Cancer Tissue Engineering Collaborative: Enabling Biomimetic Tissue-Engineered Technologies for Cancer Research (R01 Clinical Trial Optional), NIH

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will support the development and characterization of state-of-the-art biomimetic tissue-engineered technologies for cancer research. Collaborative, multidisciplinary projects that engage the fields of regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, biomaterials, and bioengineering with cancer biology will be essential for generating novel experimental models that mimic cancer pathophysiology in the context of a testable cancer research hypothesis. The projects supported by this FOA will collectively participate in the Cancer Tissue Engineering Collaborative (TEC) Research Program.

The Cancer TEC Program will (1) catalyze the advancement of innovative, well characterized in vitro and ex vivo systems available for cancer research, (2) expand the breadth of these systems to several cancer types, and (3) promote the exploration of cancer phenomena with biomimetic tissue-engineered systems.

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects- TargetedBCP (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH

This FOA solicits applications for research projects that seek to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior using innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches. The goal is to support adventurous projects that can realize a potentially transformative outcome within 5 years. Applications are expected to address circuit function in the context of specific behaviors or neural systems, such as sensation, perception, attention, reasoning, intention, decision-making, emotion, navigation, communication, or homeostasis. Projects should link theory, data analysis, and/or computational approaches to experimental design and should produce predictive models (conceptual or quantitative). Projects should aim to improve the understanding of circuits of the central nervous system by systematically controlling stimuli and/or behavior while actively recording and/or manipulating dynamic patterns of neural activity. Diverse species or experimental systems and a cross-species/comparative approach are welcome and should be chosen based on their power to address the specific question at hand and to reveal generalizable and fundamental neuroscience principles.

Closing date: July 01, 2022, October 06, 2022, June 30, 2023, October 04, 2023, June 28, 2024, October 02, 2024. All applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.

Human cognitive and behavioural science grant - Simons Foundation, US

The Simons Foundation invites applications for its human cognitive and behavioural science grant. This supports the production of foundational knowledge about the neurobehavioural differences associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), which will directly inform the development or refinement of tools needed for translational efforts, such as biomarkers and outcome measures. Special emphasis is placed on objective, quantitative measures that may be used in conjunction with standardised clinical measures and genomic information to better triangulate phenotypic and neurobiological variability within and across individuals with ASD. Studies which capitalise on approaches to behavioural analysis that are informed by recent advances in computer vision and machine learning, as well as psychophysics and non-invasive neuroscience techniques, are encouraged. Studies which deepen understanding of cognitive constructs that are often modelled in experimental animals are also welcomed.

Maximum Budget

Explorer Track $500,000 up to two (2) years
Expansion Track $900,000 up to three (3) years

Closing date: Application Deadline: April 25, 2022; Award Notification: August 2022; Award Start Dates October 1, 2022.
