NIH/NIMHD/NCI – Surgical Disparities Research Grants


The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research focused on understanding and addressing health disparities in surgical care and outcomes for patients who are from minority and other health disparity populations. The NIH-designated health disparity populations include minority racial and ethnic groups (Blacks/African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Asians, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders) as defined by the U.S. Census, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, population groups residing in rural medically underserved geographic areas, and sexual gender minorities.

For the purpose of this initiative, investigations into minority health and health disparities in surgical care and outcomes include outcomes research, health services research, comparative effectiveness and clinical trial interventions in general surgical care and post-operative care, trauma and critical care, pre-operative care, emergency medicine care (e.g., access to emergency general surgery), obstetric and gynecologic care (like access to emergency cesarean section), orthopedic, cardiac and vascular (such as coronary artery bypass), gastrointestinal tract (such as colorectal, abdominal aortic aneurysm repairs), bariatric, pulmonary, organ transplantation, urologic and surgical oncology.
