Notices of Special Interest (NOSIs)

Ongoing Fogarty and NIH Global Health Collaborations

Fogarty is participating in the following collaborations with NIH components, U.S. government partners, and others.

African Postdoctoral Training Initiative (APTI)

The African Academy of Sciences (AAS), NIH and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are partnering under the auspices of the Coalition of African Research and Innovation (CARI) to establish a post-doctoral training fellowship program, the African Postdoctoral Training Initiative (APTI).

Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences Opportunity Network (OppNet)

The NIH Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences Opportunity Network (OppNet) is a trans-NIH initiative to expand the agency's funding of basic behavioral and social sciences research. OppNet issues a variety of funding opportunities to solicit research applications examining basic mechanisms of behavioral maintenance.

Climate Change

Building on its decades of work to advance scientific knowledge about how climate change affects human health, in 2022 NIH announced it has established the $100 million Climate Change and Health (CCH) Initiative to significantly scale-up research and action in this critical area. Fogarty has joined with seven NIH institutes and centers (ICs) on the partnership, which is being led by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

Data Science: Harnessing Data Science for Health Discovery and Innovation in Africa (DS-I Africa)

The NIH Common Fund’s Harnessing Data Science for Health Discovery and Innovation in Africa (DS-I Africa) program will explore how advances in data science applied in the African context can spur new health discoveries and catalyze innovation. This program will leverage existing data and technologies to develop solutions to the continent’s most pressing clinical and public health problems through a robust ecosystem of new partners from academic, government and private sectors. A working group of NIH components is guiding the program, led by Fogarty, the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

Global Alliance of Chronic Diseases

NIH participates in the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD), a collection of publicly funded research agencies that supports innovative research collaborations to address the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases in vulnerable populations.

Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa)

The Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) Initiative is a partnership between NIH, the African Society of Human Genetics and Wellcome Trust to foster genomic and epidemiological research in African scientific institutions.

Implementation Science

The trans-NIH Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health program supports research to identify, develop, evaluate and refine effective and efficient methods, systems, infrastructures and strategies. Focusing on patient outcomes, supported programs will disseminate and implement research-tested health behavior change interventions, evidence-based prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment and management, quality of life improvement services, and data monitoring and surveillance reporting tools into public health and clinical practice settings.

Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Training (MHRT)

Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Training (MHRT) from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) supports research training activities in minority health and health disparities research for individuals from diverse backgrounds, including groups underrepresented in biomedical, behavioral, clinical and social sciences research, at domestic institutions and at specified LMIC locations. This program is intended to promote both domestic and international training opportunities in a diverse and inclusive environment for eligible undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate students, as well as for eligible residents, fellows and postdoctoral students.

Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER)

Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) is a competitive grants program that invites scientists in developing countries, partnered with U.S. Government-supported collaborators, to apply for funds to support research and capacity-building activities on topics with strong potential development impacts. The program is supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) with several U.S. Government-supported agencies, including NIH, and is implemented by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM).

Rare Diseases

The Rare Diseases Clinical Research Consortia (RDCRC) for the Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network is a cooperative agreement research program to facilitate clinical research in rare diseases. Learn more about rare diseases at NIH from the Office of Rare Diseases Research at the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).
