Limited Competition for the Continuation of the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Cohort Study (UC4)
Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-14-508 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to continue the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study. The overarching goal of SEARCH is to provide population-based data on the incidence and prevalence of diabetes and its complications in U.S. youth. SEARCH has recruited a cohort of youth with diabetes who have been followed longitudinally. The purpose of this FOA is to continue follow-up of the SEARCH cohort to understand the clinical course of youth-onset diabetes, including the incidence of acute and chronic complications, including mortality, and processes of care and quality of life.

Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Centers (P50)
Funding Opportunity RFA-ES-14-002 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages grant applications to support a transdisciplinary program of basic and applied research to examine the effects of environmental factors on childrens health and well-being. Research conducted through the Centers should include substantive areas of science in childrens health while incorporating innovative technologies and approaches and links to the environment. This program encourages strong links between disciplines in the basic, applied, clinical and public health sciences to prevent disease and promote health of all children.

Data Integration and Analysis Tools: Accessible Resources for Integration and Analysis of Carbohydrate and Glycoconjugate Structural, Analytical, and Interaction Data in the Context of Comparable Gene, Protein, and Lipid Data (R34)
Funding Opportunity RFA-RM-14-012 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The Common Fund Program - Accelerating Translation of Glycoscience: Integration and Accessibility - aims to develop accessible and affordable new tools and technologies for studying carbohydrates that will enable researchers in all biomedical fields to dramatically advance our understanding of the roles of these complex molecules in health and disease and to not abandon glycan discovery due to the difficulty or inability to study them. The program will invest in three areas: facile methods and technologies for carbohydrate synthesis, accessible tools for probing and analyzing carbohydrates, and carbohydrate data integration and analysis tools. This R34 Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for preliminary research and formation of research teams that will lay the groundwork for the inclusive, community-driven development of accessible resources for integration and analysis of carbohydrate and glycoconjugate structural, analytical, and interaction data in the context of comparable gene, protein, and lipid data. A subsequent FOA will invite applications for full support of that effort.

Novel and Innovative Tools to Facilitate Identification, Tracking, Manipulation, and Analysis of Glycans and their Functions (U01)
Funding Opportunity RFA-RM-14-013 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The Common Fund Program - Accelerating Translation of Glycoscience: Integration and Accessibility- aims to develop accessible and affordable new tools and technologies for studying carbohydrates that will enable researchers in all biomedical fields to dramatically advance our understanding of the roles of these complex molecules in health and disease and to not abandon glycan discovery due to the difficulty or inability to study them. This FOA solicits development of new, more easily accessible tools, reagents, and technologies to facilitate identification, tracking, manipulation, and analysis of glycans with their biological binding partners and determine their functions. This initiative may build on efforts that interface with existing technologies and procedures to make them easier to access and use. As applicable, efforts must consider: factors for scale-up; efforts to make instrumentation broadly accessible and cost-effective for the end-user; and compatibility of data generated with integration into existing databases.

Facile Methods and Technologies for Synthesis of Biomedically Relevant Carbohydrates (U01)
Funding Opportunity RFA-RM-14-015 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The Common Fund Program - Accelerating Translation of Glycoscience: Integration and Accessibility - aims to develop accessible and affordable new tools and technologies for studying carbohydrates that will enable researchers in all biomedical fields to dramatically advance our understanding of the roles of these complex molecules in health and disease and to not abandon glycan discovery due to the difficulty or inability to study them. This FOA is intended to support development of new approaches (methods and technologies) to facilitate the rapid and affordable synthesis, production, and/or functionalization of bio-medically relevant glycans and glyco-conjugates representing 1) mammalian glycomes and 2) microbial glycans.
