Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) K12
The Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) Program is soliciting applications for support from junior faculty Ph.D., M.D. and M.D./Ph.D. scientists pursuing a research career in areas relevant to women's health. The BIRCWH Program at Washington University was established to promote the performance of research and transfer of findings that will benefit the health of women. This Program supports the research career development of up to four junior faculty members who will carry the title of Interdisciplinary Women's Health Research (IWHR) Scholars. The Program targets individuals who have recently completed clinical training or postdoctoral fellowships. A major goal of the Program is to promote the career development of scientists interested in addressing research problems relevant to Women's Health. These problems include autoimmune disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, complications of pregnancy, depression, diabetes/obesity/metabolism, epidemiology/health services research, genetics/pharmacogenomics, infectious diseases, and osteoporosis.

Knight Alzheimer's Disease Reserach Center (ADRC) Call for Pilot Reserach Grant Applications
The ADRC at Washington University supports clinical, biomedical, and behavioral research on aging and dementia. Applications proposing patient-oriented research (e.g., risk factors, diagnosis, disease course, and treatment and management) and basic studies (including topics such as neuronal degeneration, genetic factors, and cellular and molecular mechanisms) both are welcomed. The goal of the pilot research grants is to encourage investigators new to Alzheimer's disease, both those who are early in their career development and those who are more senior but not currently working in this area, to initiate research in dementia and aging. The principal investigator must be a full-time Washington University faculty member. All pilots are funded for one year at an anticipated maximum of $30,000 direct costs.
Letter of Intent with Abstract Deadline: November 3, 2014
Application Deadline: November 11, 2014
