Grants for virtual exchange between Sweden and South Africa

SASUF (South Africa – Sweden University Forum) aims to build capacity for collaboration between Sweden and South Africa by funding virtual exchange grants. The virtual exchange grants are focused on the creation of activities that enable meaningful, virtual intercultural interaction between students, teachers, researchers and other actors in Sweden and South Africa. Examples of what type of activities that can be funded:

  • Update an already existing course, project, summer school, living lab etc. with virtual elements. This could for instance be by incorporating an exchange of virtual guest lecturers or by virtual projects/assignments for students etc.
  • Plan and implement new joint courses, projects, summer schools, living labs etc. with teachers and students from both countries.

Closing date: November 29, 2022.

Notice of Special Interest: Development of Radiotracers for Diagnosis and Clinical Studies in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and AD-Related Dementias (ADRD): NIH

This Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) invites applications for research grants that propose to develop radiotracers for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for use in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and AD-related dementias (ADRD) research targeting new and/or emerging biological process or molecular pathways that have been shown to be relevant in the etiology and pathophysiology of neurodegeneration.

Deadline: This notice applies to due dates on or after January 5, 2023 and subsequent receipt dates through September 5, 2025.

Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): NOT-AG-22-032

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): BRAIN Initiative: Notice of Support for Research on Interoception Circuits: NIH

The purpose of this announcement is to notify the research community that NIH welcomes BRAIN Initiative applications targeting interoceptive processes and circuits, as appropriate to the goals and requirements of specific BRAIN Initiative FOAs. For this NOSI, interoception includes the processes by which an organism senses, interprets, integrates, and regulates signals originating within itself and represents its internal states. Interoception includes the processes by which an organism senses, interprets, integrates, and regulates internal signals. Here, the action of “sensing” denotes communication from physiological systems outside of the central nervous system (CNS) to the CNS, through the commonly called ascending or afferent pathways, whereas the action of “regulating” refers to the communication from the brain to other physiological systems via descending or efferent pathways. The CNS, especially the brain, is primarily responsible for interpreting and integrating these signals into a representation of the internal world as well as the generation of regulating signals. The systems involved in sensing signals about the internal environment include not only the peripheral nervous system and the CNS but also components of the peripheral internal organs such as vascular, endocrine, and immune systems.

Deadline: This notice applies to due dates on or after June 15, 2023 and subsequent receipt dates through October 3, 2024.

Secondary Analysis of Existing Datasets in Heart, Lung, and Blood Diseases and Sleep Disorders (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH

The goal of this funding opportunity is to stimulate the use of existing human datasets for well-focused secondary analyses to investigate novel scientific ideas or new models, systems, tools, methods, or technologies that have the potential for significant impact on biomedical or biobehavioral research in areas relevant to the NHLBI mission. This FOA actively supports the use of existing database resources to conduct additional analyses secondary to a project's originally-intended primary purpose. Applications may be related to, but must be distinct from, the specific aims of the original data collection. It will not support the collection of new data.

Deadline: November 25, 2022 for AIDS proposals.
