    27-11 Virtual Parts Engineering Research (DOD)

    The specific objective of this research initiative is to facilitate advances in technologies that will lead to improved capabilities to sustain/maintain engineered systems. The scope of appropriate research topics for this BAA includes topics that range from those addressing the creation, archiving, and utilization of design and production data/information, to those focusing on the use of virtual design-space to effect a system/part design and production capability. The range of appropriate topics also includes those that address the general issues of integrated, interactive and machine-based software/system engineering environments for modern and advanced approaches to modeling and simulation, visualization, data-access/utilization methodologies (machine-learning, intelligent agents, multi-media, etc.); however, any of these proposed software/system engineering research and data/information-centric efforts must have obvious connections to the physical-system/parts manufacturing focus of this BAA.

    27-17 The Role of Microglia in Normal and Abnormal Immune Responses of the Nervous System (NIH)

    The National Institutes of Health invites applications to promote research into the role of microglia in the initiation and expansion of autoimmune processes of the central nervous system (CNS) and the resulting injury to CNS components. Microglia become reservoirs of infectious agents including viruses, fungi, treponema and prions. Under certain conditions, they assume the phenotypes and functions of macrophages. They may become activitated and then be able to serve in antigen presentation. The contributions of these cells not only to infections of the CNS, but also to autoimmunity, are beginning to be appreciated. The intent of this PA is to intensify interest and investigator-initiated research to attract new investigators to this field and to mobilize interdisciplinary approaches. PA-00-029 (NIHG 12/15/99)

The goal is to strengthen the institutional infrastructure and to develop the capability of faculty members to develop and carry out interdisciplinary drug abuse research. The goals of this program are two-fold: 1) to build a stable infrastructure for drug abuse research in schools of social work; and to increase interdisciplinary participation in drug abuse and addiction in this country.
