The Glenn Foundation for Medical Research, in partnership with the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR), created the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research Postdoctoral Fellowships in Aging Research to encourage and further the careers of postdoctoral fellows, who are conducting research in the basic biology of aging, as well as translating advances in basic research from the laboratory to the clinic. The award is intended to provide significant research and training support to permit these postdoctoral fellows to become established in the field of aging.

The National Collaborative on Gun Violence Research has issued a new request for proposals (RFP) for rigorous research that will produce evidence to support development of fair and effective gun policies.
Through this RFP it is Pfizer’s intent to support patient education programs designed to increase the understanding and familiarity with COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination among the general population. Of particular interest are educational programs that focus on reaching the medically underserved and other under-immunized populations including those in both rural and urban settings.

To that end, HABRI works to establish the vital role of companion animals in the health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund identified Innovation in Regulatory Science as an important, underfunded area. This initiative is designed to provide financial support to stimulate research efforts in this area. The program's focus is on providing support for academic researchers developing new methodologies or innovative approaches in regulatory science that will ultimately inform the regulatory decisions FDA and others make.
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation—Equity-Focused Policy Research: Building Cross-Cutting Evidence on Supports for Families with Young Children
The Equity-Focused Policy Research (EFPR) grant program seeks to fund a body of research that illuminates strategies and policies that enhance families’ equitable access to key resources for supporting their children’s healthy development.
There is an urgent need to better understand the pathobiology and both long term and immediate clinical implications of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) viral infection that leads to the morbidity and mortality seen with COVID-19, as well as increase knowledge about the potential emerging threat of other novel respiratory viruses. The American Lung Association is looking for proposals to advance research against emerging respiratory pathogens like SARS-CoV-2. All research must directly be related to COVID-19 or other viral respiratory threats that may arise in the future.
The COVID-19 pandemic has functioned as both an acute stressor on abortion services and as a critical catalyst for innovations in medication abortion service delivery. Changes in clinical protocols and workflows have been made out of necessity in response to patient needs, workforce safety, and population health. At the same time, such changes have presented unexpected opportunities to test more streamlined and patient-centered service delivery models. These changes include reducing in-person clinical visits and shifts in screening, dispensing, and follow-up norms.
The APF Visionary Grants seek to seed innovation through supporting research, education and intervention projects and programs that use psychology to solve social problems in the following priority
