NIGMS to Grant up to $10M Per Year for Three Systems Biology Studies

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institute of General Medical Sciences plans to grant as much as $10 million in 2008 for up to three new or renewal grants to advance systems biology projects including bioinformatics and genetics.
The National Centers for Systems Biology grants will support studies focused on bioinformatics, genetics and development biology, computational biology, molecular and cell biology, pharmacology, and other biomedical inquiries.
NIGMS said applicants may apply for $2 million per year for up to five years, or may request more than that for the initial purchase of equipment with proper approval. Total costs are expected to be $10 million per year. Because the subjects of investigation may vary widely, NIGMS said, the funding levels applied for or granted may vary.
NIGMS said the earliest start date for projects will be July 1, 2008. Initial letters of intent are due Sept. 21, 2007, and applications are due Oct. 22, 2007.
