The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund is soliciting R21 applications for research to conduct economic analyses of prevention and health. Topics of potential interest to sleep and circadian clinical researchers may include economic evaluations of preventive interventions to identify cost-effective, cost-beneficial approaches to improving health across the lifespan; modeling the effects of prevention measures (e.g. using biomarkers of disease risk) on health costs and outcomes, individual and provider responses; and identifying strategies that promote adoption of effective prevention measures. The application due date is Oct. 26, 2010. Get complete details in the funding opportunity announcement (RFA-RM-10-015) on the NIH website.
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) have announced a competition for new and renewal applications to support national Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Centers (MMPCs). Phenotyping of potential interest to sleep and circadian researchers as part of a larger comprehensive team effort in this competition may include the assessment of circadian rhythm, “activity” and various behaviors, physiologic measurements such as ventilatory control, and stresses to uncover metabolic alterations. The application receipt date is Nov. 18, 2010. Get complete details in the funding opportunity announcement (RFA-DK-10-006) on the NIH website.
