The Trans-NIH Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences Research Opportunity Network (OppNet) solicits Research Project Grant (R01) applications to investigate the biopsychosocial "mechanisms" underlying reciprocal interactions between the processes of sleep and circadian regulation and function with behavioral and social environment processes. There is a need for greater understanding of the dynamic relationships between behavioral and social environment factors on the one hand and the basic mechanisms of sleep-wake and circadian regulation and function on the other. This FOA is not intended to support research on or development of treatments or interventions for disorders of sleep or circadian rhythms. The application due date is Oct. 8, 2010. Get complete details in the funding opportunity announcement (RFA-HD-11-101) on the NIH website.
The Trans-NIH Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences Opportunity Network (OppNet) also solicits exploratory/developmental (R21) research applications examining basic mechanisms of "self-regulation," i.e., the ability to manage emotional, motivational and cognitive resources in the service of higher order goals. Areas of potential interest to sleep/circadian neurobiologists may include elucidating basic processes and mechanisms involved in self-regulation of cognition, emotion and behavior; relations among various self-regulatory functions; and changes in self-regulatory functions over time, across different social and environmental contexts, and across the lifespan. The application due date is Jan. 6, 2011. Get complete details in the funding opportunity announcement (RFA-AG-11-010) on the NIH website.
