Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Deadline: Standard NIH Deadlines

Amount: Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. Maximum project period is 5 years.


Encourages investigators to submit research grant applications that will identify, develop, test, evaluate and/or refine strategies to disseminate and implement evidence-based practices (e.g. behavioral interventions; prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment and disease management interventions; quality improvement programs) into public health, clinical practice, and community settings. In addition, studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures are encouraged.  


  • Clinical trial optional
  • Given the range of expertise that may be needed for conducting dissemination and implementation research, applicants are encouraged to form trans-disciplinary teams of scientists and practice stakeholders to work together to develop and/or test conceptual models of dissemination and implementation that may be applicable across diverse community and practice settings and patient populations, and design studies that will accurately and transparently assess the outcomes of dissemination and implementation efforts
  • In addition to the general description of the scientific objectives, interests of select Institutes and Centers (I/Cs) are summarized within the FOA, including NHLBI, NIMH, NIDCR, NCCIH, NICHD and NINR; applicants are encouraged to contact the Scientific/Research contact of the intended I/C to ensure that the aims of the proposed project are consistent with I/C mission
