Notice of NHLBI Participation in PAR-22-105 "Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)"

Notice of NHLBI Participation in PAR-22-105 "Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)"
National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support studies that will identify, develop, and/or test strategies for overcoming barriers to the adoption, adaptation, integration, scale-up, and sustainability of evidence-based interventions, practices, programs, tools, treatments, guidelines, and policies. Studies that promote equitable dissemination and implementation of evidence-based interventions among underrepresented communities are encouraged. Conversely, there is a benefit in understanding circumstances that create a need to stop or reduce (“de-implement”) the use of practices that are ineffective, unproven, low-value, or harmful. In addition, studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures are encouraged. Applications that focus on re-implementation of evidence-based health services (e.g. cancer screening) that may have dropped off amidst the ongoing COVID pandemic are encouraged.

Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE)

The Programs to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE) is an all-expense-paid Summer Institute, research education and mentoring initiative sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). This Summer Institute initiative addresses the difficulties experienced by junior investigators and transitioning postdoctoral scientists in establishing independent academic research careers and negotiating through the academic ranks. The primary outcome of this program is to increase the number of scientists and research-oriented faculty who are from backgrounds currently under-represented in the biomedical sciences and those with disabilities, by preparing them to successfully compete for external funding for scientific research in heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders.

An all expenses paid research career-advancing opportunity supported by NHLBI.

Nine Summer Institutes with mentored research training programs address difficulties in establishing independent research programs and in negotiating academic ranks.

Desired outcome is to improve recruitment and retention of faculty from disabled or underrepresented groups in heart, lung, blood, and sleep studies.

Training Includes:

  • Didactic courses

  • Grant writing and grantsmanship courses

  • Special topic conferences and lab skills

  • Mentoring networks

  • Small Research Project (SRP)
