Use of Technology to Enhance Patient Outcomes and Prevent Illness (R01)

Deadline:

June 5, 2017
October 5, 2017

Purpose:

This opportunity will fund clinical research focused on the development and utilization of technologies that can help address patient outcomes. Relevant areas of technology include remote healthcare delivery to patients via telehealth, robotics to enhance medication adherence, on-site (e.g., clinical or home setting) care delivery, mobile heath to increase access and adherence, web-based decision support tools, and others.  Research projects may focus on assessment, diagnosis, intervention development, or intervention implementation.  Research projects that: 

  • incorporate emerging and cutting edge technologies to explain and predict patient trajectories
  • inform interventions
  • support real-time clinical decision making
  • facilitate effective long-term management of chronic illness are especially needed
Funding Organization(s):

Fogarty International Center, NIH

Focus Area(s):

Patient outcomes, telemedicine, mHealth

Global Non-communicable Diseases and Injury Across the Lifespan: Exploratory Research (R21)

Deadline:

Letter of Intent: November 14, 2017
Application: December 14, 2017

Purpose:

The Global Non-communicable Diseases and Injury Across the Lifespan research program aims to support innovative, collaborative biomedical or behavioral/social science research in the areas of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and injury throughout life in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Basic to clinical and translational research including implementation science approaches and interdisciplinary research on the intersection of a number of NCDs, or of HIV or other communicable diseases and noncommunicable diseases, are encouraged in addition to specific NCD or injury focused areas.

Funding Organization(s):

Fogarty International Center, NIH

Focus Area(s):

Non-communicable disease, injury

Technology and Outcomes in Low and Middle Income Countries (R21)

Deadline:

Letter of Intent: 30 days prior to application due date
Application: August 31, 2017

Purpose:

This opportunity will fund encourage exploratory/developmental research applications that propose to conduct research to develop or adapt innovative mobile health (mHealth) technology specifically suited for low and middle income countries (LMICs) and determine the health-related outcomes associated with implementation of the technology. Of highest interest are innovative, well-designed multidisciplinary projects that aim to generate generalizable knowledge for the field.

The overall goal of the FOA is to contribute to the evidence base for the use of mobile technology to improve clinical outcomes and public health while building research capacity in LMICs and establishing research networks in this area. Applicants are required to propose partnerships between at least one U.S. institution and one LMIC institution and the proposed research plan should strengthen the mHealth research capabilities at the LMIC institution.
