Nominations must reach the Office of Keio University Medical Science Fund by March 10, 2014.
Call for Letters of Intent: Human Frontier Science Program Research Grants
HFSP supports international preferably intercontinental collaborations in basic life science research. Applications are invited for grants to support innovative approaches to understanding complex mechanisms of living organisms.
Applicants are expected to develop novel lines of research distinct from their ongoing research. Preliminary results are not required.
Program Grants are for independent scientists at all stages of their careers while Young Investigators’ Grants are for teams of scientists who are all within 5 years of establishing an independent laboratory and within 10 years of obtaining their PhDs. Both provide 3 years support for 2 – 4 member teams, with not more than one member from any one country, unless critical for the innovative nature of the project. Awards are dependent upon team size and successful teams will receive up to $450,000 per year. The principal applicant must be located in one of the HFSP member countries but co-investigators may be located in any country.
For further information see the HFSP web site (www.hfsp.org). Teams must register via the web site by March 20th 2014 so as to submit a letter of intent online by the March 27th 2014 deadline.

Call for Applications: 2014 Young Investigator Award and Lectureship in the Fields of Nanofabrication and Nanotechnology
Sponsored by Elsevier
Honoring and Promoting a Young researcher active in the fields of Nanofabrication and Nanotechnology for Electronics, MEMS and Life Sciences
Micro Electronic Engineering (MEE) is proud to celebrate 30 years (1983-2013) of contribution in the field of processing for Micro- and Nano-scale Device and System fabrication. In the past 30 years MEE has expanded from the field of microelectronics to the fields of Nanotechnology and Microsystems following the rapid proliferation of microelectronics into many new areas and applications. Beyond electronics, MEE is now also focusing on fabrication of photonic, plasmonic, bioelectronic, electromechanical and fluidic devices and systems and their applications in the broad areas of electronics, energy, life sciences, and environment.
As part of the celebrations, MEE is inaugurating this series of Young Investigator Awards and MEE Lectureships. The inaugural Lectureship will be presented at the 2014 MNE2014 Conference in September, 2014 in Switzerland. The Lectureship award will include $1000, plus travel costs to present the award lecture at the September 2014 MNE meeting, while the MNE2014 conference will cover registration and accommodation costs.
Requirements for Candidates
Application is open to early-career researchers of any nationality from universities, research centers, and industry. The applicant must have earned his or her PhD degree after January 1st 2006. The applicant must have published papers as a main or first author in MEE. Candidates should apply themselves and MUST include the name and contact details of one main nominator, plus the name and contact details of 2 more people who can provide recommendation letters.

Broad Medical Research Program Inflammatory Bowel Disease Grants
Recognizing that some of the most promising research in this area of medicine is at the very early stages of development, the Broad Medical Research Program funds studies and investigation of new ideas in their initial exploratory stage that do not yet qualify for funding from more traditional sources like the National Institutes of Health. By supporting innovative and promising ideas, we hope to advance the research so it is likely to receive continuation funding from other sources. The Broad Medical Research Program awards one- and two-year grants for basic or clinical IBD research projects to qualified investigators from around the world who work in a nonprofit academic organization. Grant applications submitted to the Broad Medical Research Program are not reviewed by a committee. Instead, leading investigators in each research area review proposals and provide suggestions for improvement. Over 1,900 reviewers from 41 countries have participated in the review process. Proposals are selected for funding based on their scientific strength, innovation and relevance to IBD diagnosis, therapy or prevention. To expedite the research, we accept applications year-round and fund approved applications in about three months.Because we believe that great ideas could come from non-traditional sources, we encourage basic and clinical investigators and scientists not currently working in IBD and interdisciplinary teams to apply.Application ProcessThere is a two-step process for requesting funds from the Broad Medical Research Program:1. The first step is to submit a Letter of Interest. Decisions on Letters of Interest are based on external expert review of the proposal and usually are made within four to six weeks. Instructions for Letters of Interest can be found at www.broadmedical.org.2. If we are interested in pursuing a project, an invitation is extended to submit a full grant application. At that time, the grant application instructions and forms are sent to the Principal Investigator. Decisions on grant applications are made based on external review by subject experts and usually take eight to 10 weeks.There are no deadlines or specific dates for applications. Proposals are accepted and reviewed year-round.Proposal Review• Most Letters of Interest and all grant applications will be evaluated by active investigators in the specific research area.• Reviewers are located throughout the world and are chosen carefully not to have conflicts of interest with the applicants.• Grant proposals will be selected for funding based on their scientific strength, innovative value and relevance to IBD diagnosis, therapy or prevention.• Decisions on Letters of Interest will usually be made within 4-6 weeks.• Decisions on grant applications will usually be made within 8-10 weeks.Funding Guidelines• Preference is given to proposals with strong potential of clinical benefit to IBD patients in the foreseeable future.• Funding can be requested for up to two years.• Funding of a second year will be based on an evaluation of the progress and the perceived value of the findings from the first year of funding.
