School-Based Interventions to Prevent Obesity (R21): -This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages the formation of partnerships between academic institutions and school systems in order to develop and implement controlled, school-based intervention strategies designed to reduce the prevalence of obesity in childhood. This initiative also encourages evaluative comparisons of different intervention strategies, as well as the use of methods to detect synergistic interactions between different types of interventions. -This FOA will use the Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) award mechanism. The R21 is not renewable. -The R21 mechanism is intended to encourage new exploratory and developmental research projects and/or exploration of novel hypotheses and strategies. For example, such projects could assess the feasibility of a novel area of investigation or a new experimental system.
