Pilot Intervention and Services Research Grants (R34)
Grant Amount: Unspecified.
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research on (1) the development and/or pilot testing of novel or adapted interventions, (2) the adaptation and/or pilot testing of interventions with demonstrated efficacy for use in broader scale effectiveness trials, or (3) innovative services research directions that require preliminary testing or development, as detailed in the sub-headed sections that follow. The R34 award mechanism provides resources for evaluating the feasibility, tolerability, acceptability, and safety of novel approaches to improving mental health and modifying health risk behavior, and for obtaining the preliminary data needed as a pre-requisite to a larger-scale intervention (efficacy or effectiveness) or services study.
For the purpose of intervention pilot research, "intervention" is broadly defined to include psychosocial, pharmacologic, somatic or combination approaches to prevent the onset of disorder; efforts to treat disorder in the acute and later phases, such as continuation and maintenance; efforts to prevent relapse, side effects, or co-morbid symptoms and disorders; and rehabilitative efforts to reduce residual symptoms and/or enhance functioning. This mechanism is also intended to support innovative pilot services research to identify mutable factors that impact access, utilization, quality, and outcomes of mental health services and to inform or pilot test patient-, provider-, organizational-, or policy- level services interventions to improve care quality, coordination, or delivery.
NIMH intervention and services research is aimed at preventing or ameliorating mental disorders, emotional or behavioral problems, the co-occurrence of mental, physical and substance abuse problems, HIV infections, and the functional consequences of these problems across the life span. Across all mental health intervention/services research areas, intervention and services research that addresses research objectives outlined in the NIMH Strategic Plan are encouraged. Additional priorities for mental health research that is specifically focused on intervention research are detailed in the NAMHC Workgroup Report "From Discovery to Cure: Accelerating the Development of New and Personalized Interventions for Mental Illnesses." Priorities for services research are addressed in the NAMHC Workgroup Report “The Road Ahead: Partnerships to Transform Services."
NIAAA prevention, treatment, and services research is aimed at preventing or ameliorating alcohol use disorders, related emotional or behavioral problems, and the co-occurrence of other mental, physical, and substance abuse problems, HIV/AIDS, and the functional consequences of these problems across the life span.
