3. National Institutes of Health: Research on the Health of LGBTI Populations (PA-12-111)

This FOA highlights a particular community: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and related populations (designated here as LGBTI populations). Basic, social, behavioral, clinical, and services research relevant to the missions of the sponsoring institutes and centers may be proposed. Details about applying can be found here.

4. National Institutes of Health: Research on the Health of LGBTI Populations (PA-12-112)

This FOA calls for research that describes the biological, clinical, behavioral, and social processes that affect the health and development among LGBTI populations and among their families, and that leads to the development of effective supportive, preventive and treatment interventions and health service delivery methods that will enhance the health and development of these populations. Research conducted in response to this FOA must focus on clearly defined health outcomes, rather than on general measures of “well-being” or “adjustment.” This FOA encourages researchers to investigate new research questions related to the health and development of LGBTI individuals and their families and to develop and/or apply innovative methodologies to improve understanding of mechanisms affecting the health and development of these populations. Details about applying can be found here.

5. National Institutes of Health: Technology-Based Interventions to Promote Engagement in Care and Treatment Adherence for Substance Abusing Populations with HIV (PA-12-117)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications to test the utility and implementation of technological tools, including mobile devices, to promote engagement in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) care among substance abusing populations with HIV. Research projects may focus on (a) the use of technology to directly improve patient-level outcomes (i.e., adherence); (b) the capacity of HIV treatment providers and related service delivery organizations to adopt and integrate such technologies to promote HIV treatment outcomes; or (c) the use of technology to improve the organization and delivery of HIV treatment and services. Details about applying can be found here.
