Biology of Breast Pre-Malignancies (R01) (NCI) (RFA-CA-07-047) Application Receipt Date: November 14, 2007
The purpose of this initiative is to stimulate multidisciplinary efforts focused on the characterization of the genetic, molecular, and/or cellular changes, and/or functional biology of pre-malignancy states of human breast cancer. The NCI solicits applications for research projects intended to facilitate the identification of those attributes of the earliest identifiable breast lesions that distinguish benign lesions from precancerous lesions. Applicants are encouraged to exploit resources and technologies that already exist, including imaging and nanotechologies. Projects taking advantage of information already available from well-validated animal model systems and quantitative modeling may also be appropriate. Two to three awards will be made.

HIGH-END INSTRUMENTATION GRANT PROGRAM (S10) (NCRR) (PAR-07-383)
Application Receipt/Submission Date(s): September 17, 2007
The NCRR High-End Instrumentation Grant (HEI) program solicits applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase a single major item of equipment to be used for biomedical research that costs at least $750,000. The maximum award is $2,000,000. Instruments in this category include, but are not limited to, structural and functional imaging systems, macromolecular NMR spectrometers, high-resolution mass spectrometers, cryoelectron microscopes and supercomputers.

NEUROTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND ENHANCEMENT (MULTIPLE INSTITUTES) {(SBIR [R43/R44] (PA-07-389), STTR [R41/R42] (PA-07-390)}
Application Receipt/Submission Date(s): Standard dates apply.
Multiple institutes solicit SBIR and STTR grant applications from small business concerns (SBCs) that propose to enable neuroscience and behavioral research through the development of novel, or the significant enhancement or improvement of currently existing, tools and approaches to be used in brain and behavioral research. Such tools and approaches could include those used in basic or clinical research, or for clinical treatment and care (e.g., assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of brain disorders). Technologies and approaches appropriate for study, development, and enhancement under this FOA include hardware (e.g., instruments, devices, etc.), software (e.g., computational algorithms, informatics tools, etc.), and wetware (e.g., imaging probes, genetic tools, etc.) that would be used to study the brain or behavior in basic or clinical research, or for clinical diagnosis and treatment.

Announcements

CIP DCIDE PROGRAM
The Cancer Imaging Program of the NCI requests submissions for its Development of Clinical Imaging Drugs and Enhancers (DCIDE) initiative. The goal is the rapid movement of promising, novel cancer imaging enhancers or molecular probes from the laboratory to proof of principle clinical trials. See the web site for details.

The Cancer Imaging Program at NCI has created this e-mail distribution list to notify interested people about funding opportunities and other issues related to imaging research. Its primary purpose is to call your attention to important, relevant information on NIH Web pages, or in the NIH Guide. Occasionally it may be used to clarify areas of confusion, or disseminate answers to frequently asked questions.

If you wish to remain on the list, no action is necessary. If you wish to be added to the list, please contact Dr Barbara Croft by return e-mail (bc129b@nih.gov). Please include your complete mailing address, title, phone and fax numbers.
