Description: Purpose. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is intended to support research in which an unpredictable opportunity has arisen to collect human or animal biosample baseline or exposure data (e.g., following natural or made-made disasters, health care policy changes; etc). The distinctive element of the project should be the need for empirical study for a situation that was not foreseeable and is achievable only if begun within a short time frame. Review by the Initial Review Group and National Advisory Environmental Health Sciences Council (NAEHSC) will be expedited so an award for a successful competing application can be processed in a shorter period of time than is typical. The entire cycle from submission to award when appropriate - is expected to be within 6 months. The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects 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, PAR-10-084, that encourages applications under the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism.
