    NIH Biology of Bladder Cancer  This FOA encourages applications investigating the biology and underlying mechanisms of bladder cancer. While recent progress has been made in the molecular profiling of bladder cancers and identification of mutated genes, relatively little is known regarding the molecular mechanisms driving initiation, progression, and malignancy of bladder cancer. Furthermore, our understanding of biological processes of the normal bladder at the molecular, cell and organ levels is limited. Fundamental knowledge of how molecular and cellular functions of the bladder are altered in cancer will aid our understanding of bladder cancer biology and interventions. Applications that involve multidisciplinary teams and use clinical specimens or investigate both normal and cancer processes are encouraged.

    • R01  Deadline:  June 5
    • R21  Deadline:  June 16

    Varies

    NIH Mechanisms Underlying the Contribution of Sleep Disturbances to Pain  The purpose of this FOA is to encourage mechanistic research to investigate the impact of sleep disturbances on pain. The mechanisms and processes underlying the contribution of sleep and sleep disturbances to pain perception and the development and maintenance of chronic pain may be very broad. This FOA encourages interdisciplinary research collaborations by experts from multiple fields—neuroscientists, psychologists, endocrinologists, immunologists, geneticists, pharmacologists, chemists, physicists, behavioral scientists, clinicians, caregivers, and others in relevant fields of inquiry.

    • R01  Deadline: June 5
    • R21  Deadline: June 16

    Varies

    NIH Modulating Intestinal Microbiota to Enhance Protective Immune Responses against Cancer  The purpose of this FOA is to support research which can elucidate mechanism(s) of action by which gut microbes inhibit or enhance anti-tumor immune responses.  Thus, research projects should be focused on delineating how specific microbes or their metabolites target host immune responses to prevent colitis-associated or sporadic tumor formation.
