MBRS Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) program MBRS Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) (R25)(PAR-10-004), National Institute of General Medical Sciences. Application Receipt/Submission Date(s): Multiple dates, see announcement. The Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS) Program was created in response to a legislative mandate of increasing the participation of underrepresented (UR) minority faculty, investigators and students engaged in biomedical and behavioral research, and to broaden the opportunities for their participation in biomedical and behavioral research. To accomplish this goal, the Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) program provides institutional grants to establish research education programs at minority-serving institutions that will increase the preparation and skills of UR students in the biomedical and behavioral sciences as they academically advance in the pursuit of the Ph.D. degree in these fields. Purpose. The goal of the RISE Program is to increase the number of students from UR groups in biomedical and behavioral research who successfully complete the Ph.D. degree in these fields.

NCGR NM-INBRE Bioinformatics and Sequencing Center Core Pilot Project Award Two (2) - Three (3) $10,000 sequencing and analysis pilot awards will be awarded.APPLICATION INFORMATION:Pilot sequencing award is eligible to regional INBRE/COBRE scientists interested in Next-Gen sequencing and analysis. This is a pilot project designed for approximately 1-2 Gigabase of sequencing coverage along with Alpheus data analysis (variant and expression detection). The award can be used for either transcriptomic or genomic sequencing and ideally for SNP discovery and transcriptomic expression. CHIP-seq and MicroRNA experiments will also be considered, however the client must provide MiRNA libraries for sequencing. Since this is a pilot project with constrained scope, the project should be limited to 2-4 samples. Projects that include student involvement will be preferentially considered. DEADLINE: Oct. 31st, 2009 and winner(s) will be announced in Winter 2009. Click here for more information.
Reducing Risk Behaviors by Promoting Positive Youth Development (R01) The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement, supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the National Institute of Nursing Research, is to encourage Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/ organizations that propose to enhance our understanding of effective positive youth development programs and the mechanisms responsible for positive health and developmental outcomes. This will be accomplished through the development, implementation, and evaluation of new or improved positive youth development programs, the evaluation of existing “successful” programs, or the evaluation of effective, evidence-based, gender-inclusive programs that are adapted, translated, or disseminated for new populations of youth and adolescents.
