NIH Funding Grants for Health Promotion Among Racial and Ethnic Minority Males

The NIH is seeking R01 grant proposals that stimulate and expand research in the health of minority men. This initiative will 1) enhance our understanding of the numerous factors (e.g., sociodemographic, community, societal, personal) influencing the health promoting behaviors of racial and ethnic minority males and their subpopulations, and 2) encourage applications focusing on the development and testing of culturally and linguistically appropriate health-promoting interventions designed to reduce health disparities among racially and ethnically diverse males and their subpopulations age 21 and older.

This FOA will utilize the R01 grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope,  PA-13-331, that encourages applications under the R21 mechanism. Applications are due by February 5. Read the full announcement.
