Notice of Special Interest (NOT-OD-23-166): Research on Family Support and Rejection in the Health and Well-Being of Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations
The NIDDK is pleased to announce the release of a Notice of Special Interest (NOT-OD-23-166): Research on Family Support and Rejection in the Health and Well-Being of Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations. The first available due date is September 25, 2023.
The goal of this NOSI is to foster research on the impact and consequences of family rejection and family support on the health and well-being of SGM individuals. Studies can use various approaches to investigate the influences of family rejection, acceptance, affirmation, support, and belonging on the immediate and long-term health and health outcomes of SGM individuals; and may include approaches to prevent, reduce, or treat adverse effects associated with family rejection and/or improve or maintain the health of SGM people.
NIDDK is interested in applications focused on understanding how family rejection and family support contribute to development, progression, and/or management of diseases and conditions within NIDDK’s mission in SGM individuals. NIDDK encourages research conducted using an equity lens, consideration of social determinants of health and health-related social needs, and leveraging community-engaged research approaches that meaningfully include people who identify as SGM and who are living with NIDDK-relevant diseases or conditions.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NIDDK staff to ensure mission relevance and must select one of the NOFOs listed within this particular NOSI. For information on NIDDK’s mission, please see https://www.niddk.nih.gov/about-niddk/meet-director/mission-vision.
