The University of Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core (MRC)2 is pleased to announce the 2016 Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program (the full text of the RFA can be found here). This program is intended to provide opportunities for investigators to advance basic, clinical and translational biomedical science by incorporating metabolomic technologies into their research program.
Funding Opportunity Number: DE-FOA-0001458
U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Great Lakes Center is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner for research on "Genomic Analysis of Microbial Communities in Degraded Ecosystems." This research effort will use innovative and cutting edge microbial genomics tools to investigate microbial communities in degraded ecosystems and their roles in restoration. The goal of this research is to understand how degradation influences the microbial community and how in turn the microbial community influences further degradation and potential for restoration in the Great Lakes basin.
Grantor: Global Probiotics Council
Grant Opportunity: Research Grant
Award Amount: $50,000
Deadline: February 12, 2016
The purpose of the Young Investigator Grant for Probiotic Research is to contribute to the advancement of probiotics and gastrointestinal microbiota research in the United States and to impact academic and career development of young investigators, attracting them into the field of probiotics and microbiota.
With Our Planet, Our Health, we want to invest in high-quality, transdisciplinary programmes of research that investigate novel aspects of – and build evidence for – how complex changes in our environment affect our health. Supported proposals will consider the interplay between different environments (biological, physical, economic, social and natural), drive collaborative research, and ultimately lead to outputs with a significant impact on our health.
San Francisco, CA – uBiome, the leading microbial genomics company, is offering talented researchers with big ideas a grant of up to $100,000 of microbiome sampling kits and full 16S laboratory analysis. The goal is to fast-track a study with the greatest potential to affect human health and well-being. The winner will also have access to their own dashboard, enabling them to view and compare the results of their study, as well as being able to download raw data to analyze in any way they like.
Multiple opportunities may be reviewed through the IFFGD link listed here.
The Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases program supports research on the ecological, evolutionary, and socio-ecological principles and processes that influence the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases. The central theme of submitted projects must be quantitative or computational understanding of pathogen transmission dynamics. The intent is discovery of principles of infectious disease transmission and testing mathematical or computational models that elucidate infectious disease systems.
Despite centuries of discovery, most of our planet's biodiversity remains unknown. The scale of the unknown diversity on Earth is especially troubling given the rapid and permanent loss of biodiversity across the globe. The goal of the Dimensions of Biodiversity campaign is to transform, by 2020, how we describe and understand the scope and role of life on Earth. This campaign promotes novel integrative approaches to fill the most substantial gaps in our understanding of the diversity of life on Earth.
