Wyoming INBRE Requests Pre-Proposals for INBRE 3 Thematic Research Projects

Wyoming INBRE is requesting pre-proposals for the Wyoming INBRE 3 Thematic Research Project Program. Selected pre-proposals will be invited to submit full proposals for projects with a start date of May 1, 2014 pending receipt of the Wyoming INBRE 3 Notice of Award from the National Institute for General Medical Sciences. The goal of the Thematic Research Program is to provide support to faculty developing research projects related to Wyoming INBRE Thematic foci that will be competitive for NIH R-type or other external funding sources (NSF, AHA, ADA, etc...). The research foci for Wyoming INBRE 3 are 1) cardiometabolic syndrome and 2) technology for chronic disease research and therapeutics. Proposals from junior investigators (assistant professor) that address the Wyoming INBRE Thematic Areas and related rural health issues will receive priority. Inquiries regarding feasibility of potential projects are encouraged and can be directed to Dr. Ren (jren@uwyo.edu) or Dr. Seville (sseville@uwyo.edu). Due date for pre-proposals is Friday, 5:00pm January 16, 2015. Click for the full RFP.

Proposals requested for Wyoming INBRE Bioinformatics Training Travel Grant Program

The NIH NIGMS-funded Wyoming IDeA Networks for Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) Program requests proposals from University of Wyoming and Wyoming community college faculty and researchers to the Wyoming INBRE Bioinformatics Training Travel Grant Program.

Wyoming INBRE Requests Proposals for UW-Community College Collaborative Grant Proposals

Wyoming INBRE is soliciting proposals from Wyoming Community College and University of Wyoming faculty and researchers to the INBRE Wyoming Community College- University of Wyoming Collaborative Grant Program. The goal of this program is to support research projects that engage University and Wyoming Community College researchers and students in projects that further the goals of Wyoming INBRE and have the potential to produce publishable results and develop into fundable programs at NIH and other federal agencies. The project should engage undergraduate and graduate students and postdocs at UW and the community college in the collaboration and facilitate the development of undergraduates into independent researchers. It should also help undergraduates identify and pursue pathways to the baccalaureate degree and graduate training in the biomedical sciences. Proposals should be for biomedical-related research projects broadly defined. This includes but is not limited to research in the disciplines of nutrition, physiology, molecular biology, epidemiology, disease ecology, environmental health, bioinformatics and computational biology. Projects that relate to the INBRE thematic research areas of (1) Cardiometabolic Syndrome and (2) Technologies for Chronic Disease Research and Therapeutics are strongly encouraged. The maximum amount requested cannot exceed $15,000 and the award must be expended by August 31, 2015. Click for RFP and Application Materials.
