Deadlines

July 9 — Full proposal target date for NSF program: Biological Databases and Informatics (05-557), a program that supports the development of new bioinformatics approaches to manage, analyze, and communicate data.

July 10 — Application deadline for the National Gene Vector Biorepository and Coordinating Center grant (RFA-RR-07-002). This program aims to fund a facility to store gene vector materials, including samples from humans who have undergone gene therapy and to develop a pharmacology-toxicology database.
 
July 12 — Full proposal target date for the Biomolecular Systems Cluster (PD 04-1144) from NSF. This program is interested in research at the intersection of biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, and engineering.

July 12 — Full proposal target date for the Genes and Genome System Cluster (PD 04-1112) from NSF. This program supports research into the regulation and maintenance processes of DNA, RNA, and protein structure, expression, and stability.

July 19 — Full proposal deadline for the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program (05-579). This program supports young faculty members who combine research and education.
 
July 26 — Abstract submission deadline for the December American Society for Cell Biology Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

August 9 — Application deadline for the Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program Era of Hope Scholar Award (W81XWH-07-BCRP-EOHS). Invited applicants should spent half of their research time on breast cancer and should be pursuing an innovative approach to breast cancer research.

September 1 — Application deadline for the Cross-Disciplinary Translational Research at NIH grant (PA-06-321). This program is interested in projects that will translate tools and resources from the bench to the clinic to prevent and treat diseases and conditions.
