To that end, the Damon Runyon Fellowship Award is designed to provide early career scientists with resources to hone their cancer research skills and explore their own ideas while working with mentors in top universities and cancer research centers. Candidates must apply for the fellowship under the guidance of a sponsor, who must be a scientist (tenured, tenure-track, or equivalent position) capable of providing mentorship to the fellow. Awards are intended to support the fellow under direct supervision of the sponsor.
The foundation encourages all theoretical and experimental research relevant to the study of cancer and the search for cancer causes, mechanisms, therapies, and prevention.
The award provides a stipend of $50,000 per year for three years for Level I funding, and $60,000 per year for three years for Level II funding.
Deadline: August 15th 2014

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is inviting nominations for the 2015 Sloan Research Fellowship, a two-year program designed to stimulate fundamental research by early career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise.
Through the program, fellowships of $50,000 will be awarded to a hundred and twenty-six researchers in recognition of their distinguished performance and unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field. Funds may be used for equipment, technical assistance, professional travel, trainee support, or any other activity directly related to the fellow’s research.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks to stimulate research that will increase the understanding of biological and psychosocial factors associated with development, progression, and repair of chronic wounds (e.g., diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers) and associated adverse outcomes, and to develop and test interventions aimed at preventing the onset of chronic wounds, expediting the healing process, or alleviating wound-related symptoms.
It is anticipated that the findings from this research will expand the body of knowledge needed to identify individuals at the highest risk for developing chronic wounds and to inform the search for tailored treatments to improve outcomes and quality of life for millions of persons at risk for or suffering from chronic wounds.

As part of a collaborative effort with and funding from the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART), the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) seeks creative and innovative proposals for research that examines how information sharing, a key function of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification (SORNA) Act, may have evolved since its implementation.
Specifically, NIJ is interested in assessing how information sharing has changed how criminal justice agents, for example, law enforcement, public safety administrators, correctional administrators, and prosecutors, track, monitor, and prosecute offenders; what types of information are collected and shared; how the public accesses and uses information about sex offenders in their community; and the cost of inter- and intra-jurisdictional information sharing. This research will further the SMART Office’s mission to monitor the impact of SORNA and NIJ’s goal of partnering with federal agencies to improve knowledge and understanding of crime and justice issues through science.
The deadline to apply for funding under this announcement is 11:59 p.m. eastern time on July 7,

This Exploratory/Developmental Research Funding Opportunity intends to support gene function studies in collaboration with the Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN) building upon the NIH Intramural Research Programs Undiagnosed Diseases Program (NIH-UDP).
Responsive applications will propose to investigate the underlying genetics, biochemistry and/or pathophysiology of newly diagnosed diseases in association with the respective gene variant(s) identified through the UDN. In recent years, gene function studies combined with genetic and genomic analyses and metabolic studies have greatly improved diagnoses of these very rare diseases and advanced scientific knowledge of the underlying pathogenesis.
This initiative is funded through the NIH Common Fund, which supports cross-cutting programs that are expected to have exceptionally high impact.
