Department of Health and Human Services – Agency for Health Care Research and Quality – Large Health Services Research Demonstration and Dissemination Projects for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (CARB)(R18)

Proposal Due Date:                                               January 25, 2022

Expected Number of Awards:                          

Estimated Total Program Funding:                             

Award Ceiling:                                                                   

Award Floor:                                                          

Funding Opportunity Number:                              PA-22-048

 

Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications for grant funding to conduct Large Health Services Research Demonstration and Dissemination Projects (R18) focused on Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (CARB) in the following ways: by promoting appropriate antibiotic use, reducing the transmission of resistant bacteria, and preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in the first place.

 

AHRQ is interested in supporting AR research in all settings targeted in the CARB NAP and the HAI NAP, including acute care hospitals, long-term care, and ambulatory care settings, as well as transitions between care settings. AHRQ notes that methods of combating AR and conducting antibiotic stewardship are less-well-developed in long-term care and ambulatory settings than in the inpatient hospital setting.  Additional research in these areas is especially needed.  AHRQ aims to support research in all three settings.

 

It should be noted that AR blurs the distinction between community-acquired infections and HAIs since AR bacteria that emerge in the community tend to be transmitted in due time to healthcare settings. AR is not confined to specific healthcare settings. Factors that contribute to AR in one setting affect others as well, whether through inappropriate use of antibiotics across settings or transmission of resistant infections from one setting to another.

 

Consistent with AHRQ’s mission to improve the delivery of healthcare, AHRQ will fund grants that address AR, in the following areas of research interest:

 

Promoting appropriate antibiotic use.

Funding Opportunity from the National Science Foundation

National Science Foundation – Science and Technology Centers: Integrative Partnerships

Proposal Due Date:                                                           August 29, 2022

Expected Number of Awards:                                      

Estimated Total Program Funding:                              $30,000,000

Award Ceiling:                                                                    $6,000,000

Award Floor:                                                                       $1,500,000

Funding Opportunity Number:                                             22-521

 

Purpose: The Science and Technology Centers (STC): Integrative Partnerships program supports exceptionally innovative, complex research and education projects that require large-scale, long-term awards. STCs focus on creating new scientific paradigms, establishing entirely new scientific disciplines and developing transformative technologies which have the potential for broad scientific or societal impact. STCs conduct world-class research through partnerships among institutions of higher education, national laboratories, industrial organizations, other public or private entities, and via international collaborations, as appropriate. They provide a means to undertake potentially groundbreaking investigations at the interfaces of disciplines and/or highly innovative approaches within disciplines. STCs may involve any area of science and engineering that NSF supports. STC investments support the NSF vision of creating and exploiting new concepts in science and engineering and providing global leadership in research and education.

 

Centers provide a rich environment for encouraging future scientists, engineers, and educators to take risks in pursuing discoveries and new knowledge. STCs foster excellence in education by integrating education and research, and by creating bonds between learning and inquiry so that discovery and creativity fully support the learning process.

 

NSF expects STCs to both involve individuals who are members of groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering at all levels within the Center (faculty, staff, students, and postdoctoral researchers) as well as be a leader in broadening participation in STEM. Individuals who may be underrepresented in STEM include those who identify as women, persons with disabilities, Blacks and African Americans, Hispanics and Latinos, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Other Pacific Islanders. The terms for these racial and ethnic populations are derived from the US government’s guidance for federal statistics and administrative reporting (OMB Statistical Policy Directive No. 15, Race and Ethnic Standards for Federal Statistics and Administrative Reporting). Although these social identities are listed separately, they do not exist in isolation from each other and the intersection of one of more of these social identities may need to be considered when designing plans for diversity, equity, and inclusion within the STC Center. Centers may use either proven, or innovative mechanisms based on the relevant literature, to address issues such as recruitment, retention, success, and career progression of all individuals in the Center.
