NHBLI Grant Opportunities - submission deadlines are in July and October, 2018

The NHLBI Catalyzing Innovation in Late Phase Clinical Trial Design and Statistical Analysis Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) have been recently published in the NIH Guide:



The purpose of these FOAs is to provide support for planning activities for late phase (phase II and beyond) single-site or multi-site investigator-initiated clinical trials that address critical clinical questions within the mission of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and that require non-traditional clinical trial designs with the opportunity for statistical novelty and/or innovation.

Examples of scientific areas / clinical questions for which alternative approaches may be required:

  • studies of rare diseases and/or therapeutics
  • studies in sub-populations of more common diseases, e.g. precision medicine trials
  • late-stage implementation research
  • interventional trials for which
    • non-randomized study setting is required
    • optimal treatment control arm may be difficult to implement
    • innovative design and analysis would result in optimizing trial efficiency and cost

The submission deadlines are in July and October, 2018.

For any questions about these FOAs from potential applicants planning a clinical trial in an area of blood science that is within the mission of NHLBI, please contact:
