Social Network Analysis & Health Mini Series
The Social Network Analysis and Health Mini-Series is a forum to enhance understanding of social network theory and methods and their application within the field of health research. Social network analysis is increasingly used by scientists across the prevention-to-treatment continuum to understand relational dynamics of complex health issues. The goals of the mini-series are to introduce this method through case examples that include applications related to a range of chronic and infectious diseases among adult and youth populations.

Doris Duke Charitable Foundation – Building Demand for the Arts
The Doris Duke Building Demand for the Arts grants support organizations and artists in joint efforts to develop audience demand for jazz, theatre and/or contemporary dance. While many programs focus on the supply side of the supply/demand equation, this program is predicated on the belief that artists and organizations can work together in imaginative ways to create and pilot methods of reaching the public and developing interest in and access to the performing arts. This program encourages creative thinking about how to increase this demand and to engage communities in new ways—which may include but are not necessarily limited to the traditional artist-audience dynamic.
The program is divided into two distinct grant initiatives: Exploration Grants, supporting hosted visits for artists of at least 30 days over a period of up to 15 months during which artists and organizations are to begin to imagine and plan ways to build demand; and Implementation Grants, supporting artists hosted by organizations for at least 90 days over a period of up to three years. Both Exploration and Implementation grants will be offered in 2015 but organizations may only apply for one of the grant types. A total of 40 Implementation grants will be awarded in the next two rounds.
Sponsor Deadline for Intent to Apply Form: April 24, 2015

|Street Outreach Program|
The purpose of the Street Outreach Program (SOP) is to fund the provision of street-based services to runaway, homeless, and street youth who have been subjected to, or are at risk of being subjected to, sexual abuse, prostitution, or sexual exploitation. In communities across the country, young people are living on the streets after running from or being asked to leave homes characterized by abuse, neglect, or parental drug and alcohol abuse. Once on the streets, such youth are at risk of being sexually exploited or abused by adults for pleasure or profit. In addition, youth may engage in shoplifting, survival sex, or drug dealing in order to provide for their basic needs. These services, which are provided in areas where street youth congregate, are designed to assist such youth in making healthy choices regarding where they live and how they behave.
Sponsor Deadline for Intent to Apply Form: April 10, 2015

NIH Postpones New Biosketch Format Requirement until May 25, 2015
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently announced that a new biosketch format will be required for all applications submitted for FY2016 funding, and will be required beginning May 25, 2015. Originally, the requirement was to go into effect beginning January 25, 2015, but in response to input from the research community, the mandatory change in format was postponed.
The NIH has been piloting a planned modification of the biosketch since June 2012. The new format increases the page limit from 4 to 5 pages and increases the number of peer-reviewed publications from 15 to 20. The new format allows investigators to include a link to a complete listing of their publications in SciENcv or My Bibliography.
Visit the NIH website under the heading “Additional Format Pages” to obtain templates for the new biosketch format: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/424/index.htm.
Local Assistance Available with New Biosketch Formatting
