Deadlines

February 6

Abstract submission deadline for the 57th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry.

February 7

Application deadline for the NHLBI Pediatric Cardiac Genomics Consortium. This money will fund clinical and translational research into the genetic causes of congenital heart disease and genetic contributions to outcome in people with congenital heart disease.

February 13

Abstract submission deadline for the Biology of Genomes conference.

February 24

Application deadline for the Limited Competition: Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Alcoholism NIH grant. This award goes to research into the genetic variants behind alcoholism. Only investigators currently supported under the COGA study may apply.

February 28

Application deadline for the NIH grant, SBIR Phase II Bridge Awards to Accelerate the Development of New Cancer Therapies and Cancer Imaging Technologies Toward Commercialization. The award can be used to bridge the funding gap between NIH SBIR Phase II projects for cancer therapies and cancer imaging technologies and the commercialization stage of these projects.

March 6

Application deadline for the Development of Disease Biomarkers NIH grant. The money will go toward studies that aim to validate candidate biomarkers for well-defined human diseases of liver, kidney, urological tract, digestive and hematologic systems, and endocrine and metabolic disorders, diabetes and its complications, and obesity.

March 6

Application deadline for the Proteomics: Diabetes, Obesity, and Endocrine, Digestive, Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases NIH grant. This grant is for research into protein expression, post-translational modifications, and protein-protein interactions in diabetes, obesity, endocrine and metabolic diseases, nutritional function and diseases of the alimentary tract, exocrine pancreas, liver, kidney, bladder, and prostate.

The Scan

Call to Look Again

More than a dozen researchers penned a letter in Science saying a previous investigation into the origin of SARS-CoV-2 did not give theories equal consideration.

Not Always Trusted

In a new poll, slightly more than half of US adults have a great deal or quite a lot of trust in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Hill reports.

Identified Decades Later

A genetic genealogy approach has identified "Christy Crystal Creek," the New York Times reports.

Science Papers Report on Splicing Enhancer, Point of Care Test for Sexual Transmitted Disease

In Science this week: a novel RNA structural element that acts as a splicing enhancer, and more.
