  1. LUNG IMAGE DATABASE RESOURCE FOR IMAGING RESEARCH (CA-01-001) (NCI)
    Letter of Intent Receipt Date: June 9, 2000;
    Application Receipt Date: July 14, 2000
    The National Cancer Institute (NCI) invites applications from investigators who are interested in joining a consortium of institutions to develop the necessary consensus and standards for an image database resource and to construct a database of spiral computed tomography (CT) lung images. The administrative and funding instrument to be used for this program will be a cooperative agreement (U01). The total project period for applications submitted in response to this RFA may not exceed 5 years. The NCI intends to commit approximately $7 million total costs to the support of this initiative over 5 years. The NCI intends to commit approximately $1.3 million in FY 01 to fund approximately 5 grants in response to this RFA.

OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

  1. FY 2000/2001 COMBINED RESEARCH-CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT - NSF Program Announcement NSF 00-66
    LETTER OF INTENT DEADLINE: March 31, 2000 (Optional);
    DEADLINE: June 2, 2000
    The Combined Research-Curriculum Development (CRCD) Program, a joint initiative of the Directorate for Engineering (ENG) and the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), supports multidisciplinary projects that integrate new, state-of-the-art research advances in emerging technology areas into upper level undergraduate and introductory graduate engineering and computer and information science curricula. Projects address a need for innovative curricula, courses, textbooks, instructional modules and instructional laboratories by integrating the research and education interests of faculty through involvement in curriculum change. The CRCD program seeks to closely engage faculty researchers,
