Mini Grant Proposal Season

Well, with the new year come new grant proposals, and things are going to be crazy for a few days. (i.e., very little sleep). Vittorio (my "mentor" at UTHSC-H) is co-PI on a joint NSF proposal with John (my former Ph.D. advisor) doing multiscale cancer modeling. This will be due in several days, and so we're in the thick of finishing up the budgeting details and cleaning up the proposal itself.
We're also preparing letters of intent (LOI's) for a few "Concept" awards through the Department of Defense. This type of award is interesting: it's a short-term, relatively low-budget award designed to help kick off innovative approaches. We may end up submitting two of these, so we have our work cut out for us.
So, little sleep, lots of work for a few days. I guess I can view it as a preview of early fatherhood. :-)
