Featured Grants Week of 1/16/19

Posted by on

Despite the lingering shut down, nearly 30 new grants posted last week. Most were from the National Institutes of Health and the Health Resources and Services Administration, which have not been impacted by the partial shutdown. At least one grant from an agency that isn't currently operating -- the Department of Agricultural -- did post last week, so it seems some funding opportunities are being pushed through. 

We've highlighted three grants, including one for summer education research experience for high school students and educators, below. View the entire list of opportunities by clicking here

National Institutes of Health
Grant Title: Virtual Reality Tools to Enhance Evidence-Based Treatment of Substance Abuse Disorders

This Funding Opportunity Announcement is intended to develop and evaluate Virtual Reality (VR) enhanced technologies that will support SUD treatment and recovery, provide treatment alternatives for chronic pain, or serve as next generation Clinical Research Tools which leverage data from the VR experience and identify digital markers that model SUD and comorbid mental illness disorders. The objective of Phase I (R43) is to establish the feasibility and/or validation of the device, and Phase 2 is designed to test the efficacy of the VR platform in a larger sample.
