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)

National Institutes of Health (NIH)
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.

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to provide an opportunity for funded researchers in these various fields to pursue supplemental funding to conduct research addressing these emerging and other existing COVID-related issues among pregnant and lactating people, infants, children and adolescents, and individuals with physical and/or intellectual disabilities. The goal of this NOSI is to not replace or to compete with the various COVID-related funding opportunities currently available. Instead, the purpose is to complement them by offering a funding opportunity for currently funded investigators to address key issues not currently covered by available COVID-related funding announcements among these populations. It is hoped that the use of administrative supplements will foster research in these key areas in the most timely manner. Research projects addressing issues that are the focus of currently available or future COVID funding opportunity announcements will be encouraged to submit to those announcements. Also, applicants responding to this NOSI are strongly encouraged to describe plans for the rapid sharing of data and results as well as innovative data analytics approaches. The sharing of COVID-related data and resources and the effective communication of results are a high priority of the NIH.
