NIH Notice of Special Interest (NOSI):

Administrative Supplements for Research on Women’s Health in the IDeA States
The Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), along with the other participating NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices (ICOs) announce the availability of administrative supplements to IDeA awards to expand research and research capacity in the IDeA states to address important issues of women’s health across the lifespan. The proposed research must be within the scope of the parent grant and must address at least one of the strategic goals of the 2019-2023 Trans-NIH Strategic Plan for Women’s Health Research “Advancing Science for the Health of Women.”

Residents in IDeA states, especially those living in rural areas, often have less access to health care and suffer from poorer health outcomes, including health outcomes for women and children, than the average American. For example, several IDeA states are among the states with the highest maternal and infant mortality rates. These administrative supplements aim to increase research specifically directed at women’s health and health disparities and to expand the capacity of IDeA states to conduct women’s health research. Only one supplement request per COBRE, INBRE, or IDeA-CTR award will be accepted for each NOSI due date.Application due October 17, 2022 at 5 PM location time of applicant.Contact VBRN if you are interested in applying for this supplement.
