The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), in collaboration with participating NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices, recently announced two Notices of Funding Opportunities (NOFOs) related to investigator-initiated research in genomics and health equity.
The purpose of this initiative is to support investigator-initiated research in genomics and health equity, with the ultimate goal of developing approaches, generating and disseminating data, and implementing metrics or interventions that will advance the equitable use of genomics to improve health in U.S. populations.
Awardees will conduct innovative and generalizable research in genomics and health equity spanning across genomic research areas and will incorporate a plan for enhancing diverse perspectives. Applications supporting New or Early Stage Investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups traditionally underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research workforce, as described in the NIH Notice of Interest in Diversity (NOT-OD-20-031), are encouraged.
Applications are due November 8, 2023.
