BMRC Bridging Support Program for Biomedical Research
Deadline: September 15, 2011

The Medical School’s Office of Research announces the priorities for the Biomedical Research Council (BMRC) Bridging Support Program for Biomedical Research. The program focus is on bridging a non-funded gap of time during preparation of an A1 application.  The BMRC recommends submitting bridging grants before the A1 submission.  The BMRC is accepting applications for this competitive bridging support for federally funded biomedical research projects with a demonstrated likelihood of continued funding after resubmission (up to $40,000 for one year from the BMRC with required matching from the PI's department).

To be eligible, the PI must have submitted the renewal grant and received the reviewers' summary statement in preparation of a resubmission.  Eligibility is also limited to full-time, on-campus instructional and research faculty with primary appointments in the Medical School.  Grants to be bridged must reside in the Medical School.

The bridging application deadlines are January 15, June 15, and September 15.  Please refer to the website for complete requirements and application information.  If you have questions, please contact Camille Mrozowski at (cmrozow@umich.edu) or 734-615-8802.

U-M and Shanghai Jiao Tong University Fund New Round of Energy and Biomedical Projects

U-M and Shanghai Jiao Tong University have chosen six research teams to win a share of $1.05 million in funding for renewable energy and biomedical technology projects in the second year of a joint program that teams up investigators from both schools. The energy projects chosen aim to improve wind turbines and electric vehicle batteries and to better understand the combustion physics of biofuels.  The healthcare technology efforts are geared toward enhancing treatment of neurological disorders and diagnosis of cancer, as well as exploring nanoparticle drug delivery systems.

The goal of the U-M/SJTU Collaborative Research Program in Renewable Energy Science and Technology is to develop new technologies that reduce global carbon emissions and their impact on climate change. The Collaborative Research Program in Biomedical Technologies will spur technological advances that improve human health.

“The joint program with SJTU is a model for the kinds of collaborations required to address the global challenges our society faces,” says Vice President for Research Stephen Forrest. “It brings complementary research strengths and perspectives to bear on these critical areas, and fosters the cooperation and mutual understanding that underlies realistic solutions.”

The biomedical technology projects are:

  • Integrative neurotechnologies for next-generation neuromodulation
    Principal investigators: Daryl Kipke, U-M Department of Biomedical Engineering and Ning Lan, SJTU Department of Biomedical Engineering
    Goal: To develop innovative technologies that combine deep brain stimulation “brain pacemaker” devices with targeted drugs to more fully modulate neural activity for treatment of neurological disorders.
  • Advanced in vivo photoacoustic imaging and detection of cancer
    Principal investigators: Xueding Wang, U-M Medical School Department of Radiology, and Xunbin Wei, SJTU Department of Biomedical Engineering
    Goal: Explore the capability of utilizing techniques that combine both light and sound to image cancer biomarkers and cancer cell metastasis.
  • Nano drug carrier development utilizing in vivo molecular imaging technology
    Principal investigators: Kyung-Dall Lee, U-M College of Pharmacy and Yuhong Xu, SJTU College of Pharmacy
    Goal: To establish a platform to compare nanoparticle drug delivery systems quickly, cheaply and easily.

This is the second year of a five-year seed phase of the programs, during which officials aim to identify projects that have commercial potential and that are likely to attract follow-on research funding from the U.S. and Chinese governments, as well as from industry. The universities have committed to spending up to $3 million each on their part of the collaborative research over the five-year period.

These research partnerships between U-M and SJTU build on existing collaborations between the two schools. In 2001, U-M became the first non-Chinese academic institution approved to offer graduate engineering degrees in China, at SJTU. In 2005, U-M and SJTU formed a joint institute to manage and direct degree-granting programs offered by both universities to students of both nations.

RESEARCH COMPLIANCE TRAINING AND EDUCATION


Animal Research

Why PAM Is Your Friend!

Monitoring research animal care and use is a requirement and the University of Michigan’s University Committee on Use and Care of Animals (UCUCA) is charged with providing the necessary program oversight.  Post Approval Monitoring (PAM) is one important program through which the UCUCA can ensure and document program integrity, compliance with regulations and guidelines, and adherence to the approved protocol.  PAMs can also serve to facilitate the exchange of information between researchers and the UCUCA staff.  When a PAM is performed correctly it is an opportunity for communication, education, and relationship development between the PIs, research associates, animal care staff and the UCUCA. PAM is not the “animal police” or the “non-compliance hit squad”!  The goal of a PAM is to ensure compliance with all regulations and guidelines while fostering progressive science.    The PAM is a great time for the PI and laboratory personnel to review the approved protocol for the techniques and procedures being conducted in the lab as well as a time when the Regulatory Compliance Associates (RCAs) can educate laboratories regarding changes in policies and guidelines.  RCAs are also there to answer any questions the laboratory staff might have regarding animal care and use.  PAMs are conducted annually on approved animal use protocols.  If you would like to meet with the UCUCA Office regarding an animal use protocol, please contact us at 734-763-8028 or (ucuca.office@umich.edu).  Open communication and proper oversight leads to better animal care and improved science!

