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.
The goals of the EMF Pilot Project Grant are to 1) promote research within the specialty of emergency medicine by providing funding for a “starter” or “pilot project” that will produce findings that ultimately lead to a larger project (e.g., K or R grant) and 2) advance emergency medical care. The research may be in the basic sciences or any other emergency medicine-related filed and have the potential to have a meaningful impact on patient care and/or future research.
Each year, the society issues call for proposals encouraging new investigators to apply for seed and start-up funding for promising shoulder and elbow research projects. Grants of up to $20,000, for work to be performed over 12-24 months, are considered. Only orthopaedic surgeons acting as principal investigators are eligible to apply. All applications are reviewed and graded by the ASES Research Committee.
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.
Danone North America (“Danone”), will award $25,000 to two graduate students interested in exploring the gut microbiome, probiotics and yogurt to better understand how they help support and maintain human health and wellness.

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.
Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) awards grants once a year for the project period of October 1 – September 30. HHF Emerging Research Grants are intended primarily for promising researchers who are in the early stages of their careers and focusing on hearing loss, hearing restoration and hearing and balance related conditions. Senior investigators are also eligible for grants in specific hearing and balance topics.
The PSR portfolio supports studies that develop and disseminate sound data that inform best practices and produce better outcomes and improve quality of life for people living with spinal cord injury.
