Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites revision applications from investigators and institutions/organizations with active National Institutes of Health (NIH)-supported P30 project awards to support an expansion of the scope of approved and funded scientific research programs involving smoking and tobacco-related products and/or their constituents. Investigators and institutions/organizations that are on a funded extension are eligible to apply for a revision. Revision applications for projects that have not originally focused on tobacco use are welcome provided that the applicant team has the requisite scientific expertise and the proposed revision addresses the research priorities related to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulatory authority that are identified in the FOA.

The NIH and the FDA have formed an interagency partnership to foster research relevant to tobacco regulations. The awards under this FOA will be administered by NIH using designated funds from the FDA Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) for tobacco regulatory science mandated by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (FSPTCA), Public Law 111-31. Projects resulting from this FOA are expected to serve the FDA by generating relevant findings and data needed to inform the regulation of the manufacture, distribution, and marketing of tobacco products to protect public health.

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites revision applications to active National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded P30 research center awards to expand the scope of approved and funded formal scientific research programs involving smoking or tobacco related products and/or their constituents. Revision applications for center projects that have not originally focused on tobacco use are also welcome provided that the applicant team has the requisite scientific expertise and the proposed revision addresses the research priorities related to FDA regulatory authority that are identified in the FOA. All applicants responding to this FOA are expected to propose one to four research projects/pilots that respond to the priorities of the FDA Center for Tobacco Products as outlined in the Specific Research Objectives and Scope below.

The awards under this FOA will be administered by NIH using designated funds [from the FDA CTP] for tobacco regulatory science mandated by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (FSPTCA), Public Law 111-31. The NIH and the FDA have formed an interagency partnership to foster research relevant to tobacco regulatory science within the framework of the Tobacco Control Act. Consistent with the FDA CTP mission, this FOA encourages research applications that address such aspects as: understanding the diversity of tobacco products, reducing addiction to tobacco products, reducing toxicity and carcinogenicity of tobacco products and smoke, understanding the adverse health consequences of tobacco use, understanding communications about tobacco products, understanding tobacco product marketing, and understanding how economics and policies affect tobacco product use (http://cancercontrol.cancer.gov/nih-fda/).

Background

With the passage of the FSPTCA in June 2009, the FDA acquired the authority to regulate the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products in order to protect public health.  Under Section 901 of the FSPTCA, the FDA has authority to regulate tobacco products.  A tobacco product is defined as “any product made or derived from tobacco that is intended for human consumption, including any component, part or accessory of a tobacco product (except for raw materials other than tobacco used in manufacturing a component, part, or accessory or a tobacco product).”  As of August 2011, FDA’s jurisdiction of tobacco products included all cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, and smokeless tobacco.  It is anticipated that FDA will assert jurisdiction over all other tobacco products currently not under its jurisdiction that meet the statutory definition of “tobacco product.” (Regulation Identification Number 0910-AG38, Regulation of E-Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products).  A full description of the FSPTCA can be found at: http://www.fda.gov/downloads/TobaccoProducts/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/UCM237080.pdf.  Potential applicants should be aware of the requirements of revised Circular A-110, see: http://grants.nih.gov/archive/grants/policy/a110/a110_guidance_dec1999.htm#faqs.

Specific Research Objectives and Scope

Science will inform the FDA in regulation of the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products in order to reduce the public health toll from tobacco product use in the United States. By way of background, FDA CTP developed a list of 56 research priorities that can be found at: http://cancercontrol.cancer.gov/nih-fda/research.htm.

This FOA is focused on the following ten FDA CTP interest areas. Only applications proposing research projects/pilots relevant to one or more of these ten areas will be considered for funding.

1. Nicotine dependence threshold among youth and adults and impact of nicotine reduction on tobacco product use behavior (e.g., topography, compensation, switching, multiple use, initiation, cessation, relapse)

2. Cigar (small, large, cigarillos) initiation, use (including transitions to other tobacco products and multiple use), perceptions, dependence and toxicity

3. Smokeless tobacco initiation, use (including transitions to other tobacco products and multiple use), perceptions, dependence and toxicity

4. E-cigarettes initiation, use (including transitions to other tobacco products and multiple use), perceptions, dependence, toxicity

5. Other tobacco product (e.g., hookah, pipes, dissolvables) initiation, use (including transitions to other tobacco products and multiple use), perceptions, dependence, toxicity

6. The impact of tobacco product characteristics, (e.g., ingredients, constituents, components, additives such as flavors, and labeling and marketing) on initiation, especially among youth and other vulnerable populations

7. Toxicity thresholds for each of the 20 harmful and potentially harmful constituents identified in the March 2012 Guidance for Industry http://www.fda.gov/TobaccoProducts/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/ucm297752.htm

8. Statistical modeling of the public health impact of  FDA/CTP regulation of potential modified risk tobacco products, e.g., product standards, communications regarding risks of tobacco products

9. Consumer perceptions of tobacco products including the impact of labeling and marketing

10. Effective communication strategies regarding  harmful and potentially harmful constituents and risks of tobacco products

1. Criteria

Only the review criteria described below will be considered in the review process. As part of the NIH mission, all applications submitted to the NIH in support of biomedical and behavioral research are evaluated for scientific and technical merit through the NIH peer review system.

