NIH DIRH Funding Opportunity Announcements Webinar

Please join NCI’s Implementation Science Team and representatives from the Institutes and Centers contributing to the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) in Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health, for a webinar on the FOA, updated May 2016.

On May 8, 2016 the revised Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R01/R21/R03) was released. The purpose of these FOAs is to support innovative approaches to identifying, developing, testing, evaluating and/or refining strategies to disseminate and implement evidence-based practices (e.g. behavioral interventions; prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment and disease management interventions; quality improvement programs) into public health, clinical practice, and community settings. Conversely, there is a benefit in understanding circumstances that create a need to “de-implement” or reduce the use of strategies and interventions that are not evidence-based, have been prematurely widely adopted, yield sub-optimal benefits for patients, or are harmful or wasteful. In addition, studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures are encouraged.

The session will present an overview of the re-issued Trans-NIH FOAs for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health including the revised focus and opportunities in these re-issued FOAs. You are encouraged to bring your questions as representatives from multiple ICs will be available to address them. Please find the registration information below.

Detailed announcement

Coaching Groups for
Grant Proposal Writing & Professional Development

The National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) invites
post-doctoral/post-residency trainees and junior faculty to apply for the next Grant Proposal Writing and Professional Development opportunity:

Grant writing for Underrepresented Minorities Seminar:
Help, Opportunity, Experience (GUMSHOE)

GUMSHOE is one of four professional development-training programs that is committed to increasing the number of people from diverse backgrounds successfully obtaining NIH grants. It is hosted by the University of Colorado Denver and Washington State University.

GUMSHOE will link mentors from various disciplines who have highly successful track records in obtaining federal funding and grant writing coaches with early career faculty mentees from traditionally underserved and/or underrepresented minorities who wish to prepare an application to National Institutes of Health to conduct biomedical research. GUMSHOE will use a model based on innovation, best practices, and convene cohorts of junior faculty working with specific underserved and underrepresented populations.

Fall 2015-Winter 2016 GUMSHOE Details:

Dates: October 21-23, 2015 kick-off in Denver, Colorado, followed by distance communication and mentoring over the subsequent 6-months
Population of Focus: American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Other Pacific Islanders
Application Deadline: Monday, September 7 at 5:00 p.m. PST

To learn more about GUMSHOE, and to apply, please visit the website.

About NRMN
The National Institutes of Health-funded NRMN was created to address the unmet need for greater diversity in the biomedical and biobehavioral research workforce.

The NRMN is offering a series of four intensive coaching programs to support investigators from underrepresented populations who are at a later training stage, specifically postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty. These programs are designed to enhance participants’ career development, preparing them to meet each program’s ultimate goal: the submission of strong research and research career development proposals for funding in the biomedical or biobehavioral sciences. Learn more about the four programs here.
