National Academy of Medicine and Johnson & Johnson Innovation—Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards

March 08, 2021

As part of the Healthy Longevity Global Competition, the U.S. National Academy of Medicine (“NAM”), with support from Johnson & Johnson Innovation, will issue up to 24 Catalyst Awards per year, in three annual rounds (i.e., in 2020, 2021, and 2022). Each Catalyst Award includes a $50,000 cash prize as well as travel costs to attend an annual Innovator Summit. 

Cigna Foundation—Health and Well-Being Grants: Health Disparities

March 19, 2021

Health disparities refer to differences in care and outcomes between groups of people–and are closely linked with social, economic, and environmental factors. Within these broad areas, disparities happen across many dimensions, including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, location, gender, disability status, and sexual orientation. 

Bristol-Myers Squibb—Areas of Interest & Competitive Research Grants

April 23, 2021

Bristol Myers Squibb seeks Independent Research applications across all therapeutic areas.

Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation and National Medical Fellowships—Diversity in Clinical Trials Career Development Program (DCTCDP)

July 02, 2021

In partnership, the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation and National Medical Fellowships have created the Diversity in Clinical Trials Career Development Program (DCTCDP) aimed at increasing diversity in clinical trials.

CISCO Research Center - Software Defined Networks/ P4

Cisco is seeking research proposals in the area of Software Defined Networking (SDN) that will allow complex networking functionality to be specified using target independent domain specific programming languages. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable advances in data-plane programming, network-wide policy specification, and compiler technology.

CISCO Research Center - Security Assurance for Agile, Continuous Deployment, and DevOps

Even as Agile evolves to accommodate classical organization requirements and even security verification (e.g., Forrester’s “Agile-scrum-fall”), the need for advanced automated security assurance tools remains.

CISCO Research Center - Robust and Transparent Cryptography

Cryptography is essential for information security, but existing cryptosystems do not always provide us with the protections that we need, and those cryptosystems will need to be adapted to meet emerging challenges. Research is need to drive improvements in several areas: robustness, postquantum security, suitability for the Internet of Things, and transparency to the user regarding the correctness and faithfulness of those systems.

CISCO Research Center—Economic Impact of Cyber-risk

Cisco anticipates that over the next decade, privacy concerns and cyber-risks to data will continue to rise and will drive our industry to take steps to significantly improve the ways we manage confidential, proprietary information (i.e. customer or financial data), intellectual property and PII (Personally Identifiable Information).

CISCO Research Center -Threat Mitigation

This call for research seeks to fund revolutionary approaches to detecting vulnerable devices, remediating identified vulnerabilities, and/or mitigating threats associated with vulnerable components by:

  • Designing intelligent network defenses which dynamically detect and defendor quarantine vulnerable components using technologies such as software defined networking or virtualization
  • Proactively securing vulnerable components with virtual patching or binary rewriting
  • Increasing the complexity and cost of an attacker exploiting a vulnerable component with advancements in Moving Target Defenses (MTD)
  • Devising novel design, development, and deployment methodologies for compartmentalizing vulnerability impact through application sandboxing, containerization, or virtualization

CISCO Research Center —Distributed Storage Systems: Coding, Caching, Data Management, and Hyperscale Data Centers

In this research, we are soliciting proposals to investigate the use of erasure and network coding techniques to make efficient use of data center resources in large scale distributed storage systems. The proposals should look into exploiting resources available in all tiers of the data center hierarchy, namely compute, memory, network and storage to maximize access to storage resources both under normal operation and during data recovery following failures.
