More Than Four Million Newborn Blood Spot Cards Now Available to U-M Researchers

The Michigan Neonatal Biobank has made more than four million newborn screening blood spot cards available to U-M investigators for a variety of scientific studies.

Collected at birth from every infant born in Michigan, the dried blood samples come from mandatory heel-pricks that screen for PKU and 49 other rare disorders. These de-identified samples have been properly preserved and stored and have tremendous potential to aid genetic studies and other research into topics such as the neonatal origins of childhood disorders, the epidemiology of rare disorders, the presence of heavy metals or other substances in newborns, and more.

“This is a tremendous resource for U-M investigators,” says Ed Goldman, J.D., an Associate Professor in the Medical School’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and president of the Michigan Biotrust. “These blood samples date back to 1984, providing a retrospective review of someone’s genome at birth. This means that a longitudinal study that might have taken 30 years could take 30 days – or less.”

For example, an EPA-funded study completed in 2011, which included 200 samples from the Michigan Neonatal Biobank, found that 8 percent of tested infants from the Lake Superior Basin region had mercury levels higher than those recommended by the EPA. It is suspected that the higher mercury levels are due to fish consumption during the mother’s pregnancy. A $1.4 million Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant is now funding work aimed at reducing prenatal mercury exposure from fish consumption.

To see how researchers are already using this vast resource, view a list of current and past studies that use dried blood spots from the Biobank.

According the Michigan Neonatal Biobank’s website, the dried blood spots can be used for studies on genetic and chronic diseases, genomics and infectious disease, and for prevalence studies. For approved research studies, the samples can also be linked by the Michigan Department of Community Health to newborn screening results and statewide public health laboratories, making it possible to request samples that are associated with a known health outcome, including cancers and birth defects.

Requesting Samples
Initial inquiries and requests for assistance with study design can be sent to the Michigan Neonatal Biobank at welcome@mnbb.org or by calling 313-483-0386.

About the MNB
The Michigan Neonatal Biobank is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. Its board includes representatives from the Michigan Department of Community Health, U-M, MSU, WSU, and the VanAndel Institute, and is located in Tech Town in Detroit. The MNB is also affiliated with the Newborn Screening Translational Research Network (NBSTRN), which connects researchers to resources.

New $9M NIH Grant Establishes Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Research Core

Adapted from a press release by Shantell Kirkendoll, UMHS Public Relations, Marketing & Communications

With a $9.1 million core grant from the National Institutes of Health, researchers at the U-M will broaden their ability to improve disease diagnosis through metabolic profiling.

The grant has created the Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Research Core, one of only three centers in the country that will help researchers examine small molecules called “metabolites” to detect changes in cell behavior and organ function.

Charles Burant, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Michigan Metabolomics and Obesity Center (MMOC) in the MEND Division, and the Dr. Robert C. and Veronica Atkins Professor of Metabolism, is the principal investigator of the grant, with Stephen Brown, Ph.D., serving as program coordinator of the new regional metabolomics research core.

A metabolome — the sum of all metabolites at any given moment— is a form of chemical readout of the state of health of the cell or body. It provides a wealth of information about a person’s nutrition, infection, health, and disease status. From diagnosis to disease follow-up, metabolomics may transform our ability to understand the mechanisms underlying disease and help investigators develop new strategies for treatment.

“Physicians and scientists around the world are beginning to realize that metabolic profiling will have a significant impact on the diagnosis, prevention and monitoring of many diseases,” said Dr. Burant.

Several University of Michigan investigators will lead additional components of the core, including Robert Kennedy, Ph.D., Hobart H. Willard Professor of Chemistry; Subramanian Pennathur, M.B.B.S., Associate Professor of Internal Medicine; Brian Athey, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics; Naisyn Wang, Ph.D., Professor of Statistics, and Barbara Mirel, Ph.D., Associate Research Scientist at the School of Education. Grace Wu will serve as administrator.

It’s hoped metabolomics will provide a path to personalized medicine, by offering insights into detection, prevention, and treatment of a variety of diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes based on a patient’s metabolic profile.

