral (including dietary and physical activity), environmental, or other relevant approaches.  Applications should focus on infants and young children (to age six years) and emphasize the role of home environment and the influence of family/extended family members and parents (including guardians/substantial care-providers) within the child’s home environment.  The direct goal of this initiative is to fund research that will advance knowledge for innovative approaches to the prevention or management of overweight in children less than 6 years of age, with potential for future translation to applications either in the home or linked to a community setting.  Research should consider the familial mechanisms of behavior such as the role of families in the initiation, support, and reinforcement of fundamental food and beverage consumption, physical activity practices, and sedentary behaviors.  In addition it is of interest to elucidate various underlying behavioral determinants that are crucial to initiate or sustain changes in behaviors that impact energy balance.  Research designs may include linkages with other settings (e.g., daycare, pre-school, or other community venues) or other care providers (e.g., health care providers or teachers) but must include infants or children less than age six years as the primary study participant along with parents, and/or other family members residing with the child.  The overarching goal is to identify interventions that influence parent and child behaviors that contribute to inappropriate weight gain, and thereby improve subsequent health status in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood for which overweight is a known risk factor.

Program Announcement (PA) Number: PA-10-128
