DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE – Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (dod-CDMRP)
Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program Behavioral Health Science Award (link) – The overall goal of the BHSA is to advance behavioral health cancer science and fill gaps in the understanding of survivorship, including investigations into the psychological health and well-being of those affected by cancer (e.g., patients, family members). This may include investigations into studies that improve mental health and/or cancer related outcomes in defined populations. Studies also may assess the relationship(s) between behavioral and social functioning in relation to cancer initiation, progression, detection, treatment, and rehabilitation. Applications may propose behavioral science that examines quality of life studies, decision making and/or cognitive function research, development and testing of educational interventions, and symptom management (e.g., toxicity of treatment, palliative care, psychological distress and anxiety). Applications may target development of evidence-based practices, behavioral health science interventions and surveillance, and identification of psychosocial patient outcomes.
- Award: Up to $1,000,000 for up to 4 years.
- Deadline: LOI due July 30, 2020; full applications due Aug. 27, 2020.
FOUNDATION FOR FOOD AND AGRICULTURE RESEARCH (FFAR)
Crops of the Future Consortium: Accelerated Crop Breeding Tools RFA (link) – The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) is seeking applications through our Crops of the Future Consortium (COTF). COTF is a public-private collaborative formed by FFAR to solve research gaps common across the Ag industry. We are seeking innovative and potentially revolutionary research focused on ensuring under-appreciated crops also benefit from recent advances and emerging technologies for genotype-independent regeneration of fertile plants to foster application of rapid breeding methods such as in vitro double haploid production and genome editing. For 2020, FFAR anticipates funding up to two meritorious and transformative applications.
FFAR aims to support research that enables transfer of advanced breeding methods to accelerate the development of diverse crop species that are well suited to both sustainable agriculture and improved human nutrition. It is recognized that one of the biggest bottlenecks to applying such methods is efficient regeneration of different genotypes.
In accordance with the above intent, the successful research project should focus on a genotype-independent technology/approach that would be applicable to multiple crop species. Solutions that are customized to a single species or select genotypes are not considered within scope.
- Awards: $250,000 – $750,000 for 3 years. Matching funds are not required for this program.
- Deadline: July 8, 2020
- NOTE: Applicants must sign up for FFAR’s grant management system to submit an application. Applicants are encouraged to log into the system early in the proposal process to address additional questions not listed in the RFA.
NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH (NIH)
Request for Information (RFI): Input to Enhance the Impact of the NCI Experimental Therapeutics Program’s Chemical Biology Consortium on Cancer Drug Discovery and Development (link) – The goal of this Request for Information (RFI) Notice is to collect feedback about the Chemical Biology Consortium (CBC), the discovery engine of the NCI Experimental Therapeutics (NExT) Program. This information is being sought from the academic biomedical research community, research institutions, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, and for-profit providers of pharmaceutical and discovery services, as well as current participants in the CBC. The NExT Program is specifically interested in comments on the overall programmatic concept and operational aspects of the CBC. Any suggestions and/or recommendations for changes to improve the program are welcomed. Respondents are also asked to indicate their level of interest in responding to, and participating in, any future subcontracting opportunities in support of this initiative.
- Based on the response to this RFI, the NCI may issue subsequent RFI(s) and a Request for Proposals (RFP) before the end of the calendar year 2020.
- Deadline for responses: June 22, 2020. See RFI for instructions for submitting responses.
