Space Biology: Animal Studies
NNH21ZDA001N-SBAS
Full announcement
This new program element, E.11 Space Biology: Animal Studies, specifically solicits proposals for investigations that characterize how animals respond to stressors in spaceflight or spaceflight-like environments. In general, the Space Biology Program focuses on research that will increase NASA's understanding of how living systems respond to the unique environments that are encountered during space exploration, including the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) environment inside the International Space Station (ISS) and deep space conditions beyond LEO, including transit to and maintenance in Lunar and Martian environments. This program element funding opportunity solicits three different Project Types: Research Investigations (RI), Early Career Investigations (ECI), and Gene Lab Analytical Investigations (GLAI) pertaining to animal and related studies.

NARMS Cooperative Agreement Program to Strengthen Antibiotic Resistance Surveillance in Retail Food Specimens (U01) Clinical Trials Not Allowed
PAR-20-124
Full announcement
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), builds upon the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) which was initiated in 1996 as one of the key activities in a national action plan to combat antibiotic resistance threats. The purpose of this FOA is to protect and promote public health by enhancing, strengthening and sustaining antibiotic resistance surveillance in retail food specimens within the NARMS program. The NARMS cooperative agreements is intended to improve the detection of antibiotic resistance among bacteria in food commodities, as well as expand to new sites to expand the scope of sampling. Measurable outcomes of the program will be in alignment with the NARMS Objectives. May 3, 2022

Refugee Agricultural Partnership Program
HHS-2022-ACF-ORR-ZR-0056
Full announcement
The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), announces funding for the Refugee Agricultural Partnership Program (RAPP). Organizations funded under RAPP implement strategies that encourage the development of agricultural and food systems related services that will improve the livelihoods, physically and economically, of refugee families. These strategies work to provide sustainable and/or supplemental income, improved access to healthy foods and better nutrition, psychosocial development, and enhanced integration into communities by refugee families. Allowable activities under RAPP include, but are not limited to: 1) Agricultural production: 2) Marketing for agricultural produce; and 3) Training and Technical Assistance in the areas of agricultural production, marketing, business management, health, and nutrition.

Leading Culture Change Through Professional Societies of Biology (BIO-LEAPS)
22-542
Full announcement
The Leading Culture Change through Professional Societies of Biology (BIO-LEAPS) program aims to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the biological sciences broadly by leveraging the leadership, broad reach, and unique ability of professional societies to create culture change in the life sciences. The Directorate for Biological Sciences at the National Science Foundation (NSF BIO) recognizes that culture change in the biological sciences is an urgent priority because it is foundational to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the discipline. The culture of a scientific discipline —defined here as the shared values, norms, traditions, and practices —can be thought of as an emergent property that results from years of experiences and interactions among scientists, their institutions, their professional societies, and their networks. It is increasingly recognized that the perceptions and attitudes of that culture can be quite variable for different individuals and are often negative for individuals historically excluded from the sciences (e.g., based on gender, gender identity, disability status, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, the intersections of these, and others) July 1, 2022

RFA 21-2 Walter A. Rosenblith New Investigator Award
-
Full announcement
HEI established the Walter A. Rosenblith New Investigator Award to provide funding for outstanding investigators who are beginning independent research. By providing financial support for investigators at this early point in their careers, HEI hopes to encourage highly qualified individuals to undertake research on the health effects of air pollution. The candidates may have training and experience in any of the many branches of science relevant to air pollution. Each award will be a maximum of $500,000 for three years in total costs to support a research project. The funds can be used to provide salary support for the investigator and supporting junior personnel and operating costs, including supplies and equipment. It is expected that the investigator will devote at least 25% of their time on the proposed research. HEI expects to provide one or two awards from this RFA each year. September 23, 2022
