You are invited to join our DER team as we present:Roles and Responsibilities (tips for understanding roles and responsibilities at each stage of the project)
The first seminar of 2022 will engage individuals from DER, OSP, and CGA to provide an overview of the lifecycle of an award - from proposal development to award close-out. Join us for a clearer understanding of the roles and responsibilities at each stage. You will be better prepared to submit fundable proposals and to effectively and efficiently manage subsequent awards from start to finish with the help of your MSU support system. All researchers are welcome and are encouraged to be prepared with any questions.
Funding Opportunities: Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation
NEUROIMAGING AND CSF BIOMARKER PROGRAM
The aim of this RFP is to further develop and validate established
biomarkers for which there is a clear clinical need in Alzheimer's
disease and related dementias. This RFP prioritizes biomarkers with a defined context of use, a clear advantage over other relevant biomarkers, and a path to commercialization and/or clinical use. Learn more Here.
PROGRAM TO ACCELERATE CLINICAL TRIALS (PACT)
The PACT RFP supports IND-enabling studies and early-phase clinical
trials that test promising pharmacological interventions and devices for
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and related dementias. Both disease-modifying
and symptomatic agents will be considered.
This funding opportunity prioritizes diverse drug mechanisms and
modes of action related to the biology of aging and other emerging
therapeutic areas for dementia. Learn more Here.
Jiliang Tang of Michigan State University received the Tao Li Award, the sole recipient of the annual honor at the 2021 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) in Auckland, New Zealand, in December 2021.
Tang is an award-winning associate professor of computer science and engineering (CSE), who has won multiple recognitions in recent years for his work in data mining and machine learning.
Abdol-Hossein Esfahanian, professor and chairperson of the CSE Department, said the ICDM award recognizes excellence in early career researchers who received their doctoral degree less than 10 years ago in the field of data mining and machine learning. It is named for Professor Tao Li who propelled early research in data mining.
“Dr. Tang is a world-class researcher. We are proud of his accomplishments and the recognition he brings to the department, college, and the university,” Esfahanian added.
This honor follows several international recognitions for Tang in recent years. ...
In keeping with its mission and vision, the United States–India Science & Technology Endowment Fund(USISTEF) announces a Call for Ignition Grants titled “Technology-based Energy Solutions: Innovations for Net Zero”. This call is being implemented as a partnership with Social Alpha - a multistage innovation curation and venture development platform for science and technology start-ups. The Call encourages out-of-the-box, innovative ideas from the community to address the goal of getting to net-zero. The objective is to select and support “technology showstoppers” - promising joint U.S.-India S&T based entrepreneurial initiatives that address the development and implementation of new technologies, tools, and systems to address climate and clean energy challenges in the areas of Next-generation Clean and Renewable Energy, Energy Storage and Carbon Sequestration.
The online submission is currently open with a deadline of 15 February 2022. Learn more Here.
ARPA-E issued a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for up to $100
million to support the deployment of novel technologies that can
significantly change how communities, industries and businesses reduce
emissions, promote energy efficiency, and drive grid modernization. The
funding program supports President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda by
lowering emissions, generating good-paying jobs, and securing U.S.
leadership on clean energy technologies.
The program — Seeding Critical Advances for Leading Energy
technologies with Untapped Potential (SCALEUP) — provides further
funding to previous ARPA-E awardees whose projects have been determined
to be feasible for U.S. widespread deployment and commercialization.
SCALEUP selectees will demonstrate a viable path to commercial
deployment and the ability to attract private sector investments.
