The EPSCoR Committee met yesterday and here's a few items of interest: the Acting Director of NSF EPSCoR is Denise Barnes (who happens to be from New Orleans), regarding the NASA EPSCoR program even though the proposals were due yesterday the RFP from NASA is not out yet, the second round of the SURE program has a due date of April 17th and the second round of the OPT-IN program will be due May 15. Finally, faculty are encouraged to participate in the Third Industry/Academia Workshop (on Biosciences) here in New Orleans at the end of April. A campus email blast will go out next week.

If you submitted a letter of intent for the GoMRI RFP II and plan to submit a full proposal, but have not contacted ORSP please do so before Wednesday, February 29. A Letter of Intent must have been submitted by January 17, 2012 in order to apply for funding. A final grant application will not be accepted by GoMRI if you did not submit a Letter of Intent. If you did not submit a letter of intent you will need to wait until the next round of proposals to apply. The following items have been prepared to assist with your application: 1. Boilerplate language is available for a description of departments, infrastructure and experience available for procuring and administering government and non-government contracts and grants. 2. A template for the commitment letter is available. 3. UNO has an example data management plan on the proposal development site: http://www.uno.edu/orsp/ORSPHome/ProposalDevelopment If you have questions or need assistance with your application please contact Ana Barrera: ambarrer@uno.edu extension 6835.

The Office of Research and Economic Development will be showing a 7-part live webinar lecture series on Research Commercialization offered by the Research Commercialization and SBIR Center. As defined on the lecture announcement, “research commercialization involves taking articles, documentation, know-how, patents, and copyrights, which are created during research activities and getting them to users and patients for real societal impacts”. Link to the program: http://center.ncet2.org/index.php?option=com_joomla_lms&Itemid=53&task=course_guest&id=49. Lecture 1: The Importance of Commercializing Research, Monday, February 27, 2012, noon to 1:30 pm. More information is available here: http://www.uno.edu/orsp/ORSPHome/ProfessionalDevelopment

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is pleased to announce the opening competition for the 2012 Summer Research Programs. Eligible UNO faculty members are encouraged to apply for one of these awards as a means of honing their grant-making skills, and for the purpose of developing new areas of research or scholarly endeavors. Deadline for submission of applications: February 29, 2012

The BoR has issued the Request for Applications (RFA) for the EPSCoR Supervised Undergraduate Research Experiences (SURE) program for 2012. This program provides opportunities for female and underrepresented minority undergraduate students to participate in research with faculty mentors. Students accepted into the program will receive a stipend of $4,000, while the faculty mentor will receive $500 per student for costs associated with the research experience. Applications are due April 17, 2012. Please note that minor changes have been made to this RFA; the application submission process is somewhat different from that used for the last competition, so the application form that accompanied the previous SURE RFA cannot be used. The RFA is also available on the Board's Sponsored Programs website at http://laregents.org.

The research of some University of New Orleans scientists is published in and highlighted on the cover of this week’s Journal of the American Chemical Society—the nation’s most prestigious chemistry journal. The researchers reported making very small materials with unique structures that could lead to technological advances in areas including computers, medicine and energy. The UNO researchers developed methods for the fabrication of nanoscale peapod structures—peapods with diameters about 5,000 times smaller than a human hair. By combining chains of small round magnetic crystals and very thin metal oxide sheets only a few atoms thick, the chemists were able to get the sheets to curl around and encase the magnetic chains to form peapod-like structures. Such materials are significant because they demonstrate not only the ability to make such small structures but they could lead to technological advances in various areas such as computer memory, medical imaging and energy production. The work was done by Yuan Yao, Girija Chaubey and John Wiley. Wiley is a university research professor of chemistry and the associate director of UNO’s Advanced Materials Research Institute.

The California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2012-2013 California Science and Technology Policy Fellowships based in Sacramento. The S&T Policy Fellowship, a unique one-year professional development opportunity, provides the selected fellows with hands-on experience working with the California Legislature to incorporate science and technology into public policy. Eligible applicants will be Ph.D.-level (or equivalent) scientists and engineers who have a sincere interest in California current events, the state legislative process, and a strong desire to learn how policy decisions are made.

This was important enough, I thought it was worth posting. I comes from the Report on Research Compliance which is cosponsored by NCURA and AIS. Former Penn State Prof Faces Indictment for $3 Million Grant Fraud Craig Grimes, formerly a professor of material science and engineering at Penn State University, was charged Jan. 31 with "wire fraud, [making] false statements, and money laundering," according to the U.S. attorney for the Department of Justice's Middle District of Pennsylvania. Grimes is alleged to have accepted a $1.196 million NIH grant and failing to "direct" some $509,000 of the total to Hershey Medical Center as intended. Instead, he kept the money "for his own use." Grimes is also accused of receiving a $1.2 million Department of Energy grant meant for organizations without other resources, without revealing in his application that he had already received funding from the National Science Foundation. Grimes faces a maximum of 35 years in prison and a fine of $750,000. Link: http://www.justice.gov/usao/pam/news/2012/Grimes_01_31_2012.htm

The second biennial National Evacuation Conference will be held February 7-9, 2012 in New Orleans, La. at the Hilton Riverside hotel. Stephen Flynn, professor of political science and the founding co-director of the George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security at Northeastern University, will headline an impressive lineup of keynote speakers and panelists set to appear. The conference is organized by the Stephenson Disaster Management Institute and the Gulf Coast Research Center for Evacuation and Transportation Resiliency (CETR), which is housed at both LSU and the University of New Orleans within the UNO Transportation Institute (UNOTI).
