National Institute of Arthritis & Musculoskeletal & Skin Diseases/NIH/DHHS: NIAMS Clinical Trial Planning Cooperative Agreement (U34)

Deadline: June 1, 2015

National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) invites applications for planning cooperative agreements (U34) (hereafter called “planning grants”) for investigator-initiated clinical interventional trials. The U34 planning grant is designed to permit the necessary planning, design, and preparation of documentation prior to implementation of investigator-initiated clinical trials. Completion of the agreed upon milestones of a U34 planning grant is recommended prior to submission of a clinical trial through a U01 clinical trial implementation grant application that will support the actual implementation and conduct of the study. The trials must be hypothesis-driven, milestone-defined, related to the research mission of the NIAMS and considered high priority by the Institute. This FOA will utilize the NIHU34 Clinical Planning Grant Cooperative Agreement award mechanism.

National Institute of Arthritis & Musculoskeletal & Skin Diseases/NIH/DHHS: NIAMS Clinical Trial Implementation Cooperative Agreement (U01)

Deadline: June 1, 2015

National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) invites cooperative agreement (U01) applications for implementation of investigator-initiated interventional clinical trials (all phases). Applications for clinical trials submitted to the NIAMS are normally expected to go through a two-part process, which begins with a U34 planning phase (Part 1) followed by an application for the U01 (Part 2). Investigators who have completed all necessary pre-trial planning and preparation through other means may apply for a NIAMS U01 without having applied for a U34. The NIAMS expects such trials to be hypothesis driven, milestone-defined, related to the research mission of the NIAMS, and considered high-priority by the institute. This FOA will utilize the NIH U01 Research Project – Cooperative Agreements award mechanism.

National Institute of Mental Health/NIH/DHHS: RFA-MH-16-400–Exploratory Clinical Trials of Novel Interventions for Mental Disorders (R33)

Deadline: May 15, 2015

National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invites applications for the efficient pilot testing of novel interventions for mental disorders in adults and children through an experimental therapeutics approach. Under this FOA, trials must be designed so that results, whether positive or negative, will provide information of high scientific utility and will support “go/no-go” decisions about further development or testing of the intervention. Studies of novel interventions include, but are not limited to behavioral, pharmacological, biologics-based, cognitive, device-based, interpersonal, physiological, or combined approaches. Support will be provided for testing and validating the intervention’s mechanism of action and for studies relating the mechanism to functional or clinical effects. Ultimately, this funding mechanism is intended to speed the translation of emerging basic science findings of mechanisms and processes underlying mental disorders into novel interventions that can be efficiently tested for their promise in restoring function and reducing symptoms for those living with mental disorders. This FOA will use the NIH R33 Exploratory/Developmental Grants Phase II award mechanism.
