The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) solicits grant applications for recently established interdisciplinary research training programs that integrate the biomedical sciences with the physical sciences and/or engineering. By fostering these interdisciplinary training programs in their critical early years, we expect to develop highly effective interdisciplinary curricula, coursework and laboratory research. It is anticipated that this will lead to an increase in the number of interdisciplinary researchers working at the intersection of these disciplines and a transformation of institutional programs to support interdisciplinary training. Applicant institutions, whether they are applying as a single entity or representing a multi-institutional consortium, may submit only one application in response to this RFA.

The Centers of Excellence in Genomic Sciences (CEGS) program establishes academic Centers for advanced genome research. Each CEGS grant supports a multi-investigator, interdisciplinary team to develop innovative genomic approaches to address a particular biological problem. A CEGS project will address a critical issue in genomic science, proposing a solution that would be a very substantial advance. Thus, the research conducted at these Centers will entail substantial risk, balanced by outstanding scientific and management plans and very high potential payoff. A CEGS will focus on the development of novel technological or computational methods for the production or analysis of comprehensive data sets, or on a particular genome-scale biological problem, or on other ways to develop and use genomic approaches for understanding biological systems.

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. In all cases and unless special circumstances emerge, it is expected that speakers have time assigned to meet with undergraduate and/or graduate students. The completed application (not to exceed 2 pages) should be sent electronically in a single file to email@example.com, specifying the following: 1) Host name(s), affiliated department(s), and contact information; 2) Name, affiliation and area of invited speaker; 3) Target date for visit; 4) Short description of speaker's accomplishments, include CV and/or URL; 5) Short description of the diversity/multicultural dimension of the speaker; 6) Short description of activities, including importance of visit and benefit to other units; 7) Estimated budget, including other funding sources.
