3 Jun 2019 8:44 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

As directed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, the Defense Health Agency (DHA) Research and Development Directorate J9 manages the Defense Health Program (DHP) Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E) appropriation.  The managing agent for the anticipated Program Announcements/Funding Opportunities is the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).

The FY19 AIMM Program Announcement and General Application Instructions for the following award mechanism are posted on Grants.gov. 

Applications submitted to the FY19 AIMM initiative must address at least one of the following Focus Areas:

  • Algorithms/tools for decision support in a deployed or operational environment to: diagnose military-relevant disease, illness, or injury; prescribe mitigation and treatment strategies; and/or determine risk of Warfighter return to duty.    
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)/deep learning for integrating heterogeneous data streams and analyzing data from wearables to support making informed healthcare decisions.  Wearable sensor systems may pertain to, but are not limited to, the following or combinations of the following:  infectious disease diagnosis; physiologic status monitoring; informing real-time casualty location and triage; and/or environmental monitoring.     
  • AI/deep learning for analyzing and interrogating large medical data sets to: identify patterns/predictors of disease, illness, or injury; and/or identify treatment outcomes.

AIMM Research Award – Preproposal due July 26, 2019

Independent investigators at all academic levels (or equivalent)

  • Supports highly creative and conceptually innovative high-risk research with the potential to accelerate critical discoveries or major advancements that will significantly impact military health and medicine; not intended to support incremental advances on previous or ongoing work.
  • Supports applied research efforts that initiate or enhance potential game-changers that may not be supported by other funding mechanisms or core programs.
  • Applications must address at least one of the FY19 Focus Areas, which include algorithms/tools for decision support in a deployed or operational environment, and AI/deep learning for integrating heterogeneous data streams and analyzing data from wearables to support making informed healthcare decisions, as well as for analyzing and interrogating large medical data sets
  • Cross-cutting, broadly applicable projects with the potential to benefit multiple DoD medical research program areas are highly encouraged.
  • Presentation of preliminary data is not required, though not prohibited.
  • Maximum funding of $350,000 for direct costs (plus indirect costs)
  • Maximum period of performance is 18 months

A pre-application is required and must be submitted through the electronic Biomedical Research Application Portal (eBRAP) at https://eBRAP.org prior to the pre-application deadline.  All applications must conform to the final Program Announcement and General Application Instructions available for electronic downloading from the Grants.gov website.  The application package containing the required forms for each award mechanism will also be found on Grants.gov.  A listing of all USAMRMC funding opportunities can be obtained on the Grants.gov website by performing a basic search using CFDA Number 12.420. 

Applications must be submitted through the federal government’s single-entry portal, Grants.gov.  Submission deadlines are not available until the Program Announcement is released.  For email notification when Program Announcements are released, subscribe to program-specific news and updates under “Email Subscriptions” on the eBRAP homepage at https://eBRAP.org.  For more information about other CDMRP-administered programs, please visit the CDMRP website (https://cdmrp.army.mil).
