Wednesday, November 9, 2022 | 3: 00 PM – 6:00 PM

CODA at Tech Square

756 W Peachtree St NW, Atlanta, GA 30308

We invite you to join us at a networking event and pitch competition between Emory University and Georgia Tech on the topic of AI.Humanity with a Social Justice Lens. This event is open to researchers from both universities who currently work in AI and/or Social Justice and those who have an interest in working at the intersection of these areas. 

The first half of the event will include structured networking activities to promote dialogue around social justice. Attendees will be encouraged to network, create teams, and brainstorm ideas for new projects. The event will culminate with each team pitching their ideas to receive on-the-spot funding.

Therapeutics for Eliminating Hepatitis B Virus cccDNA (R21/R33 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to invite applications aimed at discovery of new antivirals that result in the transcriptional suppression and elimination of HBV cccDNA from infected cells.

Deadline: 2/14/2023

Epigenetic Mechanisms Regulating HIV CNS Latency and Neuropathogenesis Using Novel Single Cell Technologies (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support studies on the epigenetic mechanisms regulating HIV central nervous system (CNS) latency and/or neuropathogenesis using in-vitro (macrophages, microglia and astrocytes, organoids), ex-vivo (post-mortem tissue) and/or in-vivo systems (animal models). Strategies to target epigenetic pathways for achieving sustained HIV remission and treatment of HIV associated-CNS dysfunction are encouraged. The use novel single cell technologies are also strongly encouraged but is not a requirement. Basic and translational research in domestic and international settings are of interest.

Research on Current Topics in Alzheimer's Disease and Its Related Dementias (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite applications proposing research on current topics in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and its related dementias (ADRD). Further information on the high-priority topics of interest will be announced through a series of Notices published subsequent to this FOA.

Deadline: 11/14/2022


Cancer Center Support Grants (CCSGs) for NCI-designated Cancer Centers (P30 Clinical Trial Optional

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for P30 Cancer Center Support Grants (CCSGs) to support NCI-designated Cancer Centers. CCSGs support three types of Cancer Centers: 1) Comprehensive Cancer Centers, which demonstrate reasonable depth and breadth of research activities in each of three major areas: basic laboratory; clinical; and prevention, control and population-based research, and which have substantial transdisciplinary research that bridges these scientific areas; and 2) Clinical Cancer Centers, which are primarily focused on basic laboratory; clinical; and prevention, cancer control, and population-based research; or some combination of these areas, and 3) Basic Cancer Centers, which focus on basic laboratory research.

Global Health

Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR)

The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR) program is a broad-based research program with the goal of understanding the behavior of atmospheric regions from the middle atmosphere upward through the thermosphere and ionosphere into the exosphere in terms of coupling, energetics, chemistry, and dynamics on regional and global scales. These processes are related to the sources of perturbations that propagate upward from the lower atmosphere as well as to solar radiation and particle inputs from above. The activities within this program include observations from ground-based and space-based platforms, theory, and modeling.

Deadline: 5/5/2023

Mechanism for Time-Sensitive Research Opportunities in Environmental Health Sciences (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is intended to support novel environmental health research in which an unpredictable event or policy change provides a limited window of opportunity to collect human biological samples or environmental exposure data. The primary motivation of the FOA is to understand the consequences of natural and human-made disasters, emerging environmental public health threats, and policy changes in the U.S. and abroad. A distinguishing feature of an appropriate study is the need for rapid review and funding, substantially shorter than the typical NIH grant review/award cycle, for the research question to be addressed and swiftly implemented.

Deadline: 11/10/2022
