FROM NCI It is my pleasure to notify you about a new trans-NIH Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): “Bioengineering Approaches to Energy Balance and Obesity” (R21) (RFA-HL-07-007). The purpose of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to solicit R21 applications to develop and validate new and innovative engineering approaches to address clinical problems related to energy balance, intake, and expenditure. Novel sensors, devices, imaging, and other technologies, including technologies to detect biochemical markers of energy balance, are expected to be developed and evaluated by collaborating engineers, physical scientists, mathematicians, and scientists from other relevant disciplines with expertise in obesity and nutrition. The goal is to increase the number of useful technologies and tools available to scientists to facilitate their research in energy balance and health. For more information about this FOA go to Letters of intent are encouraged by November 24, 2006 with applications due by December 22, 2006. For information about the diet and cancer prevention related issues please feel free to contact Dr. Sharon Ross at 301-594-7547 or Have a happy. John John A.
