Purpose

The NIH Office of Science Policy (OSP) within the Office of the Director (OD) announces the availability of administrative supplements to support research on bioethical issues to develop an evidence base that may inform future policy directions. Applicants may propose to supplement parent awards focused on bioethics or to add a component related to bioethics to a parent award in which bioethics was not the focus. Note that applications must be within the general scope of the parent award.

All applications to this funding opportunity announcement should fall within the mission of the Institutes/Centers. The following NIH Offices may co-fund applications assigned to those Institutes/Centers: the Office for Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), the Office for Research on Women’s Health (ORWH), the Sexual and Gender Minority Research Office (SGMRO), and the Tribal Health Research Office (THRO).

Background

Ethical considerations are intrinsic to the responsible conduct of biomedical research and the translation of scientific and technological advances into practice. Research into bioethical issues can provide an evidentiary basis to guide conduct, content, and/or application of the biomedical and behavioral sciences and their associated policies, which becomes of increasing importance as science and societal views continue to evolve. Ethical questions and challenges are interlinked with many of NIH’s general areas of scientific priority, such as responding to public health needs (e.g., the opioid crisis, desire for precision medicine interventions) and emerging scientific opportunities (e.g., new data sharing infrastructure, innovative technologies). The investment in and the integration of bioethics-related research and policy demonstrates NIH’s commitment to safeguarding the integrity of the research that it conducts and supports, which, in turn, facilitates public participation and trust in the research enterprise.

This administrative supplement funding opportunity announcement will provide an opportunity for NIH-supported researchers to support research on bioethical issues to develop an evidence base that may inform future policy directions. Applicants may propose to supplement parent awards focused on bioethics or to add a component related to bioethics to a parent award in which bioethics was not the focus.

Specific Areas of Research Interest

The NIH seeks to fund research on ethical considerations related to biomedical research. Applications for projects that do not propose a research question or research aim specific to a bioethical issue that may inform future policy directions (e.g. applications that propose only to support training or educational activities that do not involve investigation of a research question) will not be considered. Issues of interest fall within the scope of research supported by the NIH but may be beyond the focus of any one Institute or Center. Applications should propose research on topics that can provide an evidence base that may inform future policy directions, which includes current or future NIH-issued policies, other federal policies, laws, and regulations, as well as policies governing the practice of research or medicine. Overarching areas of research interest may include but are not limited to:

  • New and emerging technology development and use, such as: gene editing; organoids; artificial intelligence; machine learning; brain implants and modulation; digital health; consumer-generated data; synthetic biology
