Up one level
Department of Energy – ANH Training Programs 2008
$750,000 ($717,000 actual) from the Department of Energy (DoE) will support summer internship training opportunities for 2-5 undergraduate students per year, award 2-year fellowships to graduate students for collaborative , interdisciplinary research, provide fellowship opportunities for post-doctoral researchers and create the prestigious ANH Distinguished Investigator Award to attract prominent leaders of innovation in the field of nanomedicine to be featured as Keynote Speakers and foster new collaborations.
NASA – ANH Training Programs 2008
$846,000 ($813,490 actual) from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will support an ANH Training Program for Space Nanomedicine. Similar to the FY 2008 DoE funding, the NASA funding will also support summer internships for undergraduates, fellowships for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. The NASA support will also provide summer internships to high school teachers in Texas to inspire the translation and improve awareness of cutting-edge nanotechnology being performed in the ANH Community to select high school classrooms.
US Department of Health and Human Services – High-End Instrumentation 2008
$615,722 in equipment funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HRSA). Following an internal ANH request for proposals for high-end instrumentation that would enhance the collective capability and infrastructure, the funding will be used for the acquisition of a Deep Reactive Ion Etching System to support biomedical research in the Greater Houston Area (University of Houston) and the purchase of a Customized Nanolog Spectrofluorometer enhanced with tunable Ti:Sapp laser to support nano-biosensor and materials research (University of Houston).
Department of Defense - 2008
$4M (actual $3.4M) appropriations will be used to purchase of core equipment items, upgrade existing ANH Core Facilities, to supplement research activities among the ANH institutions and recruit and train new specialized personnel. The intent of this program is to foster multidisciplinary nanomedicine projects and to encourage communication between ANH member institutions that may lead to future extramural funding. The ANH has demonstrated that by providing its researchers with seed funding to facilitate cutting-edge research, this significantly increases the potential to achieve larger, peer-reviewed grants, in addition to contributing to the development of new publications and intellectual property. The ANH will also sponsor programmatically more developed collaborative nanomedicine projects in efforts to facilitate the accrual of scientific critical mass needed to acquire competitive advantage when pursuing Center-of-Excellence level Federal funding opportunities. 3 Pre-Center Grants and 10 Seed Grants have been selected and are due to commence in September 2009. Further details will be added to each at a later stage:
Department of Defense (DoD) – ANH Planning Grants 2007
The $1.1M ($934K actual) from the Department of Defense (DoD) was allocated towards interdisciplinary research in the form of a new ANH Planning Grant Program. These planning grants were awarded to multi-institutional teams preparing for future Centers of Excellence opportunities. The remaining funds were reserved for critical equipment purchases by the Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB).
