The Chronic Effects of Neurotrauma Consortium
(CENC) is seeking applications for collaborations and research studies
focused on the impact and sequelae of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI)
/ chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in active duty service members
and veterans. Studies will address questions and areas complementary
to the Consortium's mission and alignment to specified programmatic
needs and funding alignments. Information on the CENC can be found at
Information on the CENC integrated grant program and the Fall 2014 Request
for Applications (RFA) can be found at https://cenc.rti.org/Research-Studies/CENC-Grant-Program.
Questions regarding this opportunity should be directed to the CENC Peer Review Program Chair, Dr. Steven West (email@example.com).

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
announces a request for applications for the 5th Annual Discovery Fund
in honor of Dr. Michel Mirowski and his wife Anna for Cardiovascular
This announcement seeks proposals for innovative
cardiovascular research projects led by faculty of the Johns Hopkins
University School of Medicine (SOM). This award of up to $75,000 is
to catalyze innovative ideas that are high risk and would not ordinarily
be funded by the NIH until sufficient preliminary data are gathered.
This award is not intended to support already established projects or
incremental extensions of ongoing research programs. Collaborations
across all Johns Hopkins entities are eligible for consideration, but
proposals must include a SOM faculty member as principal investigator.
The Mirowski Discovery Award will consist of up
to $75,000, with an award term of one year. Applicants must describe
a credible plan that they will make substantial progress with one year
The research proposal should contain the following:
The research proposal section can be no more than
three pages (single-spaced Arial font size 11), not including citations.
Citations should be limited to 10. Shorter applications are encouraged.
Since the Mirowski Discovery Award is intended for new collaborative
projects, no preliminary data are required.
Awards will be announced by October 13 for funding beginning November 1, 2014. Recipient will be expected to attend the awards dinner on Monday, October 13, 2014.
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 Friday, September 5, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. and may be found at: http://pilotprojects.onc.jhmi.edu.
Application deadline: September 15, 2014
