Center for Innovation in Sleep Self-Management

NIH/NINR Funded CISSM Pilot Grants

This 1-year grant of $86K is supported through external funding from NIH/NINR.  The PI of the project is required to be a doctorally-prepared Registered Nurse, new or early stage investigator, or an established investigator with a new focus on sleep. Projects that are responsive to this call will: 1) integrate the CISSM Conceptual model; 2) involve self-management to improve sleep, health, well-being, and quality of life; 3) engage a population with a chronic illness; 4) integrate technology in the application; 5) incorporate NINR Common Data Elements 6) incorporate CISSM CDEs, and 7) provide data that will be used for a larger extramural study.

Since this call is for a 1-year grant, applications involving the following will be considered:

  • Intervention prototype development
  • Existing intervention prototype testing
  • Application of technology used in other areas of health that could be applied to sleep.

Investigators will be provided with ongoing mentoring by the pilot core and assistance from the technology core of the CISSM. We encourage those thinking about applying for pilot grants to discuss proposed application with pilot core directors- Drs. Sue McCurry (smccurry@uw.edu) and Carol Landis (calandis@uw.edu) in advance.

Timeline:

  • 10/16/19 – Letter of Intent due
  • 11/15/19 – Applications due
  • 6/1/20 – 5/31/21 – project dates

UW-Funded Pilot Awards (RIFP) – Not accepting applications at this time

The Center for Innovation in Sleep Self-Management (CISSM) in collaboration with the ONR pilot research program is offering 1-year grants of up to $20,000. These grants are internally funded and are available to UW faculty members. One member of the research team is required to be a Registered Nurse. Projects that are responsive to this call will: 1) engage population(s) with chronic illness; 2) have a research focus on sleep deficiency, sleep health related to population health, precision health in relation to biomarkers, or secondary data analysis of existing sleep data; 3) provide data that will be used for a larger extramural study. Indicate on the cover page of the proposal if you would like to be considered for CISSM funding.

Use of technology highly encouraged, but not required. Intervention study highly encouraged, not required.  If the proposal does not focus on an intervention, the researcher will need to provide preliminary data to support the development of an intervention study.
