FUNDING OPPORTUNITIESLimited Submission: NSF Major Research Instrumentation Program
The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) serves to increase access to shared scientific and engineering instruments for research and research training in our nation's institutions of higher education, museums, science centers, and not-for-profit organizations. This program especially seeks to improve the quality and expand the scope of research and research training in science and engineering, by providing shared instrumentation that fosters the integration of research and education in research-intensive learning environments. Development and acquisition of research instrumentation for shared inter- and/or intra-organizational use are encouraged, as are development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at academic institutions. Each institution may submit a total of THREE proposals, and at least one of the proposals must be for instrument development. Please note that if you plan to apply, it is important to notify your Associate Dean for Research or other appropriate contact within your school or college. A description of your management center approved cost share plan must be included in the internal LOI.
Internal LOI Deadline: October 15
The Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) of CWRU and the Case Coulter Translational Research Partnership (CCTRP) is accepting letters of intent for the 2013 CTSC Annual Pilot Grant Funding. The grant will fund up to $50,000 to support innovative translational research projects focused upon the invention, preclinical development and/or first in man studies of novel therapeutic agents, biomedical devices and diagnostics designed to address unmet clinical needs.
The CTSC and CCTRP will provide seed money to faculty in multidisciplinary programs for Pilot Projects that will lead to efficient use of resources and support of inter-institutional, Clinical and Translational research in the City of Cleveland. Investigators in the basic science and clinical departments at CWRU, Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth Medical Center, UH and The Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center are eligible. The PI is required to be a faculty member from one of the 5 CTSC partner institutions and eligible to be a PI for an NIH grant.
LOI Deadline: January 15, 2013
MARK YOUR CALENDARSNCI Office of Cancer Centers Learning Series Webinar: An Overview of the NCI's Community Oncology Research Program
Join the Office of Cancer Centers Learning Series for a free webinar on the Overview of the NC's Community Oncology Research Program on Thursday, October 18 from 3-4:30 pm. The NCI is aligning the two existing community oncology programs, the Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOPs), Minority-Based CCOPs and their Research Bases and the NCI Community Cancer Centers Program. The NCI Community Oncology Research Program will expand the research scope in the community setting to include clinical trials, cancer disparities research, and cancer care delivery research. The goal of the webinar is to share these plans with the Cancer Centers as stakeholders and to obtain their input as we develop the concept for this program.
ANNOUNCEMENTSDr. Lazarus Recognized with Endowed Chair Appointment Congratulations to Dr. Hillard Lazarus, who was recently appointed as the George and Edith Richman Chair and Distinguished Scientist in Cancer Research. Dr. Lazarus is Director of Novel Cell Therapy and Professor in the Division of Hematology/Oncology. CTSC Core Utilization Awards
Congratulations to the recipients of the August 2012 CTSC Core Utilization Awards:
The CTSC Core Utilization Pilot Program supports investigator use of and familiarity with CTSC Core operations and personnel, in anticipation of applications for external funding using CTSC resources. Ideal uses may be to run tests on samples already collected; build cross-disciplinary collaborative programs; or develop enabling technologies, new therapeutic, diagnostic or outcomes and more. The CTSC Core Utilization Pilot Grant has a rolling submission format. Applications are accepted year-round and submissions are reviewed monthly.
