This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications using the R01 award mechanism for translational research that moves evidence-based research findings toward the development of new interventions, programs, policies, practices, and tools that can be used by organizations in the community to help older adults remain healthy and independent, productively engaged, and living in their own homes and communities. The goal of this FOA is to support translational research involving collaborations between academic research centers and community-based organizations with expertise serving or engaging older adults (such as city and state health departments, city/town leadership councils, educational institutions, workplaces, Area Agencies on Aging, and organizations funded or assisted by the Corporation for National and Community Service) that will enhance our understanding of practical tools, techniques, programs and policies that communities across the nation can use to more effectively respond to needs of the aging population.

The NEI Audacious Goal Initiative (AGI) strategic planning process selected the single audacious goal (AG) of regenerating neurons and neural connections in the eye and visual system. This AG speaks to two conditions, loss of photoreceptor cells (PRC) by disease or injury and damage to retinal ganglion cells (RGC) as occurs in glaucoma or optic neuropathy. The AGI process also identified two areas of high programmatic priority, developing new treatments for eye disease using molecular approaches and understanding the intersection of aging and the biologic mechanisms of eye disease. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage submission of new, innovative, transformative projects to address the technical needs and opportunities in the field of visual system imaging in order to focus and enable research efforts towards achieving the goals of the AGI.
Several of the Congressional Directed Medical Research Programs have released Program Announcements. Some of the mechanisms have pre-proposal (LOI) due date as early as May 13, 2014. Visit the CCTS Research Commons page dedicated to CDMRP Funding. The CCTS will facilitate Project Panels this month to aid in LOI review. Utilize the experience of UAB faculty that have reviewed or been funded by the CDMRP. Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Alabama Launchpad Small Business Innovation Research(SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer Programs
Administered by the US Small Business Administration, through which many of the largest federal agencies award contracts and grants to small businesses. The purpose of the Alabama SBIR/STTR Support Program is to increase the success rate and competitiveness of SBIR/STTR applicants in the state. The program will provide support in three ways:
Raise SBIR/STTR awareness for Alabama-based small businesses through a statewide network of partners that will advocate and host introductory SBIR/STTR workshops
Educate Alabama companies on how to compete for SBIR/STTR awards
Provide one-on-one writing assistance and proposal strategy from an expert with decades of experience writing and reviewing SBIR/STTR proposals
Beyond-the-basics training about SBIR and STTR Programs
How to prepare competitive proposals and proposal strategy
Avoiding common proposal mistakes
Federal agency focused workshops
Individual writing assistance
Applicants can receive extensive proposal writing assistance for a chance to receive over $1 million in SBIR/STTR funding. Click here for more info.
