The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to support research that will advance the understanding of how the microbiome affects radiation injury and to develop medical countermeasures (MCMs) that target the microbiome to prevent or mitigate radiation injury.
Deadline: Feb. 9, 2022
This program supports proposals that: (1) build upon the foundation established by MBON, ATN and the US IOOS Regional Associations to work across sectors and disciplines towards an integrated, sustained marine life observing capability for the U.S. ocean, coasts and Great Lakes, from estuaries to the deep ocean; (2) advance technologies for efficient and/or automated collection of species and associated habitat observations; (3) enable open access to biodiversity data and information; and (4) utilize these observations, technologies, and data to address place-based management, conservation and restoration needs.
Deadline: Dec. 17, 2021
The purpose of the Funding Opportunity Announcement is to support research that employs systems biology approaches to human pathogens. The approach will generate and integrate large datasets into models that guide in vitro, in vivo and clinical studies, with the goals of predicting disease severity, predicting responses to vaccines and therapeutics, and identifying candidate targets for interventions.
Deadline: Dec. 14, 2021 (LOI); Jan. 14, 2022 (full application)
This U41 opportunity will fund centers to create interoperable open-source modules that can be combined into custom profiles for new exploratory and clinical neuromodulation studies in the peripheral nervous system, and for potential applicability in the central nervous system. The centers will disseminate the open-source neuromodulation resources broadly.
Amount: Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
Deadline: Dec. 12, 2021 (LOI); Jan. 12, 2022 (full application)
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support innovative, discovery research studies to better characterize early-life risk factors and elucidate underlying causal mechanisms through which these risk factors contribute to the development of obesity during infancy and early childhood. Studies should aim to understand biological mechanisms that mediate behavioral and/or metabolic risk for obesity development in young children and how risk may be modified by other contributors such as psychosocial, contextual and/or environmental factors. This FOA encourages multidisciplinary teams of scientists including, but not limited to, those with expertise in basic, translational, clinical and behavioral research.
Deadline: Feb. 8, 2022 (LOI); March 8, 2022 (full application)
This solicitation invites submission of collaborative proposals that tackle bold questions in biology and require an integrated approach to make substantive progress. Integrative biological research spans subdisciplines and incorporates cutting-edge methods, tools and concepts from each to produce groundbreaking biological discovery. The research should be synergistic and produce novel, holistic understanding of how biological systems function and interact across different scales of organization, e.g., from molecules to cells, tissues to organisms, species to ecosystems and the entire Earth.
Deadline: Jan. 25, 2022
The Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI) umbrella program seeks to enable funding opportunities that are flexible and responsive to the evolving and emerging needs in cyberinfrastructure (CI). This solicitation expands the CSSI program by adding a new project class: Transition to Sustainability. The program continues to emphasize integrated CI services, quantitative metrics with targets for delivery and usage of these services, and community creation.
Amount: $600,000 – $5,000,000
Deadline: Dec. 8, 2021
The NSF Directorate for Biological Sciences program for Biology Integration Institutes (BII) supports diverse and collaborative teams of researchers investigating questions that span multiple disciplines within and beyond biology. The goal is to stimulate creative integration of disparate fields using innovative experimental, theoretical and modeling approaches to discover underlying principles operating across multiple levels of life, from molecules to cells, organisms, species, ecosystems, biomes and the entire Earth. Submission to this opportunity requires early notification and coordination with the Office of Research. Interested faculty are advised to apply to the Major Integrative Proposal Planning (MIPP) Program from the Office of Research.
Deadline: Jan. 12, 2022
NSF seeks proposals to create an EHR Core Research (ECR) Resource Coordination Hub (ECR Hub) that will be an intellectual partner to the ECR:Core and the ECR:BCSER grantee communities and the NSF to enhance the overall influence and reach of ECR STEM education research investments. TheECR Hub will be expected to work collaboratively with NSF and the ECR:Core and ECR:BCSER communities to design, implement, and execute its activities and ensure the inclusion of diverse researchers from across the full range of our nation’s talent pool, of eligible institutions and organizations and of STEM education research and disciplines funded by ECR.
Deadline: December 1, 2021
The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to solicit and award Research and Development cooperative agreements for the development of multiple regional natural gas demand response pilot programs in collaboration with utilities, local distribution companies and public utility commissions.
