Molecular Mechanisms of Circadian Clocks in Aging Tissues

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) invites R01 applications on the roles of peripheral and extra-SCN brain circadian clocks during "aging."  Studies that will explore new directions in aging research and make use of state-of-the-art -omic technologies, imaging, single cell studies, and systems biology approaches are encouraged.

For further information it is essential that potential applicants carefully read the full text of the FOA. For questions and to discuss NIA specific interests contact the appropriate NIA staff member listed in the announcement. http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-AG-13-007.html 

Evaluating Obstructive Sleep Apnea Dental Device Treatment Compliance

Existing oral appliances are approved for the medical treatment of snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea but lack specific capabilities necessary to fulfill regulatory requirements and conduct population-based effectiveness research. Integration of oral appliance and electronic monitoring technologies is needed to develop enhanced oral devices capable of addressing regulatory requirements and facilitating population-based research and clinical trials monitoring adherence and effectiveness of sleep apnea treatment.

This is an SBIR/STTR CONTRACT funding opportunity, NOT a "grant". It is essential that you read the full text of the topic, and read the NIH FY2013 Contract Solicitation on the requirements and process involved in the contract competition.  Use the following link for more information: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/funding/sbir/funding/contract_topics/contracttopics.htm