Overall Impact

Reviewers will provide an overall impact score to reflect their assessment of the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field(s) involved, in consideration of the following review criteria and additional review criteria (as applicable for the project proposed).

Scored Review Criteria - Overall

Reviewers will consider each of the review criteria below in the determination of scientific merit, and give a separate score for each. An application does not need to be strong in all categories to be judged likely to have major scientific impact. For example, a project that by its nature is not innovative may be essential to advance a field.

Significance

Does the project address an important issue or a critical barrier in regulatory authority over tobacco products?  If the aims of the project are achieved, how will regulatory science research be informed or regulation be affected? How will successful completion of the aims affect the concepts, methods, technologies, or regulation of tobacco products? 

Investigator(s)

Are the PD(s)/PI(s), collaborators, and other researchers well suited to the project? If Early Stage Investigators or New Investigators, or in the early stages of independent careers, do they have appropriate experience and training? If established, have they demonstrated an ongoing record of accomplishments that have advanced their field(s)? If the project is collaborative or multi-PD/PI, do the investigators have complementary and integrated expertise; are their leadership approach, governance and organizational structure appropriate for the project?  

Innovation

Will the project aid in advancement of developing and evaluating regulations pertaining to the manufacture, distribution, and marketing of tobacco products in order to protect public health?  Will the outcomes of the project provide new information addressing regulatory authority over tobacco products?     

Approach

Are the overall strategy, methodology, and analyses well-reasoned and appropriate to accomplish the specific aims of the project? Are potential problems, alternative strategies, and benchmarks for success presented?  Is the project directly relevant to a specific section the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act?  If the project is in the early stages of development, will the strategy establish feasibility and are any risky aspects addressed? 

If the project involves clinical research, are the plans for 1) protection of human subjects from research risks, and 2) inclusion of minorities and members of both sexes/genders, as well as the inclusion of children, justified in terms of the scientific goals and research strategy proposed?  

Environment

Will the scientific environment in which the work will be done contribute to the probability of success? Are the institutional support, equipment and other physical resources available to the investigators adequate for the project proposed? Will the project benefit from unique features of the scientific environment, subject populations, or collaborative arrangements?     

Additional Review Criteria - Overall

As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will evaluate the following additional items while determining scientific and technical merit, and in providing an overall impact score, but will not give separate scores for these items.

Protections for Human Subjects

For research that involves human subjects but does not involve one of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR Part 46, the committee will evaluate the justification for involvement of human subjects and the proposed protections from research risk relating to their participation according to the following five review criteria: 1) risk to subjects, 2) adequacy of protection against risks, 3) potential benefits to the subjects and others, 4) importance of the knowledge to be gained, and 5) data and safety monitoring for clinical trials.

For research that involves human subjects and meets the criteria for one or more of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR Part 46, the committee will evaluate: 1) the justification for the exemption, 2) human subjects involvement and characteristics, and 3) sources of materials. For additional information on review of the Human Subjects section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.

Inclusion of Women, Minorities, and Children 

When the proposed project involves clinical research, the committee will evaluate the proposed plans for inclusion of minorities and members of both genders, as well as the inclusion of children. For additional information on review of the Inclusion section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.

Vertebrate Animals

The committee will evaluate the involvement of live vertebrate animals as part of the scientific assessment according to the following five points: 1) proposed use of the animals, and species, strains, ages, sex, and numbers to be used; 2) justifications for the use of animals and for the appropriateness of the species and numbers proposed; 3) adequacy of veterinary care; 4) procedures for limiting discomfort, distress, pain and injury to that which is unavoidable in the conduct of scientifically sound research including the use of analgesic, anesthetic, and tranquilizing drugs and/or comfortable restraining devices; and 5) methods of euthanasia and reason for selection if not consistent with the AVMA Guidelines on Euthanasia. For additional information on review of the Vertebrate Animals section, please refer to the Worksheet for Review of the Vertebrate Animal Section.
