The Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center at Johns Hopkins is pleased to announce that funding is available for a limited number of novel developmental research programs (pilot projects) in the study of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. This program funds important new pilot projects with promising translational potential that do not have sufficient data for an independently funded NIH grant. Projects of high priority should focus on new research directions, explore innovative ideas, test unconventional, but potentially important, new hypotheses, or ascertain the feasibility of new research approaches. Applications are due Thursday, September 1, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. For more information on how to submit an application visit: http://pilotprojects.onc.jhmi.edu.

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) announces its CounterACT cooperative research (U01) program in the area of translational research. The mission of this program is to develop new and improved therapeutics for chemical threats. Chemical threats are toxic chemicals that could be used in a terrorist attack or accidentally released from industrial production, storage or shipping. They include traditional chemical warfare nerve agents such as sarin and VX, and toxic industrial chemicals and pesticides such as cyanide, chlorine, parathion, and sodium fluoroacetate. The scope of the research to be supported includes basic target and candidate identification and characterization studies, through candidate optimization and demonstration of in vivo efficacy, through Investigational New Drug (IND) submission and Phase 1 clinical trials when appropriate. Each project must include milestones that create discrete go or no-go decision points in a progressive translational study plan. For complete details on this funding opportunity, click here: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-11-155.html.
NINDS has a listing of Translational Research opportunities available on their website at the following page: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/funding_announcements/Translational-Research.htm
