OBSSR Launches Two Funding Opportunities focused on Intimate Partner Violence Research

On October 4, the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) announced two Implementing a Maternal Health and Pregnancy Outcomes Visions for Everyone (IMPROVE) initiative funding opportunities focused on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) research. NIH launched the IMPROVE initiative in 2019 to support research that aims to minimize preventable causes of maternal mortality and improve maternal health outcomes.

Within this initiative, the Career Enhancement Award to Advance the Study of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in the Context of Maternal Morbidity and Mortality Research invites experienced researchers in maternal morbidity and mortality to enhance their skills and knowledge in intimate partner violence (IPV). The program offers research training, career development, and a small-scale research project to help experienced investigators acquire the necessary skills to incorporate intimate partner violence (IPV) and related concepts into their ongoing research.

The second funding opportunity is the R25 for Short Courses on Techniques for Measuring Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in Different Populations, which aims to facilitate educational activities that enhance comprehension of biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research, as well as its implications.

Applications for both opportunities are due December 1 and you can find additional information here
