  USDA: Biotechnology Risk Assessment Research Grants Program USDA-NIFA-BRAP-004069

The purpose of the BRAG program is to support the generation of new information that will assist Federal regulatory agencies in making science-based decisions about the effects of introducing into the environment genetically engineered organisms (GE), including plants, microorganisms (including fungi, bacteria, and viruses), arthropods, fish, birds, mammals and other animals excluding humans. Investigations of effects on both managed and natural environments are relevant. The BRAG program accomplishes its purpose by providing Federal regulatory agencies with scientific information relevant to regulatory issues.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (whitejrw@mailbox.sc.edu) by January 14, 2013. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

USDA indicates that a letter of intent is due on January 22, 2013 and a full proposal is due by March 21, 2013. For more information: http://nifa.usda.gov/fo/biotechnologyriskassessment.cfm
