NIH Funding Opportunities - 1 hour 41 min ago
Funding Opportunity PAR-18-802 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages Small Business Innovation Research (STTR) grant applications from small business concerns (SBCs) proposing commercially-directed research for the development of cancer prevention, diagnosis, or treatment technologies to improve cancer outcomes in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), and low-resource settings in the US. Specifically, the FOA solicits encourages grant applications from SBCs to develop or adapt, apply, and validate existing or emerging technologies into user-friendly products for cancer prevention, diagnosis, or treatment in low-resource settings. These technologies should be practical and affordable in the low-resource settings, including remote or underserved populations within or outside the US. The technologies may include, but are not limited to tools for vaccine dissemination/delivery, imaging, in vitro diagnosis, or treatment of pre-cancerous (pre-neoplastic) or cancerous lesions that are preventable or treatable within low-resource settings. Strong emphasis is placed on technologies that directly provide or immediately lead to treatment options available in the local health system.

"The National Climate Assessment that includes NASA and it includes the Department of Energy, and it includes NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), has clearly stated that it is extremely likely... that human activity is the dominant cause of global warming, and I have no reason to doubt the science that comes from that," Jim Bridenstine said at a Senate hearing.

Global warming may have 'devastating' effects on rice: study

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Wed, 05/23/2018 - 12:33

As carbon dioxide rises due to the burning of fossil fuels, rice will lose some of its protein and vitamin content, putting millions of people at risk of malnutrition, scientists warned on Wednesday. "We are showing that global warming, climate change and particularly greenhouse gases -- carbon dioxide -- can have an impact on the nutrient content of plants we eat," said co-author Adam Drewnowski, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington. Protein and vitamin deficiencies can lead to growth-stunting, birth defects, diarrhea, infections and early death.
