Deadline:  Depends on program


Dear Colleague Letter: UKRI/BBSRC- NSF/BIO Lead Agency Opportunity in Bioinformatics, Microbiome, Quantum Biology and Synthetic Biology/Synthetic Cell

Link: https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2019/nsf19058/nsf19058.jsp?WT.mc_id=USNSF_25&WT.mc_ev=click
Limited Submission: No

Description

The lead agency opportunity allows US and UK researchers to submit a single proposal describing a project involving US and UK researchers, that will undergo a single review process by the lead agency, on behalf of both NSF/BIO and UKRI/BBSRC. In 2019 proposals will be accepted for US-UK collaborative projects in the areas of intersection between NSF/BIO and UKRI/BBSRC as set out in the notice of intentions. Proposals must address the priorities of both UKRI/BBSRC and participating NSF/BIO Divisions. Proposers must provide a clear rationale for the need for a US-UK collaboration, including the unique expertise and synergy that the collaborating groups will bring to the project. Proposers should note that the lead agency opportunity does not represent a new source of funding. Proposals will be assessed in competition with all others submitted to normal solicitations/responsive mode round, and outcomes will be subject to both success in merit review and the availability of funds from both UKRI/BBSRC and NSF/BIO

 

Deadline: Based on deadline of the target program; an LOI must be submitted in advance and an invitation to submit must be received

NIH Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): The Application of Big Data Analytics to Drug Abuse Research

Link: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-DA-19-041.html
Limited Submission: No

Description

The purpose of this Notice is to inform potential applications to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to encourage grant applications that will use ‘big data’ analytics to reveal deeper or novel insights into the biological and behavioral processes associated with substance use and addiction by developing more powerful analytical methods and visualization tools that can help capture the richness of different data types and across scales of analysis; including molecular, clinical, and electronic health records. Applications should develop and/or utilize computational approaches for analyzing large, complex datasets acquired from drug addiction research.

Submission deadlines vary.
