Sleep and Social Environment: Basic Biopsychosocial Processes (R21)

Purpose.

This FOA issued by the Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences Research Opportunity Network (OppNet), National Institutes of Health, solicits Research Project Grant (R21) applications from institutions/organizations that propose to investigate the reciprocal interactions of the processes

of sleep and circadian regulation and function with behavioral and social environment processes.

Sleep is a complex biological phenomenon that is essential to normal behavioral and social functioning, as well as optimal health.

In spite of its vital nature, the mechanisms by which social environment factors affect sleep behavior patterns have not been studied systematically, especially within the context of individual vulnerabilities and resilience.

There is a need for greater understanding of the dynamic relationships between behavioral and social environment factors on the one hand and the basic mechanisms of sleep-wake and circadian regulation and function on the other.

This FOA is not intended to support research on or development of treatments or interventions for disorders of sleep or circadian rhythms.

Mechanism of Support.

This FOA will utilize the R21 award mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, RFA-HD-11-101, that encourages applications under the R01 award mechanism.

Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards.

OppNet intends to commit up to $1 million in FY 2011 to fund 5-6 applications submitted in response to this FOA, pending the number and quality of applications and availability of funds.

Pedagogy of the Oppressed, a 1970s book by author Paulo Freire, envisions a world not as a given reality, but as “a problem to be worked on and solved.” That mentality is often applied to the greatest social entrepreneurs.
