Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Interventions to Eliminate Health Inequities

There is a need to identify effective interventions for heart, lung, blood, and sleep diseases that could have a transformative population level impact on health inequities if expanded at the national level.

Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Critical Challenge (CC)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

• Provide new knowledge for implementing strategies that will tackle inequities
• Provides opportunity to create multidiscipline research communities focused on health inequities
• Will gain momentum from federal and national implementation institutions to promote effective interventions to address health inequities

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

• Capitalizing on new methods, metrics and tapping big data could provide a promising platform to use systems science to better understand the barriers to eliminating health inequities in a short timeframe
• Identifying barriers will allow investigators to devise innovative implementation strategies that can reduce health inequities
• NHLBI could encourage communities of researchers to use team science to both identify barriers and link with other teams to implement strategies to reduce and eliminate barriers
• Established NHLBI health inequities Think Tank and space for developing innovative strategies to address health inequities.

Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Few reviewers in R01 study sections are from minority institutes

Recruitment of investigators who had or currently have R01 and equivalent grant awards from minority institutes to R01 study sections will diminish this under-representative situation.

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

To build on the information obtained from population based and epidemiological studies

What is the basis for relative resistance or vulnerabilities to obesity or related adverse health effects observed in various segments of population?

Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Critical Challenge (CC)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

Population based and epidemiological studies have identified segments of population that are resistant or susceptible to obesity and cardiovascular risks. Continued research is needed to identify additional such populations and their differences. Moreover, the next phase of research could be to understand the basis for this relative resistance or vulnerabilities, and exploit the information to improve obesity and cardiovascular disease risk at a community level.

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

Moving forward, strategies are needed that don’t yield only incremental benefits, but instead emphasize ‘high risk, high impact’ research to some extent. Given the enormous public health crisis obesity represents we urge continued support of basic, clinical, population, and translational obesity research.

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Translation Research Dissemination & Implementation Frameworks

We need to identify and test the proven effective dissemination and implementation frameworks that are relevant to heart, lung, and blood disorders in order to scale up evidence-based interventions in real world settings, ultimately improving health equity among minority populations, including low income minority residents living in public housing.

Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Critical Challenge (CC)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

• Ability to determine how much of an evidence based intervention can be sustained in real world settings.
• Add utilization of D&I frameworks to researcher’s core competency training skills.
• Promote long term sustainability of evidence based interventions.

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

• Researchers from the 2014 NIH’s Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation: Transforming Health Systems to Optimize Individual and Population Health presented compelling evidence that dissemination and implementation frameworks are an effective means to scaling up evidence based interventions.

Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Training Support for Non-Research-Intensive Institutions

Institutions that are less research intensive, which may characterize some of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions and tribal institutions with primarily minority faculty and/or student body, may need additional support for training researchers and for performing both hypothesis driven and student integrated research to provide an environment conducive with NIH efforts to enhance... more »

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

The grant submission process involves increasingly sophisticated administrative mechanics that many of these institutions do not have the resources to systematically or efficiently support with the requisite grant submissions and administration staff. For example, many challenges exist in putting together complex budgets with subcontracts, completing some (all) of the forms for on-line submission with increasing numbers of new RFA specific required documents, and recognizing the amount of time required to complete the submission process given the increasing number of previously not required mandates. In non-research-intensive institutions, there may be limited or no administrative support for these purely mechanical procedures, and additional training and resources are needed to support the increasingly complex grant process.
