The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) has partnered
with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science
Foundation (NSF)to fund new opportunities for conducting
research onboard the International Space Station (ISS). To learn more
about how you can get involved, plan to attend the upcoming informational webinar.
►Tissue Chip Research Opportunity
Sponsored by the National Center for Advancing Translational
Sciences (NCATS) and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and
Bioengineering (NIBIB), both part of NIH
CASIS and NIH are sponsoring this funding opportunity focused on human
physiology and disease research onboard the ISS National Laboratory as
part of the Tissue Chip for Drug Screening program.
Data from this research will help scientists develop and advance novel
technologies to improve human health on Earth. This opportunity is part
of a four-year collaboration through which NCATS and NIBIB will provide,
subject to funding availability, up to $7.6 million for flight
CASIS and NSF are sponsoring a funding opportunity to support
enhancements in the fields of transformative tissue engineering via
space-based research and development. Up to $1.8 million will be awarded
for multiple flight projects. Before submitting a full proposal to NSF,
all interested parties must submit a Preliminary Feasibility Review form to CASIS. Interested parties should submit the review form no later than January 5, 2018.
Final Proposal Submission Window: January 30 -February 12, 2018 View NSF 18-514 for solicitation details.
►Attend an informational webinar on December 14, 2017, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. EST to learn more about both opportunities. Register here.
