One of the main objectives of this program is to fund research efforts which result in a demonstrable reduction in food-borne illness. This program supports hypothesis driven research - that seeks to increase our knowledge of microbial ecology with regard to the routes of contamination of food; this includes on-farm investigations, post-harvest incidence, processing and distribution of food. Aspects of microbial ecology that provide for avenues of intervention and mitigation of food-borne illnesses or toxicities also fit this program.

SYNOPSIS:

Awards provide a total of $125,000 for two years of support to investigators, who have or will soon receive their doctoral degree, for research to provide basic knowledge about biochemical processes, pathways, and interactions in agriculturally and economically important plants and related organisms. Fundamental knowledge in biochemistry, combined with genomics and molecular biology, will lead to practical applications such as enhancing the nutritional value of plant-based foods, increasing the productivity and fitness of agricultural plants and trees, better utilizing trees and agricultural plants for bioenergy, and developing agricultural plants as bioreactors to produce important industrial and pharmaceutical compounds.

One of the main objectives of this program is to fund research efforts which result in a demonstrable reduction in food-borne illness. This program supports hypothesis driven research - that seeks to increase our knowledge of microbial ecology with regard to the routes of contamination of food; this includes on-farm investigations, post-harvest incidence, processing and distribution of food. Aspects of microbial ecology that provide for avenues of intervention and mitigation of food-borne illnesses or toxicities also fit this program. Eligible applicants are any state agricultural experiment station, college, university, other research institution or organization, Federal agency, national laboratory, private organization, corporation or individual. Awards are not likely to exceed a total budget of $400,000.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor seeks Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) applications for cooperative research and development projects to be conducted jointly by a small business awardee and a nonprofit or federally-funded research institution for the development and validation of new or improved imaging and sensor technologies that will enhance opportunities to address key research questions about human aging. Such imaging and sensor technologies could be crucial for studies to elucidate the processes and mechanisms of human aging, to characterize physiologic aging changes over the life span, and to characterize physiologic, pathologic, and functional abnormalities in old age. The development of non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques that would allow serial measurements within the same individual over an extended period of time is of particular interest. This PAS will use the NIH STTR (R41/R42) grant mechanisms.

One of the main objectives of this program is to fund research efforts which result in a demonstrable reduction in food-borne illness. This program supports hypothesis driven research - that seeks to increase our knowledge of microbial ecology with regard to the routes of contamination of food; this includes on-farm investigations, post-harvest incidence, processing and distribution of food. Aspects of microbial ecology that provide for avenues of intervention and mitigation of food-borne illnesses or toxicities also fit this program.

Deadline Note:
Applications may be submitted to Grants.gov on or after March 1, 2006. This program will expire on April 2, 2008.
SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor seeks Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) applications for cooperative research and development projects to be conducted jointly by a small business awardee and a nonprofit or federally-funded research institution for the development and validation of new or improved imaging and sensor technologies that will enhance opportunities to address key research questions about human aging. Such imaging and sensor technologies could be crucial for studies to elucidate the processes and mechanisms of human aging, to characterize physiologic aging changes over the life span, and to characterize physiologic, pathologic, and functional abnormalities in old age. The development of non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques that would allow serial measurements within the same individual over an extended period of time is of particular interest. This PAS will use the NIH STTR (R41/R42) grant mechanisms.
