Title: Biologic Factors Underlying Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Health Disparities (R01 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 10/05/2018

Amount: Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. Period is 5 years.

Description: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to encourage research on biologic factors that mediate the differences in prevalence and severity of Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial (DOC)-related diseases and conditions in oral health disparities populations. It is long recognized that certain racial and ethnic populations suffer an increased burden of DOC diseases and conditions, such as oral/oropharyngeal cancers, early childhood caries (ECC), dental caries, and periodontitis. For each of these diseases, substantial racial and ethnic differences exist in prevalence, severity, persistence and/or disease progression. Biologic factors are believed to play a role in oral health disparities in addition to behavioral, social, and environmental factors. Because critical scientific gaps remain in our understanding of underlying biologic mechanisms that could contribute to these differences, it is difficult to develop targeted therapeutic regimens for those in greatest need.

How to Apply: Notify RGSO of your plan to submit a proposal. The preaward team will work with you to help you complete your proposal, and RGSO will submit your proposal.

Title: SOCIOLOGY PROGRAM - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Awards (Soc-DDRI)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: 10/29/2018

Amount: SIn this solicitation, a DDRI award may not exceed $16,000. The amount includes both direct and indirect costs for the entire duration of the award.

Description:the Sociology Program provides support to improve the conduct of doctoral dissertation projects undertaken by doctoral students enrolled in U.S. IHEs when the dissertation research is conducted in a scientifically sound manner and it offers strong potential for enhancing more general scientific knowledge. The Sociology Program funds doctoral dissertation research to defray direct costs associated with conducting research, for example, dataset acquisition, additional statistical or methodological training, meeting with scholars associated with original datasets, and fieldwork away from the student's home campus. Projects are evaluated using the two Foundation-wide criteria, intellectual merit and broader impacts. In assessing the intellectual merit of proposed research, four components are key to securing support from the Sociology Program: (1) the issues investigated must be theoretically grounded; (2) the research should be based on empirical observation or be subject to empirical validation or illustration; (3) the research design must be appropriate to the questions asked; and (4) the proposed research must advance our understanding of social processes, structures and methods.

How to Apply: Notify RGSO of your plan to submit a proposal. The preaward team will work with you to help you complete your proposal, and RGSO will submit your proposal.
