Enabling Technologies to Accelerate Development of Oral Biodevices (R01 and R21, Clinical Trial Not Allowed) (link) – This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications that propose transformative engineering solutions to technical challenges associated with new development, substantial optimization of existing technologies and clinical translation of intraoral biodevices. Proposed technologies are expected to advance development of oral biodevices for clinical use, including but not limited to: precision medicine-based detection, diagnosis and treatment of oral and overall health conditions, and measurement of patient functional status and clinical outcome assessment. Areas of interest in this FOA include engineering approaches that allow integration of electronic, physical, and biological systems into functional biodevices that are safe and effective for detection, diagnosis and treatment of oral and systemic disease. Products of this research will be functional biodevices and integrated approaches thoroughly characterized to demonstrate preclinical safety and effective performance in support of specific intended clinical applications. To streamline the development of oral biodevices that advance precision medicine-based approaches in clinical practice, this FOA encourages interdisciplinary collaborations across engineering, multifunctional sensors, pharmacology, chemistry, medicine, and dentistry, as well as between academia and industry.
- Companion Funding Opportunity:PAR-20-232 – Enabling Technologies to Accelerate Development of Oral Biodevices (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

- Awards: Award size will range from $200,000 to $400,000.
- Deadline: LOI due Aug. 14, 2020; Full Proposal due Sept. 15, 2020.
- IMPORTANT WEBCAST: NSF and NIST will hold an informational webcast on August 3, 2020, to discuss the DRRG program and answer questions about this solicitation. More details about the webcast will be posted at https://www.nist.gov/el/disaster-resilience/disaster-resilience-federal-funding-opportunity-ffo as they become available. The webcast will be archived and available for viewing for at least 3 months following the event.
Developmental Sciences (DS) (link) – DS supports basic research that increases our understanding of cognitive, linguistic, social, cultural, and biological processes related to human development across the lifespan. Research supported by this program will add to our knowledge of the underlying developmental processes that support social, cognitive, and behavioral functioning, thereby illuminating ways for individuals to live productive lives as members of society.
- Awards: A typical project funded through the DS program is approximately 3 years in duration with a total cost budget, including both direct and indirect costs, between $100,000 and $200,000 per year.
- Deadline: July 15, 2020
Social Psychology (link) – The Social Psychology Program at NSF supports research and research infrastructure to advance basic knowledge in social psychology. Projects funded by the Social Psychology Program support the NSF mission to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; and to secure the national defense. Proposals considered by the Social Psychology Program must communicate both the intellectual merit of the science and its broader societal impacts. Proposed research should carry strong potential for creating transformative advances in the basic understanding of human social behavior. Interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and convergent research approaches are encouraged.
- Deadline: July 15, 2020
