Understanding Mechanisms of Health Risk Behavior Change in Children and Adolescents (R21): - This program announcement invites research grant applications that will enhance our understanding of the factors and mechanisms that determine changes in health risk behaviors during childhood and adolescence. Interdisciplinary research is sought to explore the biological, genetic, physiological, psychological, and social/environmental factors and mechanisms that influence health risk behavior change in children and adolescents.-The concept of health risk behavior change is used in this program announcement to encompass the evolution of specific health impairing behaviors. Of particular interest are factors and processes that influence the initiation, continuation, and/or cessation of one or more of the following health risk behaviors: (1) substance abuse, (2) inadequate exercise and poor dietary practices as they relate to being overweight or obese, and (3) intentional and unintentional injuries. The terms "health risk behaviors" and "risky behaviors" are used interchangeably in this FOA.-The goal of this FOA is to promote optimal physical and mental health in children and adolescents. This may be accomplished by research to enhance our understanding of the origin, evolution, and termination of health risk behaviors and, ultimately, by the development of effective prevention and intervention strategies designed to maintain healthy behaviors and prevent health risk behaviors.-There is no set aside amount of money for this funding opportunity announcement. Funding decisions will be made by the NICHD based on the NICHD pay line and the availability of funds. When funds are available, applications will be funded if their percentile scores are within the NICHD pay line. Applications with scores within the pay line are typically rated by reviewers as outstanding or excellent. There is no limit on the number of awards anticipated.-This funding opportunity will utilize the NIH Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) award mechanism, but will run in parallel with a program announcement of identical scientific scope (PA-04-121) that will utilize the Traditional Research Project Grant (R01).-Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.-The total project period for an application submitted in response to this funding opportunity may not exceed two years. Direct costs are limited to $275,000 over an R21 two-year period, with no more than $200,000 in direct costs allowed in any single year.-Eligible organizations: For profit organizations; Non-profit organizations; Public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals and laboratories; Units of State government; Units of local government; Eligible institutions of the Federal government; Domestic institutions; Foreign institutions; Faith-based or community-based organizations; Units of State Tribal government; and Units of Local Tribal government. -Eligible Project Directors/Principal Investigators (PD/PIs): Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support.-Applicants may submit more than one application, provided each application is scientifically distinct.
