Critical Resilient Interdependent Infrastructure Systems and Processes

Funding Opportunity Number: 15-531 Opportunity Category: DiscretionaryFunding Instrument Type: GrantCategory of Funding Activity: Science and Technology and other Research and DevelopmentCFDA Number: 47.04147.07047.075Eligible Applicants Others (see text field entitled "Additional Information on Eligibility" for clarification)Agency Name: NSFClosing Date: Mar 20, 2015Award Ceiling: Expected Number of Awards: 20Creation Date: Dec 19, 2014Funding Opportunity Description: Critical infrastructures are the mainstay of our nation's economy, security and health. These infrastructures are interdependent. For example, the electrical power system depends on the delivery of fuels to power generating stations through transportation services, the production of those fuels depends in turn on the use of electrical power, and those fuels are needed by the transportation services. The goals of the Critical Resilient Interdependent Infrastructure Processes and Systems (CRISP) solicitation are to: (1) foster an interdisciplinary research community of engineers, computer and computational scientists and social and behavioral scientists, that creates new approaches and engineering solutions for the design and operation of infrastructures as processes and services; (2) enhance the understanding and design of interdependent critical infrastructure systems (ICIs) and processes that provide essential goods and services despite disruptions and failures from any cause, natural...

QuinnAbstractXanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is an uncommon chronic destructive granulomatous inflammation of the kidney that can sometimes mimic other renal pathologies like tumours or infections. For this reason, it is also called “the great imitator”.This is the case of a 7-year old girl that presented to the hospital with right hip pain and a suspicious right sided abdominal lesion, thought initially to be a Wilms’ tumour and then an appe...

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a rare non-Langerhans cell histiocytic proliferation that occurs in nodal and extranodal sites. Rare examples of the disease involving the digestive system have been described. To characterize the digestive tract manifestations of this disease, 12 specimens from 11 patients with extranodal RDD affecting the digestive organs were analyzed. Hematoxylin and eosin sections and available immunohistochemical stains were reviewed, and the clinical information was obtained from patients’ electronic or submitted records. Eight patients were female and 3 male (median age, 65 y; range, 17 t...
