Joel Swanson – Distinguished Faculty Lectureship Award Ceremony and Lecture

“The Coordination of Actin-based Motility”
Thursday, August 5, 2010
4:00 - 5:00 PM
Biomedical Science Research Building (BSRB) Auditorium
A reception will follow the lecture (BSRB Seminar Rooms).


Joel Swanson

The Biomedical Research Council (BMRC) has the honor of selecting a faculty member for the Distinguished Faculty Lectureship Award in Biomedical Research each year. This award, which was initiated in 1979, continues to be the highest research honor bestowed by the Medical School upon a faculty member in the biomedical sciences. Each recipient has made outstanding contributions in the areas of research, teaching and institutional service.

The 2010 Distinguished Faculty Lectureship in Biomedical Research has been awarded to Joel Swanson, Ph.D., Professor of Microbiology and Immunology. Dr. Swanson joined the faculty at the University of Michigan Medical School in 1996. His recent research focuses on the changes in the physiology of specific immune cells called macrophages following infection by bacterial cells or phagocytosis of foreign particles. His work is of critical importance because the physiological and chemical changes in macrophages are crucial in determining the outcome of an infection. He and his colleagues have developed a number of tools and methods to analyze physiological changes within single infected macrophages and in real time, allowing an understanding of the host response at an extraordinary fine level of detail. The work in Dr. Swanson’s lab has resulted in over 100 articles. Related to his research, Dr. Swanson has created and now directs the Center for Living-Cell Imaging. He is the director of the Biotechnology Intradepartmental Training Grant, has mentored numerous graduate students, and has taught both undergraduate and graduate level courses that require a thorough understanding of both biology and technology.

Report of Your Outside Interests, Activities, or Relationships – Due July 31, 2010

UMHS Policy 01-04-003 on Conflicts of Interest requires faculty members (instructional, clinical and research tracks),  house officers/fellows, executives, and management staff  to annually disclose outside interests, activities, or relationships related to their work or position at UMHS that have the real or perceived potential to result in benefit to them or their spouses, domestic partners, or dependents. UMHS Policy also requires that all faculty and staff, regardless of their title, inform their supervisors of any existing or potential conflicts of interest as they arise. You can access M-Inform at (http://www.umms.med.umich.edu/minform/).

Points to consider when assessing whether or not you should report an interest, activity, or relationship include:

The definition of “related.” In this context, “related” means either or both of the following:

  • An interest, activity, or relationship that relies upon your clinical, research, teaching, or other expertise that the University considers part of your work at UMHS. Examples include:
    • Paid or unpaid consulting with a drug company.
    • Service as an expert witness.
    • Lecturer for a device company.
  • An interest, activity, or relationship that has the potential to influence your professional, clinical, research, teaching, or other UMHS duties. Examples include:
    • Owning  a company that does business with UM.
    • Equity interest or owning stock in a company.
    • Serving on a Board or Advisory Committee of company that does business with UMHS.
    • Intellectual property for which one could receive royalties.

The following things should not be reported:

  • Salary and/or other support that are administered by DRDA such as a grant from NIH or a research contract from Pfizer.
  • Service as an NIH reviewer.

For more examples see the COI Guidance Page.

The requirement to disclose your outside interests assists UMHS in managing real or perceived conflicts of interest or commitment.

New Videos Reveal How NIH Identifies Promising Grant Applications

A new video released by the NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR) shows grant applicants and others how NIH assesses the over 80,000 grant applications it receives each year to help find those with the most merit.  CSR has also released a companion video entitled "NIH Tips for Applicants," where reviewers and NIH staff members provide tips to new grant applicants.  Both videos incorporate many of the recent enhancements to the NIH peer review and grants systems.  They replace a similar CSR video that has been viewed by thousands online and used by hundreds of research institutions across the country and abroad to train and educate new and established researchers.  The videos can be viewed at (http://www.csr.nih.gov/video/video.asp).

New Law Regarding Protection of Individually Identifiable Information on Portable Electronic Devices

You could go to jail if you misuse patient data, clinical trial participant data or other individually identifiable data (e.g., credit card numbers) on portable electronic devices. This applies not only to flash drives, but to CDs, DVDs, smart phones, cameras, laptops and more that aren’t protected by encryption.

