Cancer (2)

Date Due: May 29, 2017
Woman to Woman
Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance

Woman to Woman, a program of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance, pairs gynecologic cancer patients with trained survivor volunteers who provide one-on-one emotional support and mentoring to women when they need it most. From the moment of diagnosis through the end of treatment, Woman to Woman survivor volunteers have helped hundreds of women and their families cope with gynecologic cancer.

A Woman to Woman program grant recipient will receive a one-year grant of either $50,000 for a hospital based program or $25,000 for a community based organization. This grant opportunity is available to institutions with a large volume of gynecologic cancer patients and a need to provide this type of support service to patients. Grants are provided to cover the cost of a part-time Program Coordinator’s salary (can be a new hire, or a reassignment), program costs, and the patient fund (no indirect costs are allowed). It is expected that each Woman to Woman program will become self-funding after the first year.

Dates: RFP Release Date: On or about May 2, 2017
Proposal submission date: July 10, 2017
Estimated award date: May 1, 2018
Presolicitation Notice: Request for Proposals (RFP) N01PC65003-74 "Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program"
Sponsor: NCI

The Surveillance Research Program (SRP) within the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) and the Prevention, Control and Population Sciences Branch (PCPSB) within the Office of Acquisitions (OA), National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, intends to solicit the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program.

The Product Service Code (PSC) is AN11 - Research and Development. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 541712 - Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering, and Life Sciences (except Biotechnology). NCI anticipates awarding multiple Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts to Offerors capable of performing all aspects of the work described in the Base Statement of Work (SOW) and meeting the mandatory criteria stated therein. The current SEER Base contracts expire on July 31, 2017 and the final Core Infrastructure Task Orders expire on April 30, 2018. It is anticipated that contracts will be awarded on or around May 1, 2018, for a period of performance of 10 years.

The purpose of this acquisition is to obtain the services of population-based central cancer registries to collect and report on population-based cancer incidence, treatment, and survival data. The SEER Program is the NCI’s major resource for measuring changes in incidence, morbidity, and mortality associated with cancer. The SEER Program serves three major thrusts of the NCI: cancer control, treatment, and epidemiology. The SEER Program was established in 1973 in response to the National Cancer Act of 1971, which mandated that NCI collect, analyze, and disseminate all data useful in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer (Public Law 92-218),

Career Development in Aging

Date Due: October 19, 2017), by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Paul B. Beeson Emerging Leaders Career Development Award in Aging (K76)
Sponsor: NIA

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites early-stage physician and other health-professional investigators with a commitment to aging to apply for this award to advance their research and leadership skills in their specialty and in the broader field of aging and geriatrics research.

The National Institute on Aging is pursuing this initiative to recruit new investigators who have begun to establish research programs and who, through this award, will be ready to assume leadership roles in their field of expertise and will be poised to change theory, practice and health outcomes related to the health of older individuals. Unlike other mentored K awards, candidates for this award must have received competitively awarded research support as a PD/PI at the faculty level or have otherwise leveraged faculty-level research support to develop an independent line of research. They must show evidence of leadership in the clinical or research domain.

Food Safety

Date Due: June 6, 2017
USDA-NIFA-FSMA-006355 Food Safety Outreach Competitive Grant Program
Sponsor: Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture

In FY 2017, the Food Safety Outreach Program will focus on delivery of customized training to members of the target audiences. New projects will focus on, but are not limited to, addressing knowledge and resource gaps for the target audience in the areas of pre- and post-harvest water testing and sampling, soil amendments, developing supply chain programs, and/or developing food safety plans. The program will continue to fund projects that develop bilingual and culturally appropriate training resources.

Health Data

Date Due: Application Deadline: May 24, 2017, 3:00 p.m. ET
Health Data for Action 2017 Call for Proposals
Sponsor: Robert Wood Johnson


The HD4A program will fund innovative research that uses the available data to answer important research questions. Applicants under this Call for Proposals (CFP) will write a proposal for a research study using data from either the Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI) or athenahealth. Successful applicants will be provided with access to these data, which are described in greater detail below. The HCCI and athenahealth data provide a wealth of private claims data and rich detail on care delivery and patient obesity-related measures, respectively. The proposed studies should enable relevant, innovative, and actionable research that uses the available data to answer important, policy-relevant questions.

Maternal and Child Health and HIV

Date Due: Standard AIDS dates apply, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization. All types of non-AIDS applications allowed for this funding opportunity announcement are due on
Promoting NICHD Areas of Research for HIV/AIDS in Maternal and Child Health (R01)
Sponsor: Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate HIV/AIDS research by addressing scientific areas of primary interest to NICHD, Maternal and Pediatric Infectious Disease Branch (MPIDB) and the Office of AIDS Research (OAR). This FOA will further explain our interests over the next three years.

Violence Prevention

Date Due: June 26, 2017
17JD06 Crisis Intervention Team Training Curriculum Enhancement
Sponsor: Department of Justice National Institute of Corrections

With the closure of state hospitals beginning in the 1970’s and the shrinking resources in many communities, there is a large and disproportionate number of seriously mentally ill individuals under correctional custody and supervision. Researchers document a serious mental illness in 15% of incarcerated men and 31% of incarcerated women, rates in excess of three to six times those found in the general population. The magnitude of the problem of untreated mental illness is revealed not only in the numbers, but also in the consequences. These individuals are more likely to experience suicide, victimization, violence, and unpredictable crises. Typically, when a correctional and detention center is faced with a crisis, the first reaction is to call upon SORT/CERT, or its equivalent, for a swift response and resolution. Correctional and detention leaders, community members and mental health advocates all agree upon the premise that first responders’ swift response is a necessary component to facility safety and security. Disparity occurs and criticism arises when there are unfortunate consequences to the response such as inmate injury, staff injury and/or property damage. Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT) training is the bridge to narrowing the gap by providing frontline staff with the needed skills and competencies to handle potentially dangerous individuals experiencing crisis situations. Additionally, it provides training for officers regarding behavioral health issues and educating community members about the role and needs of correctional and detention staff so both sides are more able to effectively utilize each other to benefit inmates and their families.
