Deadlines

March 11 Deadline to apply for NSF's Ethics Education in Science and Engineering grant to fund research and education projects that improve ethics education in science, especially in interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and international contexts.

March 11 Abstract submission deadline for Cold Spring Harbor Asia Conferences' Translational approaches to cancer meeting to be held in Suzhou, China, in May.

March 16 Abstract submission deadline for the Human Proteome Organization's 2011 World Congress to be held in Geneva in September.

March 17 Poster submission deadline for Select Biosciences' Advances in qPCR conference to be held in Boston in April.

March 24 Abstract submission deadline for the Genetics Society of America's 18th International C. elegans Meeting to be held in Los Angeles in June.

March 28 Deadline to apply for NSF's Assembling the Tree of Life grant to develop a framework phylogeny for all major lineages of life involving large teams working across institutions and disciplines.

March 31 Abstract submission deadline for Select Biosciences' Cancer Proteomics conference to be held in Dublin in June.

April 18 Deadline to apply for NIH's Personalized Genomics for Symptom Management: Bridging the Gaps from Genomic Discovery to Improved Health Outcomes grant to use basic genomic discoveries to prevent and alleviate symptoms in patients suffering from chronic disorders.
