  1. GRIN2B is a gene located on the short arm of the 12th chromosome at 12p13.1. It is one member of a family of 7 genes: GRIN1, GRIN2A, GRIN2B, GRIN2C, GRIN2D, GRIN3A, and GRIN3B. These genes encode proteins that together form a receptor responsible for sending chemical messages between neurons in the brain. Changes to the GRIN2B gene are generally de novo and cause a condition that, as of 2018, is now referred to as GRIN2B-Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder. This neurological condition is often characterized by low muscle tone, developmental delays, seizures and speech and behavioral difficulties. The spectrum of abilities is quite broad depending on the exact genetic variation. There are no approved therapies, and the current standard of care is not effective in improving cognitive, language or motor deficits. Eligibility Criteria The GRIN2B Foundation Research Grant Award is available to both established and early career investigators with a strong interest in GRIN2B. All individuals should be affiliated with an academic institution, hospital system, non-profit institution or other accredited institutions. International applicants are welcome to apply; however, all materials must be submitted in English. Eligible applicants include post-doctoral fellows, clinical fellows, researchers, physicians and other allied professionals. All applications require either a faculty level appointment or a senior scientific position/faculty member to oversee the project. GRIN2B Foundation does not require a Letter of Intent (LOI). GRIN2B Foundation Research Priority Areas • Furthering the basic understanding of GRIN2B function and expression. • Elucidating neural circuit mechanisms that underlie clinical phenotypes. • Gaining a more in-depth understanding of the varying clinical phenotypes and clinical presentation over development. • Advancing insight into therapeutic interventions, such as the development of novel treatments, evaluation of the efficacy of pharmacological and behavioral treatments, exploration of genetic approaches, and the identification of objective outcome markers for treatment. Budget: The maximum budget for an award is $40,000 per year, for one year. Indirect costs are not supported. Applications close July 31, 2020.

  2. NIH ORWH Science Policy Scholar Travel Award for the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences (OSSD) 2020 Annual Meeting in Marina del Rey, CA For more information, including eligibility criteria, please click here ABOUT THE AWARD The NIH ORWH Science Policy Scholar Travel Awards will support the development of two junior investigators who are focused on women’s health or sex and gender differences and are also interested in research policy by helping to defray the cost of attending the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences’ (OSSD) annual meeting on May 4–7, 2020, in Marina del Rey, CA. ORWH requests that interested investigators submit an abstract on a policy-related matter connected to women’s health or sex and gender differences for consideration as a poster, oral session, or symposium at the OSSD 2020 Annual Meeting. A panel of experts will review the abstracts, and the authors of the two chosen will receive the travel awards. Attendance at the OSSD meeting will be a unique opportunity for investigators to network with leading scientists and clinicians working to advance sex and gender inclusion and policy. AWARD AMOUNT Two ORWH awards of up to $3,000 will be available to support the travel of the selected NIH ORWH Science Policy Scholars, whose OSSD abstracts on women’s health or sex and gender differences policy will have been accepted for a poster, oral session, or symposium at the OSSD 2020 Annual Meeting. APPLICATION AND AWARD TIMELINE • The application period ends February 3, 2020. • The award recipients will be announced March 13, 2020. The individuals will be notified via email. WHO CAN APPLY? Eligibility requirements for the NIH ORWH Science Policy Scholar Travel Award are: Must possess a baccalaureate or higher degree, be a medical student from any health-related discipline, be a postdoctoral trainee, be an American Association for the Advancement of Science fellow, be a medical resident, be a member of the uniformed services or National Guard or be an investigator who is no more than 5 years past doctoral degree or residency. Must be the first author on the submitted OSSD abstract for presentation. Cannot be a Federal employee. Investigators from underrepresented populations are encouraged to apply. HOW TO APPLY Applicants are encouraged to submit abstracts related to research policies relevant to women’s health or sex and gender differences. Examples include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) Studies of the effects of such policies in promoting the research; (2) Identification of policy gaps that might promote such research and projection of their effects; and (3) Identification of specific research disciplines and/or research topic areas where more work is needed to promote women’s health and sex and gender differences.
