Student Researchers and COI Disclosures
Student researchers who are listed on human subjects research protocols are required to have an Outside Interest Disclosure form on file with the Office of Research Administration (ORA). To help establish that the design, conduct, and reporting of research will be free from bias resulting from Investigator financial conflict of interests, disclosures are required not only for faculty and staff, but also student researchers.
For more information on the CWRU Outside Interest Disclosure process, see: https://research.case.edu/Compliance/COI.cfm.
Reminder: New NIH biosketch format effective May 25th, 2015
The new NIH Biosketch format will take effect for applications submitted on or after May 25, 2015. Key changes include:
- Extending the biosketch page limit to 5 pages
- Allowing PIs and researchers to include up to four references in their personal statement
- Allowing researchers to describe up to five of their most important contributions to science
- Allowing researchers to include a link that provides access to a full list of your published work
Kathy Blazar, interim director at our Cleveland Health Sciences Library, has prepared a power point presentation that can help you navigate the new format: http://www.case.edu/chsl/library/NIHBiosketch.pptx.
Additional points to consider:
If you have questions about the process, please contact Kathy Blazar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Investigators need to update their personal profile on eRA Commons
- Public access compliance need to be up to date
- All non-CWRU, most especially international, collaborators must also be compliant if they are named as key personnel.
Doris Duke Charitable Foundation – Building Demand for the Arts
The Doris Duke Building Demand for the Arts grants support organizations and artists in joint efforts to develop audience demand for jazz, theatre and/or contemporary dance. While many programs focus on the supply side of the supply/demand equation, this program is predicated on the belief that artists and organizations can work together in imaginative ways to create and pilot methods of reaching the public and developing interest in and access to the performing arts. This program encourages creative thinking about how to increase this demand and to engage communities in new ways—which may include but are not necessarily limited to the traditional artist-audience dynamic.
The program is divided into two distinct grant initiatives: Exploration Grants, supporting hosted visits for artists of at least 30 days over a period of up to 15 months during which artists and organizations are to begin to imagine and plan ways to build demand; and Implementation Grants, supporting artists hosted by organizations for at least 90 days over a period of up to three years. Both Exploration and Implementation grants will be offered in 2015 but organizations may only apply for one of the grant types. A total of 40 Implementation grants will be awarded in the next two rounds.
Sponsor Deadline for Intent to Apply Form: April 24, 2015
