Biomedical Engineering: NOTICE: Three Program Synopses Changes may be occurring after the close of the August 15 to September 15, 2008 Window-of-Opportunity:(1) An additional CBET program may be added to the Biomedical Engineering and Engineering Healthcare cluster. This program may include the topics of Bioengineering (e.g. biosensing, imaging and food processing).(2) The content of two existing CBET programs may be re-distributed among all three of these programs. The two existing programs are:(a) the Biotechnology, Biochemical, and Biomass Engineering program [1491], and(b) the Biomedical Engineering program [5345].Proposals that are received in either [1491] or [5345], that best fit with the new program, may be transferred internally. Stay tuned for further developments.The Biomedical Engineering (BME) program primarily supports fundamental, transformative, and discovery research applied to biological systems. The research projects should: * Develop novel ideas integrating engineering and life science principles in solving biomedical problems that serve humanity * Focus on high impact transforming methods and technologies and include models and tools for understanding and control of biological systems; fundamental improvements in deriving information from cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems; new approaches to the design of structures and materials for eventual medical use; new methods of understanding and controlling living systems; information technology relevant to biotechnology including bioinformatics; and new novel methods of reducing health care costs through new technologies * Emphasize the advancement of fundamental engineering knowledge, possibly leading to the development of new methods and technologies * Emphasize novel application of existing technologies to advance fundamental knowledge of both engineering and life sciences * Encourage initial evaluation of discovery-level research in a clinical setting but not supporting clinical trials * Highlight multi-disciplinary nature, integrating engineering and the life sciences * Balance theory, mathematical modeling, and experimentThe long-term impact of the projects can be related to disease diagnosis and/or treatment, improved health care delivery, or product development.Projects submitted to the BME Program must advance both engineering and biomedical sciences.The duration of unsolicited awards is generally one to three years. The average annual award size for the program is $80,000 (including indirect cost). Please check the NSF Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems Division (CBET) Home Page for the two annual submission windows for unsolicited proposals. Small equipment proposals up to $100,000 will also be considered and may be submitted during these windows. Any proposal received outside the announced dates will be returned without review.The duration of CAREER awards is five years. The submission deadline for Engineering CAREER proposals is in July every year. Please see the following URL for more information: Proposals for Small Grants for Exploratory Research (SGER), Conferences, Workshops, and Supplements may be submitted at any time, but must be discussed with the program director before submission.Please refer to the Grant Proposal Guide (GPG), January 2008, (NSF 08-1) when you prepare your proposal. Chapter II, especially, will assist you. The GPG is available for download at:
