Funding Opportunity RFA-FD-15-019 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications from institutions/ organizations for inclusion into FDA's Food Emergency Response Network (FERN) Cooperative Agreement Program for Microbiological, Chemical, and/or Radiological laboratories. The FERN cooperative agreements are intended to target state, local, and tribal FERN laboratories to provide increased analytical capacity and expertise (including method development and validation) in the event of food outbreaks or other large-scale food emergency events requiring surge capacity testing of implicated food samples.These samples could involve foods and/or environmental samples related to foods, and will be collected by Federal, State, or local agencies. Selected labs with potential sample collection capabilities may be tasked with sample collection activities in support of this program. Numbers of samples and scheduling of samples will be determined by the FERN National Program Office (NPO) in coordination with grantees. Federal or State surveillance assignments will also be a source of samples for lab analysis. The FDA estimates that the analysis of up to 480 emergency response and surveillance samples per year may be needed.

Research Partnerships for Going to Scale with Mental Health Interventions in Low-and Middle-Income Countries (U19)
Funding Opportunity RFA-MH-16-350 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications to address implementation questions facing World Bank designated low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in their efforts to scale up sustainable, evidence-based mental health interventions and thereby eliminate the mental health care treatment gap for children, women, and men. The mental health treatment gap refers to the proportion of persons who need, but do not receive care. Each awarded project is to conduct implementation research and research capacity-building activities in LMICs in any one of the following geographical regions: East Asia and the Pacific; Europe and Central Asia; Latin America and the Caribbean; Middle East and North Africa; South Asia; Sub-Saharan Africa. As a group, awardees will constitute a network for mental health implementation research in LMICs with capabilities for answering research questions about going to scale with mental health interventions, sustaining high-quality mental health care in resource-limited settings, and fostering evidence-based mental health policy and program development on an ongoing basis. This program is not intended to support research that can be conducted primarily in and/or by United States or other high income country institutions.

Undiagnosed Diseases Gene Function Research (R21)
Funding Opportunity RFA-RM-15-004 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. Diseases Network (UDN) building upon the NIH Intramural Research Programs Undiagnosed Diseases Program (NIH-UDP). Responsive applications will propose to investigate the underlying genetics, biochemistry and/or pathophysiology of newly diagnosed diseases in association with the respective gene variant(s) identified through the UDN. In recent years, gene function studies combined with genetic and genomic analyses and metabolic studies have greatly improved diagnoses of these very rare diseases and advanced scientific knowledge of the underlying pathogenesis. This initiative is funded through the NIH Common Fund, which supports cross-cutting programs that are expected to have exceptionally high impact.
