For those interested in sorting through SBIR/STTR solicitations, try the open topic search feature found online at http://www.zyn.com/sbir/. For example, if one were to type in littoral, they would be taken to Navy SBIR 2011.3 Topic N113-175 entitled, ďOptical Perception System for Situational Awareness and Contact Detection for Unmanned Surface Vessels.† Topics for this solicitation open on August 29, 2011 and closes on September 28, 2011.† Interested responders may communicate with topic authors up to August 28th. Contact information is provided following a descriptive sketch of the project.
The search system is not perfect, so exercise some caution.† By typing in words such as acoustic, burial, geolocation, and weather, interesting STTR topics should have been identified too. The below topics, which relate to UNO research thrusts, were found by searching the specific Navy STTR solicitation. See if you can find the below topics using http://www.zyn.com/sbir/.
N11A-T012 Emitter Geolocation Enhancements for Time-Sensitive Targeting and Naval Battlespace Awareness
N11A-T017 Underwater Sensor System Autonomous Burial and Operation
N11A-T026 Low cost acoustic transmitter
N11A-T036 Weather and Environmental Software Tool for System Requirements Investigation

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).

Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program Funding Opportunity for Fiscal Year 2011 The Department of Defense (DOD) Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program's (PRCRP) vision is to improve quality of life by decreasing the impact of cancer on service members, their families, and the American public. This program is administered by the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) through the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP). Fiscal Year 2011 (FY11) Defense Appropriation Act provides for $16 million to the DOD PRCRP to research cancers not addressed in breast, prostate, lung (excluding mesothelioma), and ovarian cancer research programs currently executed and managed by the Office of the CDMRP. The funds provided are directed to be used to conduct research for the following topic areas: Blood Cancers, Colorectal Cancer, Genetic Cancer Research, Kidney Cancer, Listeria Vaccine for Cancer, Melanoma and Other Skin Cancers, Mesothelioma, Pancreatic Cancer, Pediatric Cancers, Radiation Protection Utilizing Nanotechnology Visionary Postdoctoral fellowship Awards of $240,000 for direct costs *Research must be in one or more of the FY11 PRCRP Topic Areas *Supports postdoctoral fellows training in the laboratory of early career investigators (mentor) with expertise in one or more of the FY11 PRCRP Topic Areas *Supports postdoctoral training to include a budget option for research supplies *Applications must not address breast, prostate, lung (excluding Mesothelioma), and ovarian cancer research *Preliminary data not required *Clinical trials will not be supported All applications must conform to the program announcement and general application instructions that are available for electronic downloading from the Grants.gov website. The application package containing the required forms for this award mechanism will also be found on Grants.gov. A pre-application is required and must be submitted through the CDMRP eReceipt website (https://cdmrp.org) prior to August 10, 2011.

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).

On Monday, C. Reid Nichols President of Marine Information Resources Corporation (MIRC) gave a presentation regarding collaboration opportunities between MIRC and UNO.  I believe we can develop a strong interaction.

During the presentation he mentioned the STEM BAA that has recently been released.  The Office of Naval Research (ONR) will fund  The purpose of this announcement is to receive proposals in support of the Office of Naval Research’s mission of scientific outreach and education in working to develop the next generation of scientists capable of providing support to the continued development of critical technologies in support of the Department of Defense.  This is an excellent chance to fund innovative programs to educate K-12 or college students in STEM disciplines. Please see this link:

       http://www.onr.navy.mil/~/media/Files/Funding-Announcements/BAA/10-023-STEM-BAA.ashx

 

The period of performance of the awards ranges from twelve to thirty-six months. ONR plans to fund individual awards up to $200,000 per year. However, they indicate that cost proposals for larger amounts will be considered, when appropriate.  I will be working with several departments to develop STEM proposals in response to this BAA.  If you are interested please contact me.

On March 24, 2011, the LA EPSCoR office issued a request for proposals (RFP) in anticipation of the FY2011 Department of Energy EPSCoR Implementation Award competition.  This was done proactively to provide the greatest amount of time possible for the preparation of proposals. The RFP contained a timeline that required a Notice of Intent to be submitted by April 18, with full proposals due on May 2. Because the Department of Energy has not yet issued its Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for this competition—which would contain critical guidelines for proposal preparation—the timeline contained in the Board's RFP is no longer valid.  As soon as DOE issues the FY2011 FOA, we will revise the RFP to provide specific guidance on any additional or new requirements contained in the FOA, and revise the timeline accordingly.  Please be aware that there may be a very short turn-around time, depending upon the due dates set forth by DOE.

This announcement has also been posted to the Board's Sponsored Programs website at http://laregents.org. This email has been distributed to all UNO faculty/staff.
