Biomedical Engineering (BME)

Deadline: October 20, 2015

The goal of the Biomedical Engineering (BME) program is to provide opportunities to develop novel ideas into discovery-level and transformative projects that integrate engineering and life sciences in solving biomedical problems that serve humanity in the long-term. BME projects must be at the interface of engineering and life sciences, and advance both engineering and life sciences. The projects should focus on high impact transformative methods and technologies. Projects should include methods, models and enabling tools of understanding and controlling living systems; fundamental improvements in deriving information from cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems; new approaches to the design of structures and materials for eventual medical use in the long-term; and novel methods for reducing health care costs through new technologies.

Fluid Dynamics

Deadline: October 20, 2015

The Fluid Dynamics program supports fundamental engineering research on mechanisms and phenomena governing fluid flow from the molecular to the macroscopic scale. Proposed research should contribute to basic understanding of fluid flow phenomena, thus enabling the better design, predictability, efficiency, and control of systems that involve fluids. Areas of emphasis are proposals that address the behavior of new fluid materials and innovative uses of fluids in manufacturing, energy and the environment, materials development, biotechnology, nanotechnology, sensor development, clinical diagnostics and drug delivery. While the research should focus on fundamentals, a clear connection to potential applications with significant societal/technological impact should be outlined.
