Biomedical Engineering & Research to Aid
Persons with Disabilities (BME/RAPD)
Leon Esterowitz, and Semahat
Detailed guidelines for proposals to the BME/RAPD program are found
in the Grant
Proposal Guide NSF 04-23 and the Program Announcement entitled
Biomedical Engineering Program and Research to Aid Persons with
Disabilities Program (BME/RAPD) NSF
03-560. Biomedical Engineering (BME) supports research, often
with diagnosis or treatment-related goals, that applies engineering
principles to problems in biology and medicine while advancing the
engineering knowledge base. Integration of engineering expertise
with life science principles is an essential requirement for advances
in this field. The BME program emphasizes basic engineering
research that contributes to better and more efficient health care
delivery. The RAPD program emphasizes basic engineering research
that aids persons with disabilities.
Support is provided for both unsolicited proposals and for special initiatives.
Some new areas of particular interest are: biomedical photonics; novel tissue
characterization schemes; new cellular and tissue engineering concepts; the
innovative integration of multi-disciplinary technologies for new imaging
and biosensing systems, and home care technologies.
