Deadlines

September 8
Application deadline for NIH's Shared Neurobiology of Fragile X Syndrome and Autism grant, which will award funds to study the neurobiology of patients with both FXS and autism and to identify novel drug targets for these diseases.

September 8
Application deadline for the Directed Stem Cell Differentiation for Cell-Based Therapies for Heart, Lung, and Blood, and Aging Diseases grant. This NIH award is for researchers to study the differentiation of embryonic or adult stem or progenitor cells, either in vitro or in vivo.

September 8
Application deadline for the Pilot Studies in Pancreatic Cancer grant. This funding from NIH will support multidisciplinary research of pancreatic cancer, including studies on genetic causes, biomarkers, and the identification of new drug targets.

September 8
Application deadline for the Development of Biomarkers for Mental Health Research and Clinical Utilities grant from NIH. This award supports research and development of commercializable biomarker technologies relevant to mental disorders.

September 22
Application deadline for the CISE Computing Research Infrastructure program. This NSF award will fund the creation, enhancement, and operation of world-class computing research infrastructure.

September 25
Application deadline for the NIH award for Application of Emerging Technologies for Cancer Research. This grant will fund the development of technologies, including tools and instrumentation, for cancer-relevant molecular analyses in vitro, in situ, and/or in vivo. This grant is part of the broader NCI-sponsored Innovative Molecular Analysis Technologies program.

September 25
Application deadline for the Innovative Technology Solutions to Cancer Sample Preparation grant. This NIH award, also part of the NCI's IMAT program, will support technology development in preparing, purifying, processing, and handling cancer-relevant samples for molecular analyses.
