The following comprehensive list of resources has been assembled by the ASDS Research Work Group in an effort to provide you with a single source for accessing the most commonly used Internet sites that support clinical research. We will continue to assemble new links for posting to this site to ensure its robustness. We hope you find them useful.
Grant Information from Government Institutions:
US Army Research Laboratory Army Research Office
The U.S. Army Research Laboratory's Army Research Office (ARO) mission is to serve as the Army's premier extramural basic research agency in the engineering, physical, information and life sciences; developing and exploiting innovative advances to insure the Nation's technological superiority. Basic research proposals from educational institutions, nonprofit organizations and private industry are competitively selected and funded.
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
The CDC awards nearly 85 percent of its budget through grants and contracts to help accomplish its mission to promote health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability. Contracts procure goods and services used directly by the agency, and grants assist other health-related and research organizations that contribute to CDC′s mission through health information dissemination, preparedness, prevention, research and surveillance.
US Department of Education Department of Education
The U.S. Department of Education administers about 200 grant programs. Descriptions of these programs, as well as applications and guidelines, may be found on the Department's Web site.
US Department of Energy, Office of Science Department of Energy, Office of Science
The Office of Science of the Department of Energy offers grants for support of work in the following program areas: Basic Energy Sciences, High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics, Advanced Scientific Computing, Fusion Energy Sciences, Biological and Environmental Research and Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists.
US Department of Health and Human Services Department of Health and Human Services
The US Department of Health and Human Services grants/funding page offers information about grants provided by HSS and other federal agencies. It provides a single entry point for funding information for all federal agencies through www.grants.gov, organizes information by grant opportunities, provides tips for preparing grant proposals and gives a summary and detailed review of the HHS grant management process.
US Environmental Protection Agency Environmental Protection Agency
A large part of EPA's mission to protect the environment and public health is accomplished by awarding extramural funds to other organizations to conduct environmental programs or projects. When EPA transfers funds for a public purpose, it uses a legal instrument called an assistance agreement, which may be in the form of a grant or cooperative agreement. This site will provide the ins and outs of EPA grants available, completing the assistance agreement document and other valuable resources.
US Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Human Research Protections
Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP)
The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) provides leadership in the protection of the rights, welfare and wellbeing of subjects involved in research conducted or supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). OHRP helps ensure this by providing clarification and guidance, developing educational programs and materials, maintaining regulatory oversight and providing advice on ethical and regulatory issues in biomedical and behavioral research.
