Work performed through these proposals will also help to further objectives set forth in the FAA flight plan and the next generation air transportation system integrated plan. FAA-06-01 (GG 12/3/08)
The Pan-American Advanced Study Institutes (PASI) Program is a jointly supported initiative between the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). 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. Whenever feasible, an interdisciplinary approach is recommended. NSF 03-506 (GG 11/25/08)
The NIH Director's New Innovator Awards Program was created in 2007 to support a small number of new investigators of exceptional creativity who propose bold and highly innovative new research approaches that have the potential to produce a major impact on broad, important problems in biomedical and behavioral research. The New Innovator Awards complement ongoing efforts by NIH and its Institutes and Centers to fund new investigators through R01 grants, which continue to be the major source of NIH support for new investigators. The purpose of this FOA is to solicit pre-applications for the NIH Director's New Innovator Award. Pre-applications are a necessary first step in applying for a 2009 New Innovator Award. Pre-applications will be evaluated by a group of external reviewers. Those investigators whose submissions are judged to be the most outstanding will be notified of the opportunity to submit full (DP2) applications. RFA-RM-09-013. (GG 10/23/08)
The Newberry Library's fellowships support humanities research in their wide-ranging and rich collections which document the civilizations of Western Europe and the Americas. They promise the joys of concentrated research; conversations with a lively interdisciplinary community of researchers; individual consultations on your research with staff librarians and scholars; and an array of scholarly and public programs to enjoy. Ph.D. candidates and scholars with a doctorate are eligible for short-term fellowships. Most short-term fellowships are for one month, and most are restricted to scholars who live and work outside the Chicago area. Long-term fellowships support research and writing by scholars with a doctorate. Their purpose is to help fellows develop or complete larger-scale studies that draw on the collections, and to foster intellectual exchange among fellows and the Library community.
47-6 Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program-Field Initiated (FI) Projects (ED)
The purpose of the FI Projects program is to develop methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technology that maximize the full inclusion and integration into society, employment, independent living, family support, and economic and social self-sufficiency of individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the most severe disabilities. The National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) makes two types of awards under the FI Projects program: Research grants and development grants. ED-GRANTS-112808002 (GG 11/28/08)
47-7 Short Courses on Mathematical, Statistical, and Computational Tools for Studying Biological Systems (R25) (NIH)
This FOA issued by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Mental Health encourages applications for Research Education Grants (R25) from institutions and organizations to conduct workshops and short courses to improve integration of mathematical, statistical, and computational approaches into biological and/or behavioral research. Support will be limited to activities that reach a wide audience of researchers. The program announcement is NOT intended for university course or curriculum development. PA-09-002 (NIHG 10/16/08)
National Library of Medicine (NLM) Grants for Scholarly Works in Biomedicine and Health are awarded for the preparation of book-length manuscripts and other scholarly works of value to U.S. health professionals, public health officials, biomedical researchers and historians of the health sciences. PAR-09-030 (GG 12/4/08)
47-9 Collaborative Research in Integrative Cancer Biology and the Tumor Microenvironment (U01) (NIH)
With this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) encourages new collaborative projects between investigators associated with the Integrative Cancer Biology Program (ICBP) or Tumor Microenvironment Network (TMEN) and researchers who are not involved with the program with which they propose to collaborate. This FOA is designed to facilitate new projects in integrative cancer biology and/or tumor microenvironment research and to extend current research conducted in the ICBP and TMEN programs through collaborations with a broader research community. PAR-09-026 (NIHG 11/14/08)
47-10 Innovative Approaches to Target Identification and Assay Development for Fungal Diagnosis (R21/R33) (NIH)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), titled Innovative Approaches to Target Identification and Assay Development for Fungal Diagnosis, and issued by the NIAID, National Institutes of Health, solicits applications to foster collaborative efforts between the mycology research community and the innovative technology sector to develop novel clinical diagnostic targets and subsequent assays for invasive aspergillosis (IA) and other invasive fungal diseases common to immunocompromised or immunosuppressed patients. This FOA will utilize the NIH R21/R33 Phased Innovation Award to support innovative exploratory and developmental research. Under the R21 phase, research is initiated and carried out through a milestone-driven process to establish the feasibility of new diagnostics, diagnostic strategies and support technologies. The R33 phase then provides the support required to translate the innovation discoveries into the preclinical/clinical development pipeline. RFA-AI-08-055 (NIHG 9/26/08)
47-11 Human, Social, Cultural and Behavioral Sciences Basic Research, Applied Research and Advanced Technology (ONR)
Science and technology investment in human, social, cultural and behavioral (HSCB) sciences is focused on building capability through the development of a knowledge base, building models, and creating training capacity in order to understand, predict, and shape human behavior cross-culturally. The need to understand the motivations and influences underlying adversarial behavior, behavior of contested populations, and populations with whom US Forces have not yet interacted, how they vary cross-culturally, and what is innately human behavior that extends across cultural boundaries is required at all levels of military operations. An understanding of these motivations and influences will be gleaned from inter- and multi-disciplinary approaches that draw on approaches and methods from a wide range of social and human/behavioral sciences including (but not exclusively) anthropology, sociology, linguistics, political science, theology, economics, history, criminology, psychology, cognitive sciences, genetics, mathematics, statistics and neuroscience. Understanding how these influences are exerted, through media, community, schools, famillial ties, etc. is important. ONRBAA08-025 (GG 12/8/08)
This FOA issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institutes of Health, solicits Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/organizations that propose to investigate brain processes in humans underlying how aversive events control behavior in order to stimulate a program of clinical neuroscience research on negative reinforcement/avoidance learning. On the basis of pre-clinical studies, negative reinforcement has re-emerged as a contributing factor in the basic processes of substance abuse. The range of processes engaged by the human brain to avoid aversive outcomes are much less well understood than that of brain processes engaged by positive outcomes. Applications for this FOA are expected to propose hypotheses-testing studies regarding the brain regions or processes in humans that underlie avoidance learning including behaviors and cognitive strategies maintained by negative reinforcement. This FOA will utilize the National Institutes of Health (NIH) research project grant R01 granting mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scope, RFA-DA-09-009, that solicits applications under the R21 grant mechanism. RFA-DA-09-008 (NIHG 11/7/08)
DLS supports fundamental research that increases our understanding of cognitive, linguistic, social, cultural, and biological processes related to children's and adolescents' development and learning. Research supported by this program will add to our basic knowledge of how people learn and the underlying developmental processes that support learning, with the objective of leading to better educated children and adolescents who grow up to take productive roles as workers and as citizens.
