SAEMF Emerging Infectious Disease and Preparedness Grant

Society for Academic Emergency Medicine Foundation (SAEM Foundation)
Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM)

The purpose of this award is to support emergency care research related to emerging infectious disease (e.g. influenza, COVID-19, or other infections–this award is not limited to specific conditions). This award seeks to support an ambitious program of acute care science in emerging infectious disease that may include diagnostics, patient and provider safety, intervention/therapeutics, disaster preparedness, or other relevant topic areas. Projects leveraging innovative methodological designs, such as implementation trials, computational methods and data science are encouraged. While the focus is on self-limited research projects that are impactful in the current or future practice of emergency medicine and can be completed in a one-year time frame, the funds apportioned for this award are provided with the hope for investigators to propose an ambitious program of research that can lead to a sustained program of externally supported funded research. The goals of the grant align with mission of the SAEMF to improve emergency patient care through supporting the development of innovative researchers, expert educators and future academic emergency medicine leaders.

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Complement in Basic Immunology (CIBI)

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

The mechanisms by which complement components, receptors and pathways contribute to protective immune responses or pathogenesis remain to be fully elucidated. A better understanding of complement mechanism of action is critical for harnessing its positive effects in the development of adjuvants and vaccines, and for targeting it with therapeutics to reign in dysregulated complement responses.
Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Studies of the role of complement during adaptive or innate immune cell activation, differentiation, function, homeostasis, and memory;
• Mechanisms regulating the crosstalk of complement with other innate receptor systems;
• The potential of targeting complement components in adjuvant development;
• The role of complement components in immune pathogenesis of infection; and/or
• Development of animal models or cell- or tissue-specific in vitro and in vivo systems for studying the roles of complement in regulating immune responses.

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Aging-Relevant Behavioral and Social Research on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

NIA is issuing this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) to highlight the continuing need for behavioral, psychological, social, and economic research on SARS-CoV-2 and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). There is a need for ongoing research on the longer-term effects of COVID-19 on the health and well-being of those infected, those caring for the sick, and many others whose lives were disrupted by the pandemic and its associated mitigation and prevention strategies. Beyond effects on individuals, this pandemic has brought about unprecedented social and economic disruption that is expected to have long-term and profound effects on the health of the population. These effects will likely be particularly acute for NIH-designated health disparity populations, and other COVID-19 vulnerable groups including older adults, who have experienced higher rates of COVID-19 infection, who in some cases rely on the efforts of paid and unpaid care partners, and who may have additional barriers to accessing the medical system itself. Further, middle-aged and older frontline healthcare and essential workers and their families face unique risks of exposure to both infection and other health-related outcomes by virtue of their employment.

Notice of Special Interest: Emerging Viral Infections and their Impact on the Male and Female Reproductive Tract

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
The purpose of this Notice is to invite applications proposing cutting-edge research on emerging viral infections that are thought to primarily impact non-reproductive sites, at least at initial presentation, but may also affect the male and/or female reproductive tract. The recent global outbreak of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, is not an anomaly and will most likely not be the last virus occurrence. Today, infectious diseases are emerging and reemerging more quickly than ever before. In the last four-five years alone, two viral infections, one caused by the Zika virus (ZIKV) and the other caused by a SARS-CoV-2 (Covid19), have spread world-wide, resulting in death, severe disease with yet, unknown, long-term morbidities., or severe birth defects to the new-born. Both ZIKV and SARS-CoV-2 infections may affect male and/or female reproductive systems in addition to other non-reproductive sites. Therefore, it becomes essential to investigate possible effects of emerging viruses on reproductive tissues and cells to better understand potential impacts on fertility that may be sex specific.

Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, the sharp rise and potentially long duration of unemployment raises concerns about the development and worsening of mental health symptoms and disorders, drug use behaviors, and suicide risk and necessitates further research to confirm the efficacy or demonstrate effectiveness of strategies in this area.

Home-Based Child Care Emergency Fund

As our nation faces the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of home-based child care has never been more evident and these caregivers and providers have never been more indispensable.
