Additional Information: MAILMAN INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH PILOT GRANT AWARDS; Pilot Funding in Preparation for submitting R01, P01, U01, and related NIH grants; LETTERS OF INTENT: DUE FEBRUARY 23, 2018; AWARDS PROPOSALS: DUE MARCH 16, 2018; Today’s challenging public health issues increasingly require contributions at the intersections of academic disciplines. For this reason, the Mailman School of Public Health launched an initiative to foster interdisciplinary research within the school and beyond and created the Interdisciplinary Research Task Force comprised of faculty from across the Mailman School’s academic departments and research centers.  The Task Force identified four thematic areas for initial exploration and convened workshops on each for faculty from across Mailman departments and centers to present research and discuss synergies in expertise and interests. These topics were: (*) Substance Use and Misuse; (*) Brain Health and Mental Health; (*) Child and Adolescent Health; (*) Precision Health and Predictive Analytics for Disease Prevention; To build on the vast potential for interdisciplinary science in these areas that was evident during the workshops, the Dean’s Office has created a pilot grant program to help advance interdisciplinary research concepts to grant applications.  The pilot program will support innovative proposals, which are interdisciplinary in scope and that will increase the likelihood of successful funding of NIH R01/P01/U01 or equivalent grants. The expectation is that funded projects will produce at least one NIH grant application per team.; Timeline and Deadlines: Letters of Intent: Due February 23, 2018 (02/23/2018); Proposals: Due March 16, 2018 (03/16/2018); Award notifications: April 1, 2018 (04/01/2018) (anticipated); Deadline for NIH submission: February 5, 2019 (02/05/2019); by selected pilot grant teams; Award Amounts and Selection Process: Pilot applications can request up to $30,000 to support grant development for projects that will produce an investigator-initiated grant application such as an R01 by no later than February 5, 2019.  Funding of up to $75,000 will be available to support the development of large center grant applications (e.g., a P01), which will be submitted no later than February 5, 2019.  Pilot applications should fully explain why funds are needed to amplify the ability to get a funded grant and justify the amount of funding requested.  The Dean’s Office will fund up to one project that will lead to a large NIH center grant application and as many interdisciplinary investigator-initiated R01/U01-type grants as are meritorious.; An Internal Review Committee will rigorously evaluate all proposals and review criteria will mirror those used by NIH.  Applicants are encouraged to include innovation in analytic methods, in collaboration with faculty from Biostatistics or other Mailman departments. Note that, if areas of expertise are needed and not readily identified, the Dean’s office and/or Biostatistics Chair Dr. DuBois Bowman, can assist in identifying potential experts. In considering proposals, emphasis will be placed on the degree to which the project advances Mailman’s interdisciplinary research goals and the likelihood of future NIH funding for the project and possibly its extensions.; Deliverables: As a condition of funding, awardees will be required to submit at least one NIH grant application by February 5, 2019.  Quarterly progress reports are also required. Given this tight timeline, if the proposal requires IRB approval before starting, the process for obtaining approval should start as early as possible.; Submission Instructions: Letter of Intent:  Prospective applicants should submit a letter of intent that includes the following information: (*) Descriptive project title; (*) Brief summary (1-2 paragraphs) of the project activity; (*) Name(s) and department(s) of the PI(s) (multiple PIs are permitted); (*) Names and departments of other key personnel.; The letter of intent should be sent to Craig Kandell at ckk7@cumc.columbia.edu by February 23.  The letter of intent is not binding but will help the review committee to estimate its potential review workload and plan the review process.; Proposal:  The format for each project is as follows (page limits do apply): Sections for Each Project: (1) NIH Biosketch for all Key Personnel; (2) Specific Aims [1 page]; (3) (a) Significance, (b) Innovation, and (c) Overview of Research Team. Highlight the impact of interdisciplinary contributions [2 pages]; (4) Approach, including preliminary studies and a timeline for completion. Highlight the impact of interdisciplinary contributions [2 pages]; (5) References; (6) Detailed plans and timeline for NIH grant submission(s).; (7) Budget and Justification (may include reasonable salary support for the PI); Contacts: Investigators interested in submitting applications are encouraged to discuss them with Associate Dean for Research Resources, Dr. Pam Factor-Litvak, or Vice Dean for Faculty Affairs and Research, Regina Santella. For administrative issues contact Craig Kandell.; Frequently Asked Questions: (1) Can funding be used to develop non-NIH proposals?  This pilot effort will maintain an NIH focus, since the school’s grant funding objectives link directly to NIH; however, the program will consider projects geared toward other federal grant applications.; (2) Is the program open to all NIH funding mechanisms?  Yes, while the typical project will produce R01, P01, U01, or similar applications, the program is open to other mechanisms.  Keep in mind, however, that this program is a Mailman School investment and the review committee will strongly consider likely return on investment in its work. Therefore, an R03 application may be viewed by the review committee as offering less compelling near-term return on investment than a strong R01 application.; (3) Can the research team include investigators outside of Mailman or Columbia University?  Yes, the research team may include faculty outside of the Mailman School.  However, the proposal must include investigators spanning two or more Mailman School departments or centers, the PI must be a faculty member (professorial or research scientist title) with a primary appointment at the Mailman School, and the grant must be submitted through a Mailman School Department or Center.; (4) Are international projects permitted?  Yes, with the same requirement as question 3 above.; (5) Do projects have to address the topics covered in the workshops?  Yes. This pilot program was designed to build on the work of the Interdisciplinary Research Task Force, which identified these four areas as ones for initial exploration.  The funding will support the development of grant proposals based on conversations during and subsequent to the Mailman School’s interdisciplinary workshops.

