ReSource
HR001119S0084
Full announcement

The goal of the ReSource program is to provide the military with an integrated system to convert plastics, and other energy-dense waste, into food and other strategic chemicals. Developed technologies should function in austere environments to extend long-term missions by engaging single-use wastes and scavenged materials as feedstock, consequently decreasing the logistic burdens and risks associated with delivery of supplies.

NCI Outstanding Investigator Award
PAR - 19-349
Full announcement

The purpose of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Outstanding Investigator Award is to provide long-term support and increased flexibility for investigators with outstanding records of research productivity to continue or to embark upon a research program of unusual potential in cancer. Candidates for the OIA must be nominated by their applicant organization. Special features of the OIA include 7-year project periods; the expectation that the OIA PD/PI commit at least 6 person months effort to the OIA; the expectation of clear and substantial Institutional commitment to the PD/PI, for example, providing 20% of salary support; and that PD/PIs will be expected to renegotiate their time and effort on all other grant support, including NIH grants, in order to accommodate the OIA level of effort.

Environmental Risks for Psychiatric Disorders: Biological Basis of Pathophysiology (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
PAR 19-386
Full announcement

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research to understand the biological basis by which environmental exposures alter brain and behavioral functioning to increase risk for psychiatric disorders with onset in late-childhood, adolescence or early adulthood. A range of approaches are encouraged, from mechanistic experiments using whole organism models or in vitro and in vivo systems to human studies that add new data collection activities and/or make use of extant data or biospecimens. Investigations that further advance our understanding of the joint contribution of genes and environment in the risk for psychiatric disorders are welcomed. Applications should address either categorically defined psychiatric diagnoses and/or continuous traits expressed in the general population. Applicants are encouraged to propose studies that consider co-occurring psychiatric conditions and potential shared etiologies. It is anticipated that knowledge gained from the research supported by this FOA will inform the development of improved intervention, prevention and/or therapeutic strategies. This FOA will use the NIH Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism and runs in parallel with another FOA, PAR-20-NNN, which encourages applications under the R21 mechanism.
