W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program

POSTED: March 29, 2017 at 9:38 am

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: May 15, 2017
Preliminary Proposal: June 15, 2017
Full Proposal: November 1, 2017
Annual Budget: Research grants should not exceed $1 million.
Notes/Comments: Send your one-page program concept to: Scott Mangieri at mangieri@udel.edu. For more information, call 302-831-8638

Abstract:


The W.M. Keck Foundation makes grants in support of science and engineering research that is distinctive and novel in its approach. Funding is awarded for projects in science and engineering research that:
• Focus on important and emerging areas of research
• Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies
• Are innovative, distinctive and interdisciplinary
• Demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches or challenge the prevailing paradigm
• Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible, or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem
• Does not focus on clinical or translational research, treatment trials, or research for the sole purpose of drug development
• Fall outside the mission of public funding agencies
• Demonstrate that private philanthropy generally, and the W. M. Keck Foundation in particular, is essential to the project’s success.

It is critical that your idea not be eligible for funding by NSF and NIH. “High Risk” is the mantra of the Keck Foundation. “High-risk” comprises a number of factors, including questions that push the edge of the field, present unconventional approaches to intractable problems, or challenge the prevailing paradigm. The first step in the process is for UD to gather all ideas and submit them as a group to the Keck Foundation. Then, the Foundation will discuss all of the ideas with college deans and/or the vice provost for research to determine the best proposal to move forward.

Single-page concept papers should include:
• An overview of the research proposed emphasizing any unique aspects and pilot studies
• A brief description of the key personnel and methodologies
• A brief justification of the need for Keck support
• An estimated budget broken down by major areas, e.g. personnel, equipment, consumable supplies, etc. (Budgets can be rough approximations at this stage.) You are free to add other details such as background to put the research into perspective, description of the institution’s prominence in the field, etc. if there is room. Avoid illustrations in these single-pagers. The researchers will need all the room for text. If a reference is absolutely necessary, abbreviate it as (Science, 323, 45, ‘11). Please see the Keck website for further information, including examples of funded projects http://www.wmkeck.org/grant-programs/research

Update regarding NSF Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs:  Establishing Spokes to Advance Big Data Applications call for internal white papers

 

UD Internal Deadline Extended:  July 17, 2017

All internal white papers should include a Letter of Collaboration from the South Hub.

As stated in the program solicitation NSF 17-546, all proposals requires that PIs obtain Letters of Collaboration from the Big Data Hub associated with the PI’s location.  The BD Hubs have worked together to streamline a process for submitting required Letter of Collaboration requests. Teams should fill out the form at the South’s Hub prior to submitting a white paper to UD.

The South’s Hub deadline for Letters of Collaboration is June 19.

The South Hub’s submission form is available HERE.

Hub submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Hub reviews will focus on “fit and feasibility.” That is, the Hub will consider how a given project fits or aligns with the thematic or priority areas of interest in its region, and how feasible the proposed coordination with the Hub is based on availability of resources. NSF priority areas listed in the Solicitation are welcome, but not limiting in the scope of projects that will be considered. In other words, all current Hub Spoke and Ring areas and suggestions for projects in new areas will also be welcome.

Additional details about the Letter of Collaboration submission process are available HERE. Please let the Hub know if you have any questions by emailing info@southbdhub.org.

Abstract:

The purpose of this FOA is to solicit applications for the Validation of Pediatric Patient Reported Outcomes in Chronic Diseases (PEPR) Consortium. The NIAMS, on behalf of the National Institutes of Health, intends to capitalize on recent advances in the science of Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) to measure the patient experience in clinical care and research in children with a variety of chronic diseases and conditions (e.g., asthma, juvenile arthritis, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, obesity and overweight, chronic kidney disease, inflammatory bowel disease, sickle cell disease, malnutrition, developmental disabilities including attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy and mental illnesses) using the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) tools and approaches coupled with detailed clinical phenotyping and/or biospecimen collection in well-characterized human cohorts. The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) is a system of highly reliable, precise measures of patient–reported health status for physical, mental, and social well–being. PROMIS tools measure what patients are able to do and how they feel by asking questions. PROMIS’ measures can be used as primary or secondary endpoints in clinical studies of the effectiveness of treatment.

Basic Research to Enable Agricultural Development (BREAD)

POSTED: September 22, 2015 at 4:03 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: February 23, 2015
Full Proposal: April 15, 2015
Annual Budget: $200,000-$400,000 for 3 years

Abstract:

NSF and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) are partnering to support a new research program to be administered by NSF. The objective of the BREAD Program is to support innovative basic scientific research designed to address key constraints to smallholder agriculture in the developing world. A significant distinction between BREAD and other NSF programs is that proposals to BREAD must make a clear and well-defined connection between the outcomes of the proposed basic research and its direct relevance and potential application to agriculture in the developing world. The BREAD Program takes the activities of the Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) to the next level by supporting a broader range of scientific research and by enabling funding to be allocated to international collaborators through subawards.

The BREAD Program’s focus is on novel, transformative basic research at the proof-of-concept stage rather than its application or development. Especially encouraged are original proposals that address major constraints to the productivity of crops important to smallholder farmers, or on the development of novel and efficient production practices. Although the BREAD Program places an initial emphasis on crop improvement, it will also consider innovative basic research proposals from scientists in all fields of research in the biological and physical sciences and engineering as long as the proposed research is consistent with the BREAD Program objectives. Proposals are also expected to address project outcomes in the context of broader societal impacts, and as appropriate to the research proposed, engage international partners in scientific collaborations.

National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) Program

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: February 27, 2015
Full Proposal: June 24, 2015
Letter of Intent: May 20, 2015
Annual Budget: $3,000,000 for 5 years

Abstract:

The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is designed to encourage the development of bold, new, potentially transformative, and scalable models for STEM graduate training that ensure that graduate students develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. The NRT program initially has one priority research theme – Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (DESE); in addition, proposals are encouraged on any other crosscutting, interdisciplinary theme. In either case, proposals should identify the alignment of project research themes with national research priorities and the need for innovative approaches to train graduate students in those areas. NRT projects should develop evidence-based, sustainable approaches and practices that substantially improve STEM graduate education for NRT trainees and for STEM graduate students broadly at an institution. NRT emphasizes the development of competencies for both research and research-related careers. Strategic collaborations with the private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government agencies, museums, and academic partners that enhance research quality and impacts and that facilitate development of technical and transferrable professional skills are encouraged. Creation of sustainable programmatic capacity at institutions is an expected outcome. Proposals accordingly are expected to describe how institutions will support the continuation and institutional-level scaling of effective training elements after award closure.

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: November 14, 2014
Preliminary Proposal: December 15, 2014

Annual Budget: Research grants range from $500,000 to $5 million, and are typically $1 million or less. Budget must include near 1:1 matching – matching can include F&A as well as staff time.

Abstract:

The W.M. Keck Foundation makes grants in support of science and engineering research that is distinctive and novel in its approach.
Funding is awarded for projects in science and engineering research that:
• Focus on important and emerging areas of research
• Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies
• Are innovative, distinctive and interdisciplinary
• Demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches, or by challenging the prevailing paradigm
• Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem
• Fall outside the mission of public funding agencies
• Demonstrate that private philanthropy generally, and the W. M. Keck Foundation in particular, is essential to the project’s success
It is very important that your idea not be eligible for funding by NSF and NIH. “High Risk” is the mantra of the Keck Foundation – “High-risk” comprises a number of factors, including questions that push the edge of the field, present unconventional approaches to intractable problems, or challenge the prevailing paradigm. The first step in the process is for UD to gather all ideas and submit them as a group to the Keck Foundation. Then, the Foundation will discuss all of the ideas with the Provost of the University to determine the best proposal to move forward.

Single-paged concept papers should include:
• an overview of the research proposed emphasizing any unique aspects and pilot studies;
• a brief description of the key personnel and methodologies;
• a brief justification of the need for Keck support;
• an estimated budget broken down, if possible, by major areas, e.g., personnel, equipment, consumable supplies, etc. (Budgets can be rough approximations at this stage.)
You are free to add other details (e.g., background to put the research into perspective, description of the institution’s prominence in the field, etc.) if there’s room. Avoid illustrations in these single-pagers. The researchers will need all the room for text. If a reference is absolutely necessary, abbreviate it as (Science, 323, 45, ‘11).

Further information is available at: http://www.wmkeck.org/grant-programs/science-engineering.html. Samples of recent grants can be found at: http://www.wmkeck.org/grant-programs/science-engineering/science-and-engineering-grant-abstracts.html

Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM)

POSTED: September 22, 2015 at 3:19 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: November 17, 2014
Full Proposal: February 17, 2015
Annual Budget: $3 million for 5 years

Abstract:

Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM) funds research projects that identify factors that are efficacious in the formation of ethical STEM researchers in all the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports. CCE STEM solicits proposals for research that explores the following: ‘What constitutes ethical STEM research and practice? Which cultural and institutional contexts promote ethical STEM research and practice and why?’ Factors one might consider include: honor codes, professional ethics codes and licensing requirements, an ethic of service and/or service learning, life-long learning requirements, curricula or memberships in organizations (e.g. Engineers without Borders) that stress social responsibility and humanitarian goals, institutions that serve under-represented groups, institutions where academic and research integrity are cultivated at multiple levels, institutions that cultivate ethics across the curriculum, or programs that promote group work, or do not grade. Do certain labs have a ‘culture of academic integrity’? What practices contribute to the establishment and maintenance of ethical cultures and how can these practices be transferred, extended to, and integrated into other research and learning settings?

