NASA seeks proposals on science instruments that could be carried aboard a future mission to Jupiter's moon Europa that address fundamental questions about the icy moon and the search for life beyond Earth. The agency will first select about 20 proposals in April 2015. It will then provide approximately $25 million for selectees to advance instrument formulation and development as part of a Phase A concept study. After a review, agency officials will select eight instruments or so to be built. Read more  here.

Defense Health Program- Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program - Funding Opportunities for Fiscal Year 2014
The Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14) Defense Appropriations Act provides $200 million to the Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP).  The vision of the PRMRP is to improve the health and well-being of all military service members, veterans, and beneficiaries.  The PRMRP challenges the scientific and clinical communities to address one of the FY14 congressionally directed topic areas with original ideas that foster new directions in basic science and translational research; novel product development leading to improved therapeutic or diagnostic tools; or clinical trials that address an immediate clinical need.  This program is administered by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command through the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).

The PRMRP is providing the information in this pre-announcement to allow investigators time to plan and develop applications.  FY14 PRMRP Program Announcements and General Application Instructions are anticipated to be posted on Grants.gov in April 2014.  Pre-application and application deadlines will be available when the Program Announcements are released.  This pre-announcement should not be construed as an obligation by the government.

A pre-application is required and must be submitted through the CDMRP electronic Biomedical Research Application Portal (eBRAP) (https://eBRAP.org) prior to the pre-application deadline.  Applications must be submitted through the federal government's single-entry portal, Grants.gov.  Submission deadlines are not available until the Program Announcements are released.  Requests for email notification of the Program Announcement release may be sent to help@eBRAP.org.  Email notifications of funding opportunities are sent as a courtesy and should not be used as a sole source of notification; applicants should monitor Grants.gov for official postings of funding opportunities.
