Limited Submission Opportunities

Increasingly, grant and research sponsors are limiting the number of submissions allowed from each institution. Therefore the UB Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development has created a process for selecting those proposals which could best represent the university.

HRSA-21-091 Rural Communities Opioid Response Program-Psychostimulant Support The Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) is aimed at reducing the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), in high risk rural communities. This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under RCORP-Psychostimulant Support (RCORP-PS). RCORP-PS will advance RCORP’s overall goal by strengthening and expanding prevention, treatment, and recovery services for rural individuals who misuse psychostimulants to enhance their ability to access treatment and move towards recovery.  3/12/21
Pew Foundation Scholars Program in Biomedical Sciences The Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences provides funding to young investigators of outstanding promise in science relevant to the advancement of human health. The program makes grants to support the independent research of outstanding individuals who are in their first few years of their appointment at the assistant professor level. 3/15/21
NSF Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS) This solicitation (ACCESS) aims to establish a suite of CI coordination services - meant to support a broad and diverse set of requirements, users, and usage modes from all areas of S&E research and education - and calls for proposals for five independently-managed yet tightly-cooperative service tracks.  This solicitation expects to fund five awards in the following five tracks: (1) Allocation Services; (2) End User Support Services; (3) Operations & Integration Services; (4) Monitoring & Measurement Services; and (5) Technology Translation Services. Together, these services are expected to provide a seamless experience for an increasing breadth of research users across a highly performing innovative array of national computational computing resources 3/15/21
NIH Collaborative Grants for Multidisciplinary Teams NIGMS PAR-20-103  This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages Collaborative Program Grant applications from institutions/organizations that propose to conduct research to address complex and challenging biomedical problems, important for the mission of NIGMS, through deeply integrated, multidisciplinary research teams. The Collaborative Program Grant is designed to support research in which funding a team of interdependent investigators offers significant advantages over support of individual research project grants. Applications should address critical issues and be sufficiently challenging, ambitious, and innovative that objectives could not be achieved by individual investigators. 3/24/21
Cigna Health and Well-Being Grants: Health Disparities The Health disparities refer to differences in care and outcomes between groups of people–and are closely linked with social, economic, and environmental factors. Within these broad areas, disparities happen across many dimensions, including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, location, gender, disability status, and sexual orientation. The Cigna Foundation defines health disparities as those that are unfair or unjust, occur in the process of seeking health care and access to health care, and impact different racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups to various degrees. Cigna seeks projects that will successfully address health inequities in the community by meeting at least one of the disparities identified by a local Community Needs Assessment (CNA or CHNA). 3/25/21
Scientific Innovation Awards Brain Research Foundation has invited eligible US academic institutions to nominate one senior faculty member (Associate and Full Professor) to submit a Letter of Intent for the Scientific Innovations Award (SIA). Brain Research Foundation’s Scientific Innovations Award Program provides funding for innovative science in both basic and clinical neuroscience. This funding mechanism is designed to support creative, exploratory, cutting-edge research in well-established research laboratories, under the direction of established investigators 4/1/2021
NIH Enhancing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Educational Diversity (ESTEEMED) Research Education Experiences (R25) The overarching goal of this R25 program is to support educational activities that encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, to pursue further studies or careers in research. This FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on: Courses for Skills Development, and Research Experiences for undergraduate freshmen and sophomores from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in bioengineering or STEM fields relevant to bioengineering. It will prepare students to join, in their junior and senior years, an honors program, supported by federal or institutional funds, that promotes STEM and entrance into a Ph.D. program. The ultimate goal is for the participants to pursue a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree and a subsequent research career integrating engineering and the physical sciences with medicine and biology in academia or industry. 4/1/21
NIH High-End Instrumentation (HEI) Grant Program The High-End Instrumentation (HEI) Grant program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of high-end, specialized, commercially available instruments or integrated systems. The minimum award is $600,001. There is no maximum price limit for the instrument; however, the maximum award is $2,000,000. Instruments supported include, but are not limited to, biomedical imagers, high throughput robotic screening systems, X-ray diffractometers, mass spectrometers, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, biosensors, electron and light microscopes, and cell sorters.  4/1/21
Shared Instrumentation Grant (SIG) Program The Shared Instrument Grant (SIG) Program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of high-priced, specialized, commercially available instruments or integrated instrumentation system. The minimum award is $50,000. There is no maximum price limit for the instrument; however, the maximum award is $600,000. Instruments supported include, but are not limited to: X-ray diffractometers, mass spectrometers, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, biosensors, electron and light microscopes, cell sorters, and biomedical imagers. 4/1/21
