NIH R01 -Identification and Characterization of Bioactive Microbial Metabolites for Advancing Research on Microbe-Diet-Host Interactions (Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Letter of Intent Deadline: September 20, 2021, May 10, 2022 & more
Application Deadline: October 20, 2021, June 22, 2022 & more

Purpose: To invite applications to identify and characterize microbial metabolites that will establish causal associations between microbial metabolism and host health and disease. Data acquired through this initiative will be used to create a knowledgebase of microbial metabolites and associated functions that will be provided to the research community. Development of the database and knowledge portal for these awards will be supported under a separate initiative: RFA-DK-21-014, Identification and Characterization of Bioactive Microbial Metabolites for Advancing Research on Microbe-Diet-Host Interactions Knowledgebase Management Center (Clinical Trial Not Allowed).

NSF and NIH- Smart Health and Biomedical Research in the Era of Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Data Science

Application Deadline: February 16 and November 10. 2021

Purpose: This interagency program solicitation supports the development of transformative high-risk, high-reward advances in computer and information science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, behavioral and/or cognitive research to address pressing questions in the biomedical and public health communities. Transformations hinge on scientific and engineering innovations by interdisciplinary teams that develop novel methods to intuitively and intelligently collect, sense, connect, analyze and interpret data from individuals, devices and systems to enable discovery and optimize health. Solutions to these complex biomedical or public health problems demand the formation of interdisciplinary teams that are ready to address these issues, while advancing fundamental science and engineering.
