Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Promoting Research on Interoception and Its Impact on Health and Disease

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of this NOSI is to promote innovative and rigorous research on interoception and its impact on health and disease. This initiative is broadly supported by many participating NIH institutes, centers, and offices (ICOs). For this NOSI, interoception includes the processes by which an organism senses, interprets, integrates, and regulates signals originating from within itself and represents its internal states. This NOSI encourages basic and clinical research projects that 1) combine diverse expertise; 2) develop and use innovative technologies and approaches to delineate interoceptive mechanisms at the molecular, cellular, circuit, functional, and/or behavioral levels; 3) assess pathophysiological processes of interoception in the context of diseases and disorders; 4) determine the impact of interventions and therapies to manipulate interoceptive processes on health and/or disease; and 5) develop and validate predictive biomarkers, computational models, or artificial intelligence models relevant to interoception and its impact on health and disease.

This notice applies to due dates on or after February 25, 2021, and subsequent receipt dates through May 7, 2024.
