The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering intends to reissue a modified Request for Applications (RFA) soliciting applications for Quantum Projects - Exploratory Phase I. The RFA is expected to be published in November 2006 with applications due in January 2007. The NIBIB Quantum grants will support multi-investigator, interdisciplinary teams to develop innovative biomedical technologies with the potential to make a profound (quantum) advance within 8-10 years of the Phase I award, to overcome a major disease or national public health problem, or change the paradigm of prevention, diagnosis, rehabilitation or practice of medicine for a major disease or national public health problem. Projects may also focus on technologies that broadly impact and improve the practice of medicine, but must clearly define a quantum impact over present-day approaches to the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of a major disease or national public health problem. The programmatic priority for Quantum grants will be the magnitude of the impact of the proposed technology. Quantum projects should build on the scientific advances that have occurred in many fields of medicine, the physical sciences and engineering, and develop appropriate technologies to translate the scientific advances into a practical reality. This program underscores the commitment of NIBIB to integrate the engineering and physical sciences with the life sciences to improve human health.
