The UIC Botanical Center is focused on the selection, mechanism of action, safety and efficacy of botanicals used for women’s health. Pilot Project research should complement the Center research themes.<br /><br />SCOPE<br />Applications should outline plans to study botanicals that are used for or have the potential use for human health, including but not limited to botanicals available as dietary supplements. Research programs might:<br />1) identify and characterize new botanicals<br />2) assess the bioavailability and bioactivity of botanical components<br />3) conduct pre-clinical evaluations of botanicals <br /><br />Research must be completed within one year and funding is not renewable. The following will be considered outside the scope of this Pilot Project solicitation and will not be reviewed:<br />1) screening studies <br />2) studies designed to assess the variability of botanical ingredients in consumer products<br />3) clinical trials<br /><br />ELIGIBILITY<br />The goal of the pilot project program is to provide junior researchers or those investigators new to botanical research the opportunity to develop preliminary data leading to independent, fundable research grant applications. <br /><br />AWARD<br />The recipient of the Pilot Project Award will receive $25,000 with no F&A permitted.<br /><br />SUBMISSION PROCESS<br />Applicants are required to submit NIH-style proposals on form PHS 398 electronically to Dr. Tonsing-Carter by May 1, 2017.

NIH PAR-13-111: Team Based Design in Biomedical Engineering Education (R25)<br /><br />Summary:<br /><br />1. National Science Foundation 17-545: Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I (STTR): The STTR program is congressionally mandated and intended to support scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of federal research funds to build a strong national economy by: stimulating technological innovation in the private sector; strengthening the role of small business in meeting federal research and development needs; increasing the commercial application of federally supported research results; and fostering and encouraging participation by socially and economically disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses. UIC is limited to one submission. For more information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/nsf_sttr17.<br /><br />2. National Science Foundation 17-546: Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs: This solicitation calls for new BD Spoke proposals to be awarded in FY 2018. Collaborating with BD Hubs, each BD Spoke will focus on a particular topic that requires Big Data approaches and solutions. The set of activities managed by a BD Spoke will promote progress towards solutions in the chosen topic area. The regional 1 BD Hub Steering Committee will provide general guidance to each BD Spoke and will assist the BD Spoke in coordinating with the national BD Hub network, with other BD Spokes, and with the broader innovation ecosystem. In particular, this solicitation is not meant to fund proposals in which fundamental research is the primary activity. UIC is limited to one submission. For more information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/nsf_bdrie17.<br /><br />3. NIH PAR-13-111 Team-Based Design in Biomedical Engineering Education (R25): The over-arching goal of this NIBIB-NICHD R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on Courses for Skills Development. This FOA encourages applications from institutions that propose to establish new or to enhance existing team-based design courses or programs in undergraduate Biomedical Engineering departments or other degree-granting programs with Biomedical Engineering tracks/minors. This FOA mainly targets undergraduate students but may also include first-year graduate students. Courses and programs that address innovative and/or ground-breaking development, multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary education, the regulatory pathway and other issues related to the commercialization of medical devices, and clinical immersion are especially encouraged. UIC is limited to one submission.
