Description: Purpose. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages Small Research Grant (R03) applications that propose to study the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and/or management of asthma in older adults. Much of what is known about asthma in adults is based on studies in younger adult populations; however, the mechanisms underlying asthma in some older adults may differ, which may impact on diagnostic, treatment, and prevention strategies. This FOA is intended to stimulate research to address knowledge gaps and research opportunities in asthma in later life. A variety of study approaches are encouraged with this FOA including basic, translational, clinical, and epidemiological studies. Different types of projects may be supported by this mechanism, including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. The R03 is intended to support small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Small Research Grant (R03) award mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, PA -10-263, that encourages applications under the R01 research grant mechanism, and PA-10-264, that encourages applications under the R21 exploratory/developmental mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