A new law contained in the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009, also called “ARRA” and the Economic Stimulus Package, makes this clear. It’s the Health Information Technology Economic & Clinical Health Act or “HITECH,” and it deals with several important issues, including enforcement regulations.

HITECH’s penalties are harsh, but if you follow UM Health System guidelines, you’ll be protected. If you are in doubt about your device, you should speak with your IT provider directly. For more information about UMHS Policy, visit (http://www.med.umich.edu/i/policies/umh/01-04-502.htm).

What electronic devices are we talking about?

  • As defined by UM policies, portable electronic devices include laptops or other portable computers, smart phones, PDAs, mobile phones, media players and similar electronic devices that you use to store individually identifiable or sensitive information.
  • Removable media include USB flash drives, external disk drives, memory cards, CDs, DVDs, cameras and other electronic, magnetic or optical storage media that can be readily transferred from one electronic device to another.

Basic device and media protections must be in place:

  • Encryption of sensitive data on all portable devices
  • Electronic access controls: password or other protection which limits access based on identification of the user
  • Strong passwords: eight characters or more, mixed characters, not in any dictionary
  • Anti-virus software
  • Automatic log-off
  • Local firewall software
  • Regular software updates and security patches
  • Server and desktop management/support
  • Security of network file space

If you have questions, please contact the UMHS Compliance Office at (hipaa-questions@med.umich.edu). Over the next several months, the Compliance Office will provide more information about the importance of protecting sensitive and individually identifiable information.

Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program Seeks Faculty Research Partners in the Biomedical and Life Sciences for 2010-2011
Deadline: August 1, 2010 – However, we will accept research sponsor applications until September 15, 2010.

The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is currently recruiting faculty researchers for the coming academic year. UROP students can provide you with invaluable assistance in your research and the opportunity to work with bright and enthusiastic students. Many medical school faculty, research scientists, and postdoctoral fellows have worked with students in their first and second years and formed productive research partnerships. In many cases, students have worked in the same laboratory until they graduate, going on to pursue careers in biomedical and life sciences research.

The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program targets first and second year students, engaging them as research assistants on ongoing research projects and also has a small junior/senior program. Last year, approximately 55% of our research partnerships took place on the Medical School campus. Since its inception in 1988, UROP has been committed to engaging a diverse group of students in research. While UROP is open to all first and second year students on campus, we maintain a strong interest in engaging women and historically underrepresented minority students in research. UROP students participate in the program for either academic credit or work-study funds. All work-study costs are covered by UROP. Limited supplementary research funds are also available from UROP to the sponsoring laboratory.

If you are interested in involving a student in your research project, we encourage you to read more about the program and complete our online one page application at:
http://www.lsa.umich.edu/urop/sponsors/newsponsor

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Sandra Gregerman at (sgreger@umich.edu) or 734-615-9000.

FDA Released New Frequently Asked Questions on the Statement of Investigator Form (FDA Form 1572)

The Statement of Investigator Form (FDA Form 1572) has two purposes: (1) to provide information and documentation about the investigator’s qualifications and that the clinical site is an appropriate location to conduct the clinical investigation, and (2) to inform the investigator of his/her obligations and obtain the investigator’s commitment to follow pertinent FDA regulations.

Who should be listed:
Investigators and key members of an investigative team who will assist the investigator and make a significant contribution to the study data.

Who may be listed:
An individual who is directly involved in the collection of data, such as a research coordinator, or – if the protocol notes each subject needs to visit a specified internist who will perform a full physical to qualify subjects – those individuals should be listed on the 1572.

Who doesn’t need to be listed:
Hospital staff, including nurses, residents, or fellows who provide ancillary or intermittent care but who do not make a direct and significant contribution to the clinical data, do not need to be listed.  For example, an on-call physician who temporarily dealt with a possible adverse effect or a temporary substitute for a research staff.

The complete FAQs can be found online.

