Other Research Grant Opportunities

In addition to the Research Award and Research Grant opportunities offered by IFFGD, a few other organizations also offer research funding opportunities:

Research Grant Opportunities:


DOD Chronic Pain Management, Investigator-Initiated Research Award

Issued by:

  • Department of Defense
  • Dept. of the Army — USAMRAA

Deadline: Oct 13, 2022  

Description: The intent of the FY22 CPMRP is to support studies that have the potential to make significant advances in the research, patient care and/or quality of life in the FY22 CPMRP IIRA Focus Areas. IIRA applications may involve basic, translational, and clinically oriented research, including studies in animal models, research with human anatomical substances, and research with human subjects, as well as correlative studies associated with an existing clinical trial; however, this award may not be used to conduct clinical trials. Multidisciplinary collaborations and innovative approaches are encouraged. Studies seeking to advance new and novel opioid-based therapeutic interventions do not meet the intent of the award mechanism and will not be selected for funding. Studies seeking to understand and reduce opioid utilization in chronic pain management within the context of current prescribing practices are acceptable.

DOD Chronic Pain Management, Clinical Exploration Award

Issued by:

  • Department of Defense
  • Dept. of the Army — USAMRAA

Deadline: Oct 13, 2022

Description: The intent of the FY22 CPMRP CEA is to support proof-of-principle pilot studies, clinical trials, and correlative studies to investigate hypothesis-based, innovative interventions and/or avenues of research that have the potential to resolve current clinical barriers and result in a profound impact on the management of chronic pain. While therapeutic approaches proposed for testing through the CEA must represent novel, hypothesis-based, “outside-the-box” approaches for managing chronic pain, they may include therapies already in clinical use, or undergoing clinical testing, for other diseases, provided that the proposed use for chronic pain management would lead to a major advancement in patient care. In addition, while not required, applications focusing on Complementary and Integrative Health (CIH) or non-pharmacological interventions are encouraged. CEA applications should explain how the proposed work will address a gap in clinical knowledge and enable future studies to transform clinical care for chronic pain management. It is anticipated that outcomes from studies funded by this award will provide scientific rationale for subsequent larger clinical trials of interventions that will transform chronic pain management and/or clinical care. Studies seeking to advance new and novel opioid-based therapeutic interventions do not meet the intent of the award mechanism and will not be selected for funding. Studies seeking to understand and reduce opioid utilization in chronic pain management within the context of current prescribing practices are acceptable.

Notice of Special Interest: Advancing Research in Gastrointestinal Dysfunction in People with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Deadline: July 17, 2024

Description: The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke is issuing this Notice to highlight interest in receiving grant applications focused in the following area(s) to support basic, translational, and/or clinical research on the causes, diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of gastrointestinal dysfunction in people with neurodevelopmental disorders. Areas of programmatic interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Identifying the etiology of these conditions, including mechanisms involving central, peripheral, and enteric nervous systems; brain/gut interactions; immunological or neuroimmunological factors; or other genetic or environmental susceptibility factors
  • Understanding disease mechanisms (in the gastrointestinal system) as they are influenced by the underlying neurodevelopmental disorder
  • Developing model systems (e.g. animal, cell or organ culture) to study pathogenesis and serve as screening platforms for more reliable diagnosis, prevention, or therapy development
  • Accurately diagnosing these conditions, including imaging- or electrophysiology-based techniques
  • Developing biomarkers (diagnostic, prognostic, predictive and pharmacodynamic/response) for use in clinical studies/trials for these conditions or developing pharmacodynamic biomarkers for use in preclinical therapy development for the same conditions.
  • Developing and validating clinical outcome assessment measures (including patient-reported outcomes) for use in clinical trials.
  • Developing treatments, including potential novel therapies or drug/biologic repurposing

Issued by:

  • National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
  • Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

Pilot and Feasibility Clinical and Translational Research Studies in Digestive Diseases and Nutrition (R21 Clinical Trial Optional)

Deadline: Standard dates apply: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/how-to-apply-application-guide

Description: This funding opportunity will foster the advancement of the research mission of the Divison of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition, NIDDK by soliciting research concepts that for pilot and feasibility clinical study proposals would need further assessment of identified protocol operational challenges would enhance operational feasibility of achieving successful completion of a subsequent larger clinical study; or for clinical translational science proposals, promote exploratory and novel science through the use of human subjects.

IFFGD’s 2024 Virtual Digestive Health Wellness & Walk Event: A Unique Charitable Event with Achievable Goals for All

The 2024 Virtual Digestive Health Wellness & Walk held Saturday, July 6, 2024 – Saturday, July 13, 2024 is a charitable event to raise money to support gastrointestinal illness research. 

Like a traditional walk, participants register to be active to get credit for steps taken during the event. However, this event goes beyond a step goal by also awarding points to participants for self-care, wellness, and outreach activities.

By adding these alternative activities, we hope that anyone that wants to participate, can participate. #Moves4GIhealth24
