Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers for research projects with a focus on the treatment and identification of obstructive sleep apnea. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting an application. Funding may be used for costs associated with research, including supplies, salary support, participant costs, and institutional overhead.

This is a focused request for applications (RFA) open to projects that will retrospectively analyze data to evaluate the impact of diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) based on the hypopnea scoring criteria utilized in adult patients. 

This request for applications is specifically for projects that will perform retrospective analysis of existing data sets to assess the impact of treatment in patients with OSA who qualify for treatment using the Recommended hypopnea scoring criteria but not the Acceptable scoring criteria. Analyses of interest in this OSA population include:

  • Studies that assess differences in outcomes of interest, including sleepiness, quality of life, daytime function, excess mortality as well as neurocognitive, metabolic, and/or cardiovascular outcomes.
  • Studies that assess and compare outcomes in subpopulations of patients (e.g., sex, age, race/ethnicity).
  • Studies that evaluate the association between untreated OSA and comorbidities (e.g., depression, hypertension).

The Strategic Research Grant program is organized into three categories to allow flexibility and a range of funding opportunities to potential applicants:

  • Category I is for those applicants seeking funding for projects up to $250,000 and covers a project period of up to three years.
  • Category II is for those applicants seeking funding for projects up to $100,000 and covers a project period of up to two years.
  • Category III is for those applicants seeking funding for projects up to $50,000 and covers a project period of up to one year.
