National Institutes of Health (NIH) – see limited submissions section below for additional NIH opportunities
This FOA will use the NIH Resource-Related Research Project (R24) mechanism to facilitate the development of research networks to advance research on the basic biology of aging in health disparities. The infrastructure-building aspect of this FOA will be to establish collaborations for subsequent research on the biology of aging underlying health disparities. The intention is to provide a platform for discovery and pilot projects to establish feasibility of novel approaches to be used by these collaborations. For this FOA, the key human population feature of health disparities is accelerated aging.
- Awards: Up to $300,000 for 4 years.
- Deadline: Letters of intent due September 18, 2019
National Science Foundation (NSF) – see limited submissions section below for additional NSF opportunities
The Mathematical Biology Program supports research in areas of applied and computational mathematics with relevance to the biological sciences. Successful proposals are mathematically innovative and address challenging problems of interest to members of the biological community.
Some projects of interest to the Mathematical Biology Program may include development of mathematical concepts and tools traditionally seen in other disciplinary programs within the Division of Mathematical Sciences, e.g., topology, probability, statistics, computational mathematics, etc. To receive appropriate and timely review, such proposals should be submitted directly to the relevant disciplinary program that has the earliest deadline, with other program(s) selected as secondary. Note that proposals that use established mathematical and computational tools to address problems in the biological sciences are typically not appropriate for submission to DMS. For further details on other disciplinary programs within DMS, see the corresponding program descriptions.
- Awards: Please contact program officer.
- Deadline: September 5, 2019