Successful proposals will include a comparative dimension, either between or within institutional settings that differ along these or other factors.

CCE STEM research projects will use basic research to produce knowledge about what constitutes responsible or irresponsible, just or unjust scientific practices and sociotechnical systems, and how to best instill students with this knowledge.

Great Rivers Affiliate Undergraduate Student Research Program

POSTED: September 22, 2015 at 3:16 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: July 25, 2014
Full Proposal: September 17, 2014
Annual Budget: $20,000 per year (Max 2 years)

Abstract:

The purpose of this undergraduate research training program is to encourage promising students from all disciplines, including women and members of minority groups underrepresented in the sciences, to consider research careers while supporting the highest quality scientific investigation broadly related to cardiovascular disease and stroke. *Note: this is an institutional award. Individual students do not apply to the AHA for this award.

Science Focus Funding is available for research broadly related to cardiovascular function and disease, stroke, or to related clinical, basic science, and public health problems, including multidisciplinary efforts. The laboratory sponsor and institution are responsible for disclosing  the nature of research and activities taking place in the laboratory where the student will be conducting research, and the safety or health-hazards/risks which are known or reasonably likely to be encountered.  Students are responsible for learning and following
appropriate safety procedures in the laboratory. Students will not receive college credit for their summer research  activities.  Therefore,  participation in the program will not appear on an official transcript from the institution where the student is assigned.

 

Target Audience
To be eligible for this program, undergraduate students should be currently classified at the junior or senior academic status at the time of award activation.  Students must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate degree program, at the time of application, in either a four-year college or university, or a two-year institution with plans to transfer to a four-year college or university by the fall semester immediately following the summer program. This is an institutional award to qualified research institutions, within the affiliate’s geographic boundaries, that can offer a meaningful research experience to undergraduate students.The extent to which the focus of the projects offered to students is related to CVD and/or stroke is an important factor that will be considered.

Faculty Scholars Program

POSTED: September 22, 2015 at 3:13 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: September 15, 2014
Letter of Intent: November 3, 2014
Annual Budget: The award supports 50% of a Scholar’s salary plus benefits for three years, up to the NIH cap, with 10% institutional costs for the salary and benefits, plus $5000 each year for limited project support and travel (no indirect costs are provided for these items).

Abstract:

Applicants must be junior faculty members holding at least a 60% appointment in a tenure series at a university or non-profit research institute in the U.S. Priority will be given to applicants who have not yet been considered for tenure, who have not received a comparable career development award, and whose work will have an impact on public policy, biomedical research, or clinical practice.

The goal of the Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is to nurture the next generation of leading bioethics researchers at a crucial stage in their academic careers, when they have started a tenure-track faculty appointment, need protected time to establish a long-term, sustainable research program, and would benefit from mentoring from senior bioethics scholars and joining a community of other bioethics researchers.

1. The proposed project. Does it address an important bioethics issue in an innovative way? Does the application show how the project will make a significant advance beyond what has already been published on the topic? Is the applicant thinking about the conceptual and normative ethical issues regarding the topic in a rigorous and creative way?

We commonly receive proposals to carry out an empirical study of a topic that has a bioethics component. The most successful of these proposals have already conducted enough empirical research to allow the applicant to discuss what conceptual or normative bioethics issues they will focus on. Because the Greenwall Faculty Scholar award supports only effort of the Scholar, other support will be needed to collect and analyze new empirical data. Applicants who propose to carry out focus groups and a survey on a topic that intersects with bioethics, without a strong conceptual framework and normative analysis, are unlikely to be successful. Applicants who are extending previous empirical research to a new population or clinical condition are unlikely to be successful unless there is a persuasive demonstration of how their proposed work is innovative.

2. Demonstrated ability to carry out innovative bioethics research. At the full application stage of the selection process, the Faculty Scholars Program Committee carefully reads a peer-reviewed first-authored bioethics paper written by the applicant. Because this demonstrated publication of bioethics research is given great weights, applicants who have not yet published a strong bioethics article will not be successful. Scholars who have published a book should submit a chapter that best indicates the quality of their thinking in bioethics.

RO Deadline: October 8, 2014
Full Proposal: December 8, 2014
Annual Budget: $500 K – $1 Million/year

Abstract:

The Theory Institute in Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) Physics will be a center to advance theoretical AMO physics and lead in motivating and explaining new experimental work in AMO and other areas of science. The goal of this institute is to foster cutting edge research, serve as a focus for theoretical AMO science, and to enhance the visibility of the field. It will bring together diverse groups both inside and outside of the AMO community to promote connections leading to frontier science, while fostering a vibrant environment at all levels from student to senior investigator. Funding for the institute is designed to foster major breakthroughs at the intellectual frontier of AMO physics by providing resources beyond those available to individual investigators or small groups, in an environment in which the collective efforts of the larger group can be shown to be seminal to promoting significant progress in the science and the education of students. Although interdisciplinary aspects may be included, the bulk of the effort must fall within theoretical atomic, molecular, and optical physics within the purview of the Division of Physics.

The successful institute will demonstrate:

(1) the potential to advance AMO science

(2) creative, substantive activities aimed at enhancing education, diversity, and public outreach

(3) potential for broader impacts, e.g., impacts on other field(s) and benefits to society

(4) a synergy or value-added rationale that justifies a center- or institute-like approach.

Major Research Instrumentation Program: (MRI)

POSTED: September 17, 2015 at 4:23 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: October 22, 2014
Full Proposal: January 22, 2015
Annual Budget: $1 – 4 million

Abstract:

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation’s institutions of higher education, and not-for-profit museums, science centers and scientific/engineering research organizations. This program especially seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, by supporting proposals for shared instrumentation that fosters the integration of research and education in research- 1 intensive learning environments. Each MRI proposal may request support for the acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single research instrument for shared inter- and/or intra organizational use; development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at MRI submission -eligible organizations are encouraged. To accomplish the program’s goals, the MRI program assists with the acquisition or development of a shared research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs. The instrument is expected to be operational for regular research use by the end of the award period. For the purposes of the MRI program, a proposal must be for either acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single instrument or for equipment that, when combined, serves as an integrated research instrument (in contrast to requests for multiple instruments that enable research in a common or focused research domain, which MRI does not support). The MRI program does not support the acquisition or development of a suite of instruments to outfit research laboratories/facilities or that will be used to conduct independent research activities simultaneously. Instrument acquisition or development proposals that request funds from NSF in the range $100,000-$4 million may be accepted from any MRI-eligible organization. Proposals that request funds from NSF less than $100,000 may also be accepted from any MRI-eligible organization for the disciplines of mathematics or social, behavioral and economic sciences and from non-Ph.D. -granting institutions of higher education for all NSF-supported disciplines. Cost-sharing of precisely 30% of the total project cost is required for Ph.D. -granting institutions of higher education and for non-degree-granting organizations. Non-Ph.D. -granting institutions of higher education are exempt from cost-sharing and cannot include it. National Science Board policy is that voluntary committed cost sharing is prohibited.

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: April 21, 2014
Full Proposal: June 24, 2014
Letter of Intent: May 20, 2014
Annual Budget: $3 million for 5 years

Abstract:

The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is designed to encourage the development of bold, new, potentially transformative, and scalable models for STEM graduate training that ensure that graduate students develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. The NRT program initially has one priority research theme – Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (DESE); in addition, proposals are encouraged on any other crosscutting, interdisciplinary theme. In either case, proposals should identify the alignment of project research themes with national research priorities and the need for innovative approaches to train graduate students in those areas. NRT projects should develop evidence-based, sustainable approaches and practices that substantially improve STEM graduate education for NRT trainees and for STEM graduate students broadly at an institution. NRT emphasizes the development of competencies for both research and research-related careers. Strategic collaborations with the private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government agencies, museums, and academic partners that enhance research quality and impacts and that facilitate development of technical and transferrable professional skills are encouraged. Creation of sustainable programmatic capacity at institutions is an expected outcome. Proposals accordingly are expected to describe how institutions will support the continuation and institutional-level scaling of effective training elements after award closure.

Abstract:

Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM) funds research projects that identify factors that are efficacious in the formation of ethical STEM researchers in all the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports. CCE STEM solicits proposals for research that explores the following: ‘What constitutes ethical STEM research and practice? Which cultural and institutional contexts promote ethical STEM research and practice and why?’ Factors one might consider include: honor codes, professional ethics codes and licensing requirements, an ethic of service and/or service learning, life-long learning requirements, curricula or memberships in organizations (e.g. Engineers without Borders) that stress social responsibility and humanitarian goals, institutions that serve under-represented groups, institutions where academic and research integrity are cultivated at multiple levels, institutions that cultivate ethics across the curriculum, or programs that promote group work, or do not grade. Do certain labs have a ‘culture of academic integrity’? What practices contribute to the establishment and maintenance of ethical cultures and how can these practices be transferred, extended to, and integrated into other research and learning settings?

Successful proposals will include a comparative dimension, either between or within institutional settings that differ along these or other factors.

Full Proposal: June 16, 2014
Annual Budget: Awards will be in the range of $250,000-$375,000 per year for four years, depending on the scope of the work proposed.

