Reflecting an overall trend in U.S. export growth, Louisiana’s first quarter 2011 worldwide merchandise exports increased by 47.7 percent in value compared to 2010, according to a report issued today by the World Trade Center of New Orleans. At almost $15 billion, it is the highest single-quarter on record, exceeding the fourth quarter of 2010 by more than $1 billion. Total U.S. exports were up 18 percent for the quarter, with Louisiana surging to 4th in state rankings, compared to 8th for the same period in 2010. Only Texas, California, and New York ranked ahead of Louisiana in value of exports. Among the top ten exporting states, Louisiana had the highest rate of growth. Louisiana’s principal export markets for the first quarter were China ($2.35 billion), Mexico ($1.28 billion), and the Netherlands ($926 million), followed by Japan, Korea, Egypt, and Canada.

The PH/TBI Research Program was established in FY07 for the purpose of complementing ongoing Department of Defense (DOD) efforts towards promoting a better standard of care for PH (including post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD]) and TBI in the areas of prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. This includes research to benefit service members, their family members, veterans, and other beneficiaries of the Military Health System (MHS). A total of $586 million (M) has been appropriated to support biomedical research focused on PH/TBI research efforts from FY07 through FY11, with $341.6M being assigned to the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC). The FY11 appropriation that has been assigned to USAMRMC is $100M. Approximately $5M of this appropriation has been assigned to the USAMRMC, Military Operational Joint Program Committee 5 for this Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity. The execution agent for this solicitation is the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).

I recently distributed to those on campus that I feel are eligible to respond to the NIH IDeA Call for Papers and Limited Competition. Below is the eligibility section. Some of our eligible disciplines would be bioengineering, Medicinal Chemistry, Bioinformatics, PSYC and BIOS. If you are interested and did not receive notice, please contact me at vcresearch@uno.edu. The applicant institution for an IDeA-CTR Program will be an Academic Health Center in an IDeA-eligible state (the list of states and other eligibility requirements can be found in Section III. Eligibility Information). For the purposes of this FOA, an Academic Health Center is defined as a post-baccalaureate graduate degree granting institution, or an affiliated organization, with ongoing research and/or academic programs in the biomedical sciences (e.g., medicine and its related basic and clinical specialties, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, public health, biostatistics, epidemiology, and/or bioengineering).
