NIDCR Releases 2014-2019 Strategic Plan
NIDCR strategic plan The NIDCR 2014-2019 Strategic Plan is now available online. The Plan outlines NIDCR’s four key goals:

  • Support the best science to improve dental, oral, and craniofacial health
  • Enable precise and personalized oral health care through research
  • Apply rigorous, multidisciplinary research approaches to overcome disparities and inequalities in dental, oral, and craniofacial health
  • Ensure that a strong research workforce is dedicated to improving dental, oral, and craniofacial health

NIDCR Invites Applications for Research to Reduce Disparities in the Oral Health of Children
a group of childrenNIDCR continues its commitment to understanding and eliminating the disproportionate burden of oral diseases suffered by U.S. children. Through a cooperative agreement funding mechanism, the Institute will support intervention studies as well as studies designed to rigorously evaluate the outcomes of existing programs or policies to assess their capacity to influence oral health disparities and inequalities in U.S. children younger than 21 years of age.

Applications for "Multidisciplinary and Collaborative Research Consortium to Reduce Oral Health Disparities in Children: A Multilevel Approach (RFA-DE-15-006)" are due on December 9, 2014 (AIDS applications are due on February 27, 2015). About 8 awards are expected. In addition, a data coordinating center (RFA-DE-15-007) will be funded to support and coordinate activities of the individual projects that together form the Consortium.


NIDCR Considers Ideas for Improving Small Business Research Program
group of people in a meetingSmall Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs stimulate technological innovations to invest federal research funds in priority areas. Earlier this summer, NIDCR asked entrepreneurs, the small business community, dentists and other health care professionals, dental product distributors, and others to provide suggestions for removing barriers to development and commercialization of new products (NOT-DE-14-006). We also asked small business applicants to describe the barriers they face when applying for SBIR/STTR grants. The deadline for sending suggestions was July 31, 2014.


Medical Research Scholars Program Selects Three Dental Students
Three dental students were selected to take part in the 2014-2015 NIH Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP) and will be conducting research in NIDCR’s laboratories. The trainees are Mr. Peter Fung of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Ms. Molly Hague of the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry, and Ms. Jennie Leikin of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.

The MRSP trains the most promising future dentists, physicians, and veterinarians in research methods. Scholars accepted into the MRSP are provided with a year-long, highly competitive research training experience that is designed to inspire research careers.

NIDCR Welcomes Two Dental Public Health Residents
Two new residents have joined NIDCR's Residency Program in Dental Public Health for the 2014-2015 year. The Residency Program, located on the NIH Campus in Bethesda, Maryland, is a 12-month full-time ADA-accredited training program for dentists planning careers in dental public health, with an emphasis on oral and craniofacial health-related epidemiologic research.

On June 2, Marushka Silveira, B.D.S., M.P.H., Ph.D., joined the Residency Program. Dr. Silveira received her dental training at Dr. D.Y. Patil Dental College, Navi Mumbai in India and an M.P.H. and Ph.D. with Epidemiology focus from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her primary interest is the assessment of the role that psychosocial factors play in determining dental and craniofacial health.

On July 1, Sayo Adunola, D.D.S., M.P.H., began her residency. Dr. Adunola completed her dental training at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and earned an M.P.H. from the Master of Public Health Program at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Her primary interests are oral health literacy and oral health care ultization.

3 NIDCR Fellows Win 2015 FARE Awards

HHS/NIH News

Sylvia Mathews Burwell Begins Tenure as Secretary of Health & Human Services
Sylvia Mathews BurwellIn June 2014, Sylvia Mathews Burwell was sworn in as the Secretary of Health & Human Services (HHS). Before joining HHS, she was director of the Office of Management and Budget, and before joining the federal government, Secretary Burwell gained vast experience in private industry. She was president of the Walmart Foundation, overseeing more than $1 billion in contributions around the world. She was also the president of the Global Development Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Secretary Burwell received an A.B. from Harvard University and a B.A. from Oxford University, where she was a Rhodes Scholar.


NIH Developing Policies to Require Sex/Gender Inclusion in Preclinical Research Plans
In May, NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., and NIH Office of Research on Women's Health Director Janine A. Clayton, M.D., announced that NIH is developing policies to require preclinical research grant applicants to report study designs that account for a balance of male and female cells or animals. Historically, researchers have used mainly male animals and ignored the sex of the cells used in experiments. With the policies now being developed, NIH will be asking scientists to include in their study design a way to compare experimental effects on males and females. Current grants are not affected, and in October, NIH will issue more information about the phased strategy of adopting the new policies.

