Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Information relevant to Specific Institutes/Centers

National Eye Institute (NEI)

The National Eye Institute (NEI) will support Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Research efforts relevant to NEI’s mission to eliminate vision loss and improve quality of life through vision research. NEI encourages applications that investigate strategies to promote adoption, adaptation, integration, scale-up, and sustainability of evidence-based interventions and practices in the prevention and management of eye- and/or vision-related conditions. Such strategies may include (but are not limited to) the use of digital health technologies such as telehealth (e.g., teleophthalmology, teleoptometry), and imaging-based artificial intelligence (AI) decision support systems.Addressing accessibility needs of individuals with blindness and low vision are encouraged. Additionally, NEI invites applications that seek to advance vision health equity through D&I Research. Examples include (but are not limited to) investigations of implementation strategies that incorporate social determinants of health; research that engage public health practitioners in community settings; and multilevel or intersectoral collaborations (e.g., transportation, education, housing) outside of the traditional vision-health sector.

All investigators are encouraged to contact the NEI Scientific/Research program director in advance of submission. NEI will not support clinical trials that are greater than minimal risk on this funding opportunity. Minimal risk is defined as the probability and magnitude of harm or discomfort anticipated in the research are not greater in and of themselves than those ordinarily encountered in daily life or during the performance of routine physical or psychological examinations or tests.
