Imaging Related Pilot Project Grants  

Call for Applications from the Nebraska Center for Nanomedicine (NCN) for Imaging Related Pilot Project Grants

Submission deadline: July 15, 2015
Peer Review Date(s): August 30, 2015
Start Date(s): October 01, 2015

It is recognized that adding non-invasive imaging studies to characterize biodistribution and efficacy is difficult and expensive. This Request for Applications is designed to remove the steep initial barrier to investigating the ability of imaging methods to enhance studies developing nanoformulated drugs. This funding is available to support costs of imaging and image processing among current and potential future NCN CoBRE investigators and their collaborators.

Awards will be made for 1 year with funded amounts up to $10,000 per project. 

Budget Guidelines

The budget must not exceed $10,000 total.

The budget will cover time charges for instrument use. MRI scan costs are $160/hr and SPECT/CT time charges are $100/hr. Time charges includes the cost of a trained technologist for animal handling and scanning as well as aid and training for data processing and interpretation.

Timelines

Please direct all questions to Michael Boska at mboska@unmc.edu or 559-3138 or Tatiana Bronich at tbronich@unmc.edu or 559-9351. Applications must be submitted electronically to Chris Allmon (callmon@unmc.edu) no later than July 15, 2015.

2015 Nebraska Biobank RFA  
Eligibility:  All University of Nebraska faculty.
Submission requirement:  Nebraska Biobank Application 
Submission receipt date: From now until 12/31/15. 

Background:  The Nebraska Biobank is a new University of Nebraska resource funded, in part, by the Nebraska Research Initiative and developed by University of Nebraska Medical Center with The Nebraska Medical Center.  The biobank samples are de-identified (and thus IRB approval is not required for their use) but linked to data abstracted to health data including age, sex, race/ethnicity, smoking status, estimated geographic location, medications, diagnoses, and laboratory data.  DNA and serum is available from samples that were kept at 4oC for 48 hours prior to storage at -80oC.

DoD Funding Opportunities  
This booklet of Department of Defense sponsored opportunities are provided as a quick reference for researchers. DoD opportunities should always be considered as rapid response with very short timelines between the call for proposals and the closing date.  Contact Dr. Paula Turpen (402-559-6162) in the Office of Research for questions regarding working with the Department of Defense.
