The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications that will advance mechanistic and translational research on the onset and worsening of mood and psychotic disorders during the menopausal transition (or perimenopause). In particular, NIMH seeks research that will advance understanding of the underlying neurobiological and behavioral mechanisms of mood disruption and psychosis during the menopausal transition and that will identify novel targets for future mental health interventions or prevention efforts
This FOA uses the R01 grant mechanism, while the companion FOA (PAR-23-102) uses the R21 mechanism. Investigators proposing high risk/high reward projects, projects that lack preliminary data, or studies that utilize existing data may wish to apply using the R21 mechanism, while applicants with preliminary data who seek longer-term funding may wish to apply using the R01 mechanism.
