Research on Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions (R21)

Deadline: Applications are accepted by continuous receipt.
Award Ceiling: TBD

This FOA encourages requests for access to research resources for multi-site exploratory and confirmatory clinical trials focused on promising interventions, as well as biomarker-or outcome measure validation studies that are immediately preparatory to trials in stroke prevention, treatment, and recovery. Successful applicants may be given access to the NIH StrokeNet infrastructure. Following peer review, NINDS will prioritize trials among the highest scoring to be given access to the StrokeNet infrastructure. The StrokeNet National Coordinating Center (NCC) will work with the successful applicant to implement the proposed study efficiently. The StrokeNet National Data Management Center (NDMC) will provide statistical and data management support. The Regional Coordinating Centers (RCCs) of the StrokeNet and their affiliated clinical sites will provide recruitment/retention support as well as on-site implementation of the clinical protocol. The StrokeNet network will also be uniquely poised to collaborate with the NINDS Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials Network (NETT) and/or other US and international consortia necessary to conduct larger, definitive trials of promising interventions for stroke treatment, prevention, and recovery. This Funding Opportunity provides a mechanism for organizations to gain access to the StrokeNet infrastructure resource for the conduct of trials within the scope of the StrokeNet program. Successful applicants are expected to provide all clinical trial costs that are not covered by the infrastructure awards to the NCC, NDMC, and RCCs.
