Learning Disabilities Innovation Hubs Program

by:

The National Institutes of Health, more commonly referred to as NIH, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily liable for encouraging and financially supporting the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The government grants and initiatives of the NIH are all focused on a centralized goal, which is to "seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."

In line with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has partnered with the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to establish the Learning Disabilities Innovation Hubs Program where both agencies intend to solicit resource-related research project grant applications that concentrate on the etiology, manifestation, prevention, and remediation of writing, reading, or mathematics learning disabilities.

The research topic applications that will be covered under this program should be relevant to four research programs of the NICHD: the Language, Bilingualism, and Biliteracy Program; the Early Learning and School Readiness Program; the Mathematics and Science Cognition and Learning: Development and Disorders Program; and the Reading, Writing, and Related Learning Disabilities Program.

Mechanisms Mediating Osteoarthritis in Aging
The National Institutes of Health, in close cooperation with The National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, has recently established a program called Mechanisms Mediating Osteoarthritis in Aging in an effort to improve and encourage the characterization of new and underutilized models in order to gain a deeper understanding of mechanisms that are involved in osteoarthritic progression.


National Science Foundation's Smart Health and Wellbeing Program
The National Science Foundation has constituted the development of the Smart Health and Wellbeing (SHB) Program wherein they intend to address scientific and technical issues that would pave the way towards the transformation of the healthcare process from being rather reactive and hospital centered into becoming preventive, proactive, evidence-based, patient-centered and focused on the wellbeing of the person rather than his/her disease.


Modeling Social Behavior Grant Program
The National Institutes of Health has collaborated with the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in order to establish the Modeling Social Behavior Grant Program wherein they intend to seek applications for the development and evaluation of innovative theories, as well as computational, mathematical, and engineering approaches that could better our understanding of a human being's social behavior.


Exploratory/Developmental Grants Program for Basic Cancer Research in Cancer Health Disparities
The National Institutes of Health has recently formed a partnership with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in an effort to constitute the Exploratory/Developmental Grants Program for Basic Cancer Research in Cancer Health Disparities wherein both agencies intend to solicit grant application from various eligible researchers who are interested in conducing basic research studies regarding the biological causes and mechanisms of cancer health disparities.
