Proposals for research on disease systems of public health concern to developing countries are strongly encouraged. NSF 07-513
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and the National Human Genome Research Initiate (NHGRI) invite applications to support multi-investigator teams to develop new technologies to enable high sensitivity molecular detection in living cells. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to encourage and facilitate novel, high-risk strategies to create fundamentally new probes with enhanced spectral characteristics with the goal of improving detection schemes by a factor of 10 to 100. Parallel improvements in probe targeting, cellular delivery, and signal detection are also encouraged. The ultimate goal will be to develop probes and delivery strategies that can be used routinely to achieve single molecule sensitivity for imaging dynamic processes within living cells.

39-11 Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Programs Phase I Solicitation FY-2008 (SBIR/STTR) (NSF)
The SBIR/STTR Programs stimulate technological innovation in the private sector by strengthening the role of small business concerns in meeting Federal research and development needs, increasing the commercial application of federally supported research results, and fostering and encouraging participation by socially and economically disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses. The significant difference between the SBIR and STTR programs is that STTR requires researchers at universities and other research institutions to play a significant intellectual role in the conduct of each STTR project. These university-based researchers, by joining forces with a small company, can spin-off their commercially promising ideas while they remain primarily employed at the research institution. Topics of interest are Bio & Environmental Technologies (BE); Components & Systems (CS); and Software & Services (SS). NSF 07-586 (Posted 9/4/07)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits research project grant (RO1) applications focused on conducting efficacy and effectiveness trials of child abuse and neglect interventions. Specifically, this FOA solicits grant applications that include various levels of interventions. For those interventions that need preliminary research, applicants should consider additional mechanisms, which are used to establish efficacy, including the R21 and R34, as appropriate. However, given the public health need for children and families who experience the negative effects of child abuse and neglect, interventions in which preliminary developmental/exploratory work has already been undertaken, and pilot studies, or in some cases efficacy trials, have demonstrated positive change are strongly encouraged for RO1 grant applications under this FOA. Of particular interest is the development of large scale trials designed to target either or both the victims or perpetrators of child abuse and neglect, including preventive interventions.