Abstract:

The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a fourth year of a program on collaborative research and education in the area of scalable nanomanufacturing, including the long-term societal implications of the large-scale implementation of nanomanufacturing innovations. This program is in response to and is a component of the National Nanotechnology Initiative Signature Initiative: Sustainable Nanomanufacturing – Creating the Industries of the Future (http://www.nano.gov/node/611). Although many nanofabrication techniques have demonstrated the ability to fabricate small quantities of nanomaterials, nanostructures and nanodevices for characterization and evaluation purposes, the emphasis of the scalable nanomanufacturing program is on research to overcome the key scientific and technological barriers that prevent the production of useful nanomaterials, nanostructures, devices and systems at an industrially relevant scale, reliably, and at low cost and within environmental, health and safety guidelines. Competitive proposals will incorporate three elements in their research plans:

A persuasive case that the nanomaterials, nanostructures, devices or systems to be produced have or are likely to have sufficient demand to justify eventual scale-up; A clearly identified set of research issues for science and engineering solutions that must be addressed to enable the production of high quality nano-enabled products at low cost; and A compelling research plan with clear research objectives and approaches to overcome the identified research issues.

The mode of support is Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT).

Annual Budget: Budgets for TCN proposals should match the scope of work and not exceed four years in duration. Budgets for PEN proposals may be up to $175,000 and may be from 1 to 3 years in duration.

Abstract:

This program seeks to enhance and expand the national resource of digital data documenting existing vouchered biological and paleontological collections and to advance scientific knowledge by improving access to digitized information (including images) residing in vouchered scientific collections across the United States. The information associated with various collections of organisms, such as geographic, paleogeographic and stratigraphic distribution, environmental habitat data, phenology, information about associated organisms, collector field notes, and tissues and molecular data extracted from the specimens, is a rich resource providing the baseline from which to further biodiversity research and provide critical information about existing gaps in our knowledge of life on earth. The national resource is structured at three levels: a central coordinating organization, a series of thematic networks based on an important research theme, and the physical collections. The national resource builds upon a sizable existing national investment in curation of the physical objects in scientific collections and contributes vitally to scientific research and technology interests in the United States. It will become an invaluable tool in understanding contemporary biological issues and challenges.

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: May 30, 2014
Preliminary Proposal: June 15, 2014
Full Proposal: November 1, 2014
Annual Budget: Research grants range from $500,000 to $5 million, and are typically $2 million or less. Budget must include near 1:1 matching – matching can include F&A as well as staff time.

Abstract:

The W.M. Keck Foundation makes grants in support of science and engineering research that is distinctive and novel in its approach. Funding is awarded for projects in science and engineering research that: • Focus on important and emerging areas of research

• Lay the groundwork for new paradigms and discoveries that will save lives and provide innovative solutions

• Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies

• Are innovative, distinctive and interdisciplinary

• Demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches

• Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem

• Fall outside the mission of public funding agencies

• Demonstrate that private philanthropy generally, and the W. M. Keck Foundation in particular, is essential to the project’s success.

It is very important that your idea not be eligible for funding by NSF and NIH. “High Risk” is the mantra of the Keck Foundation – “High-risk” comprises a number of factors, including questions that push the edge of the field, present unconventional approaches to intractable problems, or challenge the prevailing paradigm. The first step in the process is for UD to gather all ideas and submit them as a group to the Keck Foundation. Then, the Foundation will discuss all of the ideas with college deans and/or the vice provost for research to determine the best proposal to move forward. Single-paged concept papers should include: • An overview of the research proposed emphasizing any unique aspects and pilot studies, • A brief description of the key personnel and methodologies • A brief justification of the need for Keck support • An estimated budget broken down, if possible, by major areas, e.g., personnel, equipment, consumable supplies, etc. (Budgets can be rough approximations at this stage.) You are free to add other details (e.g., background to put the research into perspective, description of the institution’s prominence in the field, etc.) if there’s room. Avoid illustrations in these single-pagers. The researchers will need all the room for text. If a reference is absolutely necessary, abbreviate it as (Science, 323, 45, ‘11).

Please see the Keck website for further information, including examples of funded projects http://www.wmkeck.org/grant-programs/research.

Abstract:

This solicitation aims at introducing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches into undergraduate engineering education. The focus of the FY 2014 competition is on nanoscale engineering education with relevance to devices and systems and/or on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.

A well-prepared, innovative science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce is crucial to the Nation’s health and economy. Indeed, recent policy actions and reports have drawn attention to the opportunities and challenges inherent in increasing the number of highly qualified STEM graduates, including STEM teachers. Priorities include educating students to be leaders and innovators in emerging and rapidly changing STEM fields as well as educating a scientifically literate populace; both of these priorities depend on the nature and quality of the undergraduate education experience. In addressing these STEM challenges and priorities, the National Science Foundation invests in research-based and research-generating approaches to understanding STEM learning; to designing, testing, and studying curricular change; to wide dissemination and implementation of best practices; and to broadening participation of individuals and institutions in STEM fields. The goals of these investments include: increasing student retention in STEM, to prepare students well to participate in science for tomorrow, and to improve students’ STEM learning outcomes.

Recognizing disciplinary differences and priorities, NSF’s investment in research and development in undergraduate STEM education encompasses a range of approaches. These approaches include: experiential learning, assessment/metrics of learning and practice, scholarships, foundational education research, professional development/institutional change, formal and informal learning environments, and undergraduate disciplinary research. Both individually and integrated in a range of combinations, these approaches can lead to outcomes including: developing the STEM and STEM-related workforce, advancing science, broadening participation in STEM, educating a STEM-literate populace, improving K-12 STEM education, encouraging life-long learning, and building capacity in higher education.

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: November 25, 2013
Full Proposal: January 23, 2014
Annual Budget: $1-4 million

Abstract:

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation’s institutions of higher education, and not-for-profit museums, science centers and scientific/engineering research organizations. This program especially seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, by supporting proposals for shared instrumentation that fosters the integration of research and education in research-intensive learning environments. Each MRI proposal may request support for the acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single research instrument for shared inter- and/or intra-organizational use; development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at MRI submission-eligible organizations are encouraged.

To accomplish the program’s goals, the MRI program assists with the acquisition or development of a shared research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs. The instrument is expected to be operational for regular research use by the end of the award period. For the purposes of the MRI program, a proposal must be for either acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single instrument or for equipment that, when combined, serves as an integrated research instrument (in contrast to requests for multiple instruments that enable research in a common or focused research domain, which MRI does not support). The MRI program does not support the acquisition or development of a suite of instruments to outfit research laboratories/facilities or that will be used to conduct independent research activities simultaneously.

Instrument acquisition or development proposals that request funds from NSF in the range $100,000-$4 million may be accepted from any MRI-eligible organization. Proposals that request funds from NSF less than $100,000 may also be accepted from any MRI-eligible organization for the disciplines of mathematics or social, behavioral and economic sciences and from non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education for all NSF-supported
disciplines.

Cost-sharing of precisely 30% of the total project cost is required for Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education and for non-degree-granting organizations. Non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education are exempt from cost-sharing and cannot include it. National Science Board policy is that voluntary committed cost sharing is prohibited.

Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI: BIC)

POSTED: September 17, 2015 at 2:56 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: September 30, 2013
Full Proposal: January 27, 2014
Letter of Intent: November 18, 2013
Annual Budget: $800,000 for 3 years

Abstract:

The Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI:BIC) program supports academe-industry partnerships, which are led by an interdisciplinary academic research team with a least one industry partner, to collaborate in building technological and human innovation capacity [4]. This innovation capacity is intended to endure beyond the initial award. Partnerships that build the capacity to innovate are expected to be effective at innovating and able to continue to innovate. They are highly intentional about creating an environment that fosters innovation. These partnerships not only develop new technology but also foster the development of human capital that embraces a culture of change, nurtures the generation of new ideas, and onsiders feedback an integral part of the innovation processes. Partnership members are diverse, representing a spectrum of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. Partnership activities that drive sustained innovation include the targeted allocation of resources such as capital, time, facilities; and sharing of knowledge in a cross-organizational and interdisciplinary context.

The PFI:BIC partnership team should focus on technological innovations with potential for significant economic/societal impact. The team collaborates on research, focusing on novel applications motivated by existing research discoveries and based on a platform technology with the potential to achieve transformational change in existing service systems or to spur entirely new service systems. To attain this goal, these partnerships, which inherently require interdisciplinary research, must address what is needed to advance this technology so as to enable a “smart” service system or systems to enter into the commercialization process, succeed in the marketplace, and achieve positive economic, social, and environmental outcomes. Such advancement involves not only engineering, computer science, and other fields of science, but also an understanding of the potential interaction of the technology with customers and the broader public affected by the technology, the “socio-technical system.” A full understanding of the socio-technical system will require interdisciplinary teams that include social, behavior, and/or cognitive sciences. Finally, the team should demonstrate an understanding of potential commercial applications and markets, which should contribute to guiding the project activities.
Examples [5] of technology applied to service systems include smart healthcare, smart cities, on-demand transportation, precision agriculture, smart infrastructure, and other technologies enabling self-service and customized service solutions.
WEBINARS: Webinars will be held to answer questions about the solicitation. Register on the BIC website where details will be posted (http://www.nsf.gov/eng/iip/pfi/bic.jsp). In addition to potential applicants and their partners, Vice Presidents for Research and academic personnel concerned with the review of their institutions’ selection of candidates for submission as well as individuals from Sponsored Research Offices are encouraged to attend.

