NSF Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) (23-519)

The Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program serves to increase access to multi-user scientific and engineering instrumentation for research and research training. An MRI award supports the acquisition or development of a multi-user research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs.

**NOTE: The CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 Section 10320 removes the cost-sharing requirements for the MRI program for a period of 5 years. **

Internal Opportunities

Racial Justice/Racial Equity Seed Funding (Provost Office)

Societal inequities along racial lines have deep historical and systemic roots and span many areas, including but not limited to education, housing, health, economic security, voting and political participation, and the criminal justice system. Understanding racial inequalities that exist in our society and identifying mechanisms to address them is critical to achieving a more equitable society. 

This funding opportunity seeks to identify and support research proposals from current, full-time members of the Emory faculty whose research, scholarly efforts, and creative activities address racial justice/racial equity. At Emory University, racial justice means making sure our society works for every citizen. Specifically, it is about working toward equity for individuals and groups systematically excluded and disadvantaged in the United States, whether that exclusion has historic origins or stems from current biased practices.

Advanced Computing Systems & Services: Adapting to the Rapid Evolution of Science and Engineering Research

Today’s research discoveries at the confluence of theoretical, experimental, and computational S&E are enabled by the continuing availability of an ecosystem of advanced computational resources. For nearly four decades, NSF has effectively supported the broad availability and innovative use of a diverse set of computational resources to accelerate fundamental advances in S&E.

These investments have spanned discipline-specific instruments and facilities; computational systems of varying capabilities and architectures optimized for different applications; virtual organizations for allocating resources and interfacing with users; human expertise in using, developing, deploying and operating resources; and the network backbone that connects and provides access to these resources.

Deadline: 2/21/2023

Strengthening the Cyberinfrastructure Professionals Ecosystem (SCIPE)

Advanced computing and data analytics are increasingly central to S&E innovation and economic prosperity. S&E researchers use advanced CI systems and tools in close collaboration with the expert CIP workforce as an interdependent ecosystem. Efficient and effective use of the advanced CI ecosystem by NSF programs can sometimes be limited by lack of availability of appropriate CIP expertise, gaps in specialty skills, organizational distance, or even simple unawareness of needs. For testbeds and novel CI paradigms, CIPs are often the only link between newly developed computing capabilities and the research community.

The SCIPE program addresses the growing need for CIP expertise, the need to address emerging CI requirements, and the need for organizational recognition and to establish career pathways for the CIP workforce that supports innovation, development, maintenance, and utilization of NSF’s advanced CI ecosystem by researchers and educators.

Deadline: 2/23/2023

Infectious Diseases

Maintaining Immunity after Immunization (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to promote research to improve our understanding of how vaccines against infectious agents lead to durable protective immunity. This initiative will support studies that define components and mechanisms of the immune system that determine such durability.

Applications must propose the use of human cells/tissues to decipher the human response elicited through vaccination. Animal studies also may be included to elucidate mechanistic pathways not easily accomplished with human samples.

Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Integrated HIV/AIDS Planning and Resource Allocation Cooperative Agreement

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2023 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Integrated HIV/AIDS Planning and Resource Allocation Cooperative Agreement.

The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to provide technical assistance to RWHAP Parts A and B recipients and their planning bodies regarding: 1) the integration of HIV planning across systems of HIV prevention and care within their jurisdictions; and 2) the development, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and improvement of Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plans (Integrated Plans), including Statewide Coordinated Statements of Need (SCSN), submitted to HRSA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in response to legislative and programmatic requirements.

RWHAP Parts A and B recipients and planning bodies use Integrated Plans to better inform and coordinate HIV prevention and care program planning, priority setting, resource allocation, and continuous quality improvement efforts to meet the HIV service delivery needs within their jurisdictions.

Brain Health

Large Scale Integrated Mapping and Molecular Profiling of Cell Ensembles and/or Cell-Types Mediating Opioid Action in the Rodent Brain (R01 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) aims to support complementary research programs that adopt innovative scalable technologies to inventory, register and profile cellular ensembles and/or cell-types that produce and/or respond to opioids in the rodent brain, or that are engaged during different stages of opioid use (acute, chronic, withdrawal, abstinence, relapse).

Emphasis is on approaches capable of integrating data generated through molecular profiling, at single-cell resolution, with other data modalities, such as cellular activity, connectivity and/or spatial localization, collected from the same cells or cell-types.

The overarching goal of the FOA is to deliver multimodal reference datasets that will constitute useful resources to the research community and will provide a foundational biological framework to advance the understanding and treatment of opioid-associated states.

Mechanistic links between diet, lipid metabolism, and tumor growth and progression (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to request applications that propose mechanistic investigations of the links between diet, lipid metabolism and tumor growth and progression.

It is anticipated that this program will support fundamental studies designed to identify and define the molecular mechanisms through which lipid metabolism mediates tumor growth and progression, focusing specifically on the central role lipids play in linking diet with the biology of cancer; bridge the historically divided fields of nutrition and molecular metabolism; and stimulate research and tool development in this emerging area, which faces particular challenges because of the complexity of lipid biochemistry.

Deadline: 2/17/2023

Innovative Molecular and Cellular Analysis Technologies for Basic and Clinical Cancer Research (R61 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Through this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) intends to accelerate the development of evidence-based cancer-related interventions that reflect the diversity of people, places, contexts, and settings in the United States.

Specifically, this FOA will support research that tests the impact of cancer-related interventions on cancer-related outcomes across the cancer control continuum using a pragmatic trial study design. This FOA will use the UG3/UH3 phased cooperative agreement mechanism.
