Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is
effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent
with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit
Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR § 200). NSF anticipates release of
the PAPPG in the Fall of 2014. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date,
the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this
The Functional & Regulatory Systems thematic area focuses on fundamental physiological mechanisms in plants and animals and how they have evolved, with emphasis on organisms as integrated systems. This area includes comparative physiology, neurophysiology, mechanisms of solute transport, and comparative or evolutionary immunology. It includes research at the genetic, genomic, cellular, tissue, organ, system, and organismal levels of organization. Also supported in this area are studies of neuronal and glial cell function and synaptic mechanisms as they relate to integrated organismal systems. Proposals for computational modeling to further understanding of physiological processes in organisms are encouraged.