Disclosure of Financial Interests:
Under 21 CFR Part 54 (Disclosure of Financial Interests by Clinical Investigators), a person listed or identified as an investigator or sub-investigator who is directly involved in the treatment or evaluation of research subjects must submit financial disclosure information to the sponsor. For purposes of this financial disclosure regulation, this includes the spouse and each dependent child of the investigator and sub-investigator. (21 CFR 54.2(d) and 54.4).

Animal Research

UCUCA and OSEH Animal Handlers’ Medical Surveillance Questionnaire Compliance

It is the University Committee on Use and Care of Animals’ mission to assure humane use of all animals at the university.  It is Occupational Safety and Environmental Health’s responsibility to assure safety of all personnel working with animals.  Together these departments have created the OSEH Animal Handler Program that includes the OSEH Medical Surveillance Questionnaire.  This is a form that evaluates an animal user’s safety regarding exposure to animals and is required annually of every person listed on a protocol.

Recently, the UCUCA Office assisted OSEH in the tracking of the animal users who had not completed their annual questionnaire.   Currently 99% of users are now up to date with their questionnaire.  The UCUCA Office wants to thank all who helped us reach this high level of compliance with the OSEH Animal Handlers’ Medical Surveillance Program.

The UCUCA Office will continue to assist OSEH in the tracking personnel as their annual forms come due.  If you have questions regarding your annual questionnaire, please contact the UCUCA Office at 763-8028 or OSEH at (oseh_contact@umich.edu).

Martin Myers Honored with ADA Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award
Martin Myers

Martin G. Myers, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., received the prestigious Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award from the American Diabetes Association (ADA) during its 70th Scientific Sessions held June 25 29, 2010 in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Myers is the Marilyn H. Vincent Professor of Diabetes Research and Associate Professor in the Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes and the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology. This award recognizes research in diabetes that demonstrates “independence of thought and originality.” As the recipient of this award, Dr. Myers gave the lecture “Deconstructing Leptin—From Signals to Circuits” at the conference in Orlando.

In 2004, Dr. Myers came to the University of Michigan from the Joslin Diabetes Center at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Myers’s research began with building a molecular framework for understanding the mechanisms of leptin signaling, including how individual phosphorylation sites on the leptin receptor recruit distinct signaling molecules. The Myers laboratory has revealed the specificity of leptin signals in metabolic control, including the role for leptin-STAT3 signaling in the regulation of energy balance and glucose homeostasis. His group also has defined roles for leptin receptor feedback inhibition and hypothalamic mTor signaling in metabolism. Myers’s current support includes a NIDDK MERIT Award.

Ernesto Bernal-Mizrachi Inducted into ASCI, Installed as Soderquist Professor
Ernesto Bernal-Mizrachi

Congratulations on two big honors for Ernesto Bernal-Mizrachi, M.D., Associate Professor of Internal Medicine in the Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes Division. First, Dr. Bernal-Mizrachi has been installed as the Larry D. Soderquist Professor. The named professorship was made possible by the generosity of longtime UMHS supporters Dolores (“Dee”) and Bill Brehm in memory of Dee's brother, Larry D. Soderquist.

Larry Soderquist was one of the nation's most respected securities law scholars and director of the Corporate and Securities Law Institute at Vanderbilt University Law School before his death in 2005 from injuries he sustained in an auto accident. A native of Ypsilanti, Michigan, Mr. Soderquist received a bachelor's degree from Eastern Michigan University in 1966, and went on to earn a law degree from Harvard University.

Secondly, Dr. Bernal-Mizrachi was inducted into the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI), one of the oldest and most esteemed organizations of physician-scientists.

Dr. Bernal-Mizrachi received his M.D. degree from Universidad del Valle in Cali, Colombia, with additional training in internal medicine at the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital. He held an endocrinology fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis, MO and joined their faculty in 2000, before coming to Michigan in 2009.

The long-term goal of Dr. Bernal-Mizrachi’s lab research is to understand the molecular mechanisms governing the regulation of beta-cell mass as a platform to develop novel strategies for the treatment of type 1 and 2 diabetes. For more information on his research, visit his website.
