COVID Decision Modeling Grants – Jun 30

Posted by Johns Hopkins University on June 9, 2020

With support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, researchers from the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON), Duke University Margolis Center for Health Policy, University of Michigan Medical School, and the Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM) have partnered to catalyze innovative COVID-19 decision models for rapid uptake and impact.

To that end, the COVID Decision Modeling Initiative (CDMI) will support the development of decision models that inform the urgent needs of decision makers responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

CDMI has several specific goals with respect to facilitating responsive decision modeling research, including determining key priorities and critical questions where decision modeling can support better decisions and outcomes during the pandemic; leveraging the SMDM repository of models and network of decision modelers to address COVID-19; and funding six to ten projects with rapid impact potential.

To optimize the success of decision modeling projects selected for funding, the research team will coordinate efforts from their institutions along with the SMDM COVID-19 Modeling Special Committee to provide connectivity between decision makers and decision modelers and disseminate the combined CDMI results to the public at large. Johns Hopkins University will administer six to ten agreements for projects with anticipated impact within four to six months of the grant start date.

Modelers who have submitted a model description of their research to the SMDM repository and/or are willing to submit modeling description from the output of this grant opportunity to the public-facing SMDM repository are eligible to apply. All applicants must demonstrate the ability to manage grant awards from U.S. federal or private sponsors.

Applications for decision modeling grants will be accepted from May 18 through June 30, 2020, and award decisions will be made on a rolling basis. Applicants will be notified immediately via email if their application has been chosen for an award.

For more information about the initiative, including complete application instructions and an FAQ, see the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing website.

Deadline: June 30, 2020
