NIH Short Courses on Innovative Methodologies in the Behavioral and Social Sciences (R25): This FOA invites applications to develop, implement, evaluate and disseminate short courses in innovative methods for behavioral and social sciences research (BSSR). Methodological domains include but are not limited to experimental design, data collection, measurement, and data analysis and visualization. See full announcement for participating organizations. Deadlines: Letters of intent due June 3; Applications due July 3.
NIH Substance Use Disorders and Molecular Regulation of Brain Energy Utilization: The purpose of this FOA is to support projects investigating the interplay between molecular regulation of brain energy utilization and brain and/or behavioral changes resulting from chronic exposure to abused substances.
– R21 Deadline: August 15
– R01 Deadline: August 15
HHS Campus Suicide Prevention Grant: This program is designed to assist colleges and universities build a foundation for their efforts to prevent suicide attempts and completions and to enhance services for students with mental and substance use disorders that put them at risk for suicide and suicide attempts. Deadline: June 10.
HHS Child Welfare Training: The National Child Welfare Workforce Institute: The purpose of this FOA is to fund a National Child Welfare Institute that will build the capacity of the child welfare workforce to effectively respond to the complex needs of the children and families in order to foster social and emotional well-being and promote healthy and positive functioning. This targeted 5-year cooperative agreement will create a national center of excellence to address workforce development and leadership capacity building in service of systems change in child welfare agencies. Deadline: July 7.
DOE Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute: The goal of this FOA is to establish a Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute to support U.S. prosperity and security; and that will contribute to the creation of the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation. The primary goals of the Institute are to revitalize American manufacturing and support domestic manufacturing competitiveness by driving innovation, and developing and accelerating adoption of next generation manufacturing technologies that will increase energy productivity, improve product quality, reduce cost, waste or pollution leading to increased domestic production capacity, jobs for American workers and regional economic development. The Institute established through this FOA will focus on wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors for power electronic devices. Letter of Intent due July 11; Full application due August 29
DOE Mathematical and Statistical Methodologies for DOE Data-Centric Science at Scale (see attached) The Advanced Scientific Computing Research program invites applications for basic research in novel mathematical and statistical methods, models, and tools for the representation, analysis, and understanding of DOE data-centric science at scale. In particular, this FOA is seeking long-term research that will impact DOE data-centric science challenges related to orders of magnitude improvement in modeling and simulation capabilities on next-generation computer architectures and next-generation science facilities producing dramatic increases in data velocity, volume, and complexity. Pre-application due June 3; Invited full application due July 9
DOD-CDMRP Breast Cancer Research Program: BCRP seeks to accelerate high-impact research with clinical relevance, encourage innovation and stimulate creativity, facilitate multidisciplinary collaborations, and support future breast cancer leaders. Funding opportunities have been released for the Postdoctoral Fellowship Award, Breakthrough Award, Innovator Award, and Era of Hope Scholar Award. Deadlines vary by program.
DOD-DARPA Rapid Threat Assessment: DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals to develop new high-throughput methods and tools that will elucidate in thirty days the molecular mechanism by which threat agents, drugs, biologics or chemicals affect the function of biological cells. Deadline: Whitepaper due June 6; Application due July 23.
DOD-DTRA Fundamental Research to Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction: DTRA seeks to identify, adopt, and adapt emerging, existing and revolutionary sciences that may demonstrate high payoff potential to Counter-WMD (C-WMD) threats. This announcement solicits white papers for long-term challenges in specific fundamental areas of research that offer a significant contribution to the current body of knowledge, understanding of phenomena and observable facts, significantly advance revolutionary technology, new concepts for technology application, and may have impact on future C-WMD capabilities. Deadline: Continuous through September 30, 2014.
USDA-NIFA Supplemental and Alternative Crops Competitive Grants Program: The goal of the SACC program is to significantly increase crop production and/or acreage by developing and testing superior germplasm, improving methods of planting, cultivation, and harvesting, and transferring new knowledge to producers (via Extension) as soon as practicable. Deadline: June 14.
If interested in submitting a Limited Submission Proposal please contact Kristin Sarver at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Limited Submission: NIH Developing and Improving Institutional Animal Resources (G20) This FOA encourages applications that propose to renovate, repair, or improve individual animal resources. The major objective of this program is to upgrade animal facilities to support the conduct of biomedical and/or behavioral research. Support can be requested to alter and renovate the animal facilities, as well as to improve the animal care equipment in the facility. For this opportunity, Purdue may submit only one application.
Internal deadline: Contact OVPRlimited@purdue.edu by May 29
Sponsor deadline: August 2
Limited Submission: HHS-CDC Grants for Injury Control Research Centers: These centers will conduct high quality research and… more » help translate scientific discoveries into practice for the prevention and control of fatal and nonfatal injuries, violence, and related disabilities. ICRCs are expected to have a high caliber of scientific and technical competency, be forward-looking, provide strong leadership, and collaborate with stakeholders and community partners (including state and local health agencies and non-profit, community and non-governmental organizations) in the development and delivery of relevant interventions to improve the prevention and control of injuries and/or violence.
Internal deadline: Contact OVPRlimited@purdue.edu by June 10
Sponsor deadline: LOI – September 6; Application – November 4
DOD Request for Information: Lightweight and Modern Metals Manufacturing Innovation (LM3I) Proposed Institute: The proposed institute is part of a major, new initiative focused on strengthening the innovation, performance, competitiveness, and job-creating power of U.S. manufacturing called the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation. The focus of the LM3I Institute will be on the integrated design and manufacturing of lightweight components and structures for commercial and defense applications, and the verification of those designs through pilot production and validation through experimental testing. At this time, the ONR requests information from industry, academia, and nonprofit organizations associated with the assumptions and plans for the proposed LM3I Institute. Deadline: June 3