U-M Researchers Devise System to Protect Animal Lab Workers from Anesthetic Gas

Anesthetic induction chambers are frequently used in medical research, but in labs without ventilated fume hoods, isoflurane gas poses an immediate and long-term health risk to workers. Employees at U-M have reported dizziness, headaches and fatigue after anesthetizing large groups of animals.

Janet Wolforth, a licensed veterinary technician working in U-M’s Cardiac Surgery Section, and Melissa C. Dyson, veterinarian with the Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM), devised a simple and inexpensive system for flushing waste gas from inductions chambers to minimize exposure. A demonstration of their approach was published this spring in Lab Animal.

Using rubber tubing, a three-way stopcock and a small hand-held vacuum cleaner, Wolforth and Dyson devised a method to pull the used gas into an activated charcoal filter.

“With no commercially available, low-cost, portable gas scavenging system out there, we hope this method can help our colleagues at U-M and around the country breathe a little easier,” Wolforth says.

More information and a video of the device in action can be found online. Wolforth is also investigating commercial applications for the method.  Investigators with questions or comments can reach her at (wolforth@umich.edu).


SHARPENING THE FOCUS:

Tips on Grant Proposal Preparation

“Letters of Support” – Essential or Gratuitous?

By Christine Black, Assistant Director for Research Services, Office of Research

1. Letters of Collaboration: Essential

  • The goals of a letter of collaboration are to:
    • Specify what the consultant(s)/collaborator(s) will contribute to the research.
    • Convince the reviewer that the consultant(s)/collaborator(s) will fulfill the request.
    • Convey enthusiasm for the work.
    • Lend credibility to your proposal.
  • The role of collaborator on project, qualifications, and effort/resource commitment should be echoed in his/her NIH biosketch.

2. Letters of Commitment (e.g., Cost Sharing): Essential

  • These will need to be approved by the institution, so allow more time for approval.
  • Be sure to advise the author about the need for cost sharing (e.g., required? voluntary but needed to achieve the goals?).
  • Be specific about resource commitment (remember: cost sharing commitment is mandatory once grant is funded).

3. Mentor’s Letter: Essential

  • This should be a letter of strong, committed mentoring effort and candidate recommendation (not a letter of reference).
  • Include mentor’s expertise in relevant field, effort that will be devoted to mentee, and commitment to mentee’s success.

4. Letters of Endorsement/Advocacy: Gratuitous?

  • If a letter is not required, but PI feels s/he needs an endorsement to confirm qualifications, resources, etc., be sure the letter focuses on substance and specifics, such as strengths of PI and future directions of the study.
  • Letter must be written by someone who is familiar with the PI or program.
  • Professional letters of endorsement may be more powerful than general, institutional letters of endorsement.

5. The Best Way to Obtain the Letter

  • Draft a copy for the author (including addressee), or send a list of bullet points.
  • Allow enough time for turnaround (2 - 3 weeks).
  • At the UM Medical School, for a quick turnaround on signatures (and for more tips) follow the directions for letters of commitment and endorsement.

Michigan Society of Fellows Postdoctoral Fellowships
Deadline: October 3, 2011 (1:00 PM EDT)

Each year the Michigan Society of Fellows selects four outstanding applicants for appointment to three-year fellowships in the social, physical, and life sciences, and in the professional schools. In 2007, the Mellon Foundation awarded a grant to add four Mellon Fellows annually in the humanities, expanding the number of fellowships awarded each year from four to eight. The newly appointed Postdoctoral Fellows join a unique interdisciplinary community composed of their peers as well as Senior Fellows of the Society.

The Society invites applications from qualified candidates who are at the beginning of their academic careers, having received the Ph.D. or comparable professional or artistic degree between June 1, 2009, and September 1, 2012.

Each Fellow has a three-year appointment as Assistant Professor in an affiliated department of the University and a three-year appointment as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Society of Fellows. This appointment is not tenure-track. The current annual stipend is $52,000. Each fellow is expected to teach the equivalent of one academic year, i.e., a total of two terms during the period of the fellowship. Fellows are expected to be in residence in Ann Arbor for the academic years of appointment (September to May) and to participate in the activities of the Society of Fellows.

Applications from degree candidates and recipients of the Ph.D. from the University of Michigan will not be considered. Visit (http://societyoffellows.umich.edu) for complete information.


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.

Burroughs Wellcome Fund Investigators in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease
Internal Deadline: September 13, 2011

The Investigators in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease award provides $500,000 over a period of five years. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for accomplished investigators still early in their careers to study the pathogenesis of infectious disease at its most fundamental level – the points where human and microbial systems connect. The program supports research that sheds light on the fundamentals that affect the outcomes of this encounter: how colonization, infection, commensalism and other relationships play out at levels ranging from molecular interactions to systemic ones. BWF is particularly interested in work focused on the host, as well as host-pathogen studies originating in viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasite systems. Studies supported by the program may have their roots in the pathogen, but the focus of the work should be on the interplay of host and microbe. Research on under-studied infectious diseases, including pathogenic fungi, protozoan and metazoan diseases, and emerging infections is especially of interest. Biochemical, pharmacological, molecular, genetic, immunologic, and other approaches are all appropriate for support by the program.

