Innovative Molecular and Cellular Analysis Technologies for Basic and Clinical Cancer Research (R21 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)
RFA-CA-20-017
Full announcement

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits grant applications proposing exploratory research projects focused on the early-stage development of highly innovative technologies offering novel molecular or cellular analysis capabilities for basic or clinical cancer research. The emphasis of this FOA is on supporting the development of novel capabilities involving a high degree of technical innovation for targeting, probing, or assessing molecular and cellular features of cancer biology. Well-suited applications must offer the potential to accelerate and/or enhance research in the areas of cancer biology, early detection and screening, clinical diagnosis, treatment, control, epidemiology, and/or address issues associated with cancer health disparities. Technologies proposed for development may be intended to have widespread applicability but must be focused on improving molecular and/or cellular characterizations of cancer biology.

Dear Colleague Letter: Hydrologic Sciences and Physical and Dynamic Meteorology Cooperation
N/A - NSF
Full announcement

To encourage interactions between the Hydrologic Science and Physical and Dynamic Meteorology research communities in advancing this critical research, a community workshop was held 3-5 September, 2014 in Golden, Colorado. The purpose of this workshop was to motivate and accelerate progress on hydrometeorological-hydroclimatic-ecohydrological process understanding across the terrestrial-atmospheric boundary, and especially the integration of common research interests of hydrology and meteorology. The results of the meeting are reported in a white paper that can be accessed via the link above. Within this context, innovative proposals that specifically address challenges existing at the atmospheric-terrestrial boundary, including challenges in process understanding, measurement and modeling can be sent to either program. Topical areas are suggested in the referenced white paper, however this document does not define all possible research areas across this boundary. Proposals in this area of research will be co-reviewed by both programs and will be supported from existing programmatic funds. Proposals are accepted at any time in both the PDM and HS programs. If you have a research topic that you think would be of interest, please contact the program officers in either group.

Ethical and Responsible Research
19-609
Full announcement

Ethical and Responsible Research (ER2) funds research projects that identify (1) factors that are effective in the formation of ethical STEM researchers and (2) approaches to developing those factors in all STEM fields that NSF supports. ER2 solicits proposals for research that explores the following: ‘What constitutes responsible conduct for research (RCR), and which cultural and institutional contexts promote ethical STEM research and practice and why?' Do certain labs have a ‘culture of academic integrity'? What practices contribute to the establishment and maintenance of ethical cultures and how can these practices be transferred, extended to, and integrated into other research and learning settings?’

EHR Core Research (ECR): Building Capacity in STEM Education Research
20-521
Full announcement

ECR’s Building Capacity for STEM Education Research (ECR: BCSER) solicitation supports projects that build individuals’ capacity to carry out high quality STEM education research that will enhance the nation’s STEM education enterprise and broaden the pool of researchers that can conduct fundamental research in STEM learning and learning environments, broadening participation in STEM fields, and STEM workforce development. Specifically, ECR: BCSER supports activities that enable early and mid-career researchers to acquire the requisite expertise and skills to conduct rigorous fundamental research in STEM education. ECR: BCSER seeks to fund research career development activities on topics that are relevant to qualitative and quantitative research methods and design, including the collection and analysisof new qualitative or quantitative data, secondary analyses using extant datasets, or meta-analyses.

Understanding the Rules of Life
20-513
Full announcement

URoL:MTM projects must integrate perspectives and research approaches from more than one research discipline (e.g.,biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geosciences, mathematics, physics, social and behavioral sciences).They must also incorporate best practices regarding protocol documentation, sample selection, data collection and analysis, model/algorithm development, as well as data sharing and accessibility. The interdisciplinary scope of URoL:MTM projects should provide unique training and outreach opportunities to train the next generation of scientists in a diversity of scientific approaches and to engage society more generally. URoL:MTM supports basic science research projects of different scales and scope. The URoL:MTM Program offers two submission tracks: Track 1 for projects with a total budget of up to $500,000 and an award duration of up to 3 years and Track 2 for projects with a total budget of up to $3,000,000 and award duration of up to 5 years.
