Announcements

Major Change to NIH SBIR/STTR Dates (Retroactive to Dec 5, 2014):

The NIH has just announced a major change to its SBIR/STTR proposal date cycle. In this case a "cycle" is synonymous with a proposal receipt date.

The NIH is extending their current PHS 2014-02 Omnibus Solicitation (PA-14-071) from 3 cycles to 4. That means the "non-aids" topics (whose 3rd cycle ended Dec 5, 2014) now has an additional 4th cycle with a receipt date of April 5, 2015. Likewise, the AIDS topics (whose 3rd cycle ends Jan 7, 2015) has a 4th cycle receipt date of May 7, 2015. This includes CDC, FDA and ACF. The current PHS 2014-02 Omnibus Solicitation will expire on May 8, 2015, so there will be no August receipt date.

So if you missed the Dec 5 receipt date, and/or if you want to make additional proposals to NIH, you are good through April 5, 2015 (non-aids) and May 7, 2015 (for aids related).

Upcoming Deadlines

Deadline: 2/13/2015

Agency: Lowe's

Program: Toolbox for Education grant

Description: Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Grant Program is dedicated to helping parent-teacher groups achieve more for their schools. Up to $5,000 will be given to K-12 public schools or parent groups (with 501c(3) status) to achieve project goals.

Award Amount: $5,000

Website: www.toolboxforeducation.com

Eligibility: Any individual public K-12 school or non-profit parent group associated with that public K-12 school. Parent groups that are applying (PTO, PTA, etc.) must have an independent EIN and official 501c(3) status from the IRS. If your group does not have 501c(3) status, please apply through your school. Pre-schools are not eligible.


Deadline: 3/17/2015 (LOI due 30 days before this date)

Agency: National Institutes of Health

Program: Innovative Molecular Analysis Technologies for Cancer Research (R21) 

Description: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits grant applications proposing exploratory research focused on the inception and early-stage development of highly innovative molecular or cellular analysis technologies for basic and clinical cancer research. The emphasis of this FOA is on supporting the development of novel molecular and cellular analysis capabilities with a high degree of technical innovation with the potential to significantly affect and transform investigations exploring the molecular and cellular basis of cancer. If successful, these technologies should accelerate and/or enhance research in the areas of cancer biology, early detection and screening, clinical diagnosis, treatment, epidemiology, and/or cancer health disparities. Technologies proposed for development may be intended to have widespread applicability but must be based on molecular and/or cellular characterizations of cancer. This funding opportunity is part of a broader NCI-sponsored Innovative Molecular Analysis Technologies (IMAT) Program.

Award Amount: Varies

Website: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-CA-15-002.html

New Opportunities

Deadline: 2/23/2015 (LOI due 30 days before this date)

Agency: National Institutes of Health

Program: Building on High Impact Basic Neurobiology Through Assay Development: Advancing Tools for Therapeutic Discovery (R01)

Description: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages research grant applications from institutions/organizations to develop novel, robust assays to reveal changes in neuronal and/or glial function. The goal is to adapt state-of-the-art measures of basic cellular processes or molecular events that are key mediators of nervous system function with the intent to probe mechanisms or perturbations in an unbiased and efficient manner. These novel assays would provide opportunities to measure neurobiological endpoints and build a pipeline to be used in the context of target identification and drug discovery.

Award Amount: Varies

Website: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-15-066.html

Eligibility: State, county or city governments; public and private institutes of higher education; school districts; small businesses; nonprofits; Native American tribal organizations; others


Deadline: 3/7/2015

Agency: National Institutes of Health

Program: Studies of HIV in Digestive Diseases Limited to Gastrointestinal Mucosal Immunology and Liver Diseases (R01)

Description: The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support innovative research with human subjects to elucidate the role of gastrointestinal mucosal immunity during HIV infection, to evaluate pathophysiologic mechanisms of injury to the liver and the biliary system during HIV infection, and to conduct epidemiological studies of liver diseases and disorders in HIV patients. Proposed projects must involve individuals with HIV infection or materials or data from HIV-infected individuals.

Award Amount: $500,000

Website: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-DK-14-019.html
