A consortium of NIH Institutes have re-announced a program (R01) to identify, develop, and refine effective and efficient methods, structures, and strategies to disseminate and implement research- tested health behavior change interventions and evidence-based prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment, and quality of life improvement services into public health and clinical practice settings. The consideration of sleep and/or circadian factors may impact the selection of behavioral intervention strategies, outcome effect sizes, and diagnostic procedures. Standard application dates apply.

The NIH has announced a new program (RC4) to enhance, develop, or evaluate methodologies to improve the efficiency, validity, and credibility of comparative effectiveness research (CER) studies. The domains of sleep disorders medicine and chronobiology may offer appropriate CER questions about "real-world" treatments/procedures that potentially impact large diverse populations, an array of health outcomes, delivery system strategies/costs, and other priorities listed in the RFA. The application due date is Feb. 26, 2010 (one time competition). Read the complete funding opportunity announcement on the NIH Web site.
The NIH has announced a new program (RC4) to develop and implement critical research innovations in one or more of the following five thematic areas: 1. Applying Genomics and Other High Throughput Technologies; 2. Translating Basic Science Discoveries into New/Better Treatments; 3. Using Science to Enable Health Care Reform; 4. Focusing on Global Health; 5. Reinvigorating the Biomedical Research Community. Research supported by the program should have high short-term impact. The application due date is March 15, 2010.
