The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Basic Behavioral and Social Science Opportunity Network (OppNet) has issued a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) soliciting Research Conference Grant (R13) applications for scientific meetings aimed at building interdisciplinary research teams in basic behavioral and social science research (b-BSSR). Of potential interest to sleep/circadian researchers would be the focus on (1) accelerate, expand, and/or strengthen the scope of investigation of an existing b-BSSR research domain through the integration of disparate approaches from b-BSSR and allied disciplines; or (2) increase the sophistication of theoretical, methodological, and analytical approaches in b-BSSR. The application due date is Dec. 14, 2010. Get complete details in the FOA (RFA-CA-10-017) on the NIH website.
