Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN)
The Bladder Cancer Advocacy is now accepting applications for the 2015 Young Investigator Awards. The $100,000 grants will cover costs associated with a two-year bladder cancer-specific research proposal. The purpose of this grant is to support the development of outstanding research scientists and clinical cancer research investigators who have demonstrated a commitment to improving the understanding and treatment of bladder cancer. Investigators may be working in basic, translational, clinical, epidemiologic, bioengineering or any other field, but must be working in a research environment capable of supporting transformational bladder cancer research.
Application Deadline: March 4, 2015

amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research
amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, has announced the availability of funding to support research relevant to exploring HIV persistence and the potential for HIV eradication. amfAR has established a new funding mechanism known as Impact Grants to support the in-depth development of concepts where preliminary data have indicated genuine promise in curing HIV. Impact Grants are conducted over a four-year funding period with up to $2,000,000 in total funding (including up to 20% indirect costs) and should include basic, animal and clinical (in vivo or ex vivo) research. Impact Grants aim to directly inform clinical efforts to safely eliminate or control latent/persistent HIV reservoirs. Priority will be given to projects with a clear pathway to development of an implementable intervention in humans.
Total Cost Maximum: $2,000,000
Performance Period: 4 years (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2019)
Portal Request Form Deadline: Friday, February 27, 2015, 3:00 PM ET

Research Best Practices Day 2015
Friday, February 27, 2015
9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Wolstein Research Building, Room 1413
Registration is now open for "Research Best Practices Day 2015". This annual event is open to the entire research community. Each year, several topics are presented by our local experts as part of CWRU's ongoing training in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). We encourage faculty, staff and students to attend one or more of the sessions that are applicable to their research. Please join us for a day dedicated to enhancing research practices at Case Western Reserve University.
Research Misconduct Cases - The Insiders' Stories
Join us for a panel discussion about the research misconduct process. Hear from CWRU's Research Integrity Officer, someone who inadvertently discovered misconduct and reported it, the chair of several research misconduct committees and the Dean of Graduate Studies. Each has a unique perspective, and you are sure to learn many "best practices" that will be useful in your own research career.
Peer Review - The Insiders' Stories
In this session, you will have the opportunity to hear from a 14-year veteran executive editor of a peer reviewed journal and a frequent federal grant reviewer. Each will provide his or her perspective on what to consider in order to improve the likelihood of a successful submission.
The Informed Consent Process - Tips and Tactics to Increase Privacy and Decrease Complexity
In this session, we will discuss ways in which the privacy of research participants can be enhanced. In addition, we will explore how to create an effective informed consent form and process with reduced complexity.
Register for one or more sessions at: http://research.case.edu/Education/Onlinecalendar.cfm.
