GENERAL

13-1 Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) (NSF)

Computation is accepted as the third pillar supporting innovation and discovery in science and engineering and is central to NSF's future vision of Cyberinfrastructure Framework for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CF21). Software is an integral part of the computation paradigm and a primary modality for realizing the CF21 vision. NSF is establishing a new program, Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2), with the overarching goal of transforming innovations in research and education into sustained software resources that are an integral part of the cyberinfrastructure. SI2 is a long-term investment focused on catalyzing new thinking, paradigms, and practices in using software to understand natural, human, and engineered systems. The SI2 program envisions three classes of awards: 1) Scientific Software Elements (SSE); 2) Scientific Software Integration (SSI); and 3) Scientific Software Innovation Institutes (S212). The FY 2010 SI2 competition will be limited to SSE and SSI awards. An individual may participate as Principal Investigator, co-Principal Investigator or other Senior Personnel in at most two full proposals in each annual competition. NSF 10-551 (GG 3/17/10)

13-7 Cosmochemistry (NASA)

The Cosmochemistry Program supports investigations of extraterrestrial materials that are aimed at understanding the geochemistry of the Solar System bodies (planets, satellites, including the Earth's Moon, and small Solar System bodies). The goal of this program is to support research projects that increase the understanding of the chemical origin of the Solar System and the processes by which its planets and small bodies have evolved to their present states. NASA is particularly interested in proposals for sample-focused research projects that closely support its missions for exploring the Solar System or that contribute to the development of future missions.

13-10 Adherence Studies in Adolescents with Chronic Kidney or Urologic Diseases, or Diabetes (R01) (NIH)

Adherence to a prescribed treatment regimen, including medications, devices and behavioral recommendations, can significantly impact morbidity and mortality for patients with chronic diseases, including chronic kidney or urologic disease and diabetes. When adherence to complex and seemingly rigid treatment regimens is poor, the results can be tragic. Adolescence can also be a particularly challenging time for adherence given the completing demands in an adolescent's life, the unique development changes, and rapidly changing set of responsibilities as they transition to adulthood. There are few studies in pediatrics beyond the HIV literature that address non-adherence. The purpose of the FOA is to support research to improve adherence in adolescents with chronic kidney or urologic diseases, or diabetes. RFA-DK-10-004 (NIHG 3/12/10)
