Ancillary Studies to the NIDDK Inflammatory Bowel Disease Genetics Consortium (R01- Clinical Trial Optional)
https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-DK-18-017.html
Intent Deadline: October 1, 2018
UNL Pre-Proposal Deadline: October 15, 2018
Application Deadline: February 21, 2019

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Genetics Consortium (IBDGC), in collaboration with the International IBD Genetics Consortium, has identified about 200 susceptibility loci for IBD. The IBDGC has recently been awarded renewed funding to identify causal genes and genetic variants within these loci and to elucidate the mechanisms through which they contribute to the pathophysiology of IBD. However, the IBDGC's current resources permit them to explore the functions of only a limited set of genes within a limited set of physiological domains. This opportunity invites investigators from outside the IBDGC to establish collaborations with the IBDGC to exploit more fully the great wealth of well-characterized patients, biological samples, and data already amassed by the IBDGC to elucidate the mechanisms by which IBD susceptibility genetic variants influence the pathophysiology of IBD. Only one application per institution is allowed.

NIH Blueprint Program for Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity through Undergraduate Research Education Experiences (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-NS-19-007.html
Intent Deadline: October 8, 2018
UNL Pre-Proposal Deadline: October 22, 2018
Application Deadline: February 15, 2019

The overarching goal of this NIH Blueprint R25 program is to encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research workforce, to pursue further studies or careers in research. To accomplish this goal, this opportunity will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on courses for skills development, research experiences, and mentoring activities. The fully integrated educational activities should prepare undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral sciences, to enter Ph.D. degree programs in the neurosciences. Only one application per institution is allowed.

Intent Deadline: October 1, 2018
Application Deadline: February 6, 2019

The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based masters and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. Proposals are requested in any interdisciplinary research theme of national priority, with special emphasis on two high priority areas: (1) Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) and (2) Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems (INFEWS).

UNL is limited to two proposal submissions. Individuals may serve as PI or Co-PI on only one proposal.

If you are interested in developing a proposal in response to this funding opportunity, please complete a notification of intent to submit by October 1, 2018. For more information regarding the internal selection process, visit http://research.unl.edu/limited-submissions-funding-programs/.
