HRSA Grant Funding for EMSC State Partnership Regionalization of Care (SPROC)
Deadline: Feb. 3, 2012
This announcement solicits applications for the EMSC State Partnership Regionalization of Care (SPROC) Program. The Institute of Medicine, Future of Emergency Care: Key Findings and Recommendations Fact Sheet, June 2006, highlighted some key concerns regarding the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system and emergency departments (EDs). Overall EMS and EDs are not well equipped to handle pediatric care; most children receive emergency care in general (not children's) hospitals, which are less likely to have pediatric expertise, equipment and policies in place for the care of children. Children make up 27 percent of all ED visits, but only 6 percent of EDs in the United States have all the necessary supplies for pediatric emergencies; many drugs and medical devices have not been adequately tested on, or dosed properly for children; and while children have increased vulnerability to disasters, disaster planning has largely overlooked their needs. The EMSC Program is seeking proposals to support projects that aim to reach beyond state borders to overcome barriers to specialized pediatric medical and trauma services.

NIH Grant Funding for Causes and Consequences of Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes (R01)
Deadline: Mar. 20, 2012
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for research project grants to study the causes and consequences of Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes (CFRD). CFRD is one of the most common complications of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) that occurs in almost half the patients with Cystic Fibrosis as they age. CF patients with CFRD have a higher morbidity and mortality than those who do not develop CFRD. It is not currently known why some patients develop CFRD although some genetic variants have been implicated. The mechanisms for the steeper decline in lung disease in patients with CFRD are also not understood. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases invites applications that study the etiology of CFRD in humans and animal models, as well as studies to understand the mechanisms for the increased morbidity in patients with CFRD.
