Call for Submissions: Lesbian Health Fund

ScanGrants - Cardiovascular -

Call for Submissions: Lesbian Health Fund

 The Lesbian Health Fund (LHF), a program of GLMA: Health Professionals Advancing LGBT Equality, is accepting proposals for research on lesbian health.  Applications are due October 15, 2014.

The mission of the Lesbian Health Fund is to improve the health of lesbians and other sexual minority women (SMW) and their families through research.

Research Areas

While many areas in the field of lesbian health need more attention, here are the areas which we believe are especially important for improving the health of lesbians, other sexual minority women, and their families.

Understanding social, family, and interpersonal influences as sources of stress or support

Eliminating inequalities in health care, including barriers to care, and improving quality of care and utilization rates

Development and testing of interventions to address mental and physical health needs of lesbians and other SMW, including but not limited to depression, identity related issues, eating disorders, substance abuse, obesity, cancer risks, cardiovascular disease and sexually transmitted infections

Sexual and reproductive health, including family & parenting issues

Methodology

LHF funded research, whether qualitative or quantitative, is well grounded with solid methodology, and is in dialogue with the existing body of literature in the field. However, there are particular challenges associated with conducting research in a small and often difficult to access population of lesbians and other sexual minority women. Going beyond the need to simply “fill in gaps in the literature” will require developing innovative research methodology.

Presentation & Publication

It is expected that the results from LHF funded studies will be published in peer-reviewed journals. LHF also requires a presentation of original research finding to be made at either the GLMA Annual Conference, or at the Women In Medicine Conference. Research budgets can include up to $750 to subsidize travel costs.

Future Research

LHF grants range from $500 - $10,000. Many applications are for small projects structured to provide pilot data for subsequent research. In order to leverage the impact of our investment, priority is given to the best proposals with the greatest likelihood of securing future funding from other sources.

Proposals for the fall grant cycle are due by October 15th.

GLMA and LHF Board Members or paid consultants are ineligible to submit grants.

Application Deadline:  July 24, 2014

Award Activation:  January 1, 2015

Applications must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. CDT on the deadline date.  The system will shut down at 5:00 p.m. CDT.  Early submission is encouraged.  Your institutional Grants Officer (GO) has the final responsibility of submitting your completed application to the American Heart Association.  It is important that you check with your GO for his/her internal deadline.

Objective

To support highly innovative, high-risk, high-reward research that could ultimately lead to critical discoveries or major advancements that will accelerate the field of cardiovascular and stroke research.

Research deemed innovative may introduce a new paradigm, challenge current paradigms, look at existing problems from new perspectives, or exhibit other uniquely creative qualities.  The Innovative Research Grant (IRG) promotes new ideas; therefore, proposals need not include preliminary data.  However, a solid rationale for the work must be provided.  Proposed work should not be the next logical step of previous work, but should have a high probability of revealing new avenues of investigation, if successful.  This program aims to provide pilot or seed funding that should lead to successful competition for additional funding beyond the pilot period.

The principal investigator (PI) is responsible for clearly and explicitly articulating the project's innovation and the potential impact on cardiovascular and stroke research.

Science Focus

Research broadly related to cardiovascular function and disease and stroke, or to related clinical, basic science, bioengineering or biotechnology, and public health problems, including multidisciplinary efforts.

Disciplines

Proposals are encouraged from all basic, behavioral, epidemiological, and community and clinical investigations that bear on cardiovascular and stroke problems.

Target Audience

At the time of application, the applicant must:

• Hold an M.D., Ph.D., D.O. or equivalent doctoral degree.
 
Eligibility for the Innovative Research Grant is not restricted based upon experience level or seniority. Seniority will not be used as a criterion in evaluating an application's merit.

At the time of award activation, must:

• Have a faculty (or faculty equivalent) appointment.  This award is not intended for postdoctoral fellows or others in research training positions.

Citizenship

At time of application, must have one of the following designations:

• U.S. citizen

• Permanent resident

• Pending permanent resident. Applicants must have applied for permanent residency and have filed form I-485 with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and have received authorization to legally remain in the United States (having filed an Application for Employment Form I-765).

• E3 - specialty occupation worker

• H-1B Visa - temporary worker in a specialty occupation

• J-1 Visa-exchange visitor.  Note:  You must have an H-1B or equivalent by the award activation date.  If the H-1B or equivalent is not received by the award activation date, the award must be relinquished.

• O-1 Visa - temporary worker with extraordinary abilities in the sciences

• TN Visa - NAFTA professional

• G-4 Visa - family member of employee of international organizations and NATO

Awardee must meet American Heart Association citizenship criteria throughout the duration of the award.

Location of Work

National programs are open to all affiliates.

American Heart Association research awards are limited to non-profit institutions, including medical, osteopathic and dental schools, veterinary schools, schools of public health, pharmacy schools, nursing schools, universities and colleges, public and voluntary hospitals and other non-profit institutions that can demonstrate the ability to conduct the proposed research.

Applications will not be accepted for work with funding to be administered through any federal institution or work to be performed by a federal employee, except for Veterans Administration employees.

Applicants are not required to reside in the United States for any period before applying for American Heart Association funding.

Exception: An investigator may be allowed to request approval to conduct work outside the United States temporarily.

Call for Early Career Investigator Travel Fellowship Applications: Companion Diagnostics: From Biomarker Identification to Market Entry

April 28 - 29, 2014 The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented by The New York Academy of Sciences

The recent growth in complex biological data has enabled a major paradigm shift in healthcare away from "one-size-fits-all" approaches towards customized, patient-tailored therapies. Biomarker-based companion diagnostics (CDx), designed to identify responsive patient sub-populations or those likely to experience adverse drug effects, lie at the heart of this personalized, precision medicine movement.

This 2-day conference will provide a neutral forum for international scientists and clinicians from academia, industry, and government — as well as healthcare policy makers, regulatory experts, insurance sector representatives, and other stakeholders — to discuss research, financial, and regulatory strategies that will facilitate CDx development and integration into clinical care. Presentations will illustrate successes and failures based on case studies; evaluate emerging applications of technologies such as epigenetics, bioinformatics, and nanotechnology; analyze diverse therapeutic target areas beyond cancer including inflammatory, infectious, cardiovascular, metabolic, and neurodegenerative diseases; recognize regulatory hurdles; and formulate solutions to better improve public health with CDx and personalized medicine.

The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, March 14, 2014.

Applications are invited from qualified early career investigators. For detailed information on eligibility and application instructions, please send an email to CDx2014@nyas.org with the words "Fellowship Information" in the subject line. There is no need to type a message; instructions will be forwarded automatically. Please call 212.298.8618 with any questions.
