This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), is intended to support public mental health and/or substance abuse services research in rapidly evolving areas (e.g., changes in service systems, health care financing, policy, etc.) where opportunities for empirical study are, by their very natures, only available through expedited award of support. There are three distinguishing features of an eligible study: 1) the study's scientific value and feasibility are clear, 2) rapid review and funding are required in order for the scientific question to be answered and for the research design to be carried out, and 3) the knowledge gained from the study cannot be obtained through the regular NIH cycle of review and award.

The Economic Development Administration (EDA) is soliciting competitive applications from accredited institutions of higher education and from consortia of accredited institutions of higher education for FY 2007 University Center Economic Development Program funding in the geographic areas served by its Austin and Denver regional offices. Institutions of higher education have many assets and in partnership with EDA establish and operate University Centers. These EDA-sponsored University Centers conduct applied research, provide technical assistance to public and private sector organizations, and conduct other activities with the goal of enhancing regional economic development by promoting a favorable business environment to attract private capital investment and higher-skill, higher-wage jobs. EDA's Austin and Denver regional offices will each hold a teleconference to answer questions about the FY 2007 University Center Economic Development Program competition on March 8, 2007 and February 27, 2007, respectively. Kansas is served by the Denver regional office. (FR 2/2/07)
The development of hydrogen as an energy carrier offers the benefits of increased energy security and reduced environmental emissions compared with the present fossil fuel economy. However, there is not enough information on the potential environmental effects from increased emissions of hydrogen. Further, there is little known about the amount of criteria emissions avoided or gained through the production and use of hydrogen and the impact on the environment. The purpose of this project is to systematically identify and examine possible near and long-term ecological and environmental effects of the production of hydrogen from various energy sources (based on the DOE hydrogen production strategy) and the use of that hydrogen as a transportation fuel and for stationary power. DE-PS36-07GO97011 (GG 2/6/07)
7-7 Domestic Nuclear Detection Office/National Science Foundation Academic Research Initiative (ARI) (NSF)
In FY 2007, the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will invest, in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF), in leading edge, frontier research at academic institutions. This transformational research effort will be focused on detection systems, individual sensors or other research that is potentially relevant to the detection of nuclear weapons, special nuclear material, radiation dispersal devices and related threats. An individual researcher may not be named as a participant on more than one proposal submitted to this solicitation. NSF 07-545 (Posted 1/30/07)
EPA is pleased to announce the Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 Community Action for a Renewed Environment. CARE is a unique community-based, community-driven, multimedia demonstration program designed to help communities understand and reduce risks due to toxics and environmental pollutants from all sources. The CARE grant program will help communities form collaborative partnerships, set priorities, and identify and carry out projects to reduce risks through collaborative action at the local level.
Research Opportunity Awards are for scientists of demonstrated productivity and creativity seeking to explore new areas of experimental research. The Research Corporation has traditionally sought to assist those with meritorious ideas, especially projects that have high potential for the advancement of science. The goal is to seed a vigorous, competitive basic research program reestablishing the individual as a productive member of the scientific research community. The chair of each PH.D.-granting astronomy, chemistry, or physics department in the United States and Canada may nominate up to two tenured faculty members annually who are without major research funding.
The University of Kansas Center in Protein Structure and Function is preparing a revised application for a competitive renewal of their NIH-COBRE Center in Protein Structure and Function. Junior faculty are invited to apply for one of five positions that, if funded, provide research support, mentoring and access to core labs. Proposed projects should demonstrate a good fit to the COBRE theme and should make good use of the Core Labs (Protein Expression and Purification, Protein NMR, and X-ray crystallography.)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits R21 applications to further our understanding of mild and unilateral hearing loss in infants and young children. This includes research on prevention, better diagnostic methods, and treatments for these forms of hearing loss that are often overlooked or minimized. This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-07-083, which solicits applications under the R01 mechanism. PA-07-037 (NIHG 11/10/06)
7-12 Proteomics: Diabetes, Obesity, and Endocrine, Digestive, Kidney, Urologic, And Hematologic Diseases (R01) (NIH)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), solicits projects that advance research to identify and quantitate protein expression patterns, post-translational modification or proteins, and protein-protein interactions on cells, tissues, organ systems relevant to diabetes, obesity, endocrine and metabolic diseases, nutritional function and diseases of the alimentary tract, exocrine pancreas, liver, kidney, bladder and prostate and normal biological processes related to the function of these systems. The development and improvement of innovative proteomic technologies is also encouraged through their application to relevant biological questions related to the pathophysiology of endocrine glands, gastrointestinal tract, liver and kidney, bladder and prostate.
