Limited Submission Funding Opportunity for Texas A&M Faculty and PIs


Building Population Health Research Capacity in the U.S. Affiliated Pacific Islands (U24)


Limited Submission Program (LSP): This funding opportunity and the Limited Submission Program (LSP) is open to all Texas A&M University faculty and principal investigators who meet the eligibility requirements. Texas A&M and The Texas A&M University System agencies jointly administer this process to select the proposal(s) that will be submitted to the sponsor in response to this solicitation.


PI Eligibility:  Any individual(s) with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as the Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s) (PD(s)/PI(s)) is invited to work with his/her organization to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support.


The proposal will be prepared and submitted by Sponsored Research Services (SRS).


Proposal Limit: 1


Summary:  The purpose of this initiative is to: (1) build capacity of organizations in the USAPI to conduct population health research, and (2) support population health research projects that will provide novel data for USAPI populations and serve as the foundation for future research efforts. It is expected that projects will reflect community-identified priorities as well as research gaps in the field. It is expected that projects will include collaborations among diverse partners, such as academic institutions, healthcare providers, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, and Federal or local government agencies. If the applicant organization and partners do not have sufficient expertise in a particular area (e.g., research methodology, biostatistics, data management, etc.), it is expected that the applicant will solicit consultants with this relevant expertise. Project activities may leverage existing federally-funded efforts in the USAPI (e.g., programs funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Health Resources and Services Administration, or the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to support health surveillance or health services) but should not duplicate or supplant these efforts.