Greenwall Foundation

POSTED: September 17, 2015 at 2:53 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: October 1, 2013
Letter of Intent: November 1, 2013
Annual Budget: 50% scholarly salary & benefits + $5,000/3 years

Abstract:

The goal of the Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is to nurture the next generation of leading bioethics researchers at a crucial stage in their academic careers, when they have started a tenure-track faculty appointment, need protected time to establish a long-term, sustainable research program, and would benefit from mentoring from senior bioethics scholars and joining a community of other bioethics researchers.

1. The proposed project. Does it address an important bioethics issue in an innovative way? Does the application show how the project will make a significant advance beyond what has already been published on the topic? Is the applicant thinking about the conceptual and normative ethical issues regarding the topic in a rigorous and creative way?
We commonly receive proposals to carry out an empirical study of a topic that has a bioethics component. The most successful of these proposals have already conducted enough empirical research to allow the applicant to discuss what conceptual or normative bioethics issues they will focus on. Because the Greenwall Faculty Scholar award supports only effort of the Scholar, other support will be needed to collect and analyze new empirical data. Applicants who propose to carry out focus groups and a survey on a topic that intersects with bioethics, without a strong conceptual framework and normative analysis, are unlikely to be successful. Applicants who are extending previous empirical research to a new population or clinical condition are unlikely to be successful unless there is a persuasive demonstration of how their proposed work is innovative.
2. Demonstrated ability to carry out innovative bioethics research. At the full application stage of the selection process, the Faculty Scholars Program Committee carefully reads a peer-reviewed first-authored bioethics paper written by the applicant. Because this demonstrated publication of bioethics research is given great weights, applicants who have not yet published a strong bioethics article will not be successful. Scholars who have published a book should submit a chapter that best indicates the quality of their thinking in bioethics.

Abstract:

Microsoft Research seeks nominees who are advancing computing research in novel directions with the potential for high impact on the state of the art, and who demonstrate the likelihood of becoming thought leaders in the field.

Each fellowship includes a cash award. The Microsoft Research Faculty Fellows also have access to other Microsoft resources, such as software, invitations to conferences, and engagements with Microsoft Research. Microsoft awards Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship grants each year; awardees are selected by April.
The Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship Awards program provides recipients considerable freedom in planning the focus of their academic research. The funds can be applied to a wide variety of uses to pursue novel research. Examples of possible research areas include, but are not limited to: interdisciplinary research, scientific computing, bioinformatics, computational biology, software engineering, and other areas where computing transforms the discipline and advances the state of the art.

• Candidates for the Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship program must be nominated by their research institution, and their nominations must be confirmed by a letter from the head of the institution (for example, office of the Provost, Pro-Vice Chancellor, President, Rector, Vice-Rector, and so on). Direct applications from new faculty members are not accepted.
• No more than one nomination from each research institution will be accepted. For instance, a university cannot nominate both a candidate from the Department of Computer Science and a candidate from its medical school.
• An emphasis is placed on nominations from departments working on computing research areas and on areas that involve the innovative application of computing.
• Applications may only be submitted through the online application tool by the application contact who is designated by the office of the head of the institution.
• A link to the application tool will be available from this page on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, 12:00 Noon, Pacific Time.
• The nomination period closes on September 30, 2013—no applications will be accepted after this date.
• In general, in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East, or Africa, nominees must hold a tenure-track faculty position, and should have completed their most recent PhD or ScD in 2007 or later. In Latin America, nominees must hold a permanent faculty position and must have obtained their PhD degree in 2007 or later. Justified extensions, such as maternity leave, may be accepted.
• Nominees from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East, or Africa must be new faculty members in the first, second, or third year of their first tenure-track faculty appointment. Due to differences in academic career paths in Latin America, it is required that nominees from Latin America be faculty members in a permanent faculty position.
• Three (3) letters of recommendation are required from established researchers who are familiar with the nominee’s research. Of these letters, one (1) letter of recommendation should come from within the nominating institution, and the other two (2) letters should come from outside of the nominating institution.

Annual Budget: $50,000 for two years

Abstract:

The Sloan Research Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research by early-career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise. These two-year fellowships are awarded yearly to 126 researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field.
• Candidates must hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in chemistry, computational or evolutionary molecular biology, computer science, economics, mathematics, neuroscience, ocean sciences (including marine biology), physics, or a related field
• Candidates must hold a tenure track (or equivalent) position at a college, university or other degree-granting institution in the United States or Canada
• Candidates must normally be no more than six years from completion of their most recent Ph.D. (or equivalent) as of the year of their nomination. (That is, most recent Ph.D. must have been awarded on or after September 2007.)

While Fellows are expected to be at an early stage of their research careers, there should be strong evidence of independent research accomplishments. Candidates in all fields are normally below the rank of associate professor and do not hold tenure, but these are not strict requirements.
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation welcomes nominations of all candidates who meet the traditional high standards of this program, and strongly encourages the participation of women and members of underrepresented minority groups.

**The Selection Committees may make exceptions for candidates who were awarded their Ph.D. prior to September 2007 if their careers were disrupted due to military service, child-rearing, or a change of field. The Committees may also make exceptions for candidates who are currently serving in their first faculty position and who were appointed to that position on or after September 2011.

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: August 19, 2013
Full Proposal: October 18, 2013
Annual Budget: TCN-up to 4 yrs, should match scope of work proposed. PEN- 1-3 yrs up to $175,000

Abstract:

This program seeks to enhance and expand the national resource of digital data documenting existing vouchered biological and paleontological collections and to advance scientific knowledge by improving access to digitized information (including images) residing in vouchered scientific collections across the United States. The information associated with various collections of organisms, such as geographic, paleogeographic and stratigraphic distribution, environmental habitat data, phenology, information about associated organisms, collector field notes, and tissues and molecular data extracted from the specimens, is a rich resource providing the baseline from which to further biodiversity research and provide critical information about existing gaps in our knowledge of life on earth. The national resource is structured at three levels: a central coordinating organization, a series of thematic networks based on an important research theme, and the physical collections. The national resource builds upon a sizable existing national investment in curation of the physical objects in scientific collections and contributes vitally to scientific research and technology interests in the United States. It will become an invaluable tool in understanding contemporary biological issues and challenges.
This solicitation focuses on proposals for Thematic Collections Networks (TCN) and proposals for Partners to Existing Networks (PEN) to link with existing TCNs, outlined below. Improvements to individual collections are supported through CSBR. Thematic Collections Network (TCN) proposals will be submissions for two-to-four year awards to digitize existing specimens based on a particular research theme.
Proposals to partner with and further the efforts of ongoing NSF-funded TCNs are encouraged. The new partners must increase the number of specimens digitized in the ongoing project and fill gaps not addressed by the specimens in the existing TCN. The existing TCNs are working to integrate data via the National Resource for Digitization of Biological Collections: Integrated Digitized Biocollections at the University of Florida (iDigBio). A list of those projects is available through iDigBio.

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: May 24, 2013
Full Proposal: September 19, 2013
Letter of Intent: June 3, 2013
Annual Budget: $1.45 million over 5 years

Abstract:

The UTeach secondary mathematics, science, and computer science teacher preparation program has been in existence since 1997 at The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin). Recognizing that an essential condition for student achievement in mathematics and science is a teacher with strong content knowledge, Mary Ann Rankin, then Dean of the College of Natural Sciences, made teacher preparation a high college priority and initiated a partnership with the College of Education, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Austin Independent School District to improve the University’s program for secondary mathematics, science, and computer science teacher preparation. The University’s College of Education redesigned generic education courses to focus specifically on secondary mathematics and science teaching, the College of Liberal Arts designed a course on the philosophy and history of mathematics and science, and the College of Natural Sciences modified curricula and began aggressively recruiting mathematics and science majors to become
teachers.
Implementation of the UTeach program model requires substantial changes over an extended period at the institutional level of a university. To promote the dual goals of fidelity to the UTeach model and long term sustainability, the Institute has developed a comprehensive approach to replication aligned with recommendations from the research literature on fidelity of implementation and program replication and expansion (e.g., Century, Rudnick, & Freeman, 2010; Glennan, Bodilly, Galegher, & Kerr, 2004; Hall & Hord, 2010; Hill, Maucione, & Hood, 2007).

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: May 1, 2013
Preliminary Proposal: June 1, 2013
Full Proposal: November 1, 2013
Annual Budget: Grants are capped at $1,000,000 and must include near 1:1 matching – matching can include F&A as well as staff time. Keck is largely interested in funding equipment.

Abstract:

The W.M. Keck Foundation makes grants in support of science and engineering research that is distinctive and novel in its approach.
Funding is awarded for projects in science and engineering research that:
• Focus on important and emerging areas of research
• Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies
• Are innovative, distinctive and interdisciplinary
• Demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches, or by challenging the prevailing paradigm
• Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem
• Fall outside the mission of public funding agencies
• Demonstrate that private philanthropy generally, and the W. M. Keck Foundation in particular, is essential to the project’s success
It is very important that your idea not be eligible for funding by NSF and NIH. “High Risk” is the mantra of the Keck Foundation – “High-risk” comprises a number of factors, including questions that push the edge of the field, present unconventional approaches to intractable problems, or challenge the prevailing paradigm. The first step in the process is for UD to gather all ideas and submit them as a group to the Keck Foundation. Then, the Foundation will discuss all of the ideas with the Provost of the University to determine the best proposal to move forward.

