All materials should be received in our office by Feb 1, 2014.

Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Molecular Biosciences May 27, 2014 – July 31, 2014

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Colorado State University, with financial support from the National Science Foundation, offers undergraduate students opportunities for independent research projects in molecular biosciences including:

• Gene expression analyses

• Chromatin structure/function

• Protein characterization and manipulation

• Cell molecular architecture

• Tumor virus molecular biology

• Molecular mechanisms of ion channels and neurotransmitter release

• Protein folding, structure and function

• Molecular neurobiology

• Developmental mechanisms

• Proteomics

• Detection of food-borne pathogens

• Plant molecular biology and metabolism

• Cardiovascular physiology and development

• DNA repair and telomeres in cancer and aging

• Prions in neurodegenerative diseases

Program Description

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, with financial support from the National Science Foundation, offers qualified undergraduates from throughout the country the opportunity to conduct research projects in biochemistry and molecular biology for ten weeks each summer.

This program allows students to participate in active research in a wide range of areas, including protein structure and function, transcriptional mechanisms, molecular neurobiology, regulation of gene expression in a chromatin context, cancer biology, plant biology, embryonic development, diabetes, cytoskeleton dynamics, and virology.

Students will be involved in exciting and interesting projects at the very edge of our current knowledge in these areas. They will learn how to formulate and test hypotheses, how to problem-solve and troubleshoot, and how to use state-of-the-art techniques and instrumentation including analytical ultracentrifugation and X-ray crystallography. A significant number of participants in this program have published the results of their projects in scientific journals.

Each student is assigned to a specific faculty member’s research laboratory, where the student works closely with the faculty mentor, post-doctoral associates, and graduate students.

The student participates fully in the life of the mentor’s lab. In addition, there are informal meetings of all program participants to exchange information on the research being done and to discuss areas of biochemistry/molecular biology that are of particular interest and excitement. There are also weekly meetings at which various scientists describe the latest advances in their own research or career opportunities in biomedical or biotechnology fields. Informal evening or weekend social, recreational, and cultural events with program participants and faculty provide for relaxation. The summer experience is capped by a mini-symposium at which program participants present a poster/report on their project and receive certificates of completion for the program.

What Participants Receive

Stipends, Living Allowance, and Travel

Participants in the 10-week program are provided $5,000 stipends, housing in nearby apartments, and $1,700 for food. In addition, they receive up to $600 for documented travel expenses (direct route from either home or school to begin the program, and by direct route to home or school at the end of the program). The costs of some optional planned recreational activities (e.g., whitewater rafting) are borne by the student.

Request for Proposals: Automated Insulin Delivery Initiative

LOI Submission Deadline: January 15, 2014

Over the past decade, advances in medical device technology have had significant impact on monitoring, management and treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, data from the T1D Exchange demonstrates that T1D is still not a safe or well-managed disease, despite using today’s tools.  Thus, the goal of the Automated Insulin Delivery Initiative (AIDI) of The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust (HCT) Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) Program is to accelerate the development and regulatory approval of automated insulin delivery systems to improve the management and care of T1D.

Since 2009, HCT has made major investments in research, technology, systems and outreach, with a goal of improving the lives of people living with T1D. HCT has been actively funding advances in technologies that decrease the burden and improve outcomes for people living with the disease. With the AIDI funding opportunity, HCT seeks projects that advance the automated delivery of insulin to manage glycemic variability of people with T1D.  This includes, but is not limited, to: fully external systems, fully implanted systems, mixed external and implanted systems, and handheld controller, software & connectivity driven system approaches which will contribute to greater efficacy in treatment.

There are four broad areas of interest for this funding opportunity:

Fully External Systems

Fully Implanted Systems

Mixed External and Implanted Systems

Handheld Controller, Software & Connectivity

Upon review of your completed LOI, eligible grantees will be invited to submit a Full Proposal.

Applicant organizations incorporated outside of the United States are required to complete the international LOI application in order for the Trust to determine if the organization is equivalent to a US-based public charity. If an international applicant fails to meet equivalency determination, expenditure responsibility rules governing grants to for-profit organizations will be followed throughout the remainder of the application process.

If you have any questions please refer to the frequently asked questions http://helmsleytrust.org/media/uploads/2__aidi_rfp_faqs_final.pdf prior to emailing the Trust at T1DTechnology@helmsleytrust.org. For technical assistance with the online application, please contact grants@helmsleytrust.org. Telephone calls will not be accepted.
