The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), National Institute of Child
Health and Human Development (NICHD), and the National Institute of Dental and
Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) invite applications to encourage collaborative
multidisciplinary biobehavioral research that can elucidate the mechanisms
underlying disparities in pregnancy outcomes as well as interventions to
reduce such disparities. The disparity in pregnancy outcomes among minorities
is largely due to preterm delivery (PTD) and low birth weight (LBW), which
disproportionately affect these populations. While these problems occur across
populations, and there are most likely commonalities among all groups, their
greater incidence among minorities makes research with these groups
particularly important. This program announcement solicits research to expand
our understanding of the underlying mechanisms that contribute to the racial
and ethnic variations in PTD and LBW and strategies for prevention. The goals
of this program announcement are: (1) to develop innovative strategies to
prevent PTD and LBW in minority populations; and, (2) to expand our
understanding of how psychosocial and environmental factors affect or interact
with the biologic mechanisms that influence pregnancy outcomes. This
solicitation strongly encourages multidisciplinary biobehavioral approaches,
defined as studies proposed by teams of scientists with the requisite
expertise from diverse disciplines (e.g., nursing, medicine, social,
behavioral, biological, health sciences, epidemiology) that reflect an
integrated framework of social and biologic phenomena.