Candidates will generally have a M.D., D.V.M., or Ph.D. degree. Candidates must (1) have an established record of independent research and hold a tenure-track position as an assistant professor or equivalent (at the time of application) and (2) be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or Canada at the time of application.

UM may nominate two candidates. To encourage applications from veterinarians, institutions that nominate a researcher who holds the D.V.M. will be allowed three nominations. Institutions may have a single additional nomination if they nominate a researcher working in pathogenic helminths, mycology, or reproductive science. The foundation deadline is November 1, 2011.

NOTE: Not all eligibility criteria may be listed in this abstract. Before submitting an application for this internal competition, it is the applicant’s responsibility to visit the foundation website and verify that both the applicant and their project meet ALL eligibility criteria.

Brain Research Foundation Scientific Innovations Award
Internal Deadline: September 16, 2011

The Brain Research Foundation’s Scientific Innovations Award (SIA) provides funding for innovative science in both basic and clinical neuroscience. This funding mechanism is designed to support creative, exploratory, cutting edge research in well-established research laboratories, under the direction of established investigators. The objective of the SIA is to support projects that may be too innovative and speculative for traditional funding sources but still have a high likelihood of producing important findings. It is expected that investigations supported by these grants will yield high impact findings and result in major grant applications and significant publications in high impact journals.

Each award is limited to $150,000 (direct costs) for a one to two year grant period. The support focus is for new research projects of the highest scientific merit.

To be eligible, the nominee must be a professor or associate professor, working in the area of studies of brain function in health and disease. Current major NIH or other peer-reviewed funding is preferred but evidence of such funding in the past three years is essential. Studies should be related to either normal human brain development or specifically identified disease states. This includes molecular and clinical neuroscience as well as studies of neural, sensory, motor, cognitive, behavioral and emotional functioning in health and disease. The grant proposal must detail a new research project that is not funded by other sources. This should be a unique project for senior investigators who are encouraged to stretch their imagination into areas that can substantially change an area of research.

UM may nominate one candidate. Deadline for the letter of intent to the Foundation is October 17, 2011 (4:00 PM CST).

NOTE: Not all eligibility criteria may be listed in this abstract. Before submitting an application for this internal competition, it is the applicant’s responsibility to visit the foundation website and verify that both the applicant and their project meet ALL eligibility criteria.

The Greenwall Foundation Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics
Internal Deadline: October 1, 2011
Foundation Deadline: November 1, 2011 (Preliminary Application)

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award that enables outstanding junior faculty to carry out original research on policy and moral dilemmas at the intersection of ethics and the life sciences. To maximize Scholars' development, three years of support are provided, requiring a 50% time commitment (carefully monitored) in each of the three years.  Each year the Scholars participate in a learner-centered educational program that includes required attendance at two workshops (spring and fall).

Faculty Scholars will be selected on the basis of their achievements, the strength of their research project, their commitment to the field of bioethics, and support from their home institution. While the amount and quality of an applicant’s research in bioethics will count favorably towards his/her application, outstanding candidates with less direct experience in bioethics will be considered.

ELIGIBILITY:  Applicants must be junior faculty members holding at least a 60% appointment.  Priority will be given to applicants who are below the rank of Associate Professor, who have not received a comparable career development award, and whose work will have an impact on public policy or clinical practice.  Approximately 15-20 applicants will be invited by the Foundation to submit full proposals due in February 2012.

UM may submit one preliminary application.  The Office of the Vice President for Research will coordinate the internal review process.  For consideration as the institutional nominee, submit the following electronically in a single PDF document by October 1, 2011 to (OVPRlimitedsubmissions@umich.edu):

  1. Nomination letter from the department chair.  This letter should explicitly address how the nominee’s work will impact public policy or clinical practice and support the time commitment.
  2. A letter of intent responsive to the RFP, describing the research proposal and its significance.  Please follow the Greenwall Foundation format.
  3. NIH formatted biosketch.

We encourage you to work with Ann Verhey-Henke, Director, Foundation Relations, in preparing your internal proposal.  Ann can provide you with more information about the Greenwall Foundation, the types of projects funded in the Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics, information about the Foundation review process, as well as provide pointers and feedback on writing specifically for this program.  To ensure iterative feedback, we suggest you meet with Ann as soon as possible.  She can be reached at 734-647-0282 or (averhey@umich.edu).

The University's nominees will be notified promptly of their selection and must then prepare and submit their completed preliminary applications (after routing through UM’s eRPM) to the Greenwall Foundation by Monday, November 1, 2011.  Additional information and guidelines for preparation are posted on the Foundation website.

Internal proposals will be evaluated based on the impact and strength of the proposed research; how well the proposal meets the Greenwall Foundation’s stated criteria; and the strength of the nomination letter.

More information is available at the Foundation website. Direct any questions to Christina Pearce (tinajp@umich.edu) or 734-763-1290.
