UC Davis and Betty Irene Moore Foundation: Fellowships for Nurse Leaders and Innovators

Grant Amount: $450,000 over three years + $50,000 to offset institution costs.
Deadline: February 28, 2020
Category: Health Sciences,
Additional Information
+

Based at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at the University of California, Davis, the Betty Irene Moore Fellowships for Nurse Leaders and Innovators program is a national initiative to develop the next generation of nurse leaders and innovators. The fellowship program recognizes and advances early-career nursing scholars and innovators with excellent potential to accelerate leadership in nursing-science research, practice, education, policy, and entrepreneurship and position nurse-scholars to be full partners in improving healthcare delivery.

Funded by a five-year, $37.5 million award from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the three-year fellowship engages promising nurse-scholars in a journey of leadership development and mentorship as they complete an innovative project or study. Each year, approximately ten fellows will be selected to receive $450,000 over three years to support their engagement, while their home institution receives $50,000 to offset costs.

During the program, nurse leader fellows build skill and confidence in leading change; influencing others to make system changes that improve health and healthcare quality; building their professional networks; communicating effectively to diverse audiences; designing and executing high-value programs; and bringing new innovations to practice and policy.

Applications are now being accepted for the inaugural 2020 cohort of approximately ten nurse fellows from eligible institutions. Applications and all required materials must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. (PST) February 28 for full consideration. Applications received after the deadline will be considered on a space-available basis.

Simons Foundation for Autism Research Initiative: Collaborative Awards for Sex Differences in Autism Research

Grant Amount: Up to $8 Million, including 20% indirect costs, over an initial period of four years, with a possible three-year extension
Deadline: Letter of Intent Due April 21, 2020
Category: Health Sciences,
Additional Information
+

The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) is pleased to announce its 2020 SFARI Collaboration on Sex Differences in Autism request for applications.

There is growing recognition that synergistic efforts across scientific disciplines will contribute to addressing the most critical questions in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) research and accelerating progress on the development of therapeutics. Collaborations are a new SFARI funding mechanism that will provide substantive and stable funding support to multidisciplinary teams of investigators tackling critical issues in the field of ASD research. A proposal must address how the impact of a given collaboration will be greater than the sum of what would be possible through awards to individual laboratories.

Collaborations will be led by a director who oversees interdisciplinary, synergistic research efforts across multiple laboratories. Investigative groups within a collaboration will focus on the same conceptually unified topic but will incorporate different scientific disciplines and multiple levels of analysis, and will include a robust data-sharing infrastructure.

For the first collaboration RFA, SFARI is soliciting applications to investigate sex differences in autism. They welcome proposals that will use an array of modern technologies to examine sex differences in brain function, within and across species, including humans, to identify key differences in gene, cell and circuit function that account for the observed differential sensitivities of the two sexes to ASD. A successful collaboration must enhance our understanding of the biological bases for sex-specific differences in ASD and set the stage for development of novel interventions.

Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research: BEAT-PD (Biomarker and Endpoint Assessment to Track Parkinson’s Disease) DREAM Challenge

Grant Amount: $25,000
Deadline: April 22, 2020
Category: Health Sciences,
Additional Information
+

BEAT-PD is a data challenge designed to benchmark new methods to predict Parkinson’s disease progression. Specifically, its objective is to determine whether disease severity and progression can be assessed from passive sensor data collected during daily life.

Teams participating in the Challenge will have access to raw sensor (accelerometer and gyroscope) time-series data that can be used to predict individual medication state and symptom severity. Using the sensor data, participants will be asked to tackle specific subchallenges. Teams can submit methods to predict (1) on/off medication status, (2) dyskinesia severity, and/or (3) tremor severity. Training/test set partitioning has been done within study subject to facilitate building of personalized predictive models. Due to the wide range in number of observations by subject, accuracy will be assessed within study subject. The subject-specific accuracy will then be weighted across subjects to arrive at a final score. The best solution will minimize the Final Score.

Demonstrating the Power of Evidence-Based Programs on Major U.S. Social Problems

Grant Amount: $1M to $5M
Deadline: Continuous
Category: Social Science, Social Work,
Additional Information
+

A central goal of U.S. evidence-based policy reform is to focus government and philanthropic funding on social programs and practices (“interventions”) that have credible evidence of meaningful positive effects on people’s lives. The imperative for doing so is clear: Most social interventions are unfortunately found not to produce the hoped-for effects when rigorously evaluated – a pattern that occurs not just in social spending but in other fields, such as medicine and business. Thus, without a strong focus on evidence-based interventions, it is hard to see how social spending can successfully address poverty, educational failure, violence, drug abuse, and other critical U.S. problems.

The Laura and John Arnold Foundation’s (LJAF) Moving the Needle initiative seeks to spur expanded implementation of such interventions in order to make significant headway against U.S. social problems. Specifically, the initiative is designed to encourage state or local jurisdictions, or other entities, to:
1. Adopt social interventions shown in well-conducted randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to produce large, sustained effects on important life outcomes;
2. Implement these interventions on a sizable scale with close adherence to their key features; and
3. Determine, through a replication RCT, whether the large effects found in prior research are successfully reproduced so as to move the needle on important social problems.