Over the next five years, the NIH expects to invest more than $51.4 million nationwide to accelerate metabolomics research. The first round of NIH funding creates the three regional comprehensive metabolomics research cores. Others are at University of California-Davis and Research Triangle Institute in Research Triangle Park, N.C.

Center for the Discovery of New Medicine Announces First Round of Faculty Grants

The Center for the Discovery of New Medicines (CDNM) recently announced its first round of grants, awards up to $50,000 that support access to U-M drug discovery cores such as high-throughput screening, pharmacokinetics and medicinal chemistry cores. Eight projects from across the U-M have been funded, including those that will investigate new therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, of antibiotic-resistant bacteria involved in food poisoning, and amphetamine addiction.

As the pharmaceutical industry decreases investment in early drug discovery research, more academic groups have started to identify compounds that could become drugs and to test and refine those compounds. The CDNM pilot grants provide a jump-start to these non-traditional projects to speed their progress toward commercialization and ultimately clinical use. The next deadline for pilot grant applications is February 15, 2013find guidelines and watch for the latest news.

Animal Research

Meeting the Challenges of the New Guide

The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (Guide) is an internationally accepted reference on animal care and use. In the United States, institutions receiving NIH support, such as the University of Michigan, are required to base their animal care and use programs on the Guide. Since its first publication in 1963, the Guide has been updated seven times—most recently in 2011.  The new Guide makes significant changes related to environmental enrichment, social housing, multiple survival surgeries, the use of transgenic animals, and regulatory requirements for aquatic animals.

The University Committee on Use and Care of Animals (UCUCA) sees as its mission to help faculty, staff, and students comply with all applicable federal, state, and institutional requirements and policies related to the care and use of laboratory animals.   During the upcoming months, we will be implementing many changes designed to improve our service to the university research community while bringing UM into compliance with the new Guide, which has now been approved by the Office for Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) and adopted by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC).  We are committed to working closely with our investigators to meet all the new regulatory compliance requirements in the most effective manner.  We will continue to alert our investigators of any and all new compliance issues related to animal research in a timely fashion and with suggestions as to how to deal with these.  If you would like additional information on all of the changes in the new Guide or have any questions, please feel free to contact the UCUCA Office (734-763-8028) or the UCUCA Compliance Manager (Elaine Videan Joseph, videanen@umich.edu) directly.

Finally, as a reminder, the UCUCA office will be closed from December 25, 2012 through January 1, 2013.  During this time, protocols and amendments will not be reviewed or processed.  We hope you have a pleasant holiday and look forward to a successful new year!


SHARPENING THE FOCUS:

Tips on Grant Proposal Preparation

Know Your Audience!

By Chris Black, M.L.S., Assistant Director for Research Services, Office of Research

(This is one in a series of tips published in UMMS Research News about writing proposals.)

The main audience for a grant proposal is the reviewers. In some cases, you will have a good idea of the identities of the reviewers (e.g., NIH Study Section members; small foundation board of directors). In some instances the reviewers are a combination of internal and external reviewers. In other cases the reviewers are all internal (e.g., NSF EAGER grants, NIH Early Independence Award). If you can identify the reviewers ahead of time, think strategically about how that may be useful to tailor the application. For example, can you cite a relevant publication of the reviewer? Do you know by their publications or reputation if they are scientific risk takers or conservatives? Have you made a personal contact with the reviewing program officer to ask how you may strengthen the relevancy of your study?

In many cases, the reviewers will remain anonymous to the grant applicant. Learn what you can about the scientific backgrounds of your reviewers. Then, here are some important considerations from any reviewers’ perspectives:

  • They may not be familiar with your area – don’t make assumptions especially regarding significance – spell it out.
  • They may not be familiar with your methodologies (e.g., behavioral vs. basic science; unusual data analysis; new technologies); be sure to give enough detail to help them visualize the procedures.
  • They probably do not have a lot of time to read your application –
    • write like a “scientist” with focused aims/hypotheses
    • use lots of headings and subheadings and short paragraphs
    • use white space when possible, and do not justify the right hand margins, to make the page easier to visually navigate
  • If the reviewer likes your proposal, he or she will have to be your advocate to their peer review group; so give the reviewer the data, arguments, justifications, and fervor they need to make a good case that your proposal should be funded.

