The National Science Foundation--Simons Foundation Collaboration on a National Institute for Theory and Mathematics in Biology supports a research institute to enable innovative research at the intersection of mathematical and biological sciences to facilitate new developments of biology inspired mathematical theories, methodologies, and innovative modeling approaches to advance the understanding of challenging biological problems. 

The Department of Health and Human Services, National Institute for General Medical Sciences, Maximizing Investigators' Research Award is a grant to provide support for a program of research in an early stage investigator's laboratory that falls within the mission of NIGMS. It is anticipated that this FOA will enable investigators to apply earlier in their independent research careers, allowing them to secure grant funding that will launch and sustain successful research careers.
