Development and Application of Nanotechnology-based Tools to Understand Mechanisms of Bioremediation (R01): Purpose. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is announcing a new funding opportunity to support individual research projects as part of the Superfund Basic Research and Training Program (SBRP). The objective for this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to enhance our understanding of the basic structural and functional properties of biological populations that are involved in the bioremediation of hazardous substances by integrating or adapting innovative nanotechnology based tools for sensing, detecting, and elucidating processes at the molecular and nano-scale. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. The NIEHS intends to commit a total of $2 million to fund six to eight grants that will be awarded in Fiscal Year 2009. An applicant may request up to 3 years of support. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Eligible Institutions/Organizations. You may submit (an) application(s) if your organization is an accredited domestic institution of higher education. Eligible Project Directors/Principal Investigators (PDs/PIs). Individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research are invited to work with their institution/organization to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support. Number of Applications. Applicants may submit more than one application, provided each application is scientifically distinct. Renewals and Resubmissions. Neither competing renewals (formerly competing continuation ) nor resubmissions will be accepted for this R01. At this time, it is not known if this FOA will be reissued. Number of PDs/PIs. More than one PD/PI, or multiple PDs/PIs, may be designated on the application. Application Materials. See Section IV.1 for application materials. General Information.