Analyzing the audience is one of the first steps in persuasive writing. Remember…

“Put the argument into a concrete shape, into an image, some hard phrase, round and solid as a ball, which they can see and handle and carry home with them, and the cause is half won."
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dana Foundation Program in Brain and Immuno-Imaging
Internal Deadline: January 9, 2013

The Dana Foundation Program in Brain and Immuno-Imaging focuses on improving human brain and brain-immune functioning to promote health, and prevent and treat disease.  Funds support pilot-testing of promising, high-risk, and innovative ideas with a direct clinical application and that, when successful, are competitive for larger-scale support from other funders. Scientists may use either structural/physiological brain imaging techniques, cellular and molecular imaging technologies, or a combination of both. Submitted proposals should focus on imaging in patients or patient tissues, and healthy volunteers.

This program focuses on providing support to faculty researchers who have demonstrated the potential for independent research careers who are at the assistant professor level, or in the first few years of their associate professor appointments. Promising early career investigators who have not yet been awarded more than one independent research grant (R01 from the NIH or equivalent from another Federal agency) are eligible to apply for funding of up to $200,000 payable over three years.

Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation Grants
Internal Deadline: January 17, 2013

The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) is dedicated to conducting basic and translational cancer research with the intent of developing new therapies or preventive strategies for cancer through the understanding of mechanisms of disease development. Through collaborative grants, the sharing of information, reagents, technologies and ideas, and the organization of international conferences, SWCRF has created an “Institute Without Walls” with scientific programs spanning multiple institutions and disciplines.

SWCRF seeks to fund investigators interested in differentiation therapy of cancer -- the notion that the cancer cell can be re-programmed to re-acquire aspects of normal cell differentiation including terminal cell division and programmed cell death.   Specific themes of interest to SWCRF include studies that address:

  • Basic and translational research focused on mechanisms of gene regulation that govern critical cell decisions in the process of cell diversification from the tumor initiating cell to the differentiated state
  • Projects on aberrant gene regulators in malignancy
  • Research on aberrant epigenetics in malignancy
  • Studies on the cell decisions on cell dormancy versus proliferation
  • Research on cell life and death

Priority will be given to:

  • Proposals addressing promising new areas of study for the applicant, not yet funded by the National Institutes of Health or other major granting agencies.
  • Basic studies that will directly impact the understanding of the abnormal program of the cancer cell
  • Translational studies with patient specimens; correlative studies of clinical trials.

An initial, two-year grant will consist of up to $100,000 per year of direct cost (no indirects). Upon completion of two years of funding, review of progress and approval by the grants review committee, a third year of funding may be considered. The SWCRF project should not overlap with other sources of support.

Applicants must be established investigators with a tenure-track or tenured appointment holding as Principal Investigator at least one grant from a major funding source such as the NIH, NSF, DOD, ACS.  The applicant may hold a K08 grant, a K99/R00 grant or another major career transition grant, such as those from the Burroughs Welcome Foundation or Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Equal consideration will be given to junior and senior investigators.

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 review the RFA and verify that BOTH the applicant AND their project meet ALL eligibility criteria.

UM may nominate one candidate. Deadline for submission of an application to the foundation is March 18, 2013.

Novo Nordisk Diabetes and Obesity Biologics Science Forum Awards – Invitation to Submit
Deadline: February 15, 2013

The University of Michigan has been approached by Novo Nordisk with a Request for Proposals, an opportunity for $250,000 to $500,0000 (plus indirects) in awards over a two-year period.

These awards are part of the Novo Nordisk's Diabetes and Obesity Biologics Science Forum, which will take place in Chicago, April 16-17, 2013. It is a competitive process, with proposals addressing non-clinical research related to new biologic therapeutics and targets amenable to biologic therapeutics or novel effects of known biologics in the field of Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes, including microvascular complications, and obesity. This is an unusual opportunity because Novo Nordisk will recommend funding of projects based on the presentations at the Science Forum before detailed research plans are developed.

Submission of pre-proposal summaries, the first step in the award process, are due to Novo Nordisk no later than Friday, February 15, 2013More details can be found online.
