Time to Head Over to the Physics Building to Find a Buddy

At the NIGMS Feedback Loop blog, Peter Lyster notes that the National Institute of General Medical Sciences and other NIH institutes are part of two new funding opportunities that are trying to bring biomedical and physical scientists together. One focuses on translational research. Namely, it "encourages investigators from these disciplines and other research areas to partner with clinical researchers to translate promising laboratory concepts into the clinic." The second encourages new discovery work. "By bridging these scientific disciplines, this program aims to support cutting-edge science that has the potential to open up entirely new avenues for biomedical studies," Lyster says.
