The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is asking for applications for $20 million to be available in FY 2010 for research on enterics and for investigation of agents relevant to biodefense.
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) is looking for research plans in its programs for Core, Specialized, and Comprehensive Research centers, which would receive approximately $8-13 million in fiscal year 2011.
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) seeks $8 million in 2010 proposals for research on rehabilitation and fertility preservation.
And to support career development, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) is offering $3.8 million for mentoring and diversity programs.
