Advances in genomics, quantitative structural biology, and modeling of complex systems have created opportunities for an exciting research career at the interface between the physical/computational sciences and the biological sciences. Tackling key problems in biology will require scientists trained in areas such as chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, computer sciences, and engineering. Recognizing the vital role such cross-trained scientists will play in furthering biomedical science, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) has developed the Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI). These grants provide bridging support to foster the early career development of researchers with backgrounds in the physical/computational sciences whose work addresses biological questions and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research. A degree-granting institution--including its medical school, graduate schools, and all affiliated hospitals and research institutes-- may nominate up to three candidates for the award. Institutions that nominate at least one African-American, Hispanic, or Native American candidate may nominate up to four total candidates.
The Center for Engagement and Community Development solicits proposals for projects that will lead to enhanced engagement in teaching, research, and/or outreach. These grants are intended to provide seed money to faculty who would like to incorporate engagement into their instructional, research, and/or outreach programs. Activities supported by this program should lead to a larger project concept and the submission of a proposal for external funding.
The Center on Aging is pleased to announce the availability of a competitive faculty mini-grant program for Summer 2006. The intent of this opportunity is to encourage greater focus on aging-related issues in both instruction and research and to strengthen efforts to obtain extramural support. Proposals are invited for the development of an aging-related research proposal or exploratory gerontological research supporting the submission of a future research proposal. Priority is given to collaborative efforts. Support is also available for the modification of an existing course or the development of a new course that enhances the gerontology curricula. Preference will be given to courses offered in an online format.
The Kansas Crop Improvement Association Research Support Committee is now seeking proposals for research projects. Commitments to continuing projects will be given first consideration. Priority areas established by the KCIA Research Support Committee are: 1) Determining the benefits of certified or professionally prepared seed versus farmer-saved or bin-run seed; 2) Evaluation of characteristics of specific varieties for potential end-use value and marketing; 3) Improved variety development; 4) Physical factors affecting seed quality; 5) Risks and benefits of certified seed in various identity preserved grain production systems; 6) Factors influencing seed selection and purchasing decisions of farmers; 7) Seed production strategies for improved efficiency and returns.
The Informal Science Education (ISE) program invests in projects that develop and implement informal learning experiences designed to increase interest, engagement, and understanding of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by individuals of all ages and backgrounds, as well as projects that advance the theory and practice of informal science education. Projects may target either public audiences or professionals whose work directly affects informal STEM learning. ISE projects are expected to demonstrate strategic impact, collaboration, and innovation. An institution or organization may serve as lead in no more than the following numbers of proposals under ISE consideration at the same time: three Preliminary Proposals and three Full Proposals for Project Grants; three proposals in total for Planning Grants and/or Conference, Symposia, and Workshop Grants.
