This is the list of all contributions published in this section, in chronological order.

In accordance with changes to the Public Health Services (PHS)’ Conflict of Interest (COI) Policy, UNO implemented a supplemental COI policy for individuals holding a PHS (which includes the National Institutes of Health) award, either direct or pass-thru award.  The policy was distributed last year and is attached for reference.  All individuals who meet the definition of an investigator must comply with the policy.  An investigator is defined as:  

 “any UNO individual (including faculty, staff, post docs, graduate assistants and students) who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of Sponsored Research or for the proposal of such Sponsored Research. For the purpose of this Policy, the term includes the following members of the Investigator’s immediate family: children, spouses of children, siblings, spouses of siblings, parents, spouse and spouse’s parents” (taken from the main COI policy which can be found on the COI website, link: http://www.uno.edu/compliance/conflictofinterest.aspx)

 

Someone who meets the definition of an investigator does not have to be listed as a Co-PI with the sponsor.

All investigators must complete the PHS Investigator COI Report.  If the individual is listed as a Co-PI on the routing form, the COI report is completed through the form.  All other investigators must complete and sign the paper report and either email, fax or send it to the Office of Research (attention Carol Mitton).  The report is attached and can be found on the COI website, link above.

In addition to the COI report, all investigators must complete the COI training; this training must be done before beginning work on the project and must be done every four years.  The training is done on-line through SharePoint (training link:  https://sharepoint.uno.edu/research/Conflict%20of%20Interest%20Training/Forms/AllItems.aspx). To begin the training, click Add Document on the COI training page.  Questions or problems with the training can be directed to Carol Mitton at 280-5546 or cmitton@uno.edu.  If students must take the training, their names must be sent to Carol Mitton to ensure they have access to the training site.

To enforce the report and training requirement, all payroll paperwork (101, Form 6) for individuals being paid from a PHS (such as NIH) direct or pass-thru award must include a statement in the comments section as to whether or not the individual meets the definition of an investigator. The paperwork will not be approved by Sponsored Programs Accounting without that statement.

At the time of a new PHS award, the Office of Research will send a separate email to the PI summarizing the policy, informing them whether they need to complete the training, and requesting a list of known individuals who meet the definition of an investigator. If necessary, these individuals will be notified of the COI requirements and asked to comply.  This is being done to minimize the potential of delay in processing their paperwork at a later date.  Attached is a procedure document that identifies the responsibilities of our office, Sponsored Programs Accounting and the PI.

Questions can be directed to Carol Mitton.

This email was sent to all employees.

The call for research professor nominations was sent to the colleges.

This honor is valued by the recipients who receive both recognition for their productivity and achievements. There are many faculty members who deserve this award for their contribution to scholarship and to the growing reputation of the University of New Orleans as one of the top 200 research universities in the United States of America.

The title, Early Research Professor, is recognition for persons who hold the rank of Assistant Professor at the time of their appointment, who have passed their third-year review and who have distinguished themselves in their creative and scholarly activities. The title, University Research Professor, is recognition for persons who have achieved the rank of Associate Professor or Professor and who have distinguished themselves in their creative and scholarly activities. The title, Chancellor’s Research Professor, is recognition for persons who have achieved the rank of Professor and who have distinguished themselves in their creative and scholarly work while at the University.

The nomination packet for all three awards should be sent via email to vpresearch@uno.edu. The vita of the nominee should be attached to the email. The list of external reviewers, if required, and any additional materials should be either attached to or included in the body of the email. The email should originate with the Department Chair and be routed through the Dean for their notification and recommendation.

Last year the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs instituted the online Responsible Conduct of Research Training for anyone receiving National Science Foundation (NSF) or Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) including National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding. Both of these agencies recommend that the training not be done strictly online. Therefore, the Office of Research will be conducting discussion sessions of research ethics cases and showing an interactive video to meet this requirement. Individuals who receive some form of compensation from either NSF or DHHS must attend, this includes faculty, staff, graduate assistants and student workers. The first scheduled session will be led by Dr. Johnson from the Philosophy Department on Wednesday April 20th in LA 362 from noon to 1 p.m. Space is limited to promote discussion so please register for this session by following this link: Professional Development Registrations. (Navigation in SharePoint is: Research, Training, Professional Development Registrations.) 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. As other sessions are added, an announcement will be made. If your department or college already conducts an ethics related meeting periodically, please contact Carol Mitton (cmitton@uno.edu or extension 5546) to determine if this will satisfy the requirement of live ethics training. If you have any questions, please contact Carol Mitton.

ORSP Research Administrator, Liz Gordon, passed away last Saturday. For those of you that worked with Liz you know that she was both extremely knowledgeable about NIH funding and incredibly helpful with faculty in the preparation and submission of proposals. She also ran our Summer Research Program. Liz was kind and thoughtful of those around her. She will be missed. A formal announcement to the faculty/staff will be made soon.
