10-1 Research Coordination Networks in Biological Sciences (RCN) (NSF)

The goal of this program is to encourage and foster interactions among scientists to create new research directions or advance a field. Innovative ideas for implementing novel networking strategies are especially encouraged. Groups of investigators will be supported to communicate and coordinate their research, training and educational activities across disciplinary, organizational, institutional, and geographical boundaries. The proposed networking activities should have a theme as a focus of its collaboration. The focus could be on a broad research question, a specific group of organisms, or particular technologies or approaches. NSF 06-567 (GG 7/11/08)

10-2 Resident Instruction Grants Program for Institutions of Higher Education in Insular Areas (RIIA) (USDA)

CSREES requests applications for the Resident Instruction Grants Program for Institutions of Higher Education in Insular Areas (RIIA) for fiscal year (FY) 2009 to strengthen the capacity of Institutions of Higher Education in Insular Areas to carry out resident instruction, curriculum, and teaching programs in the food and agricultural sciences, and to improve their ability to meet their unique needs. Food and agricultural sciences include programs in agriculture, food and fiber, renewable energy and natural resources, forestry, aquaculture, veterinary medicine, family and consumer sciences, home economics, nutrition and dietetics, rural human ecology, rural economic and community development, and other higher education activities and fields of study related to the production, processing, marketing, distribution, conservation, utilization, consumption, research, and development of food and agriculturally-related products and services. Applicants are encouraged to submit a consortium project application that builds linkages among Insular Area Institutions and with other institutions (including other colleges and universities) having a significant, demonstrable commitment to higher education programs in the food and agricultural sciences and to each specific subject area where grants funds are requested.

10-3 History of Art Grants Program (Kress)

The History of Art grant program supports scholarly projects that will enhance the appreciation and understanding of European art and architecture. Grants are awarded to projects that create and disseminate specialized knowledge, including archival projects, development and dissemination of scholarly databases, documentation projects, museum exhibitions and publications, photographic campaigns, scholarly catalogues and publications, and technical and scientific studies. Grants are also awarded for activities that permit art historians to share their expertise through international exchanges, professional meetings, conferences, symposia, consultations, the presentation of research, and other professional events.

10-4 Recreational Programs (ED)

The purpose of the Recreational Programs is to provide individuals with disabilities with recreational activities and related experiences to aid in their employment, mobility, socialization, independence, and community integration. The local recreation projects that are funded under this program will continue after Federal assistance ends. Under the State plan vocational rehabilitation services must be provided to assist individuals with disabilities, including youths with disabilities transitioning from school to work, to achieve an employment outcome; therefore, services provided under Recreational Programs also must be directed to these adults and transitioning youths.

Deadline: 4/24/2009


10-5 Antarctic Research (NSF)

Scientific research and operational support of that research are the principal activities supported by the United States Government in Antarctica. The goals are to expand fundamental knowledge of the region, to foster research on global and regional problems of current specific importance, and to use Antarctica as a platform from which to support research. The U.S. Antarctic Program provides support for field work only when a compelling justification exists for doing the work in Antarctica (i.e., the work can only be done, or is best done, in Antarctica). The program also supports antarctic-related analytical research performed at home organizations. NSF 09-536

Deadline: 6/8/2009

10-6 NSF Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowships (EAR-PF) (NSF)

The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) awards Postdoctoral Fellowships to highly qualified investigators within 3 years of obtaining their PhD to carry out an integrated program of independent research and education. The research and education plans of each fellowship must address scientific questions within the scope of EAR disciplines. The program supports researchers for a period of up to 2 years with fellowships that can be taken to the institution or national facility of their choice. The program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with experience in research and education that will establish them in leadership positions in the Earth Sciences community. NSF 09-526

Deadline: 7/1/2009


10-7 Prostate Cancer New Investigator Award (DOD)

The New Investigator Award supports independent PIs in the early stages of their careers and requires a designated collaborator. The PCRP seeks PIs who have innovative, high-impact ideas or new technologies applicable to prostate cancer research, prevention, detection, diagnosis, or treatment. The PCRP seeks applications from all areas of basic, preclinical, behavioral, and epidemiological research that are responsive to one or more of the FY09 PCRP focus areas. PCRP Focus Areas are: Imaging; Biomarkers; Therapy; Genetics; Tumor Biology; and Survivorship. W81XWH-09-PCRP-NIA (GG 2/10/09)

Deadline: Preapplications: 4/29/2009; Applications: 5/20/2009

10-8 Pharmacogenomics Research Network (U01/U19) (NIH)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to allow new and renewal applications for research groups to compete to become part of the Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN), and to create network resources that serve the entire PGRN. The PGRN is a consortium of interdisciplinary groups with a core mission to conduct research into understanding the genetic basis of variable drug responses, both therapeutic and adverse. The scientific objectives of the research network include definition of the pressing problems for safe and effective use of medications, establishment of truly cross-disciplinary research groups, application of the most appropriate genetic and genomic methods to important sample collections, discovery and replication studies that identify variation in critical genes and biological pathways, elucidation of the functional consequences of genetic variation for the drugs being studied, and understanding the clinical implications of genotyping to predict drug responses.

10-9 Prematurity Research Initiative (PRI) (MOD)

The March of Dimes seeks applications requesting grant support for projects related to causes of prematurity. Research proposals of new paradigms based on strong conceptual frameworks are invited. The intent is to provide new insights into the large, and increasing, proportion of preterm deliveries in which the cause (and thus the means of prevention) remains elusive. The proposals need to consider especially, but not limited to, genetics, gene-environment interactions, and animal models. They encourage novel approaches.
