Biological, Math and Physical Sciences Interface (NSF)

 

2010-1174 Biological, Math, and Physical Sciences Interface (NSF)

 

TOPIC: The National Science Foundation has issued a Dear Colleague Letter inviting proposals from interdisciplinary research teams that involve collaborations among investigators from the biological, mathematical, and physical sciences and foster new interactions that span interfaces between the Directorates of Mathematics and Physical Sciences (MPS) and Biology (BIO). Areas of potential mutual interest to MPS and BIO include: physical and chemical mechanisms and mathematical/statistical theories that underlie biological processes; the physical, chemical, mathematical and statistical basis of biology involving one or more levels of biological interaction or complexity; and the physical, chemical, genetic, and epigenetic principles that constrain how living systems adapt to changing environments.

 

DEADLINE: Proposals must be submitted in accordance with the deadlines
and proposal submission windows specified for unsolicited proposals
for the respective programs.

 

Catalyzing New International Collaborations (NSF)

2010-1172 Catalyzing New International Collaborations (NSF)

TOPIC: The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications to support the participation of U.S. researchers and students in activities intended to catalyze new international collaborations. This solicitation supports the initial phases of an international
collaboration with the strong expectation that the next phase will involve submission of a follow-on proposal for continued funding of the collaborative research. U.S. groups will be expected to develop a future proposal for continued funding that would be competitive in the merit-review process of the appropriate NSF program. Demand for funding of the follow-on international  may generate new models and enhanced capabilities for supporting such projects.

DEADLINE: The full proposal target dates are March 1 and September 1.
FUNDS: $2 million is available for 40 awards.
ELIGIBILITY: A PI may participate in no more than one proposal per
target date. PIs must establish communication with the cognizant
Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) country Program
Officer prior to submission to this solicitation. For a list of OISE

Program Officers by country, see

Networks & Regulation (NSF)

2010-1192 Networks and Regulation (NSF)

TOPIC: The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for creative proposals that offer a comprehensive understanding of the emergent properties of cells, organisms, and (microbial) communities. The cluster promotes fundamental research addressing questions about how cells integrate environmental signals with their internal genetic and metabolic programs to regulate physiology, development or behavior. Focus areas include the mechanisms of signal transduction, metabolic pathways and networks, synthetic biology, and origin of living systems.

DEADLINE: January 12 and July 12.
FUNDS: Unspecified.
ELIGIBILITY: NSF welcomes proposals on behalf of all qualified
scientists, engineers and educators.

Genetic Mechanisms (NSF)

2010-1191 Genetic Mechanisms (NSF)

TOPIC: The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for inventive studies to address fundamental questions such as: How do genes work? How are genes maintained and inherited? How do genes and genomes change? The Cluster welcomes in vivo and in vitro approaches, including biochemical, biophysical, computational, genetic, genomic, and metagenomic methods. Research at the interfaces between biology and other disciplines such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and engineering is encouraged.

DEADLINE: January 12 and July 12.
FUNDS: Recent awards have ranged from $5,000 to $832,000.
ELIGIBILITY: NSF welcomes proposals on behalf of all qualified
scientists, engineers and educators.

Cellular Processes (NSF)

2010-1190 Cellular Processes (NSF)

TOPIC: The National Science Foundation is inviting grant applications for innovative approaches and technologies that resolve long-standing questions in cell biology. The cluster supports imaginative projects that integrate research on processes at the supramolecular and cellular scales. The cluster welcomes multidisciplinary research that includes physical, mathematical, and computational approaches. Areas of particular interest include live-cell imaging, single-particle analysis of macromolecular assemblies, architectural organization and dynamics of structures over broad dimensional scales.

DEADLINE: January 12 and July 12.
FUNDS: Recent awards have ranged from $5,500 to $1.4 million.
ELIGIBILITY: NSF welcomes proposals on behalf of all qualified
scientists, engineers and educators.