Single-paged concept papers should include:
• an overview of the research proposed emphasizing any unique aspects and pilot studies;
• a brief description of the key personnel and methodologies;
• a brief justification of the need for Keck support;
• an estimated budget broken down, if possible, by major areas, e.g., personnel, equipment, consumable supplies, etc. (Budgets can be rough approximations at this stage.)
You are free to add other details (e.g., background to put the research into perspective, description of the institution’s prominence in the field, etc.) if there’s room. Avoid illustrations in these single-pagers. The researchers will need all the room for text. If a reference is absolutely necessary, abbreviate it as (Science, 323, 45, ‘11).

Annual Budget: The computational resource awards will be capped at $12,000,000 each and the data resource award at $6,000,000 for up to 4 years.

Abstract:

Synopsis of Program: The NSF’s vision for Advanced Computing Infrastructure (ACI), which is part of its Cyberinfrastructure for 21st Century Science and Engineering (CIF21), focuses specifically on ensuring that the science and engineering community has ready access to the advanced computational and data-driven capabilities required to tackle the most complex problems and issues facing today’s scientific and educational communities. To accomplish these goals requires advanced computational capabilities within the context of a multilevel comprehensive and innovative infrastructure that benefits all fields of science and engineering. Currently the NSF operates, through Blue Waters and the eXtreme Digital (XD) program, a two-tiered comprehensive distributed Cyberinfrastructure (CI), and one of the largest and most powerful in the world. Both of these tiers are explicitly designed to address needs beyond the campus level. With this solicitation, NSF intends to continue this model to broaden the CI capabilities above the campus level. The current solicitation requests innovative proposal of two types: The first is intended to complement previous NSF investments in advanced computational infrastructure. Consistent with the ACI Strategic Plan, the current solicitation is focused on expanding the use of high end resources to a much larger and more diverse community. The second type is devoted to the increasing pressure on the existing infrastructure to store and process very large amounts of data coming from simulation and from experimental resources such as telescopes, genome data banks or sensors. The current solicitation is designed to complement these other solicitations and calls for the acquisition and support of a large scale instrument that will have the capability of storing, sustainably accessing, analyzing, disseminating, securing and migrating data across the NSF cyberinfrastructure.

Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship Program

POSTED: September 17, 2015 at 1:44 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline:
Annual Budget: Each fellowship includes a cash award. The Microsoft Research Faculty Fellows also have access to other Microsoft resources, such as software, invitations to conferences, and engagements with Microsoft Research.

Abstract:

Microsoft Research seeks new faculty nominees who are advancing computing research in novel directions with the potential for high impact on the state of the art, and who demonstrate the likelihood of becoming thought leaders in the field.

The future of computing in academe rests with its newest faculty. In these early-career professionals lie the seeds of tomorrow’s great innovations. However, while recognized faculty with well-established reputations are able to attract the financial support necessary for substantial research programs, new faculty often struggle to secure adequate support to allow them to realize their full potential.

Because new faculty are so vital to the future of academic computer science, the Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship Program identifies, recognizes, and supports exceptional new faculty members who are engaged in innovative computing research. The objective of this program is to stimulate and support creative research undertaken by promising researchers who have the potential to make a profound impact on the field of computing in their research disciplines. Microsoft Research will select fellows this year from nominees from four regions: Latin America and the Caribbean; Europe, the Middle East, and Africa; the United States and Canada; and Australia and New Zealand.

•Candidates for the Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship program must be nominated by their research institution, and their nominations must be confirmed by a letter from the head of the institution (for example, office of the Provost, Pro-Vice Chancellor, President, Rector, Vice-Rector, and so on). Direct applications from new faculty members are not accepted.

•No more than one nomination from each research institution will be accepted. An emphasis is placed on nominations from departments working on computing research areas and on areas that involve the innovative application of computing.

•Applications may only be submitted through the online application tool by the application contact who is designated by the office of the head of the institution. Note: The nomination period closes on October 22, 2012—no applications will be accepted after this date.

•In general, in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East, or Africa, nominees must hold a tenure-track faculty position, and should have completed their most recent PhD or ScD in 2006 or later. In Latin America, nominees must hold a permanent faculty position and must have obtained their PhD degree in 2006 or later. Justified extensions, such as maternity leave, may be accepted.

•Nominees from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East, or Africa must be new faculty members in the first, second, or third year of their first tenure-track faculty appointment. Due to differences in academic career paths in Latin America, it is required that nominees from Latin America be faculty members in a permanent faculty position.

•Three (3) letters of recommendation are required from established researchers who are familiar with the nominee’s research. Of these letters, one (1) letter of recommendation should come from within the nominating institution, and the other two (2) letters should come from outside of the nominating institution. Letters may be submitted electronically with the online application tool.

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: October 26, 2012
Full Proposal: January 24, 2013
Annual Budget: Total budget range: $100K- $4M

Abstract:

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation’s institutions of higher education, museums, science centers, and not-for-profit organizations. This program especially seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, by providing shared instrumentation that fosters the integration of research and education in research-intensive learning environments. Development and acquisition of research instrumentation for shared inter- and/or intra-organizational use are encouraged, as are development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at academic institutions.

To accomplish these goals, the MRI program assists with the acquisition or development of shared research instrumentation that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs. Instruments are expected to be operational for regular research use by the end of the award period. For the purposes of the MRI program, proposals must be for either acquisition or development of a single instrument or for equipment that, when combined, serves as an integrated research instrument (physical or virtual). The MRI program does not support the acquisition or development of a suite of instruments to outfit research laboratories/facilities or to conduct independent research activities simultaneously. Further guidance on appropriate requests can be found in the MRI Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) at http://www.nsf.gov/od/oia/programs/mri.

Instrument acquisition or development proposals that request funds from NSF in the range $100,000-$4 million will be accepted from all eligible organizations. Proposals that request funds from NSF less than $100,000 will also be accepted from all eligible organizations for the disciplines of mathematics or social, behavioral and economic sciences and from non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education for all NSF-supported disciplines.

Cost-sharing at the level of 30% of the total project cost is required for Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education and for non-degree-granting organizations. Non-Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education are exempt from the cost-sharing requirement.

Critical Zone Observatories (CZO)

POSTED: September 17, 2015 at 1:35 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: October 12, 2012
Full Proposal: February 5, 2013
Annual Budget: $1,000,000 per year (up to $5,000,000 over 5 years)

Abstract:

Observations have always informed critical decisions and knowledge building throughout human history. Earth observations are a critical ingredient for understanding and predicting the sustainability or disruption of natural services that support basic human needs including water, food, energy, mineral resources, and safe habitation. Such observations are collected by seismic networks, atmospheric and ocean-based sensors (detecting, e.g., ozone, greenhouse gases, ocean currents, sea ice extent), river and tide gauges, and satellites that observe changing terrestrial features including receding glaciers, growth of deserts and urban centers, and evolving vegetative covers.

One pressing challenge is to develop terrestrial observatories that could document and inform prediction of the multi-scale and less visible transport of energy and material, and evolution of the Earth’s critical zone. This zone -the thin veneer of Earth that extends from the top of the vegetation to the base of weathered bedrock- is critical because it is where fresh water flows, soils are formed from rocks, and terrestrial life flourishes. This zone provides most of the ecosystem services on which societies depend. Its intrinsic resilience, natural evolution, and fate in the face of human land use and climate change needs to be understood and predicted in order to inform our strategies for sustaining a wide range of human activities. Unprecedented pressures are being placed on the critical zone, and understanding the interrelated processes, system dynamics, sensitivities, and thresholds in this zone is of vital importance for informing human decisions.

NSF seeks proposals to establish a networked set of Critical Zone Observatories (CZOs) that will address pressing interdisciplinary scientific questions concerning geological, physical, chemical, and biological processes and their couplings that govern critical zone system dynamics. The CZOs are expected, collectively, to 1) measure and quantify the significant processes of the critical zone on appropriate time and space scales; 2) develop a unifying theoretical framework that integrates new understanding of coupled hydrological, geochemical, geomorphological, sedimentological and biological processes; and 3) develop, couple and validate system-level models to predict how the critical zone responds to external forces such as anthropogenic, climatic, and/or tectonic processes. Each observatory must contribute to strengthening the scientific basis for decision-making, particularly with regards to impacts on health, safety, and environment due to observed and predicted changes in the critical zone.

NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards (DP5)

POSTED: September 17, 2015 at 1:32 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: November 30, 2012
Full Proposal: January 30, 2013
Letter of Intent: December 30, 2012
Annual Budget: $250,000

Abstract:

The NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards initiative is funded through the NIH Common Fund, which supports cross-cutting programs that are expected to have exceptionally high impact. All Common Fund initiatives invite investigators to develop bold, innovative, and often risky approaches to address problems that may seem intractable or to seize new opportunities that offer the potential for rapid progress.

The NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards provide an opportunity for exceptional junior scientists to accelerate their entry into an independent research career by forgoing the traditional post-doctoral training period. Though most newly graduated doctoral-level researchers would benefit by post-doctoral training, a small pool of outstanding junior investigators would benefit instead by launching directly into an independent research career. For these select investigators, who have established a record of scientific innovation and research productivity and who have demonstrated unusual leadership, drive, and maturity, post-doctoral training would unnecessarily delay their entry into performing independent research. The NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards also provide an opportunity for institutions to invigorate their research programs by bringing in the fresh perspectives of the awardee scientists that they host.

