April 11 — Formal applications are due for the NIH’s Genome Sequencing Centers, RFA-HG-06-001. This renewal of NHGRI’s large-scale sequencing program entails awards of up to $420 million in total costs over four years at not more than $130 million per year. The agencies expect to award three to five grants.
April 11 — Applications are due for the NCI Clinical Proteomic Technologies Initiative’s RFA-CA-07-005, Advanced Proteomic Platforms and Computational Sciences. This funding initiative supports highly innovative research in the quantitative analysis of proteins and peptides of interest in clinical cancer studies.
April 17 — Abstract submission deadline for the 20th Annual Symposium of the Protein Society.
April 21 — Applications are due for RFA-CA-07-012, Clinical Proteomic Technology Assessment for Cancer (U24), the NCI/NIH program to establish up to five Clinical Proteomic Technology Assessment for Cancer teams. Each CPTAC team will consist of multidisciplinary scientists focused on enhancing proteomic measurement capabilities for clinical cancer research.
April 26 — Due date for letters of intent regarding RFA-CA-07-002, Application of Emerging Technologies for Cancer Research, an NCI program for projects evaluating the emerging molecular technologies that are ready for application to cancer research questions. Applications are due May 26.
April 26 — Letters of intent due for NCI’s RFA-CA-06-002, Innovative Technologies for Molecular Analysis of Cancer, which concerns research projects proposing the development of highly innovative cancer relevant molecular technologies.
