Emerging Questions in Cancer Systems Biology (U01)
PAR-16-131
Full announcement

Full proposal (letter of intent was due 5/23/2018).  The CSBC initiative aims to address challenges in cancer research through the use of experimental biology or population science combined with in silico modeling, multi-dimensional data analysis, and systems engineering.  This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites cooperative agreement applications for Research Projects that utilize systems biology approaches to address emerging questions in cancer initiation, progression, and treatment. CSBC Research Projects are expected to involve interdisciplinary teams of physical scientists (e.g., engineers, chemists, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists, population scientists, statisticians, epidemiologists) and cancer researchers (e.g., cancer biologists, oncologists, pathologists and clinicians in relevant disciplines) who collaborate to advance our understanding of cancer biology and oncology. CSBC Research Projects proposed in response to this FOA must demonstrate explicit integration of experimental biology and computational modeling to test and validate novel hypotheses in cancer research.

Academic Research Enhancement Award (Parent R15)
PA-18-504
Full announcement

$300,000
The purpose of the Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) program is to stimulate research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation's research scientists, but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. AREA grants create opportunities for scientists and institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH research programs to contribute to the Nation's biomedical and behavioral research effort. AREA grants are intended to support small-scale research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible, domestic institutions, to expose undergraduate and/or graduate students to meritorious research projects, and to strengthen the research environment of the applicant institution.The research project must involve undergraduate (preferably, if available) and/or graduate students in the proposed research. Students’ involvement in research may include participation in the design of experiments and controls, collection and analysis of data, execution and troubleshooting of experiments, presentation at meetings, drafting journal articles, collaborative interactions, participation in lab meetings to discuss results and future experiments, etc.
