Blueprint for neuroscience research – dynamic neuroimmune interactions in the transition from normal central nervous system function to disorders (R01)—14 NIH Institutes, US
This supports neuroscience-related research, with the aim of accelerating discoveries and reducing the burden of nervous system disorders. The purpose is to transform the understanding of how dynamic interactions among multiple cell types involved in neuroimmune interactions, such as neurons, glia cells, neurovascular units, or other neuroimmune components, mediate the transition from normal central nervous system (CNS) function to disorder conditions. The call encourages projects that combine diverse expertise and use innovative approaches to address these questions at the molecular, cellular, and circuitry levels.
Closing dates: Letter of intent due November 7, 2017; application due December 7, 2017, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
BRAIN initiative – proof of concept development of early stage next generation human brain imaging (R01 – clinical trials not allowed) – 10 NIH Institutes, US
This supports early-stage development of entirely new and novel non-invasive human brain imaging technologies and methods that lead to transformative advances in the understanding of the human brain. This call solicits unusually bold and potentially transformative approaches and supports small scale, proof of concept development based on exceptionally innovative, original and unconventional concepts. Applications may propose early stage development of entirely new concepts for next generation human brain imaging
Closing dates: Letter of intent due December 20, 2016; application due February 1, 2017, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Toward a next-generation trauma care capability: foundational research for autonomous, unmanned, and robotics development of medical technologies (FORwARD) award – Department of Defense, US
This supports innovation in the state-of-the-art and basic, foundational, and ground-breaking research in technologies, including biologically-inspired models of cognitive computing, neural networks, environmental sensing and other approaches to adaptive, autonomous inference generation and artificial intelligence in the medical domain to dramatically advance first responder or point of injury trauma care and outcomes. Applications must address one of the following topic areas:
• autonomous and unmanned medical capability – Identify novel ideas, approaches and research towards the conceptualisation of autonomous and unmanned technologies for next-generation, high-quality medical capabilities with limited or absent medical care personnel, or personnel with limited skills;
• medical robotics research – Identify novel ideas, approaches and research towards the conceptualisation of medical robotics and real-time tele-presence capabilities exploring the limits of machine perception for tele-robotic semi-autonomous and autonomous trauma care within remote and dispersed geographic settings.
Closing dates: Pre-applications due by 5pm ET, 20 November 2017; applications due by 11.59pm ET, 5 February 2018.
Toward a next-generation trauma care capability: foundational research for autonomous, unmanned, and robotics development of medical technologies (FORwARD) award – Department of Defense, US (FOA): W81XWH-17-MSISRP-FOR
Healthy minds for adolescent mothers – achieving healthy outcomes for the family -- Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, US
This seeks bold ideas that meet the mental health needs of the poorest and most vulnerable adolescent and young mothers. Projects should have innovative approaches that leverage technology, social groups and social media to develop the skills and protective factors necessary to successfully navigate life, transition to motherhood, and early detection and treatment of mental health disorders. Funding for seed and transition-to-scale projects will be considered.
Closing date: 8 NOV 2017 - 11:30AM PST
Established investigator academic-industry partnership awards - Melanoma Research Alliance, US
These aim to enhance translational melanoma research by extending academic capabilities to clinical investigations and to facilitate interactions between the academic and industrial research sectors. Projects must be supported by preliminary data. The special emphasis areas are:
•addressing treatment failures or difficult-to-treat disease, which may include rare melanoma subtypes or metastatic brain disease, by undertaking studies leading to new targets and rational treatment approaches;
•informing logical and optimal combination therapies, therapeutic sequences, or treatment regimens, including defining dose or duration of targeted an immunotherapies;
•developing markers of response, resistance, or risk of recurrence or death in early stage disease to improve clinical decision-making and speed the development of new melanoma therapies in the neoadjuvant, adjuvant, or advanced setting;
•identifying new targets, treatments, or biomarkers by leveraging data, including clinical, genomics, and immunologic, that may include the study of exceptional responders or non-responders.
PIs must hold a full-time faculty appointment at the level of assistant professor or equivalent or above at an academic or other non-profit research institution within or outside the US. Industry scientists may serve as co-investigators or collaborators, but may not be PIs.
Awards are worth up to USD 100,000 per year for two to three years. This must be matched or exceeded by industry funds or in-kind support.
