Apply Now: $850,000 NIH Grant Funding for Your mHealth Research Ideas

mhealth grant funding nih

The enormous potential for mobile technology to transform health care, personal health management, and basic health research has led to the rapid development of new health-related phone applications, sensors, and devices.

The potential of mHealth is especially relevant to Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs), where cell phone ownership is rising rapidly, but access to health care and providers is often limited. While this promise of mHealth is leading to a large increase in interventions that use mobile technology, research on these interventions is often lacking.

In addition, advances in cell phone and tablet computing have increased the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) to improve healthcare delivery. Significant research is still needed to understand how AI can be best utilized and whether it can be effectively incorporated into LMIC health systems.

mHealth Grants from US National Institutes of Health

As a result, the NIH wants to encourage exploratory research that studies the development, validation, feasibility, and effectiveness of innovative mHealth interventions for LMICs that utilize new or emerging technology, platforms, systems, or analytics.

The Mobile Health: Technology and Outcomes in Low and Middle Income Countries Grants will:

  • Catalyze innovation through multidisciplinary research addressing global health problems
  • Develop an evidence base for mHealth technology to improve health outcomes,
  • Strengthen mobile health research capacity in LMICs.

NIH grant funding will be for two separate phases of mHealth Research:

  • $125,000 per year for R21 phase technology development and feasibility studies over two years
  • $200,000 per year for R33 phase validation, larger-scale feasibility, and effectiveness studies for three years.

All applicants must address both the R21 and R33 phases and are required to propose partnerships between at least one U.S. institution and one LMIC institution.

    It looks like you need a Dunn & Bradstreet number before you can apply and that takes up to 6 weeks to get. Is that correct? That doesn’t seem to provide enough time.

    • Wayan Vota says:

      The Dunn & Bradstreet number racket is one hell of a ripoff. The number should be instant (or nearly so), but they create that artificial 6-10 week wait so you’ll pay the $250 “expediting” fee. Sadly, Dunn & Bradstreet number is required to apply for US federal government awards.
