Food and Health Research Using the Consumer Food Data System

RWJF and ERS are announcing a call for proposals (CFP) for researchers who will use one or more restricted-use data assets from the CFDS. We seek to develop a cohort of researchers from diverse academic disciplines and institutions who will produce policy-relevant research on food policy; food retail markets; consumer behaviors related to food purchases and diet; and USDA nutrition assistance programs. It is our hope that the resulting research evidence will inform RWJF’s goal of creating equitable access to nutritious food.

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Sex and Gender Differences in Alzheimer’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD)

This NOSI promotes multidisciplinary research to clarify sex and gender differences in the risk, development, progression, diagnosis, and clinical presentation of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (ADRD). Studies that examine sex and gender differences in outcomes (e.g., clinical, functional, well-being) among people living with AD/ADRD as well as AD/ADRD caregiving-related outcomes are also relevant.

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Behavioral and Social Science Priority Areas in Dementia Care Partner/Caregiver Research

This Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) highlights priority areas of dementia care partner/caregiver research other than intervention development. Alzheimer’s disease directly affects more than 6 million Americans, most of them age 65 and older. The number of persons living with AD/ADRD is expected to increase significantly, given projected growth in the aging population, unless this disease can be effectively treated or prevented.

Improving Representativeness in Non-Probability Surveys and Causal Inference with Regularized Regression and Post-Stratifiation

The proposed project has a broad aim of working with the increasing complexities of survey statistics with decreasing response rate. We focus specifically on non-probability samples (samples of convenience) due to their increasing popularity, but note that these non-probability samples are simply an extreme case of a probability based survey with high non-response, and so our methods could be expected to generalize.

Just Tech COVID-19 Rapid-Response Grants

The Social Science Research Council (SSRC), as part of its Just Tech program, seeks proposals from across the social sciences and related fields that address the risks, opportunities, and challenges posed by public health surveillance stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic. We specifically encourage proposals that interrogate the role the public and private sectors may play in mitigating or exacerbating the health crisis, the effects of which are already unevenly distributed.