At the time of application, the Early Independence Award candidate must be within twelve months before or after the completion of their PhD (or equivalent) or for clinicians within twelve months before or after the completion of their medical residency (or equivalent) training. The medical fellowship period is NOT included as part of the medical residence or equivalent training. The date of degree receipt is that which appears on the official transcript for the degree. The time of application is the date when the application is submitted electronically to NIH through Grants.gov. In addition, at the time of application, the Early Independence investigator must not have served as a post-doctoral fellow following a previous doctoral degree for more than one year. By the end of the award period, the Early Independence investigator is expected to be competitive for continued funding of his/her research program and for a permanent research position.

Abstract:

The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to develop and nurture a national innovation ecosystem that builds upon fundamental research to guide the output of scientific discoveries closer to the development of technologies, products and processes that benefit society.

The National Science Foundation plans to build upon the I-Corps program and establish a National Innovation Network comprised of I-Corps Regional Nodes that will support the needs for innovation research and education. NSF is seeking to build a network of regional nodes that will work cooperatively to establish, utilize and sustain a national innovation ecosystem that further enhances the development of technologies, products and processes that benefit society. The interconnected nodes of this network may be diverse in research areas, resources, tools, programs, capabilities, and in geographic locations – while the network will have the flexibility to grow or reconfigure as needs arise. I-Corps Regional Nodes will foster understanding on how to: 1) identify, develop and support promising ideas that can generate value, 2) create and implement tools and resources that enhance our nation’s innovation capacity, 3) gather, analyze, evaluate and utilize the data and insight resulting from the experiences of those participating in the I-Corps program and 4) share and leverage effective innovation practices on a national scale – to improve the quality of life for the U.S. citizenry.

Abstract:

Selection procedures for the Sloan Research Fellowships are designed to identify those who show the most outstanding promise of making fundamental contributions to new knowledge. Sloan Research Fellows, once chosen, are free to pursue whatever lines of inquiry are of the most compelling interest to them. Their Sloan funds can be applied to a wide variety of uses for which other, more restricted funds such as research project grants cannot usually be employed. Former Fellows report that this flexibility often gives the Fellowships a value well beyond their dollar amounts.
Aside from the monetary aspect of the Fellowships, less tangible benefits have been cited by former Fellows. The early recognition of distinguished performance which the Fellowships confer, after years of arduous preparation, was said to be immensely encouraging and a stimulu to personal and career development. Thirty-nine Sloan Research Fellows have won Nobel Prizes later in their careers, and hundreds have received other honors.

Annual Budget: NHLBI intends to commit $1,524,000 in FY 2016, in FY 2017, and in FY 2018. NHLBI intends to fund up to six awards.

Abstract:

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research educational activities that complement other formal training programs in the mission areas of the NIH Institutes and Centers. The over-arching goals of the NIH R25 program are to: (1) complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs; (2) enhance the diversity of the biomedical, behavioral and clinical research workforce; (3) help recruit individuals with specific specialty or disciplinary backgrounds to research careers in biomedical, behavioral and clinical sciences; and (4) foster a better understanding of biomedical, behavioral and clinical research and its implications.

The over-arching goal of this NHLBI R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. Specifically, this FOA will enhance the training of quantitatively oriented students to encourage them to pursue advanced degrees in biostatistics-related fields for a career in biomedical and biostatistical research. To accomplish the stated goal, this FOA will support the following integrated educational activities with a primary focus on:

Courses for Skills Development in the principles and methods of contemporary biostatistics as employed in biomedical research today, incorporating hands-on research experiences and mentoring activities to introduce the participants to careers in biostatistical research.

With this FOA, NHLBI invites applications for grants to develop, conduct, and evaluate summer courses in the principles and methods of contemporary biostatistics as employed in biomedical research. The courses will introduce advanced undergraduates, recent graduates, and beginning graduate students to the field of biostatistics for the purpose of encouraging them to pursue careers in biostatistics. The term “biostatistics” is used in the broad sense, including statistical genetics, bioinformatics, and data science. The courses should cover the fundamental concepts of probability, statistical reasoning, and inferential methods motivated, in part, by examples that include data collected in studies of heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. Applicants can choose certain aspects of biostatistics for more in-depth introduction depending on the strength and expertise of their faculty. The courses will be taught during the summers of 2016, 2017, and 2018 with appropriate modifications or refinements following the first and second summer sessions.

Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs (BD Hubs)

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: May 8, 2015
Full Proposal: June 24, 2015
Letter of Intent: April 16, 2015
Annual Budget: $1.25M for 3 yrs

Abstract:

In March 2012, the Administration announced the National Big Data Research and Development Initiative, which aims to solve some of the Nation’s most pressing R&D challenges related to extracting knowledge and insights from large, complex collections of digital data. As part of this initiative, the Administration encouraged multiple stakeholders including federal agencies, private industry, academia, state and local governments, non-profits, and foundations, to develop and participate in Big Data research and innovation projects across the country. To augment ongoing activities and to ignite new Big Data public-private partnerships across the Nation, NSF’s Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) is seeking to establish a National Network of Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs (BD Hubs). Each BD Hub would be a consortium of members from academia, industry, and/or government. This solicitation aims to establish four Hubs across distinct geographic regions of the United States, including the Northeast, Midwest, South, and West, as defined later in the Program Description section. Each BD Hub should focus on key Big Data challenges and opportunities for its region of service. The BD Hubs should aim to support the breadth of interested local stakeholders within their respective regions, while members of a BD Hub should strive to achieve common Big Data goals that would not be possible for the independent members to achieve alone. To foster collaboration among prospective partners within a region, NSF is sponsoring a series of regional, intensive, one-day workshops (called “charrettes”). One charrette will be held in each geographic region to convene stakeholders, explore Big Data challenges, and aid in the establishment of that consortium. For more information on these charrettes, see the following webpage: http://www.usenix.org/BDHubs15 . To facilitate discussion among interested parties, a HUBzero community portal has been established at http://bdhub.info . Interested parties may leverage this portal to communicate with members within their region or other stakeholders nationwide. This solicitation is the first of a multi-phase process meant to develop a National Network of BD Hubs. The first phase will set up the governance structure of each BD Hub’s consortium of members as well as develop approaches to ensure cross-hub collaboration and sustainability over the long term. The next phase will focus on building out various sectors of particular interest to each BD Hub (e.g., transportation, smart cities, health, energy, public safety, and education) so as to advance sector innovation in that region. The final phases will focus on connecting the BD Hubs and their regional sectors into a national Big Data innovation ecosystem. This solicitation is part of NSF’s Big Data program, which includes: research and infrastructure development; education and workforce development; and multi-disciplinary collaborative teams and communities that address complex science and engineering grand challenges. Before preparing a proposal in response to this or any other Big Data solicitation, applicants are strongly encouraged to review those solicitations and consult with cognizant NSF program officers to determine appropriateness of fit. For example, this solicitation funds the establishment and coordination of a BD Hubs National Network, but is not meant to be a source of funding for new research. By contrast, the BIGDATA solicitation may be more relevant for research funding.

Full Proposal: January 27, 2017
Letter of Intent: May 6, 2015
Annual Budget: Upper $2,500,000USD Lower $5,000,000USD

Abstract:

The Physics Frontiers Centers (PFC) program supports university-based centers and institutes where the
collective efforts of a larger group of individuals can enable transformational advances in the most promising
research areas. The program is designed to foster major breakthroughs at the intellectual frontiers of physics by providing needed resources such as combinations of talents, skills, disciplines, and/or specialized infrastructure, not usually available to individual investigators or small groups, in an environment in which the collective efforts of the larger group can be shown to be seminal to promoting significant progress in the science and the education of students.

Activities supported through the program are in all sub-fields of physics within the purview of the Division of Physics: atomic, molecular, optical, plasma, elementary particle, nuclear, astro-, gravitational, and biological physics. Interdisciplinary projects at the interface between these physics areas and other disciplines and physics sub-fields are also included, although the bulk of the effort should fall within one of those areas within the purview of the Physics Division. The successful PFC activity will demonstrate: (1) the potential for a profound advance in physics; (2) creative, substantive activities aimed at enhancing education, diversity, and public outreach; (3) potential for broader impacts, e.g., impacts on other field(s) and benefits to society; (4) a synergy or value-added rationale that justifies a center- or institute-like approach.

Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) Award (R01)

POSTED: September 16, 2015 at 12:06 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: October 26, 2015
Full Proposal: February 27, 2016
Letter of Intent: May 13, 2015
Annual Budget: Upper $250,000 USD

Abstract:

The ONES program is designed to identify outstanding scientists at the formative stages of their career and assist them in launching an innovative research program with a defined impact in the environmental health sciences. These R01 research grants are targeted for researchers who are defined by the NIH as Early Stage Investigators (see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/new_investigators/index.htm )

The ONES program is designed to be highly competitive, and only a limited number are awarded per year.

Research programs supported by this announcement seek to promote career advancement of the most highly creative and promising new scientists who intend to make a long-term career commitment to research in the mainstream of the environmental health sciences, and bring innovative, ground-breaking research initiatives and thinking to bear on the problems of how environmental exposures affect human health.

The ONES Program is specifically targeted to Early Stage Investigators and program goals include career promotion as well as the scientific project proposed. Applications for the ONES program differ from standard R01 applications in that applicants must provide information about their career goals in the environmental health sciences, their previous research experience and achievements, plans for the active participation of an external advisory committee to provide consultation and feedback, the commitment by the institution to actively support the research program development of the Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI), and a plan for career enhancement which will provide a strong foundation for future research endeavors. See Section IV.2 for detailed application instructions.

