The CCTS TIERS (Training Interdisciplinary and Emerging Research Scholars) meetings strive to address the career development needs of junior faculty, postdoctoral trainees, fellows and preprofessional students. Topics are presented in a relaxed environment structured to promote collaborative learning and problem solving and to strengthen relationships in an effort to broaden the potential of each researcher both individually and collectively. The TIERS meetings take place in the Pittman Center for Advanced Medical Studies (PCAMS) located at 1924 7th Ave South (across from the School of Dentistry).
This event is free, please register by December 5.
Inviting Project Applications to Include in Roybal Center P30 Renewal
Edward R. Roybal Center for Translational Research in Aging and Mobility
Deadline for Applications: 5 p.m. on Monday, December 2, 2013
The Edward R. Roybal Center for Translational Research in Aging at UAB is inviting pilot project applications from UAB faculty to include in its upcoming competing renewal P30 application to the National Institute on Aging. The mission of the Center is to carry out research that will ultimately enhance the health and well-being of older adults. Applications should propose studies whose long-range goal is to apply the theories, paradigms, and methodology of the social and behavioral sciences to address mechanisms of behavior change interventions. Since the theme of UAB's Roybal Center is aging and mobility broadly construed, pilot project applications should be consistent with this theme. Priority will be given to proposals that address issues related to decision-making, cognition, resilience, self-control, motivation, and positive health behaviors.
Please see the attached pdf that gives detailed guidance for application preparation and submission. Questions should be directed to Angela McKinney at AngelaMcKinney@uab.edu or phone (205) 325-8637 (this number is in the Callahan Eye Hospital and outside the UAB phone system).

Funding Opportunity: NSF Major Research Instrumentation Program Solicitation
The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education, and not-for-profit museums, science centers and scientific/engineering research organizations. This program especially seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, by supporting proposals for shared instrumentation that fosters the integration of research and education in research-intensive learning environments. Each MRI proposal may request support for the acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single research instrument for shared inter- and/or intra-organizational use; development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at MRI submission-eligible organizations are encouraged.
