Please note the following important change in NIH grant submission policy!!!

“The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) announce a change in policy on application submissions. Effective immediately, for application due dates after April 16, 2014, following an unsuccessful resubmission (A1) application, applicants may submit the same idea as a new (A0) application for the next appropriate due date. The NIH and AHRQ will not assess the similarity of the science in the new (A0) application to any previously reviewed submission when accepting an application for review. Although a new (A0) application does not allow an introduction or responses to the previous reviews, the NIH and AHRQ encourage applicants to refine and strengthen all application submissions.”

JHGCCO Request for Applications (RFA):
Round 5 (released on January 7, 2014)

The NIH-funded Johns Hopkins Global Center on Childhood Obesity (JHGCCO) is seeking applications for research that focuses on time-sensitive changes in environments or policies that may reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity. Projects should take a systems perspective and have the potential to inform the development or confirmation of community- or population-based interventions. We invite applications from investigators at all career levels in the United States and globally.

This solicitation is for research that requires short-cycle funding decisions (‘rapid response’ studies). Awards will be announced approximately three months from the RFA release date. Eligible studies must be associated with actual policies or processes that are pending in real world settings (e.g., natural experiments), requiring “time-sensitive” data collection that would not be possible if the funding decision were made on a regular 9-month NIH review cycle. The JHGCCO RFAs are re-issued every six months, in January and July. Download the full RFA here.

In Round 5, we will be able to fund one project for a maximum of $30,000 total costs. A 1 page concept summary of the proposed research is due on February 3, 2014. After review of the research concepts, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal (5 page limit). For those applicants, full proposals will be due on March 12, 2014. The final awardee will be notified by April 9, 2014. See previous award recipients.

An optional Informational Teleconference will be held on January 22, 2014 at 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Prospective applicants can register at http://www.jhsph.edu/research/centers-and-institutes/johns-hopkins-global-center-on-childhood-obesity/opportunities/RFA_teleconference_registration.html to receive information about how to access the teleconference.

CALL FOR PAPERS

DISPARITIES IN CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH:
Examining the Contributions of Social and Behavioral Factors

In recognition of the need to address health disparities and to encourage research, Health Psychology is calling for manuscripts that reflect the breadth of issues related to health disparities (Kazak, Bosch, & Klonoff, 2012). We have published four series on Infectious Disease, Cancer, Pain and Discrimination. The goal for health disparities papers is to encourage research that seeks to explain or address disparities, not merely to report serendipitous differences among groups. Empirical papers are preferred although theoretical or review papers will also be considered if they make a unique contribution to understanding disparities. Papers across the lifespan, including pediatric samples, are encouraged. We are pleased to announce the following new topic for a special issue in the series:

Disparities in Cardiovascular Health: Examining the Contributions of Social and Behavioral Factors. Despite improvements in their management and treatment, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) remain the leading cause of disability and death in the United States. Robust evidence documents significant disparities in disease burden by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. Eliminating health disparities, and in particular disparities in health across the socioeconomic spectrum and among race/ethnic groups, is one of the primary goals of the national disease prevention roadmap, Healthy People 2010 and was codified as Public Law 106-525: The Minority Health and Health Disparities Research and Education Act of 2000. To reduce disparities in health, we must improve our understanding of factors driving group-level variations in health status. These disparities are likely to be a function of cultural, institutional and individual-level factors. Research is needed to understand the ways these factors, both uniquely and in combination, influence health outcomes. The investigations must shed light on differences among and within groups in disease prevalence, course and expression, and in risk factors, moderating and mediating mechanisms, treatments, and access to care.

Submissions to this call should emphasize health psychology and address unique relationships within a specific group or provide comparative data across groups with a clear focus on disparities in CVD. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to, studies of genetic, biological, and/or psychosocial risk; investigations of specific population factors and associated risk markers and/or disease outcomes; studies of discrimination in its various forms and its effects on disease risk and care disparities; examinations of neighborhood-level or other system-level factors; and studies on resilience. Studies employing a variety of methodologies including epidemiological approaches, population and community-cohort designs, laboratory and ambulatory methodologies, psychophysiological investigations, proof-of-concept interventions, randomized controlled trials, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses of relevant topics will be considered. A brief email outlining planned submissions is required and must be received no later than February 15th to John.Ruiz@unt.edu.The deadline for submitting complete manuscripts is June 30, 2014.

We encourage manuscripts from junior investigators, investigators from underrepresented groups, and from senior, established researchers and working groups. Authors should contact John M. Ruiz, PhD (John.Ruiz@unt.edu) and Elizabeth Brondolo, Ph.D. (brondole@stjohns.edu) with inquiries. Papers must be prepared in full accord with the Health Psychology Instructions to Authors and submitted through the Journal portal. All submissions will be peer reviewed. Some papers not included in this issue may be accepted for publication in Health Psychology as regular articles. Please indicate in the cover letter accompanying your manuscript that you would like to have the paper considered for the Special Issue on Health Disparities/Special Issue on Disparities in Cardiovascular Health: Examining the Contributions of Social and Behavioral Factors issue. All inquiries are welcomed and may be direct to Drs. Ruiz and Brondolo via email.
