NIGMS Support for Complex System Centers

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) announces a request for applications (RFA) for the establishment of new academic Centers of Excellence in Complex Biomedical Systems Research (CE/CBSR). This initiative is the most recent of a suite of similar initiatives emphasizing computational approaches to analyzing and modeling the behavior of cellular and higher level biological phenomena within the NIGMS mission. Investigators may apply for planning grants of up to $150,000 in direct costs per year for up to 3 years, or center grants of up to $2 million in direct costs per year for 5 years.

The deadline for both types of applications is October 11, 2001; letters of intent should be received by September 1, 2001. For detailed information on this RFA and other NIGMS complexity initiatives, see
