Applications due March 17, 2021

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications from investigators who strive to expand their research trajectories through the acquisition of new knowledge and skills in the areas of basic psychological processes, sociological processes, and/or biomedical pathways—expertise that is beyond and enhances their current areas of expertise. The program will support career development experiences and a small-scale research project that will provide experienced investigators with the scientific competencies required to conduct independent research projects that more thoroughly investigate interrelationships among behavioral, biological, endocrine, epigenetic, immune, inflammatory, neurological, psychological, and/or social processes. Applicants may propose research that involves non-human animals, secondary data analyses, or other career development projects that do not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary study to a clinical trial. Applicants are permitted to propose research experience within a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor. Eligible candidates are independent investigators at mid-career faculty rank or level.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is designed specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary study to a clinical trial.Applicants proposing Basic Experimental Studies with Humans (BESH) should apply to the companion FOA PAR-20-226.
