This Program Announcement is to encourage investigator-initiated clinical
research focused on the oral health of special needs populations, including
those with developmental or acquired physical or mental disabilities, people
with mental retardation (MR), people living with HIV/AIDS, and frail or
functionally dependent elders. The types of clinical research welcomed are
epidemiologic, behavioral/social sciences, health care, patient-oriented and
community-based studies aimed at understanding and improving the oral, dental
and craniofacial health status, quality of life and health outcomes among
elders and other special needs populations. Given the complexity of factors
that may contribute to oral health disparities of these populations the use
of multiple approaches and interdisciplinary teams is anticipated. Studies
that nest oral health projects into ongoing, funded research are encouraged.
The research interests of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial
Research are described in the NIDCR Strategic Plan
(http://www.nidcr.nih.gov/about/strat-plan/) and in A Plan to Eliminate Oral
Health Disparities (http://www.nidcr.nih.gov/research/healthdisp/hdplan.pdf).
