The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is announcing the continuation of the Superfund Basic Research and Training Program (referred to as the Superfund Basic Research Program SBRP). SBRP grants will support coordinated, multi-project, multi- and interdisciplinary research programs to address the mandate legislated under the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986. These mandates include the development of: 1) methods and technologies to detect hazardous substances in the environment; 2) advanced techniques for the detection, assessment, and evaluation of the effect on human health of hazardous substances; 3) methods to assess the risks to human health presented by hazardous substances; and 4) basic biological, chemical, and physical methods to reduce the amount and toxicity of hazardous substances. The objective for the SBRP is to develop a holistic research agenda for the protection of human health. This is accomplished by the establishment of interdisciplinary programs that link and integrate biomedical research with related engineering, hydrogeologic, and ecologic components within the context of unique scientific themes developed by the applicant. Applicants may submit only one application. RFA-ES-07-006 (NIHG 10/19/07)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is designed to support the multidisciplinary training of individuals with background in the basic, biomedical, clinical, and information sciences and/or engineering who are pursuing research that applies the development and application of nanotechnology to the prevention, detection, diagnosis, and/or treatment of cancer. This FOA will use Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards (Kirschstein-NRSAs) to support individual postdoctoral fellowships (F32) and senior fellowships (F33).

The American Association for the Advancement of Science manages and administers Science and Technology Policy Fellowships is six areas to provide the opportunity for accomplished scientists and engineers to participate in and contribute to the federal policymaking process while learning firsthand about the intersection of science and policy. The fellowships in congressional offices are funded by approximately 30 partner scientific and engineering societies. The fellowships in executive branch agencies are funded by the hosting offices.
AFSOR plans, coordinates, and executes the Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL) basic research program in response to technical guidance from AFRL and requirements of the Air Force; fosters, supports, conducts research within Air Force, university, and industry laboratories; and ensures transition of research results to support USAF needs. The focus of AFOSR is on research areas that offer significant and comprehensive benefits to our national warfighting and peacekeeping capabilities. These areas are organized and managed in three scientific directorates: Aerospace and Materials Sciences, Physical and Electronics, and Mathematics, Information and Life Sciences. AFOSR-BAA-2007-1 (GG 9/7/07)
This solicitation requests proposals to establish a Center to stimulate research and education at the interface of the mathematical and biological sciences. The Center will serve the biological and mathematical communities by providing mechanisms to foster synthetic, collaborative, cross-disciplinary studies. It will play a pivotal role by improving understanding and modeling of biological problems that can be gained only by using approached of mathematical, statistical and computational biology. The Center also will play a critical role in addressing national needs, including the area of plant and animal infectious disease modeling, and provide knowledge that will be useful to policy makers, government agencies, and society.

The purpose of the National Integrated Food Safety Initiative is to support food safety projects that demonstrate an integrated approach to solving problems in applied food safety research, education, or extension. Various models for integration of applied research, education, and extension will be considered for funding. Applications describing multi-state, multi-institutional, multidisciplinary, and multifunctional activities (and combinations thereof) are encouraged. Applicants are strongly encouraged to address at least two of the three functional areas of research, education, and extension, i.e., research and extension, research and education, or extension and education.

America's Historical and Cultural Organizations grants to support traveling or long-term museum exhibitions, library-based projects, interpretation of historic places or areas, interpretive Web sites, or other project formats that creatively engage audiences in exploring humanities ideas and questions. Planning grants can be used to plan, refine and develop the content and interpretive approach of a project. Applicants should have already conducted preliminary consultation with scholars to help shape the humanities content of the project and with other programming advisers appropriate to the project's format. 20080123-GE (GG 10/18/07)
The Puffin Foundation makes grants to emerging artists in the fields of art, music, theater, dance, photography, and literature whose works due to their genre and/or social philosophy might have difficulty being aired. Grants from the Puffin Foundation can only be awarded to permanent residents and citizens of the United States.
The Discovery Research K-12 (DR-K12) program seeks to enable significant advances in K-12 student and teacher learning of the STEM disciplines through research about, and development and implementation of, innovative resources, models, and technologies for use by students, teachers, and policy makers. This solicitation calls for proposals that are responsive to either the Contextual Challenges strand or the Frontier Challenges strand. The former invites proposals that address the more immediate and pressing challenges facing K-12 STEM education at the national level. The latter anticipates opportunities for the future and supports initiatives on the frontiers of knowledge which challenge existing assumptions about learning and teaching within or across STEM fields, envision needs of learners in 10 to 15 years, and consider new and innovative ways to reach learners. Within these strands, the program calls for full research and development projects, exploratory projects, and synthesis projects. NSF 08-502
This program provides graduate training for nutritionists to assume leadership roles in improving the nutritional status of women, infants, children, adolescents and families. The training will prepare program participants to become leaders in public health programs, clinical settings and/or academic settings. HRSA-08-014 (GG 10/4/07)
The Pan American Advanced Study Institute (PASI) Program, is a jointly supported initiative between the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation. Pan American Advanced Studies Institutes are short courses ranging in length from ten days to one month duration, involving lectures, demonstrations, research seminars and discussions at the advanced graduate and post-doctoral level. PASIs aim to disseminate advanced scientific and engineering knowledge and stimulate training and cooperation among researchers of the Americas in the mathematical, physical, and biological sciences, and in engineering fields.
