Funding from Foundations/Private Sources
JHU's Corporate and Foundation Relations maintains a Web site listing upcoming grant competitions that are sponsored by foundations and other private sources: http://jhuresearch.jhu.edu/OCFR.htm. They are in addition to the limited-submission RFPs periodically announced by the Research Projects Administration office. The opportunities are listed in order of deadline and links to each funder's application information are provided. Contact Karin Hunt (email@example.com) with any questions.
The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) announces the release of Requests for Proposals (RFP) for non-embryonic stem cell research on the International Space Station (ISS) National Laboratory (NL). The RFP seeks to identify projects studying the effects of microgravity on non-embryonic mammalian stem cells for one of two research emphasis areas: (1) rapid turn-around spaceflight experiments to be performed on the NL or (2) ground-based research that will pave the way for improved spaceflight experiments in the future. CASIS will support selected projects through grant funding, facilitation of service provider partnerships, coordination of available hardware that may be considered for research and flight transportation coordination to and from the ISS.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA)
has introduced a new funding initiative entitled "Pathway to Stop
Diabetes" with the intention of inspiring new research in diabetes.
This program will provide support to individuals focusing on innovative
ideas and transformational approaches that will lead to ground-breaking
discoveries in the prevention, treatment and cure of all diabetes types
(type 1, type 2 and gestational), diabetes-related disease states (obesity,
pre-diabetes, and other insulin resistant states) and complications
resulting from diabetes. The ADA is welcoming applications from investigators
with various areas of expertise in science and technology including
medicine, biology, chemistry, computing, engineering, physics, and mathematics.
The ADA Pathway program will support creative
scientists early in their research careers or investigators who are
established in other disciplines and would like to expand their focus
to diabetes research through two awards. The Diabetes Research Career
Initiator Award and the Diabetes Research Accelerator Award each provide
support for independent research at a maximum of $325,000 per year (including
30% indirect costs). Specific information about the Pathway to Stop
Diabetes program is available at: http://professional.diabetes.org/Congress_Display.aspx?TYP=9&SID=695&CID=91814
Each applicant will receive a confirmation
of receipt of their materials. If any applicant does not receive an
acknowledgement within three business days, please contact Janet Palmer
at (410) 516-3295 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The selected application must be submitted to the American Diabetes
Association by August 16, 2013.
The Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program
provides 5+ years of full-time, funded research in the NIH intramural
program for tenure-track level clinical investigators, followed by either
continued research at the NIH, or a special opportunity for 5 additional
years of NIH funds at an extramural medical center or research institute.
Lasker Scholars may be able to maintain an affiliation with their previous
institution during their time at the NIH.
