NEWS FROM RESEARCH AFFAIRS
Looking for Funding Opportunities? Check out the revised New Funding Opportunities page. It has recently been updated with opportunities from the American Heart Association, Department of Defense (DOD) office of Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP), and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
Another resource for searching for funding opportunities is SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network), which has more than 40,000 opportunities from more than 10,000 global sponsors. To access this system, log into LLeRA (era.llu.edu) and click on the ‘Find Funding’ at the top of the page. Links to training videos for how to use the system are in the upper right corner of the SPIN page.
Sequestration: The Federal government will continue to operate under a continuing resolution for the rest of FY 2013. In addition, the sequestration cuts have started to take effect. What does that mean to our research community? Most non-competing continuations will be funded at reduced levels and new awards may be delayed or not funded at all. For example at NIH all non-competing continuation awards are currently being funded at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level). Now that sequestration has occurred, NIH will likely reduce the final FY 2013 funding levels of non-competing continuation grants and expects to make fewer competing awards to allow the agency to meet the available budget allocation.
Dr. Michael Hamrell, president of MORIAH Consultants, will speak at the next Research Affairs monthly seminar on ‘Investigator-initiated research and emergency use of investigational products.’ The event will be held Tuesday, May 14, 2013, from 12-1 pm in the Research Affairs conference room. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
