NIA/NIH Research Resources for COVID-19 Research

Since late March NIA has been working with OBSSR, NLM (DR2), and PhenX Toolkit to facilitate the sharing of COVID-19-specific questionnaires, modules, and scales with the research community to encourage harmonization and discourage the development of one-off survey instruments. There are more than 60 different survey tools available organized by main topics across both sites (e.g., symptoms, mental health, perceptions, risk-reduction behaviors, personal and family impacts). We continue to streamline the process and now have an online intake form for researchers interested in submitting an instrument to share. Note that the intake form is hosted on the DR2 site, but submissions will be considered for both DR2 and PhenX. Extramural investigators are invited and encouraged, as applicable, to (1) use these sites to identify existing tools when you are considering adding COVID-19-specific items to an ongoing study rather than developing something new; and (2) use the intake form (https://dr2.nlm.nih.gov/datacollection) to submit for consideration a unique COVID-19-specific instrument you have already developed, tested, and administered that you are willing to share publicly for use by other researchers. Email NIHCovid19Measures@od.nih.gov with any questions.

NSF Implementation of OMB Memo M-20-17: Administrative Relief for Recipients and Applicants of Federal Financial Assistance Directly Impacted by the Novel Coronavirus due to Loss of Operations

The National Science Foundation has issued Important Notice No 146 to the Community Regarding COVID-19. NSF has also issued additional guidance on NSF's implementation of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum (M-20-17), entitled, Administrative Relief for Recipients and Applicants of Federal Financial Assistance Directly Impacted by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) due to Loss of Operations. NSF has implemented flexibilities authorized by OMB from specific administrative, financial management and audit requirements contained in 2 CFR Part 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards without compromising accountability requirements.

Any questions about the policies described in the NSF Guidance should be directed to policy@nsf.gov. Questions specific to a particular award should be directed to the cognizant NSF Program Officer. NSF is working to update existing FAQs and other resources to reflect NSF's new guidance and will keep you informed on our website at: nsf.gov/coronavirus.

PAR-20-103: Collaborative Program Grant for Multidisciplinary Teams (RM1 - Clinical Trial Optional), Oct 9

Many research questions in biomedical science can be pursued by single investigators and their close collaborators, and are adequately supported by individual and multiple PD/PI research grants. However, the scope of some scientific problems is beyond the capabilities of a small group of investigators. Such complex and challenging research questions benefit from the integrated efforts of teams of research laboratories employing complementary approaches and having multiple areas of intellectual and technical expertise, and the necessary resources to accomplish a unified scientific goal. Such team-based efforts can produce convergent, lasting scientific benefits with high impact, such as the creation of new disciplines of study, resolution of long standing or intractable problems, or definition of new areas that challenge current paradigms. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages Collaborative Program Grant applications from institutions/organizations that propose to conduct research to address complex and challenging biomedical problems, important for the mission of NIGMS, through deeply integrated, multidisciplinary research teams.

PIs must submit their application as a Limited Submission through the Office of Research Application Portal: https://app.wizehive.com/webform/USCgrants by October 09, 2020.

USAMRMC FY18-FY22 Broad Agency Announcement for Extramural Medical Research, Sep 30

Description:
The USAMRMC mission is to provide solutions to medical problems of importance to the American Service member at home and abroad, as well as to the general public at large. The scope of this effort and the priorities attached to specific projects are influenced by changes in military and civilian medical science and technology, operational requirements, military threat assessments, and national defense strategies. Extramural research and development programs play a vital role in the fulfillment of the objectives established by the USAMRMC. Projects funded under this BAA must be for basic and applied research to support scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing the state of the art or increasing knowledge or understanding rather than focusing on development of a specific system or hardware solution. Research and development funded through this BAA are intended and expected to benefit and inform both military and civilian medical practice and knowledge.
