Calendar of Meetings, Deadlines & Workshops: Oct 1, 2005



October 1 — NIH standard deadline for new research grants, research career awards, education (R25) grants, program project grants, and center grants.

October 3 — Abstract submission deadline for PAG XIV, the annual plant and animal genomics conference held in San Diego next January. Abstracts must be no more than 250 words.

October 3 — Abstract submission deadline for the 45th annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology, which will be held in March in San Diego.

October 5 — Deadline to apply for funding from NSF for the Instrument Development for Biological Research Program, which supports new or improved instrumentation “likely to have a significant impact on the study of biological systems at any level.”

October 10 — Letters of intent are due in response to NIH RFA PAR-05-163, The Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) program. NHGRI and NIMH intend to support 10 CEGS as P50 specialized centers and an unfixed number of projects under its P20 planning grant mechanism through 2007.

October 14 — Deadline to submit poster abstracts for the 2006 AUTM annual meeting, to be held March 2-4 in Orlando. Poster topics should be directly related to technology transfer issues, according to the organizers.

November 1 — Full proposals due for NSF solicitation 05-603, the Plant Genome Research Program. This year NSF will focus on “major unanswered questions in plant biology on a genome-wide scale”; translational research from model organisms to economically important plants; and development of technology “to enable discovery in plant genomics.”

November 1 — Abstract submission opens for the US HUPO Second Annual Symposium to be held in Boston next March.

November 14 — Abstract submission deadline for the AACR 2006 annual meeting to be held in Washington, DC, next April.

November 29 — Complete proposals due for NIBIB-NSF program solicitation 05-611, the Bioengineering and Bioinformatics Summer Institutes Program. It is expected that 15 standard or continuing grants will be made in FY 2006 for programs to begin in the summer of 2006.

December 1 — Deadline to fill out survey on DNA fragment analysis for the related research group of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities. Findings will be presented at ABRF 2006.

December 9 — Abstract submission deadline for the American College of Medical Genetics’ Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting, scheduled for late March in San Diego.


January 9 — Proposals due for NSF PD04-1127, a program in population and evolutionary processes that includes evolutionary genetics research. Apply through FastLane.
