  1. Epidemiological Research on Disorders of Hearing, Balance, Smell, Taste, Voice, Speech, and Language (R01)

Grant applications are sought from investigators to initiate or competitively supplement studies on the prevalence or incidence and risk factors of communication disorders of hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech, and language. The purpose of the PA is to encourage the submission of applications for epidemiological research studies characterized by their population-based study design. Such projects will contribute to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders clinical research programs by providing a clearer understanding of factors (familial, behavioral, and environmental) influencing communication disorders that will ultimately provide information relevant to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

Applications are currently open and accepted three times a year: Feb 5, June 5, Oct

  1. Research on Mild and/or Unilateral Hearing Loss (R21)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits R21 applications to further our understanding of mild and unilateral hearing loss in infants and young children. This includes research on prevention, better diagnostic methods, and treatments for these forms of hearing loss that are often overlooked or minimized. Children with milder forms of hearing loss (e.g., < 40 dB HL) in one or both ears or any degree of hearing loss in one ear can experience difficulties in the areas of speech, language, behavior, academic, and other aspects of development.  The total project period for an application submitted in response to this funding opportunity may not exceed two years. Direct costs are limited to $275,000 over an R21 two-year period, with no more than $200,000 in direct costs allowed in any single year.

  1. New Technology to Screen for Mild Hearing Loss in Children (SBIR [R43/R44])

The Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) program within the National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), NIH, are working to ensure infants and children with mild forms of hearing loss are identified as soon as possible. Part of this effort involves having screening technology available that can reliably detect these hearing losses.  Applications are invited for the modification or development of new screening technologies that are better able to consistently detect mild hearing loss (i.e., < 40 dB Hearing Level or 40 dB HL) in one or both ears in infants and young children without significantly increasing the number of false positives. An option for pass-refer algorithms specifically designed to detect these types of hearing loss should be considered as a feature on the device. This feature could include the option for lower stimulus levels on Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) and Automated Auditory Brainstem Response (A-ABR) screening equipment or multiple-frequency A-ABR screening. This technology should be able to be utilized in hospitals and healthcare provider offices and simple to operate as it may be used by a variety of individuals with varying degrees of training and experience. In addition, the technology should be noninvasive and able to complete a screen of an infant within a few minutes.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), National Institutes of Health (NIH), solicits grant applications from institutions/organizations designed to foster innovative collaborative research to characterize the structural properties of taste and smell receptors. Additional emphasis is placed on the characterization of the interactions among odors, pheromones, and taste substances with their cognate receptors, and the identity of the critical ligand-receptor binding sites that determine sensitivity and selectivity. One aim of this FOA is to encourage collaborations among chemosensory molecular biologists and biochemists with expertise in the isolation and characterization of membrane proteins, and biophysicists familiar with crystallography, NMR and other analytical tools used in structural analyses.