Research projects proposed in response to this FOA will be expected to have a defined impact on the environmental health sciences and be responsive to both the mission of the NIH and, specifically, to the mission of the NIEHS and the NIEHS 2012-2017 Strategic plan, Advancing Science, Improving Health: A Plan for Environmental Health Sciences Research. This plan sets out a set of strategic themes and strategic goals that have been identified as priority areas for the field of environmental health sciences. These reflect both the mission of the NIEHS, which is to discover how the environment affects people in order to promote healthier lives, and the vision of NIEHS to provide global leadership for innovative research that improves public health by preventing disease and disability.

A variety of scientific disciplines, including basic, mechanistic, clinical, epidemiological, computational, engineering, and/or health risk communication approaches, can be used to advance the NIEHS Strategic Plan. Applicants should consult the strategic plan and to ensure that the research proposed in their application addresses the goals and priority areas of the NIEHS.

Applications submitted in response to this FOA must have a research focus on exposure -health related responses from environmental agents within the mission interest of the NIEHS. The Strategic Plan emphasizes that environmental exposures within the primary mission interest of NIEHS may both manifest effects through direct toxicities and as an element in combined exposures in the totality of all types of human exposure experiences throughout the lifespan.

Environmental agents which are considered of primary interest for NIEHS include: industrial chemicals or manufacturing byproducts, metals, pesticides, herbicides, air pollutants and other inhaled toxicants, particulates or fibers, fungal, and bacterial or biologically derived toxins. Agents that are considered within the primary mission responsibility of other NIH Institutes and Centers include, but are not limited to: alcohol, chemotherapeutic agents, radiation that is not a result of an ambient environmental exposure, smoking, except when considered as a secondary smoke exposure as a component in the indoor environment (particularly in children), drugs of abuse, pharmaceuticals, dietary nutrients, and infectious or parasitic agents. Applications which focus entirely or primarily on these exposure factors will be considered nonresponsive to this announcement and will not proceed to review. However, it is appropriate to include these factors as part of research to define effects of the exposome, and these factors may be a part of applications focused on the totality of a person’s environmental exposure. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NIEHS Scientific/Research staff prior to submission to determine if their project meets the goals of the ONES program.

It is anticipated that the ONES program will be evaluated on a continuing basis by the NIEHS, to assess the impact of the program on the portfolio of the NIEHS, and on the progression of the awardees’ careers. Metrics to be used include, but are not limited to: publications, including numbers, impact factors, citations of publications; academic promotion of the PD/PIs; invited talks at national/international symposia; students and postdoctoral fellows trained in the PD/PI’s laboratory; honors and awards received by the PD/PI; committee service of the PD/PI; and subsequent grant support awarded. The design of the program evaluation will be determined by the Program Analysis Branch of the Division of Extramural Research and Training. PD/PIs awarded ONES grants will be requested to provide information for the evaluation during the period of the award.

Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers (EHS CC) (P30)

POSTED: September 16, 2015 at 12:02 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: December 22, 2015
Full Proposal: April 22, 2016
Letter of Intent: May 13, 2015
Annual Budget: Upper $1,300,000 USD

Abstract:

The NIEHS Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers (EHS CC) Program provides funding for institutional infrastructure to support scientific equipment, facilities, and other resources shared among researchers tackling related environmental health questions. The centers foster interactions among researchers to allow them to take advantage of innovations and approaches beyond what individual scientists would be likely to attain by working independently. As intellectual hubs for environmental health research, the membership of EHS CC’s is expected to be the thought leaders for the field and advance the goals of the NIEHS Strategic Plan (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/about/strategicplan/.)

The overall goals for the EHS CC Program are to enhance the capabilities of existing programs in environmental health sciences, assist with building programmatic and scientific capacity, lead in the development of novel research directions, recruit and groom future leaders in the field, and pioneer efforts in community engagement. An EHS CC must be an identifiable organizational unit within a single university, medical center, or a consortium of cooperating institutions with a university affiliation. The EHS CC grant provides facilities and resources to accelerate research along the spectrum from basic mechanistic and toxicological science to population and public health and dissemination. An EHS CC should foster integration, coordination, and translation by cooperation among investigators conducting high-quality research clearly related to the effects of environmental factors on human health. It should create a structure that allows center members with different expertise to come together in order to answer complex and/or emerging questions leading to improved strategies towards preventing environmentally-induced disorders. In addition, the structure of the Center should facilitate multi-directional interaction with communities. While the EHS CC grant provides support for core resources and facilities, it does not provide direct funding for research projects, although limited funds are provided for pilot projects.

To maximize creativity, flexibility and capitalize on latest scientific trends, the EHS CC Director may develop a dynamic structure which meets the on-going intellectual needs of the members. This structure can change as the intellectual needs change to accommodate new opportunities for collaboration. Research Cores are not required as organizational units but are allowed.

NIEHS considers community engagement and multi-directional communication as essential activities to advance the goals and relevance of an EHS CC. A Community Outreach and Engagement Core is therefore a required component.

To qualify for an EHS CC, the applicant institution must have a base of ongoing, independently supported, peer-reviewed research projects clearly dedicated to the study of environmental health sciences or environmental medicine, a substantial portion of which should be supported by NIEHS. This research base provides the major support for Center members who would benefit from shared resources. The research base must exist prior to the submission of an application and will be considered by program staff. Focus, relevance, interrelationships, quality, productivity, and, to some extent, quantity, are all considerations in judging the adequacy of the research base. See Section IV.2 Application and Submission Information under the Administrative Core component for more detailed description of EHS base support calculation.

Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI: BIC)

POSTED: September 16, 2015 at 12:00 pm

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: September 8, 2015
Full Proposal: January 28, 2016
Letter of Intent: August 19, 2015

Abstract:

National economic and societal prosperity is increasingly more dependent upon research and technology-based innovation. Thus, NSF’s role of supporting fundamental research across all fields of science and engineering has become ever more relevant to economic competitiveness and value creation. The Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI:BIC) program establishes and expands partnerships so that existing research discoveries can provide the motivation and foundation to develop technological areas with high potential for fruitful integration into service systems. These strategic partnerships, which create an academe-industry collaborative culture to build innovation capacity, are in a position to advance and adapt technologies elucidated by human factors research in the context of smart service systems so as to expand as well as realize their market potential.

The Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI:BIC) program supports academe-industry partnerships, which are led by an interdisciplinary academic research team with a least one industry partner to build technological, human, and service system innovation capacity. These partnerships focus on the integration of technologies into a specified human-centered smart service system with the potential to achieve transformational change in an existing service system or to spur an entirely new service system. These technologies have been inspired by existing breakthrough discoveries.

The Partnerships for Innovation: Building Innovation Capacity (PFI:BIC) program supports academe-industry partnerships, which are led by an interdisciplinary academic research team with a least one industry partner to build technological, human, and service system innovation capacity. These partnerships focus on the integration of technologies into a specified human-centered smart service system with the potential to achieve transformational change in an existing service system or to spur an entirely new service system. These technologies have been inspired by existing breakthrough discoveries.

Service systems are socio-technical configurations of people, technologies, organizations, and information designed to deliver services that create and deliver value. A “smart” service system is a system capable of learning, dynamic adaptation, and decision making based upon data received, transmitted, and/or processed to improve its response to a future situation. The system does so through self-detection, self-diagnosing, self-correcting, self-monitoring, self-organizing, self-replicating, or self-controlled functions. These capabilities are the result of the incorporation of technologies for sensing, actuation, coordination, communication, control, etc. The system may exhibit a sequence of features such as detection, classification, and localization that lead to an outcome occurring within a reasonable time.

PFI:BIC funds research partnerships working on projects that operate in the post-fundamental discovery space but precede being on a clear path to commercialization. These projects require additional effort to integrate the technology into a real service system with human factors considerations, which in turn might spawn additional discoveries inspired by this interaction of humans with the technology.

Partnership activities that drive sustained innovation include the targeted allocation of resources such as capital, time, and facilities; and sharing of knowledge in a cross-organizational and interdisciplinary context. The project must involve research tasks that demonstrate a highly collaborative research plan with participation of the primary industrial partner with the academic researcher during the life of the award.

Cultivating smart service systems requires not only the participation of the scientific discipline or disciplines related to the technology, but also of a range of other disciplines needed to achieve successful integration into a smart service system. The resulting system requires an understanding of human interaction with technology and a human-centered design to assure the desirability and the effectiveness of the proposed service system. Thus, in addition to the discipline related to the technology, the disciplines to be included in this project are 1) systems engineering or engineering design, 2) computer science/information technology, and 3) human factors/behavioral science/cognitive engineering. Some teams not experienced with service engineering might benefit from consulting with an individual with expertise in service operations or service systems. NSF recognizes that the labels for the aforementioned disciplines may vary in different institutions and organizations, so what is important here is to demonstrate the equivalence of the representation of these disciplines. The proposer will be asked to show how the disciplines will be integrated in the context of the project as part of the research plan in the Project Description.

Examples of technology applied to service systems include smart healthcare, smart cities, on-demand transportation, precision agriculture, smart infrastructure, and other technologies enabling self-service and customized service solutions.

