The Legislative Assistant for the Government Relations Committee, Priyanka Surio, has shared a potential grant that may be of interest to SRS members who deal with sleep apnea and sleep disorders. 

Specifically, "NIH has developed the Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative. The mission of BD2K is to enable the biomedical research community to use the various types of Big Data for research. To address the growing need for skilled researchers to fully utilize biomedical Big Data, a series of BD2K FOAs have been designed 1) to develop a sufficient cadre of researchers skilled in the science of Big Data and 2) to elevate general competencies in data usage and analysis across the biomedical research workforce."

Application opens on March 1, 2014.  Details of the grant, application process, and deadlines can be found on the DHHS NIH Grant page.