NIH Pilots Sustained Award Programs for Investigators
Sustained Award Programs for InvestigatorsNIH is piloting programs that award grants with longer terms to provide investigators with more stable support. Applications for these awards do not require descriptions of specific aims articulated in the traditional format. Instead, investigators describe their research plans and demonstrate how they will leverage and translate prior accomplishments into approaches that will shape future research.

The programs are intended for investigators from a range of career stages, backgrounds, and disciplines. Currently, the NIH Common Fund supports the NIH Pioneer Award to support individual investigators who propose pioneering approaches to major research challenges. In addition, the National Cancer Institute announced in June 2014 a new Outstanding Investigator Award that will provide long-term support to investigators who have extraordinary records of cancer research productivity and who propose to conduct exceptional research. 

NIH 3D Print Exchange Makes 3D Files Freely Available
Three-dimensional printingThree-dimensional (3D) printing-the creation of a physical object from a digital model-is being applied to health and science research. In June 2014, NIH announced the launch of a public website (http://3dprint.nih.gov/) for visitors to share, download, and edit 3D images related to health and science. The 3D Print Exchange makes files freely available, along with offering video tutorials for new users and a discussion forum to promote collaborations. The site also features tools that convert scientific and clinical data into ready-to-print 3D files.


NIH Pilots a Team Training Program for Small Business Innovation  
Team training for a small business innovation The National Science Foundation's Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program has been adapted for the life sciences and is now being offered to small businesses at NIH through a team training pilot program known as I-Corps at NIH. Each year, NIH awards more than $700 million in SBIR/STTR research and development awards, and starting this summer, selected small businesses can take part in the I-CORPS pilot program.

The I-CORPS curriculum enables NIH-funded small businesses to learn how to develop scalable business models for commercially viable technologies related to disease detection and treatment, how to protect intellectual property, and how to develop regulatory and reimbursement strategies. The National Cancer Institute; National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences; National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute; and National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke are taking part in the pilot program.

BRAIN Initiative Establishes Vision, Budget, and Timeline 
BRAIN InitiativeNIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., accepted recommendations in June 2014 for the 12-year scientific vision, budget, and timeline of the Brain Initiative. The NIH efforts on the BRAIN Initiative will seek to map the circuits of the brain, measure the fluctuating patterns of electrical and chemical activity flowing within those circuits, and understand how their interplay creates our unique cognitive and behavioral capabilities.

Previously, NIH announced an investment of $40 million in fiscal year 2014, and President Obama made a request for $100 million for NIH's component of the initiative in fiscal year 2015. The investment in the BRAIN Initiative would increase to $400 million per year for fiscal years 2016-2020 and would increase to $500 million per year for years 2020-2025.

"While these estimates are provisional and subject to congressional appropriations, they represent a realistic estimate of what will be required for this moon shot initiative," said Dr. Collins. "As the Human Genome Project did with precision medicine, the BRAIN Initiative promises to transform the way we prevent and treat devastating brain diseases and disorders while also spurring economic development."

NIH Launches Program Called Illuminating the Druggable Genome
Illuminating the Druggable Genome program In July, NIH leaders announced a new NIH Common Fund three-year pilot project to explore poorly understood genes that have the potential to be modified by medicines. The Illuminating the Druggable Genome program will support research of understudied genes in four important druggable gene families: nuclear receptors, ion channels, protein kinases, and G-protein coupled receptors. For the initial phase of the program, NIH awarded $5.8 million to eight institutions.

In addition to funding from the NIH Common Fund, support comes from other NIH components, including the National Cancer Institute; National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences; National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases; National Institute of Mental Health; and National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

GTEx Project Expands Resource Database and Tissue Bank for Genotype Analyses
In August, eight grants were awarded as part of the Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project at NIH. GTEx is characterizing gene activity in tissues to create an atlas of human gene expression. The researchers are expanding a resource database and tissue bank that is used to study how inherited genomic variants may influence gene activity and lead to certain diseases. The eight research groups could receive as much as $15 million over three years. The project is funded by the NIH Common Fund; National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; and National Institute of Mental Health.

NIH Changes Resubmission Policy for Grant Applications

NIH has changed the policy for resubmission of grant applications. After an unsuccessful resubmission of a grant application, a researcher can submit the unsuccessful resubmission in a new grant application without substantial changes to project scope or content.
