Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program Funding Opportunity for Fiscal Year 2011 The Department of Defense (DOD) Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program's (PRCRP) vision is to improve quality of life by decreasing the impact of cancer on service members, their families, and the American public. This program is administered by the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) through the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP). Fiscal Year 2011 (FY11) Defense Appropriation Act provides for $16 million to the DOD PRCRP to research cancers not addressed in breast, prostate, lung (excluding mesothelioma), and ovarian cancer research programs currently executed and managed by the Office of the CDMRP. The funds provided are directed to be used to conduct research for the following topic areas: Blood Cancers, Colorectal Cancer, Genetic Cancer Research, Kidney Cancer, Listeria Vaccine for Cancer, Melanoma and Other Skin Cancers, Mesothelioma, Pancreatic Cancer, Pediatric Cancers, Radiation Protection Utilizing Nanotechnology Visionary Postdoctoral fellowship Awards of $240,000 for direct costs *Research must be in one or more of the FY11 PRCRP Topic Areas *Supports postdoctoral fellows training in the laboratory of early career investigators (mentor) with expertise in one or more of the FY11 PRCRP Topic Areas *Supports postdoctoral training to include a budget option for research supplies *Applications must not address breast, prostate, lung (excluding Mesothelioma), and ovarian cancer research *Preliminary data not required *Clinical trials will not be supported All applications must conform to the program announcement and general application instructions that are available for electronic downloading from the Grants.gov website. The application package containing the required forms for this award mechanism will also be found on Grants.gov. A pre-application is required and must be submitted through the CDMRP eReceipt website (https://cdmrp.org) prior to August 10, 2011.

NSF now requires all proposals to have a data management plan. ORSP has been working with the Library to implement scholarWorks@UNO as part of that plan. To understand data management and for an example plan for your proposal, please check out the new web page at: http://w2.uno.edu/orsp/ORSPHome/DataManagement.aspx

The Lake Pontchartrain Area is one of seven locations selected for help from the nation’s new Urban Waters Federal Partnership. This partnership will reconnect urban communities, particularly those that are overburdened or economically distressed, with their waterways by improving coordination among federal agencies and collaborating with community-led revitalization efforts to improve our Nation’s water systems and promote their economic, environmental and social benefits. To learn more please see: http://www.urbanwaters.gov/pdf/neworleans.pdf

Drs. Germain-McCarthy and Jensen’s grant proposal to the state for the 2011- 2012 LaSIP mathematics professional development for teachers in grades 4 – 8 will be funded! The project includes 12 days of workshop from July 5- 20 and 5 follow-up days during the academic year. The project will use the lesson study process to promote inquiry learning in the numbers and relations strand. Teachers who complete the project will receive a stipend of $180 per-6hr-day, $100 to purchase materials and three UNO graduate credits. For more information and an application, contact Dr. Germain McCarthy at (504) 280-6533 or ygermain@uno.edu.

I recently distributed to those on campus that I feel are eligible to respond to the NIH IDeA Call for Papers and Limited Competition. Below is the eligibility section. Some of our eligible disciplines would be bioengineering, Medicinal Chemistry, Bioinformatics, PSYC and BIOS. If you are interested and did not receive notice, please contact me at vcresearch@uno.edu. The applicant institution for an IDeA-CTR Program will be an Academic Health Center in an IDeA-eligible state (the list of states and other eligibility requirements can be found in Section III. Eligibility Information). For the purposes of this FOA, an Academic Health Center is defined as a post-baccalaureate graduate degree granting institution, or an affiliated organization, with ongoing research and/or academic programs in the biomedical sciences (e.g., medicine and its related basic and clinical specialties, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, public health, biostatistics, epidemiology, and/or bioengineering).

Office of Research Responsible Conduct of Research Training
 
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs has scheduled another session to satisfy the in-person Responsible Conduct of Research training requirement.  The session will be a discussion of ethics cases led by Dr. Edward Johnson; it will be held from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday June 27th in KH 228.  Note:  You only need to attend one session this calendar year to satisfy the requirement; also, only those individuals who receive funding the from the National Science Foundation or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (which includes The National Institutes of Health) must attend. 
 
Space is limited to promote discussion, so please register for this session by following this link:Professional Development Registrations. (Navigation in SharePoint is: Research, Professional Development, Professional Development Registrations; you can also select Register for Training Session under links on the Research page in SharePoint.)  Other sessions will be added as necessary.
 
You will need to add a new item – click New on the menu bar and then New Item. Fill in the requested information and click OK. You will receive an email stating that your registration is in process. Once approved or rejected (if the session is full) you will receive another email.

A recent study by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) reports that the United States is falling behind its peers in the amount of government- and business-funded university research. In 2008, the United States ranked 18th out of 30 in terms of growth in government-funded university research as a percentage of GDP. Sweden was ranked the highest. ITIF suggests that the private sector often under-invests in innovation. As a result, university research plays a key role in filling in the gap. Moreover, in the last three decades, the trend has been for large corporations to heavily downsize or repurpose their central research laboratories. Therefore, university-based research has become increasingly important in low TRL (see earlier post on Technology Readiness Levels), as ITIF notes, to expand “the knowledge pool from which the private sector draws ideas and innovation.” UNO through it's research efforts, the UNO Research and Technology Park and the UNO R&T Foundation are working to help fill the gap.

A reminder about Board of Regents funding for travel grants. The TGEF proposals have a high success rate. During the summer months when faculty teaching and other responsibilities are reduced you should consider applying to obtain a TGEF grant and use the funding to visit a federal funding agency. This will help your chances of obtaining federal funding in the future. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs can help you with the application for the TGEF award and contacting the appropriate federal program officer. If you are interested please contact us at orsp@uno.edu This email has been distributed to all faculty. Travel Grants for Emerging Faculty (TGEF) The TGEF program, which consists of two components (I and II), was established to assist emerging faculty (tenure track but non-tenured) in the science and engineering disciplines by providing travel funds needed to further their research and build strong collaborations. The eligible disciplines include: biological sciences (all); mathematical & computer sciences; earth & environmental sciences (geology, oceanography, environmental); engineering (all); physical sciences (astronomy, chemistry, physics); and the social & behavioral sciences. TGEF I provides up to $1,200 to untenured tenure-track faculty seeking to visit a federal funding agency program officer to discuss their research proposals. The award amount can be increased to $2,400 if the applicant is accompanied by an established tenured professor. TGEF II provides up to $1,200 to untenured tenure-track faculty who have been invited to present plenary or major invited talks at national or international meetings. Open deadline: June 30, 2015 Applicants must submit proposals to LA EPSCoR at the Board of Regents at least 30 days prior to the requested start date of travel. http://web.laregents.org/programs/epscor-programs/travel-grants-for-emerging-faculty-tgef/
