iBIO has partnered with G2G Consulting to identify SBIR/STTR and other Government Non-Dilutive Grant opportunities for iBIO Members. Our goal is to increase funding opportunities in Illinois and the utilization of federal grants to support research and small company creation.

Every month we will provide a Government Bioscience Grants Report. This month’s report is published and available for iBIO members to access through G2G’s website:

Here are some things to take note of in the January GBG Report:

  1. Bioenergy (p4, #9)- The DOE released a pre-announcement soliciting proposals focused on the Genomic Science program.(https://genomicscience.energy.gov). In this FOA, applications are requested for: 1. Systems-level research to improve understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying bioenergy feedstock productivity under changing and at times suboptimal environmental conditions; and 2. Systems biology-enabled investigations into the role(s) of microbes and microbial communities (including rhizosphere consortia, e.g. bacteria, fungi, diazotrophs, endophytes, viruses) in supporting plant productivity and vigor.
  2. Animal and Biological Materials (p24, #60)- This FOA encourages grant applications for national Animal and Biological Material Resource Centers. These Centers provide support for special colonies of laboratory animals, as well as other resources such as informatics tools, reagents, cultures (cells, tissues, and organs) and genetic stocks that serve the biomedical research community in a variety of research areas on a local, regional, and national basis. The important mission of the projects described by this FOA is to provide research resources, which are facilitating the optimization and enhancement of scientific rigor, transparency and experimental reproducibility of biomedical research.
