SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor offers support for research on the decision-making processes made by persons faced with life-threatening illness. These illnesses are ones that almost always lead to death in a fairly short period of time if left untreated, but may be chronic - or even cured - if dealt with early in the disease process. An example of a life-threatening illness that may be chronic for some years would be HIV infection when treated. An example of a life-threatening illness that may be cured in its early stages would be breast cancer. Decision-making can occur from the point of adopting preventive behaviors through the end of life. Examples of such decisions could include participating in an HIV vaccine clinical trial, testing for genetic disorder, choosing a treatment intervention vs. watchful waiting (as in early stage prostate cancer), choosing a treatment intervention among several options, joining a therapeutic clinical trial, or making end-of-life care decisions. This PA will use the NIH R21 award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsors offer support for research aimed at increasing the parenting skills and capacities of parents and caregivers to improve the health outcomes of their young and adolescent children. Interventions targeting two or more risk factors that indicate ineffective parenting practices (e.g., lack of appropriate parental monitoring, supervision, and communication, high family conflict and disorganization, parental stress and depression, lack of parent-child bonding and negative discipline methods) that simultaneously focus on multiple high-risk adolescent health behaviors (e.g., unhealthy dietary behaviors, inadequate physical activity, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, sexual behaviors, and unintentional (e.g., accidents) and intentional behaviors (e.g., firearm related injuries), are fundamental to this initiative. Interventions that target the reduction of a broad range of family risk factors and simultaneously build upon protective factors are highly encouraged. Parents and similarly situated caregivers of children ten-to-eighteen years of age are the targets of this initiative. This PA will use the NIH R21 award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsors offer support for research aimed at increasing the parenting skills and capacities of parents and caregivers to improve the health outcomes of their young and adolescent children. Interventions targeting two or more risk factors that indicate ineffective parenting practices (e.g., lack of appropriate parental monitoring, supervision, and communication, high family conflict and disorganization, parental stress and depression, lack of parent-child bonding and negative discipline methods) that simultaneously focus on multiple high-risk adolescent health behaviors (e.g., unhealthy dietary behaviors, inadequate physical activity, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, sexual behaviors, and unintentional (e.g., accidents) and intentional behaviors (e.g., firearm related injuries), are fundamental to this initiative. Interventions that target the reduction of a broad range of family risk factors and simultaneously build upon protective factors are highly encouraged. Parents and similarly situated caregivers of children ten-to-eighteen years of age are the targets of this initiative. This PA will use the NIH R01 award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor offers support for research on the decision-making processes made by persons faced with life-threatening illness. These illnesses are ones that almost always lead to death in a fairly short period of time if left untreated, but may be chronic - or even cured - if dealt with early in the disease process. An example of a life-threatening illness that may be chronic for some years would be HIV infection when treated. An example of a life-threatening illness that may be cured in its early stages would be breast cancer. Decision-making can occur from the point of adopting preventive behaviors through the end of life. Examples of such decisions could include participating in an HIV vaccine clinical trial, testing for genetic disorder, choosing a treatment intervention vs. watchful waiting (as in early stage prostate cancer), choosing a treatment intervention among several options, joining a therapeutic clinical trial, or making end-of-life care decisions. This PA will use the NIH R01 award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor provides support for applications to study the development of the frontal and prefrontal cortices, together with the subcortical areas of the limbic system, that play significant roles in mediating emotional and motivated behavior. This initiative is designed to support basic neuroscience research into the fundamental mechanisms of development of the frontal and prefrontal cortices, as well as the midbrain and basal forebrain structures that mediate a number of functions related to drug abuse and psychiatric disorders including: the euphoric properties of drugs, actions of psychotherapeutic agents, and cognitive and emotional functions. A major goal of this initiative is to understand how exposure to drugs of abuse affects the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying nervous system development of circuits implicated in drug reward and addiction. An additional goal is to understand how alterations in the normal developmental trajectory of cortical and limbic areas might underlie the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders with putative developmental etiologies. This program will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism.

A biomarker is an indicator of a disease process, and could replace hard clinical end points as a measure of the effect of new therapies. Responsive studies will validate candidate biomarkers in well-defined patient populations, provide new technologies to monitor biomarkers or establish reliable assays for validated markers. This PA will use the NIH R01 award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor offers support for research on the decision-making processes made by persons faced with life-threatening illness. These illnesses are ones that almost always lead to death in a fairly short period of time if left untreated, but may be chronic - or even cured - if dealt with early in the disease process. An example of a life-threatening illness that may be chronic for some years would be HIV infection when treated. An example of a life-threatening illness that may be cured in its early stages would be breast cancer. Decision-making can occur from the point of adopting preventive behaviors through the end of life. Examples of such decisions could include participating in an HIV vaccine clinical trial, testing for genetic disorder, choosing a treatment intervention vs. watchful waiting (as in early stage prostate cancer), choosing a treatment intervention among several options, joining a therapeutic clinical trial, or making end-of-life care decisions. This PA will use the NIH R21 award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor offers support for research on the decision-making processes made by persons faced with life-threatening illness. These illnesses are ones that almost always lead to death in a fairly short period of time if left untreated, but may be chronic - or even cured - if dealt with early in the disease process. An example of a life-threatening illness that may be chronic for some years would be HIV infection when treated. An example of a life-threatening illness that may be cured in its early stages would be breast cancer. Decision-making can occur from the point of adopting preventive behaviors through the end of life. Examples of such decisions could include participating in an HIV vaccine clinical trial, testing for genetic disorder, choosing a treatment intervention vs. watchful waiting (as in early stage prostate cancer), choosing a treatment intervention among several options, joining a therapeutic clinical trial, or making end-of-life care decisions. This PA will use the NIH R01 award mechanism.