Abstract:

This program seeks to enhance and expand the national resource of digital data documenting existing vouchered biological and paleontological collections and to advance scientific knowledge by improving access to digitized information (including images) residing in vouchered scientific collections across the United States. The information associated with various collections of organisms, such as geographic, paleogeographic and stratigraphic distribution, environmental habitat data, phenology, information about associated organisms, collector field notes, and tissues and molecular data extracted from the specimens, is a rich resource providing the baseline from which to further biodiversity research and provide critical information about existing gaps in our knowledge of life on earth. The national resource is structured at three levels: a central coordinating organization, a series of thematic networks based on an important research theme, and the physical collections. The national resource builds upon a sizable existing national investment in curation of the physical objects in scientific collections and contributes vitally to scientific research and technology interests in the United States. It will become an invaluable tool in understanding contemporary biological issues and challenges.

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: May 15, 2016
Preliminary Proposal: June 15, 2015
Full Proposal: November 1, 2015

Annual Budget: Research grants should not exceed $1 million. Budget must include near 1:1 matching – matching can include F&A, equipment, personnel, graduate tuition, and operations.

Abstract:

The W.M. Keck Foundation makes grants in support of science and engineering research that is distinctive and novel in its approach. Funding is awarded for projects in science and engineering research that:
• Focus on important and emerging areas of research
• Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies
• Are innovative, distinctive and interdisciplinary
• Demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches or challenge the prevailing paradigm
• Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible, or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem
• Does not focus on clinical or translational research, treatment trials, or research for the sole purpose of drug development
• Fall outside the mission of public funding agencies
• Demonstrate that private philanthropy generally, and the W. M. Keck Foundation in particular, is essential to the project’s success.

It is critical that your idea not be eligible for funding by NSF and NIH. “High Risk” is the mantra of the Keck Foundation. “High-risk” comprises a number of factors, including questions that push the edge of the field, present unconventional approaches to intractable problems, or challenge the prevailing paradigm. The first step in the process is for UD to gather all ideas and submit them as a group to the Keck Foundation. Then, the Foundation will discuss all of the ideas with college deans and/or the vice provost for research to determine the best proposal to move forward.

Single-page concept papers should include:
• An overview of the research proposed emphasizing any unique aspects and pilot studies
• A brief description of the key personnel and methodologies
• A brief justification of the need for Keck support
• An estimated budget broken down by major areas, e.g. personnel, equipment, consumable supplies, etc. (Budgets can be rough approximations at this stage.) You are free to add other details such as background to put the research into perspective, description of the institution’s prominence in the field, etc. if there is room. Avoid illustrations in these single-pagers. The researchers will need all the room for text. If a reference is absolutely necessary, abbreviate it as (Science, 323, 45, ‘11). Please see the Keck website for further information, including examples of funded projectshttp://www.wmkeck.org/grant-programs/research

Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) Award (R01)

POSTED: July 27, 2015 at 6:56 am

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: October 26, 2015

Abstract:

The ONES program is designed to identify outstanding scientists at the formative stages of their career and assist them in launching an innovative research program with a defined impact in the environmental health sciences. These R01 research grants are targeted for researchers who are defined by the NIH as Early Stage Investigators (see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/new_investigators/index.htm .nnThe ONES program is designed to be highly competitive, and only a limited number are awarded per year. Research programs supported by this announcement seek to promote career advancement of the most highly creative and promising new scientists who intend to make a long-term career commitment to research in the mainstream of the environmental health sciences, and bring innovative, ground-breaking research initiatives and thinking to bear on the problems of how environmental exposures affect human health.nnThe ONES Program is specifically targeted to Early Stage Investigators and program goals include career promotion as well as the scientific project proposed. Applications for the ONES program differ from standard R01 applications in that applicants must provide information about their career goals in the environmental health sciences, their previous research experience and achievements, plans for the active participation of an external advisory committee to provide consultation and feedback, the commitment by the institution to actively support the research program development of the Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI), and a plan for career enhancement which will provide a strong foundation for future research endeavors. See Section IV.2 for detailed application instructions. Research projects proposed in response to this FOA will be expected to have a defined impact on the environmental health sciences and be responsive to both the mission of the NIH and, specifically, to the mission of the NIEHS and the NIEHS 2012-2017 Strategic plan, Advancing Science, Improving Health: A Plan for Environmental Health Sciences Research. This plan sets out a set of strategic themes and strategic goals that have been identified as priority areas for the field of environmental health sciences. These reflect both the mission of the NIEHS, which is to discover how the environment affects people in order to promote healthier lives, and the vision of NIEHS to provide global leadership for innovative research that improves public health by preventing disease and disability. nnA variety of scientific disciplines, including basic, mechanistic, clinical, epidemiological, computational, engineering, and/or health risk communication approaches, can be used to advance the NIEHS Strategic Plan. Applicants should consult the strategic plan and to ensure that the research proposed in their application addresses the goals and priority areas of the NIEHS.nnApplications submitted in response to this FOA must have a research focus on exposure -health related responses from environmental agents within the mission interest of the NIEHS. The Strategic Plan emphasizes that environmental exposures within the primary mission interest of NIEHS may both manifest effects through direct toxicities and as an element in combined exposures in the totality of all types of human exposure experiences throughout the lifespan. nnEnvironmental agents which are considered of primary interest for NIEHS include: industrial chemicals or manufacturing byproducts, metals, pesticides, herbicides, air pollutants and other inhaled toxicants, particulates or fibers, fungal, and bacterial or biologically derived toxins. Agents that are considered within the primary mission responsibility of other NIH Institutes and Centers include, but are not limited to: alcohol, chemotherapeutic agents, radiation that is not a result of an ambient environmental exposure, smoking, except when considered as a secondary smoke exposure as a component in the indoor environment (particularly in children), drugs of abuse, pharmaceuticals, dietary nutrients, and infectious or parasitic agents. Applications which focus entirely or primarily on these exposure factors will be considered nonresponsive to this announcement and will not proceed to review. However, it is appropriate to include these factors as part of research to define effects of the exposome, and these factors may be a part of applications focused on the totality of a personu2019s environmental exposure. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NIEHS Scientific/Research staff prior to submission to determine if their project meets the goals of the ONES program. nnIt is anticipated that the ONES program will be evaluated on a continuing basis by the NIEHS, to assess the impact of the program on the portfolio of the NIEHS, and on the progression of the awardees’ careers. Metrics to be used include, but are not limited to: publications, including numbers, impact factors, citations of publications; academic promotion of the PD/PIs; invited talks at national/international symposia; students and postdoctoral fellows trained in the PD/PI’s laboratory; honors and awards received by the PD/PI; committee service of the PD/PI; and subsequent grant support awarded. The design of the program evaluation will be determined by the Program Analysis Branch of the Division of Extramural Research and Training. PD/PIs awarded ONES grants will be requested to provide information for the evaluation during the period of the award.The ONES program is designed to identify outstanding scientists at the formative stages of their career and assist them in launching an innovative research program with a defined impact in the environmental health sciences. These R01 research grants are targeted for researchers who are defined by the NIH as Early Stage Investigators (see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/new_investigators/index.htm.

Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers (EHS CC) (P30)

POSTED: July 27, 2015 at 6:52 am

 

Proposal Summary:

Status: Closed

RO Deadline: February 29, 2016
Full Proposal: May 6, 2016
Letter of Intent: April 6, 2016

Abstract:

The NIEHS Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers (EHS CC) Program provides funding for institutional infrastructure to support scientific equipment, facilities, and other resources shared among researchers tackling related environmental health questions. The centers foster interactions among researchers to allow them to take advantage of innovations and approaches beyond what individual scientists would be likely to attain by working independently. As intellectual hubs for environmental health research, the membership of EHS CC’s is expected to be the thought leaders for the field and advance the goals of the NIEHS Strategic Plan (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/about/strategicplan/.)nnThe overall goals for the EHS CC Program are to enhance the capabilities of existing programs in environmental health sciences, assist with building programmatic and scientific capacity, lead in the development of novel research directions, recruit and groom future leaders in the field, and pioneer efforts in community engagement. An EHS CC must be an identifiable organizational unit within a single university, medical center, or a consortium of cooperating institutions with a university affiliation. The EHS CC grant provides facilities and resources to accelerate research along the spectrum from basic mechanistic and toxicological science to population and public health and dissemination. An EHS CC should foster integration, coordination, and translation by cooperation among investigators conducting high-quality research clearly related to the effects of environmental factors on human health. It should create a structure that allows center members with different expertise to come together in order to answer complex and/or emerging questions leading to improved strategies towards preventing environmentally-induced disorders. In addition, the structure of the Center should facilitate multi-directional interaction with communities. While the EHS CC grant provides support for core resources and facilities, it does not provide direct funding for research projects, although limited funds are provided for pilot projects.nnTo maximize creativity, flexibility and capitalize on latest scientific trends, the EHS CC Director may develop a dynamic structure which meets the on-going intellectual needs of the members. This structure can change as the intellectual needs change to accommodate new opportunities for collaboration. Research Cores are not required as organizational units but are allowed. nnNIEHS considers community engagement and multi-directional communication as essential activities to advance the goals and relevance of an EHS CC. A Community Outreach and Engagement Core is therefore a required component. nnTo qualify for an EHS CC, the applicant institution must have a base of ongoing, independently supported, peer-reviewed research projects clearly dedicated to the study of environmental health sciences or environmental medicine, a substantial portion of which should be supported by NIEHS. This research base provides the major support for Center members who would benefit from shared resources. The research base must exist prior to the submission of an application and will be considered by program staff. Focus, relevance, interrelationships, quality, productivity, and, to some extent, quantity, are all considerations in judging the adequacy of the research base. See Section IV.2 Application and Submission Information under the Administrative Core component for more detailed description of EHS base support calculation.
