  1. DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL IMAGING TECHNOLOGIES (PHASED INNOVATION AWARD) - NCI, NCRR (PAR-00-089)
    Letter of Intent Receipt Dates: June 14, 2000 and February 9, 2001
    Application Receipt Dates: July 19, 2000 and March 16, 2001
    The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Center for Research Resources invite applications on the development of novel image acquisition or enhancement methods, incorporating limited pilot or feasibility evaluations using either pre-clinical models or clinical studies. This initiative is intended to facilitate the development of novel imaging technologies for early detection, screening, diagnosis and image guided treatment of cancer and other diseases. The intent is to stimulate: (a) the development of highly innovative image acquisition and enhancement methods, including high risk/high gain research on technologies that exploit our knowledge of the molecular basis of cancer or other disease, and (b) the integration of these emerging technologies with traditional imaging methods for more effective health care delivery. The funding mechanism is the R21/R33 Phased Innovation Award. There is an equivalent PAR for the SBIR/STTR community.

OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

  1. Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program - NSF
    Application deadline dates: July 25-27, 2000 depending on program
    The CAREER program recognizes and supports the early career development activities of those faculty members who are most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century. CAREER awardees will be selected on the basis of creative, integrative, and effective research and education career development plans that build a firm foundation for a lifetime of integrated contributions to research and education.
