2021 Approved Research Concepts

Innovative Health Care Models for Persons with Multiple Chronic Conditions from Populations That Experience Health Disparities

This initiative will support innovative, collaborative, and multidisciplinary research designed to study the effective integration and implementation of recommended guidelines of care and their impact on health outcomes of persons with multiple chronic conditions (MCCs) from populations that experience health/health care disparities.

Practice-Based Clinical Research Networks to Improve Health Care for Populations That Experience Health Disparities

This initiative will support disease-agnostic practice-based clinical research networks (PBRNs) in ambulatory primary care settings that serve patients from designated populations experiencing health disparities and are led by clinicians with backgrounds that are underrepresented in health-related sciences.

Innovative Multi-Level Approaches and Strategies to Prevent, Test and Treat HIV in Primary Care Settings in Populations Experiencing Health Disparities in Geographic Hot Spots

This initiative will support R01 projects that examine innovative approaches and strategies to prevent, test and treat HIV among populations experiencing health disparities or subgroups within primary care settings located in geographic areas with a high rate of new infections.

Small Business Initiative (Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer – SBIR/STTR)

The proposed initiative will support small business innovation research proposing to develop a product, process or service for commercialization with the aim of improving minority health or reducing and ultimately eliminating health disparities. Appropriate technologies should be effective, accessible, affordable, and culturally acceptable.

Community-Level Interventions to Improve Minority Health and Reduce Health Disparities

The proposed initiative will support research to develop and test community-level interventions to improve minority health and reduce health disparities.

The Role of Work in Health Disparities in the U.S.

The proposed initiative will support innovative population-based research that generates new knowledge to understand and address the role of work as a social determinant that contributes to health disparities.

Clinical Research Education and Career Development (CRECD) Program

The purpose of the Clinical Research Education and Career Development (CRECD) Program is to support research educational activities to enhance diversity for the research workforce in clinical and translational sciences by providing grant support to low-resource institutions that offer doctorate degrees in the health professions or in a health-related science. This is a renewal of PAR-16-350.
