Nsf18012. National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. NOT-OD-17-080: Extramural Loan Repayment Program for Health Disparities Research (LRP-HDR) Fulbright Global Scholar Award. The Fulbright Global Scholar Award allows U.S. academics and professionals to engage in multi-country, trans-regional projects.
As a truly worldwide award, U.S. scholars will be able to propose research or combined teaching/research activity in two to three countries with flexible schedule options; trips can be conducted within one academic year or spread over two consecutive years. For more information and examples on the grant schedule, please see below. Fulbright Global Scholar Award. BRAIN Initiative: Research Career Enhancement Award for Investigators to Build Skills in a Cross-Disciplinary Area (K18) This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) invites applications for mentored career enhancement (K18) awards in research areas that are highly relevant to the NIH BRAIN Initiative.
This career enhancement program will support development of research capability for the BRAIN Initiative, with specific emphasis on cross-training independent investigators in a substantively different area of neuroscience, neuroethics, or in a quantitative and physical discipline (e.g., physics, chemistry, engineering, computer science, mathematics); and vice versa, cross-training independent investigators trained in a quantitative or physical discipline proposing to gain in-depth training in a high-priority area of neuroscience. The research project conducted under this K18 should enhance the candidate’s ability to significantly contribute to or lead projects that investigate questions central to the goals of the BRAIN Initiative.

Funding Opportunity Title. GPG - Chapter II - Instructions for Proposal Preparation. Organizations applying for the first time, or which have not received a NSF award within the preceding two years, should refer to GPM Section 501, for instructions on specific information that may be requested by NSF or consult the Prospective New Awardee Guide (NSF 99-78) on the NSF Web site at: < To facilitate proposal preparation, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding proposal preparation and submission are available electronically on the NSF Web site at: < FAQs regarding FastLane proposal preparation and submission are available at: < With the exception of item B.3 below, all standard NSF proposal format items, including single copy documents, are supported by FastLane.

Any deviations from these instructions must be authorized in advance by NSF. B. 1. 2. 3. C. Pages submitted must be of standard size. D. 1. 2. Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) - National Institutes of Health (NIH) Volvox - Volvox - Wikipedia. Description Volvox colony: 1) Chlamydomonas-like cell, 2) Daughter colony, 3) Cytoplasmic bridges, 4) Intercellular gel, 5) Reproductive cell, 6) Somatic cell.
Reproduction An asexual colony includes both somatic (vegetative) cells, which do not reproduce, and large, non-motile gonidia in the interior, which produce new colonies through repeated division. In sexual reproduction two types of gametes are produced. Volvox species can be monoecious or dioecious. Volvox is facultatively sexual and can reproduce both sexually and asexually.
Kirk and Kirk showed that sex-inducing pheromone production can be triggered in somatic cells by a short heat shock given to asexually growing organisms. Habitats Volvox is a genus of freshwater algae found in ponds and ditches, even in shallow puddles. According to Charles Joseph Chamberlain, History Antonie van Leeuwenhoek first reported observations of Volvox in 1700.
Accelerated Examination. The USPTO has established procedures under which the examination of a patent application may be accelerated.
Under one of these procedures, the USPTO will advance an application out of turn for examination if the applicant files a grantable petition to make special under the accelerated examination program. The USPTO is similarly revising the procedures for other petitions to make special, except those based on applicant's health or age or the PPH pilot program. Other petitions to make special (i.e., based on: manufacture, infringement, environmental quality, energy, recombinant DNA, superconductivity materials, HIV/AIDS and cancer, countering terrorism, and biotechnology applications filed by small entities MPEP § 708.02 ) will be processed using the revised procedure for accelerated examination. The effective date for this change in practice is : 25 August 2006 . Statistics Decisions on Petitions to Make Special (May 29, 2015)
Pilot Projects. SCTR will facilitate new and innovative, interdisciplinary, high-impact translational research with emphasis on diseases demonstrating significant prevalence in South Carolina.
SCTR supports applications across the translational spectrum - from basic science to population health - including patient-centered and community-engaged applications as well as applications from Early Career Investigators to shorten the time to research independence.
