PAR-12-187 NIGMS National Centers for Systems Biology (P50) October 23 2013
October 23, 2014
October 24, 2014
  The purpose of this funding opportunity (FOA) is to promote the use of Systems Biology approaches for studying complex biological phenomena, where these phenomena are relevant to the NIGMS mission. The Centers of Excellence mechanism (P50) is intended to facilitate pioneering research, research training, education, and outreach programs in this emerging area and therefore stimulate the field as a whole. The NIGMS mission includes research portfolios in the areas of bioinformatics and computational biology, molecular and cell biology, biophysics, genetics and developmental biology, biological chemistry, pharmacology, anesthesiology, basic social and behavioral sciences, and human physiology in the areas of shock, trauma, burn, wound healing, inflammation, and multi-organ system failure (http://www.nigms.nih.gov/About/). NIGMS does not support research focused on diseases or organ systems that are the domain of other Institutes and Centers within the NIH (http://www.nih.gov). The modeling of emergence of infectious diseases, a systems-related area, is the subject of another NIGMS program (http://www.nigms.nih.gov/Initiatives/MIDAS).

 
NSF 12-057 Unsolicited Proposals at the Interface of the Biological, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, and Engineering See Proposal See Proposal
  Purpose: Divisions within the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) have seen increasing numbers of proposals in recent years that focus on biological systems at all levels of biological organization, ranging from the sub-cellular level to the environment. Additionally, the Directorate of Engineering (ENG) seeks to contribute to the understanding of biology using engineering tools to exploit unique aspects of biological systems in applications that are useful in industrial, environmental, and health care arenas. At the same time, divisions in the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) are receiving more proposals that incorporate approaches and address questions that have traditionally been the domain of the mathematical and physical sciences and engineering. This letter is to remind our research communities that BIO, MPS and ENG strongly encourage proposals from interdisciplinary research teams that involve collaborations among investigators from the biological, mathematical, and physical sciences and engineering to support new interactions that span interfaces between BIO, ENG, and MPS.
