Notice Number: NOT-OD-05-018
Release Date: December 16, 2004
This notice is to inform applicants that the research objectives of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) have been added to PAR-05-026.
The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), http://www.nidcd.nih.gov, supports basic and clinical biomedical and behavioral research in the communication sciences of hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech and language. In April of 2004, the NIDCD sponsored a workshop on Translational Research in Hearing and Balance. Recommendations focusing on emergence into clinical practice included the need to increase dissemination of research evidence (i.e., promote systematic reviews of evidence, identify evidence needs in priority areas), promote the use of participatory research methods (i.e., alignments with advocacy groups), and continue to support research in health communication. The minutes from that workshop are available: (http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/funding/programs/tr/trminutes.asp).
NIDCD participation in this program announcement is an effort to be responsive to the workshop recommendations. NIDCD is interested in research projects in hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech and language that include community participation. Examples of such studies include:
Development of tools to translate NIDCD research findings to special populations or underserved or underrepresented populations.
