Grant Description
This PAR supersedes PAR-01-056 published in 2001. The goal of this initiative is to encourage innovative clinical and epidemiological research into new therapies or means of prevention of digestive and liver diseases, nutritional disorders and obesity. The Small Clinical Research Grants Program is designed to support short-term clinical studies and help stimulate the translation of promising and potentially relevant new developments from the laboratory into the clinical setting. This PAR specifically encourages the submission of applications for pilot studies relating to gastrointestinal, pancreatic and liver diseases and nutritional disorders including obesity. They should focus on research that is particularly innovative and/or potentially of high impact. High impact research involves feasibility studies in which the technological, methodological, or theoretical approach to a problem lacks an historical precedent or sufficient preliminary data, but whose successful outcome would have a major effect on a scientific area.The small grants may be used as planning grants for full-scale multi-center clinical trials or for pilot studies that could lead to full-scale multi-center clinical trials designed to provide evidence for or against changes in the current standard of care. Such trials may use pharmacological, dietary, surgical, endoscopic, physical activity, or behavioral interventions aimed at disease therapy or prevention. Pilot epidemiological studies are encouraged that could lead to more extended research that would provide evidence for or against changes in health policy, especially as related to disease prevention. It is expected that these small clinical grants will serve as a basis for planning future multi-center research project grant applications (R01) or cooperative agreement (U01) awards. The major changes in this PAR are a refocus on different priority areas and an added stress placed upon innovative approaches to translate new findings from basic research into practical means of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of digestive and nutritional diseases (bench-to-bedside research).
Applicants Eligible for this Grant
Native American tribal organizations (other than Federally recognized tribal governments) City or township governments Independent school districts Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education Public and State controlled institutions of higher education Private institutions of higher education Others (see text field entitled "Additional Information on Eligibility" for clarification) Public housing authorities/Indian housing authorities For profit organizations other than small businesses County governments Small businesses State governments Special district governments Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized)
Additional Information on Eligibility
New and experienced investigators in relevant fields and disciplines may apply for these small grants. New investigators are eligible, but they must be independent of a mentor and have strong institutional support. NIDDK K08 and K23 recipients, who are eligible for R03 grants, may consider applying for this R03 grant or for the R03 program for NIDDK K08/K23 recipients (PAR-04-044). Applicants from institutions that have a General Clinical Research Center (GCRC) funded by the National Center for Research Resources may wish to identify the GCRC as a resource for conducting the proposed research. If so, a letter of agreement from either the GCRC program director or principal investigator should be included with the application. Applicants are encouraged to collaborate with the investigators in the Silvio O. Conte Digestive Diseases Centers, Clinical Nutrition Research Centers, and Obesity/Nutrition Research Centers for consultation in experimental design, intervention, and methodology, as well as usage of core facilities appropriate for carrying out their projects. Information describing the centers and their cores can be requested from the person listed in INQUIRIES. Applications from Veterans Administration (VA) Medical Centers and collaborations with VA Medical Centers are encouraged. Several digestive and nutritional conditions and diseases are particularly common among Veteran patient populations and account for considerable morbidity and mortality in Veterans. Conditions particularly common include chronic hepatitis C, hepatocellular carcinoma, portal hypertension and cirrhosis. VA Medical Centers often provide the ideal milieu for clinical investigation of therapies that might benefit Veteran populations. The advanced medical information systems developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the ability to follow and maintain patient contact over many years make the VA Medical Centers particularly well adapted to clinical and epidemiological research in digestive diseases and nutritional disorders.
