Detection and quantification of allergens in foods and minimum eliciting doses in food allergic individuals – European Food Safety Authority
Specific objectives of the call:
1. Develop reference (harmonised) methodologies for the detection and quantification of allergens in foods, preferably in highly processed foods, which allow the comparison of results across laboratories. The comparability of results obtained by using the developed methodologies shall be demonstrated by the participating laboratories.
2. Generate good quality data on Minimum Eliciting Doses (MED) and Minimum Observed Eliciting Doses (MOED) for allergenic foods subject to mandatory labelling (except peanuts, eggs, milk, and hazelnuts) in food allergic individuals (both in adults and in children). Data should be obtained in dosefinding studies using appropriate protocols.

Federal funding agencies
Juvenile protective factors and their effects on ageing (R01) – NIH; The National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Child Health and Development
This call supports descriptive studies identifying putative juvenile protective factors, experimental studies testing hypotheses about their effects on ageing and translational studies exploring the potential risks and benefits of maintaining or modulating the level of juvenile protective factors in adult life. Juvenile protective factors are physiological factors that maintain or enhance certain functions across all or some stages of postnatal development, but which diminish or disappear during transitions between developmental stages. This FOA is uniquely focused on studies which involve comparisons between juvenile and adult states, or between stages of postnatal development to identify putative JPFs and their effects on ageing.
Closing dates: Applications open on 5 May 2017 and are due by 5pm local time of applicant organisation every 5 March, 5 July and 5 November until 6 March 2020.
Research projects to enhance applicability of mammalian models for translational research (R01) -- NIH: National Cancer Institute, US
This funding opportunity supports research demonstrating that mammalian models or their derivatives used for translational research are robust representations of human biology, are appropriate to test questions of clinical importance, and provide reliable information for patients’ benefit.
Closing dates: Applications open 5 May 2017 and close 5pm local time of the applicant organisation every 5 March, 5 July and 5 November until 8 May 2020.
