Summary:

  1. Parker B. Francis Fellowship Program: This fellowship provides research support to clinical and basic scientists embarking on careers in clinical, laboratory or translational science related to Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. The ideal candidate is one with evidence of strong aptitude in research and who is in transition from post-doctoral trainee to independent investigator. It is essential that there be evidence of accomplishment and proficiency in research. Few applicants who are just beginning research training and have only one or two research publications are funded. UIC is limited to two nominations per Department. For more information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/pbffp17.
  2. ┬áNIH – Data Science Research: Personal Health Libraries for Consumers and Patients (R01) PAR 17-159: The National Library of Medicine seeks applications for novel informatics and data science approaches that can help individuals gather, manage and use data and information about their personal health. A goal of this program is to advance research and application by patients and the research community through broadly sharing the results via publication, and through open source mechanisms for data or resource sharing. UIC is limited to one submission. For more information see http://research.uic.edu/funding/limited-submissions/nih-dsr17.
  3. NSF – Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM) NSF 15-528: CCE STEM funds research projects that identify factors that are efficacious in the formation of ethical STEM researchers in all the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports. CCE STEM solicits proposals for research that explores the following: ‘What constitutes ethical STEM research and practice, and which cultural and institutional contexts promote ethical STEM research and practice and why?’ UIC is limited to one submission.
