NSF Medical Research/Disease-related goal restrictions
NSF Grant Proposal Guidelines Chapter 1. B:
Unless otherwise stated in the program guidelines, research with disease-related goals, including work on the etiology, diagnosis or treatment of physical or mental disease, abnormality, or malfunction in human beings or animals, is normally not supported. Animal models of such conditions or the development or testing of drugs or other procedures for their treatment also are not eligible for support.
Exceptions:
However, research in bioengineering, with diagnosis- or treatment-related goals, that applies engineering principles to problems in biology and medicine while advancing engineering knowledge is eligible for support. Bioengineering research to aid persons with disabilities also is eligible."

Faculty Early Career Development Program

 

NSF 17-537 Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program

Amount of funding:
The CAREER award, including indirect costs, is expected to total a minimum of $400,000 for the 5-year duration, with the following exceptions:
Awards for proposals to the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO), the Directorate for Engineering (ENG), or the Office of Polar Programs (OPP) are expected to total a minimum of $500,000 for the 5-year duration.
The PECASE award is an honorary award for all NSF recipients and does not provide additional funds.
Purpose:
The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.
PECASE: Each year NSF selects nominees for the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from among the most meritorious recent CAREER awardees. Selection for this award is based on two important criteria: 1) innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology that is relevant to the mission of NSF, and 2) community service demonstrated through scientific leadership, education or community outreach. PECASE eligibility requires that the applicant be a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or U.S. permanent resident by the time of nomination.
Eligibility: assistant professors with tenure-track or equivalent positions
By the Directorate's deadline for submission of CAREER proposals, proposers must meet all of the following eligibility requirements:
Hold a doctoral degree by the deadline date in a field supported by NSF;
Be untenured until October 1 following the deadline; and
Have not previously received a CAREER award (prior or concurrent Federal support for other types of awards or for non-duplicative research does not preclude eligibility);
AND:
By October 1st following the deadline for submission of CAREER proposals:
Be employed in a tenure-track (or tenure-track-equivalent) position as an assistant professor (with a UTL faculty appt.) (or equivalent title) at an accredited institution located in the U.S., its territories, or possessions, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, that awards degrees in a field supported by NSF; Be employed in a tenure-track position (or tenure-track-equivalent position) as an assistant professor (or equivalent title) at an organization located in the U.S., its territories or possessions, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico that is a non-profit, non-degree-granting organization such as a museum, observatory, or research lab.

Program Announcement:
https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-15-085.html
Update: NOT-OD-EB-16-011: The purpose of this Notice is to clarify the programmatic goals and specific interests of the interagency funding opportunity announcement (FOA) PAR-15-085, Predictive Multiscale Models for Biomedical, Biological, Behavioral, Environmental and Clinical Research (U01). The application submission process will remain the same. This Notice is providing additional information:
(1) The funding components from the seven funding agencies are very interested in jointly funding integrated research efforts incorporating research on non-standard multiscale modeling methods within a single project. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit applications to develop multiscale models that are high risk, and push boundaries for novel multiscale modeling methodologies. Applications should emphasize addressing the multiscale modeling methodological challenges, while using domain applications as testbeds for addressing these challenges.
(2) The Specific Interests section below lists updated interest statements from all 22 funding components. Below, are excerpted statements from the six non-NIH funding components, describing examples of non-standard multiscale modeling methods:
ARO: innovative modeling methods, especially from traditionally "pure" areas of mathematics such as topology, differential geometry, and algebra
DOE: new methods for characterizing and imaging molecular systems, and to synthesize and redesign biology processes
FDA: models to predict whether a proposed medical product design will function properly and safely
NASA: an overall conceptual framework or organizing principle by which we might better understand how the organism as a whole responds to space flight
NSF: Advances in methods and tools for predictive modeling, simulation, and analysis of emergent behavior in complex multiscale systems are of interest, including the issues of verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification across scales.
ONR: Basic research in modeling dynamical properties of networks and determining causal effects and influences is needed in networks of interconnected nodes such as social and biological/neural networks
It would be helpful if the applicants identify the agencies that may have interest with specific research efforts within the potential research proposal. Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with the Scientific/Research contacts based on the Specific Interests of the participating funding components.
