Arnold & Mabel Beckman Foundation | Beckman Young Investigators Program Information - 0 views

  •  
    Projects proposed for the BYI program should be truly innovative, high-risk, and show promise for contributing to significant advances in chemistry and the life sciences. They should represent a departure from current research directions rather than an extension or expansion of existing programs. Proposed research that cuts across traditional boundaries of scientific disciplines is encouraged. Proposals that open new avenues of research in chemistry and life sciences by fostering the invention of methods, instruments and materials will be given additional consideration.

    The BYI program funds promising young scientists early in their careers who have not yet received a major award from another organization. Proposals that already have substantial funding will not be considered for the BYI award (see eligibility for more information).

    Projects are normally funded for a period of four years. Grants are in the range of $600,000 over the term of the project, contingent upon demonstrated progress after the second year of the award.

Preventing Intentional Overdosing of Solid Oral Drugs - 0 views

  •  
    Currently, the drugs are designed in such a way that the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) is immediately released in the stomach and absorbed in the bloodstream, rapidly relieving the patient from his/her pain (left-hand side).
    In case multiple doses are taken all at once, a (potentially toxic) supratherapeutic amount of API immediately gets into the user's bloodstream (center). This amount is illicitly used to induce euphoria and could be potentially toxic. Grünenthal's intention is to design a drug formulation that guarantees the API's release profile in case of proper therapeutical usage. However, in case multiple drug units are taken, the release of API, that is available for absorption (right-hand side), will be limited or, at least, decreased to avoid overdosing.

Gene Delivery Technology Using Non-Viral Vectors - 0 views

  •  
    Adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors, currently considered highly effective, have numerous advantages, such as high expression efficiency, a wide variety of organ-/tissue-specificity, long-lasting expression, and low pathogenicity. However, AAV also has disadvantages: the limitation in size of transgene it can carry; the difficulty in producing it; and that many human adults possess neutralizing antibodies.
    Therefore, the client has issued this open request to seek a gene delivery technology using non-viral vectors which have greater effect than AAV vectors, or which can overcome the disadvantages of AAV vectors. A technology using a device is also welcome.

BLM-(MT), Prescribed Fire Assistance - 0 views

  •  
    Background: The BLM routinely requires assistance to implement prescribed fire projects. These projects are utilized to reduce accumulations of hazardous fuels, improve wildlife habitat, and reduce the negative effects of wildfire. The BLM would like to continue to utilize a qualified recipient for prescribed fire projects on BLM managed lands. Due to time constraints and rules and regulations inherent to prescribed fire operations, the recipient must be red carded at the appropriate levels for the assigned projects, and should be a close, available resource. The goal is to develop a good working relationship and understanding of the roles and responsibilities required to implement and manage prescribed fire operations. Objectives: Select parcels of BLM, Montana lands have been identified as candidates for fuels reduction treatments. The objective is to effectively and efficiently treat these parcels in accordance with BLMs policy and standards and the National Fire Plan. Public Benefit: Reduce accumulations of natural and activity fuels on BLM managed lands across Montana as determined by the NEPA process. The projects will efficiently reduce the risk to the public and natural resources from wildland fire.

Fossil Fuel Large-Scale Pilots - 0 views

  •  
    This FOA seeks applications for projects to design, construct, and operate large-scale pilots of transformational coal technologies aimed at enabling step change improvements in coal powered system performance, efficiency, and cost of electricity. The FOA will be carried out in three phases, with a down-select between phases. Phase I, Feasibility, will be aimed at supporting recipients' efforts to secure team commitments, including host sites and recipient cost share for Phase II, update the preliminary cost estimate and schedule for design, construction, and operation, and complete an environmental information volume. Projects selected for Phase II, Design, will complete a Front End Engineering Design study, secure construction-operation cost share funding, and complete the National Environmental Policy Act process. Finally, at least two projects will be selected for Phase III, Construction-Operation, which will support construction and operation of the large-scale pilot facilities. Any recipients proceeding to Phase III will be required to utilize domestic coal and/or domestic coal-derived fuels in the operation period. Applicants to Phase I who plan to primarily use other fuel sources during operations will be judged non-responsive. While only detailed Phase I applications are being solicited at this time, information relating to preliminary plans to carry out Phases II and III will be required to assess the potential viability of the overall project.

Formulation and Estimation of the Tradeoff between Fuels and Preparedness Budgets using... - 0 views

  •  
    The objectives of this research are to use simulated data from three or more national parks to econometrically estimate a production function where fuels and preparedness budgets are used to improve the value of the landscape. The landscape value is improved through fuel treatments aimed at hazardous fuel reductions and ecosystem improvement. It is also improved by preparedness through loss mitigation of fire affected values and by introducing fire in areas that promote ecosystem health. This research will, for the first time, quantify how the two programs (fuels and preparedness) interact to mutually improve the value of the landscape and associated natural and human resources. The second objective is to locate current programs on the econometrically derived value-added surface and to also identify how to manage increasing or declining budgets.
