FUNDING OPPORTUNITY –Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI)
Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI) are intended to foster the early career development of postdoctoral scientists with backgrounds in the physical/computational sciences whose work addresses biological questions and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research. Applicants are expected to draw upon their training in a scientific field other than biology to propose innovative approaches to answer important questions in the biological sciences. Proposals that include experimental validation of theoretical models are particularly encouraged.
An institution (including its affiliated hospitals or research institutes) may nominate up to FOUR candidates. If the institution nominates more than two, then at least one of the candidates must be a female and at least one of the candidates must be a member of an underrepresented minority group**.
This is a multi-college funding opportunity. The SOM Proposal Selection Committee will review and rank submissions and forward to the Provost's Office. Final nominees will be selected by a review panel to be convened by Deputy Provost Lynn Singer.Internal Deadline: February 13
External Deadline: April 15

NIH CENTER FOR SCIENTIFIC REVIEW NEWSLETTER
The Center for Scientific Review (CSR) has released the January 2008 issues of its newsletter Peer Review Notes. This issue covers a variety of topics that are of interest to investigators.
The first section discusses new benefits for reviewers, such as the movement of study sections to cities besides DC, and the approval of an online review system. The next section covers new input and actions for CSR and NIH, such as the result of their year–long study to improve CSR Review Groups. There is also a section in which study section chairs share insight for applicants. To view the newsletter, click here.

GRANTS.GOV TRANSITIONING FROM PUREEDGE TO ADOBE
In an effort to better serve the grant community and increase site accessibility, Grants.gov has committed to transitioning from the previous PureEdge based application system to an Adobe Reader based application system. The Adobe Reader applications offer more functionality and expansive system compatibility. The Adobe Reader applications are compatible with most operating systems including all Windows (Vista, Windows 2007), Mac OSX (Tiger, Leopard), Linux and UNIX.
The system transition will not affect the application process itself. Grants.gov is working with agencies to identify specific dates when the agencies will transition to Adobe Reader. Some agencies are currently posting opportunities in Adobe. The transition is tentatively scheduled to be completed by the end of fiscal year 2008. During the transition period applicants will need to have both PureEdge and Adobe Reader 8.1.1 software installed on their computers, since not all applications from all agencies are transitioned to Adobe Reader. Both PureEdge and Adobe Reader 8.1.1 software are available for free download on Grants.gov.
