This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits R01 grant applications that propose to use novel electrophysiological, molecular, genetic and/or imaging techniques in animals to examine the fundamental mechanisms by which regions in the mature and developing prefrontal cortex interact with other cortical and sub cortical systems to give rise to sophisticated behavior and complex mental function (e.g., cognition, emotion, reward, motivation). This FOA seeks applications employing sophisticated approaches that enable precise spatio-temporal manipulation of circuits to better understand how the prefrontal cortex influences the function of these brain networks and their development. It is expected that applications will use non-human primates where the anatomical and functional homology of the prefrontal cortex with humans has been relatively well established.

The goal of this FOA is to stimulate the establishment and maintenance of multi-investigator research centers whose mission will be to develop efficient, general, state-of-the-art methodologies for the design, synthesis, analysis, and handling of chemical diversity libraries. The CMLD Centers will continue to feature collaborations and team approaches that otherwise would not be established, including individuals from various subdisciplines within the field of chemistry and/or from cognate fields, that will develop novel enabling methodologies. The minimum requirements for a CMLD Center will be three research projects, three faculty-level participants (but not necessary one per project), and a library synthesis core. In order to promote overall diversity within the CMLD initiative, each applicant must propose at least one methods development research project that is not fundamentally organic synthesis.RFA-GM-08-007 (NIHG 10/19/07)
The College of Arts and Sciences will provide funding of $500 to 1,000 to host prominent speakers, presenters, or performers. Funding will supplement what each unit or units commit towards the speaker's visit. The speaker's activities will be fully determined by the host unit(s). Speakers' activities are expected to be listed in the unit's speaker/performance series and as part of the Arts and Sciences Diversity Series. Applications from all A&S units will be considered. When appropriate, partnerships with non-A&S units are encouraged. Speakers must fall under one or both of these categories: a) address issues of diversity or multiculturalism in general or in the context of a given discipline or group of disciplines; b) belong to a group that is underrepresented in that discipline, regardless of the topic of his or her talk. There will be a spring (April) application for speakers expected to come in the fall and a fall (November/December) application for speakers visiting in the spring.
