Don't forget about NIH Rapid Reponse grants
Given the horrible disasters that seem to have descended on the world in the past few weeks, I wanted to make sure that you are all aware that NIH provides grants to examine the impact of disasters on affected populations. These grants undergo a quick review process that will allow you to receive funding and begin work soon after disasters happen. Such grants could be used to examine, for example, the impact of the Boston bombings, the Texas fertilizer plant explosion, or the recent earthquake in China. View the Rapid Assessment Post-Impact of Disaster R03 funding opportunity here. There is also an R21 available with the same focus.
