Thomas Shanley, M.D., Appointed Associate Dean for Clinical and Translational Research and Director of MICHR
Thomas ShanleyThomas Shanley, M.D.

I am pleased to share with you the news that the Regents have approved the appointment of Thomas P. Shanley, M.D., as Associate Dean for Clinical and Translational Research at the Medical School, and Director of the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR). The National Institutes of Health also approved Dr. Shanley as Principal Investigator for U-M’s Clinical & Translational Science Award.

Last month, Drs. Pescovitz and Woolliscroft announced that Ken Pienta, M.D., was stepping down from these positions. I would also like to convey my appreciation for all that Ken has done, and wish him well.

Dr. Shanley is an ideal choice to lead MICHR and continue to pursue our vision for enabling and enhancing clinical and translational research at UMHS. He is the Janette Ferrantino Professor of Pediatrics and Professor of Pediatrics and Communicable Diseases, and has been conducting research across the translational spectrum – from basic science to translational research to network-based clinical studies – since obtaining his scientific training at U-M in the mid-1990s. He is currently Principal Investigator for two federally funded clinical trials and two basic science RO1s. Further details are available on the MICHR website.

The Office of Research is looking forward to working with Dr. Shanley to enhance our clinical research infrastructure and support our investigators’ efforts to translate their findings to improve the health of our patients and our community. We warmly welcome Tom to his new role.

Animal Research

Inspections of Animal Facilities

Both the Public Health Service Policy (PHS Policy) and the Animal Welfare Regulations require semi-annual inspections of animal facilities. Throughout the year, the University Committee on Use and Care of Animals (UCUCA) inspects animal housing and use rooms, facilities, and laboratories using the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals as a basis for evaluation. In addition, the UCUCA compliance staff inspects laboratory spaces that conduct rodent survival surgeries semi-annually on behalf of the UCUCA. The goal of the UCUCA inspections is to confirm that the expected standards of animal care and use are being maintained.  A sound and compliant laboratory benefits the entire university community, and supports successful research outcomes.

So, what does the UCUCA expect when they conduct these inspections?  The UCUCA does not require that everything be shiny and new.  However, the UCUCA does expect that animal housing and use spaces are clean, organized, and safe for both personnel and animals.  Caging should be in good repair, contain only the appropriate number of animals allowed per cage, and be appropriately labeled with the PI, species/stock/strain, current UCUCA protocol number, and other pertinent information.  All supplies (e.g., food, drugs, enrichment) should be properly stored and any expired materials should be disposed of appropriately.  All appropriate records (e.g., daily husbandry records, tumor monitoring sheets, post-operative monitoring records) should be complete and easy to locate.  Finally, all animals should be in reasonably good health.

The results of these inspections are reviewed by the UCUCA at a monthly meeting and sent in a report to the Vice President for Research twice each year.  Our basic philosophy is that every effort should be made to have the UCUCA, research staff, and husbandry personnel work together to develop and maintain a high quality animal care and use program.  Remember, good research starts with good animal care!

If you ever have questions regarding anything related to your animal work or compliance, please do not hesitate to contact the UCUCA Office (ucuca.office@umich.edu or 734-763-8028).

Jody C. Ungerleider Memorial Award for Outstanding Contributions to Laboratory Animal Welfare
Deadline: June 17, 2011

The University of Michigan Committee on the Use and Care of Animals (UCUCA) and the Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM) are soliciting nominations for the Jody C. Ungerleider Memorial Award.  This award is given for outstanding contributions toward the humane use and welfare of laboratory animals.

Jody Ungerleider was a Research Assistant at the University of Michigan for many years.  In that capacity she carried a significant share of the responsibility for the care and treatment of animals used in the laboratory in which she worked.  She believed profoundly that the humane care and welfare of all animals used in research should be one of the highest priorities involved in biological experimentation.  The purpose of the Ungerleider Award is to recognize individuals within the University of Michigan whose activities and attitudes toward the use of laboratory animals in research are consistent with those high standards.  University staff and students who participate in any aspect of animal research or use of animals for education and training are eligible.  The award consists of a plaque appropriately inscribed and a cash award.

Nominees for the award should meet at least one of the following criteria:

  1. Demonstration, through their actions, of concern and compassion for laboratory animals and advocacy for the humane treatment of animals as an essential component of laboratory research.
  2. Specific research or technological contributions to the advancement of the human use or treatment of laboratory animals.
  3. Specific contributions to the education of researchers, animal handlers, and/or the general public regarding the use of laboratory animals in biological research with special emphasis on their humane treatment.


