Visits by Federal Law Enforcement Officers

Many federal law enforcement agencies have university liaison programs. If you receive a visit or other contact from a federal law enforcement officer, the CWRU Compliance Office reminds you to first request identification and then to immediately contact the CWRU Office of General Counsel, 368-4286. The Office of General Counsel will communicate directly with the agency to ensure that any inquiries are addressed completely and appropriately.

Questions? Contact Lisa Palazzo (368.5791) or Boyd Kumher (368.0833) in the CWRU Compliance Office.

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)

Key Deadlines: March 23, 2015, 5:00pm (CWRU Internal Submission Deadline), July 13, 2015, 5:00pm EST(agency application).

The Collections in Support of Biological Research (CSBR) Program provides funds: 1) for improvements to secure, improve, and organize collections that are significant to the NSF BIO-funded research community; 2) to secure collections-related data for sustained, accurate, and efficient accessibility of the collection to the biological research community; and 3) to transfer collection ownership responsibilities.

The CSBR program provides for enhancements that secure and improve existing collections, result in accessible digitized specimen-related data, and develop better methods for specimen curation and collection management. Requests should demonstrate a clear and urgent need to secure the collection, and the proposed activities should address that need.
