Funding Opportunity for Time-Sensitive Childhood Obesity Research
The NIH-funded Johns Hopkins Global Center on Childhood Obesity (JHGCCO) is seeking applications for research that focuses on time-sensitive changes in environments or policies that may reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity. Projects should take a systems perspective and have the potential to inform the development or confirmation of community- or population-based interventions. We invite applications from investigators at all career levels in the United States and globally.
This solicitation is for research that requires short-cycle funding decisions (“rapid response” studies). Awards will be announced approximately 3 months from the Research Funding Announcement (RFA) release date. Eligible studies must be associated with actual policies or processes that are pending in real world settings (e.g., natural experiments), requiring “time-sensitive” data collection that would not be possible if the funding decision were made on a regular 9-month NIH review cycle. The JHGCCO RFAs are re-issued every 6 months, in January and July. Click here to visit the Center website and view the full RFA.