A letter of nomination should be sent to:

Committee for the Jody C. Ungerleider Memorial Award
In care of Anne Sodemann
Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine
1301 Catherine Street
018 Animal Research Facility, Box 0614

Electronic submissions are highly encouraged and can be emailed to (sodemann@umich.edu). The nomination letter should document the nominee’s specific contribution(s) in reasonable detail.  Additional material that supports or more fully details an individual’s qualifications may be included although a maximum of four letters of support will be considered.


External Limited Submissions


These are opportunities in which the sponsor has limited the number of proposals allowed from an institution. These competitions require an internal review to select the proposals to submit to the sponsor from the University of Michigan.

Edward Mallinckrodt, Jr. Foundation Grant Progra
Internal Deadline: June 6, 2011

The basic aim of the Edward Mallinckrodt, Jr. Foundation is to advance knowledge in the various fields of medical and health research. It is further the general aims to (1) confine contributions to those worthy projects that are in need of initial start-up funding to move the projects forward to the point of other independent support or (2) support highly promising young investigators (e.g. have not been a PI on an R01) at the time when start-up funds are limited and initial progress is dependent on additional funding. The Foundation is most interested in basic research with upstream potential for impacting disease.  For this reason, we encourage only projects involving basic science.

Eligibility:
The applicant must have a permanent appointment in the Medical School. For example: Those with titles of Clinical Lecturer or Clinical Instructor would not qualify for this funding program, as these are not permanent appointments. Those with titles of Research Investigators  and Research Assistant Professor are eligible for this award, as these are permanent positions.

It is not the intent to support projects that are already under way and are already receiving significant grant support to provide long-range funding beyond an initial three-year period of support. The Foundation will not fund overhead, and grants will be made and restricted to domestic institutions.

Grants are made in the amount of $50,000 - $75,000 per year for a period of one to three years and are contingent upon a yearly progress report by the applicant. The Foundation reviews applications three times a year. The next Foundation deadline is August 1, 2011. The University of Michigan may submit a maximum of two proposals.

For consideration as an institutional nominee, submit the items below electronically by June 6, 2011 following the instructions listed on the cover sheetDownload the cover sheet, see FAQs, and view complete Foundation guidelines.

  • Cover sheet
  • Nominating letter from the department chair
  • 3-page research plan
  • NIH formatted biosketch

We acknowledge receipt of all electronic submissions. If you do not receive a response from us by the end of the next business day, please call us at 734-763-4086. Contact Kathryn Ridner at 734-763-4086 or (kridner@umich.edu) with any questions.

The Hartwell Foundation Individual Biomedical Research Award
Internal Deadline: July 15, 2011
Foundation Deadline: November 1, 2011

The Hartwell Foundation Individual Biomedical Research Award provides support for three years at $100,000 direct cost per year.  The goal of the program is to support early-stage, innovative, and cutting-edge biomedical research that has not yet qualified for significant funding from outside sources and that should benefit children.  The Foundation in particular seems driven by leading edge science that has a “story” to it, and that the board member can “visualize.”  That means that there is a bit of bias toward somewhat applied research where one can visualize the (eventual) young patients.  The Foundation’s website offers profiles of much of its supported work including the names of researchers and the titles of their projects.  That may be useful to you as you consider this opportunity.

Michigan has received six of these awards in the last five years:  one each (with primary appointments) in Pharmacy (Victor Yang), Pharmacology (Asim Beg), BioMedical Engineering (Charles Cain), Pediatrics (Jamie Ferrara), Pediatric Surgery (Daniel Teitelbaum), and Dental School (Nan Hatch).  Please feel free to ask these scholars for feedback on ideas you may have for a Hartwell Foundation proposal.  The Hartwell Foundation hosts annual gatherings of its scholars and thus these scientists have exposure to the full complement of supported researchers.

Candidates should (1) be a citizen of the United States (2) hold a full-time appointment in the sponsoring institution (3) be eligible to serve as a principal investigator in biomedical research.  UM may nominate four candidates.

For consideration as an institutional nominee, submit the following electronically in a single PDF document to (feldkamp@umich.edu) by July 15, 2011:

  • 3-page research summary
  • NIH formatted biosketch
  • Nominating letter from the department chair

UM candidates selected to be nominated will be informed by early September.  A full proposal will be due to the Foundation by November 1, 2011.

A complete copy of The Hartwell Foundation's "Application Process and Administrative Guidelines" is available online.

Contact Julie Feldkamp (734-763-4522 or feldkamp@umich.edu), Maureen Martin (734-647-6074 or martinms@umich.edu) or Marvin Parnes (734-764-7231 or mgparnes@umich.edu) with any questions.
