NIH Center for Accelerated Innovation at Cleveland Clinic (NCAI-CC)

The NIH Center for Accelerated Innovation at Cleveland Clinic (NCAI-CC) Announces the Request for Applications (RFA) for the third funding cycle.

Funding is available for promising emerging technologies directed towards diagnosis, treatment or management of cardiovascular, pulmonary, blood or sleep-related disorders. NCAI-CC is seeking projects such as therapeutics (e.g. drugs, biologics), preventatives, diagnostics, devices, tools, etc., in order to facilitate their translation to commercialized products that improve patient care and enhance health. The NCAI-CC will provide funding and project assistance to advance the development of high priority early-stage technologies within the mission areas of the NHLBI (cardiovascular, lung, blood and sleep disorders). Expert assistance will be provided in areas required for early technology development, including commercial opportunity assessment, intellectual property, clinical and regulatory, reimbursement, business, legal and project management.

Eligibility: Investigators from the Cleveland Clinic, Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University,Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and University of Cincinnati

Letter of Intent Deadline: February 10, 2015

CDC: Economic Studies of Immunization Policies and Practices

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-IP-15-001

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to obtain economic information about vaccines and immunization policies, programs, and practices using economic and decision analyses and other appropriate methods. The results of these economic studies will be used to help inform policy and the development of effective interventions. Three studies will be conducted, including an analysis of the financial, economic, and epidemiologic relationships between vaccine-preventable infectious diseases and chronic diseases in adult populations, and the opportunity costs for immunization of failure to prevent chronic diseases. Study 1 may include, but need not be limited to influenza and pneumococcal diseases and diabetes. Study 2 will focus on an estimation of the costs of norovirus disease. Study three will involve an analysis of issues related to provider reimbursement for adult vaccination services.

Application Deadline: March 3, 2015
