34-1 Advanced Genomic Data Analysis and Visualization Methods for the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Data (R21) (NIH)
This NCI-sponsored funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is a request for grant applications that describe exploratory projects aimed at the development of highly innovative and novel advanced genomic data analysis methods and visualization technologies. This FOA is a component of The Cancer Genome Atlas Pilot Project, which tests the technical feasibility and clinical relevance of conducting a systematic, comprehensive large-scale analysis of genomic alterations found in human cancers. The purpose is to stimulate the development of new and improved computational and statistical tools for integrative analysis of the TCGA data sets covering alterations in the cancer genome, epigenome, and/or transcriptome (e.g., somatic mutations, changes in DNA segment copy number, translocations, loss of heterozygosity, epigenomic modifications, and gene expression profiles from multiple platforms) and linked pathological/clinical information. Of particular interest is the development of tools and methods for analyzing, mining, and visualizing TCGA data to reveal previously unknown associations between genomic alterations, pathways, and cancer.

The program seeks to broaden the participation of girls and women in all fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education by supporting research, the diffusion of research-based innovations, and extension services in education that will lead to a larger and more diverse domestic science and engineering workforce. Typical projects will contribute to the knowledge base addressing gender-related differences in learning and in the educational experiences that affect student interest, performance, and choice of careers; how pedagogical approaches and teaching styles, curriculum, student services, and institutional culture contribute to causing or closing gender gaps that persist in certain fields. Projects will communicate and apply findings, evaluation results, and proven good practices and products to a wider community. The program does not currently fund intervention or education projects that directly serve students as their primary purpose. NSF 07-578 (Posted 7/26/07)
The K-State Arthropod Genomics Center invites research proposals from scientists at Kansas State University for seed grants ranging up to $60,000/year for two years. The Arthropod Genomics Center supports arthropod genomics research at K-State by funding research that will lead to the generation of preliminary data for extramural grant proposals involving arthropod genomics, including the development or use of tools (such as libraries and microarrays) for genome-based analysis of gene expression. Priority for funding will be given to those applications that show promise of attracting extramural funding. Proposals involving genomic studies primarily of non-arthropod species will not be considered. These grants may fund research by new and established K-State faculty. Funding for these seed grants has been made possible through support from K-State Targeted Excellence. For more information on the Arthropod Genomics Center, potential applicants are invited to visit http://www.ksu.edu/agc.
This notice announces the availability of funds and solicits applications from eligible entities and non-profit organizations to provide environmental job training projects that will facilitate the assessment, remediation, or preparation of brownfield sites.

The Kansas NASA EPSCoR Program (KNEP) is preparing to award Research Infrastructure Development (RID) grants to Kansas investigators. Two award types are available. Seed/Research Initiation (SRI) grants assist investigators in starting research projects having a high probability for sustained growth and value. Obviously, the grant should address specific problems of interest to NASA and Kansas. Successful SRI grants lead to productive collaborations, joint publications, and additional (non-EPSCoR) grant awards. Partnership Development Travel (PDT) grants are intended to facilitate development of beneficial NASA or industrial collaborations. A typical PDT grant allows a faculty member and student to travel to a NASA center or relevant industry location to initiate, develop, and formalize a meaningful professional relationship with a NASA (or industry) researcher during the trips. Ideally the faculty member, student, and host become co-participants in some research activity. The PDT award should lead to sustained collaboration, joint publications, and future grant submissions.
Microsoft Research is seeking nominees who are advancing computing research in novel directions with the potential for high impact and who demonstrate the likelihood of becoming thought leaders of the field. This fellowship is intended to identify, recognize, and support exceptional new faculty members engaged in innovative computing research. Nominees must be new faculty members in the first, second, or third year of their first faculty appointment as of the deadline of the application. The nominee's most recent Ph.D. degree must have been obtained within the last six years. No more that one nomination from a university will be accepted.
The Office of Nuclear Physics (NP), within the Office of Science (SC) of the Department of Energy (DOE), announces its continuing interest in receiving NEW applications for support of research in Nuclear Physics. The purpose of this solicitation is to request that all new applications for the Office of Nuclear Physics be submitted in response to this notice instead of the Annual Notice - Continuing Solicitation for all Office of Science Programs. This does not change the process for renewal and supplemental applications. All renewal and supplemental applications should still be submitted in response to the Annual Notice - Submission of Renewal and Supplemental Applications for Office of Science Grants.DE-PS02-07ER07-31 (GG 8/30/07)
Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) Awards are grants that stimulate competitive extramural research funding for junior faculty members early in their careers. The awards are to be used to generate adequate preliminary data or to strengthen existing preliminary data to be able to submit competitive NIH R01 applications. Research related to cancer will be considered for the COBRE Awards. In general, non-tenured, tenure track faculty within the first three years of their initial appointment at KU, KUMC, KSU, WSU, and ESU who have never been a principal investigator of an RO1 research grant from the National Institutes of Health are eligible.
The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to support high impact, innovative exploratory/developmental investigations to determine the mechanisms of and risk factors associated with IgE-mediated food allergy and related co-morbid conditions, focusing on ex vivo studies with human specimens and on studies with current or new animal models of food allergy. Investigations who have no prior history of receiving independent NIH funding in food allergy research, or have no history of receiving such funding after January, 2003, are encouraged to apply to this FOA.