[NTW] [RESEARCH SUPPORT SERVICES]
Update on Research Support Services

Sponsor: Mailman School

Deadline(s): relative to upcoming NIH Grant Submission Deadlines: 5 weeks prior to submission deadline (Inform R2 of intent to utilize services); 4 weeks prior to submission deadline (science draft for external review); 2 weeks prior to submission deadline (submission for editing services)

Contact: Pam Factor-Litvak (Associate Dean, Research Resources, and Professor of Epidemiology) prf1@columbia.edu; Craig Kandell (Project Coordinator, Research Resources) ckk7@columbia.edu  

Link(s): https://r2eport.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/deanschargeexternalreviewfall2017aspostededited10-31-17pdf.pdf   

Additional Information: Dear Mailman School faculty,

 

I want to give you an update on Research Support Services—the School’s new program for pre-submission external review and final editing. As Dean Fried wrote in October, the program is geared “to support faculty in preparing grant applications with the highest chance of success.”

 

I’m happy to report that those using the services this fall have found them valuable. Katherine Keyes in Epidemiology spoke enthusiastically at the recent Assembly: “It was a great experience. I got to focus on the science without having to deal with any of the administrative aspects. I got really good feedback. I will be using these services again.”

 

In my estimation, all the grants were greatly improved by these services. Of course, the ultimate test is how they are scored and funded. As soon I have that information, I will share it with you.

 

I encourage everyone to take advantage of Research Support Services to give your grants a competitive advantage. Please keep in mind the following deadlines:

 

  • 5 weeks prior to submission deadline—Inform Research Resources (via Craig Kandell at ckk7@cumc.columbia.edu) if you plan on using Research Support Services with information about they the type of grant at least five weeks prior to the grant due date. If you seek external review, please provide the name and contacts of at least three potential reviewers so we can reach out to them in your order of preference.

 

  • 4 weeks prior to submission deadline —Send us your science draft for external review three to four weeks prior to submission. We will forward it to the external reviewer. Generally, they provide feedback within a week.

 

  • 2 weeks prior to submission deadline —For editorial services, send us your manuscript at least 10 days ahead of the deadline. We will make arrangements with the editor. Comments will be returned to Craig and the PI for finalization and submission within a few days.

 

Please keep in mind that it may take you a day or two to incorporate comments and edits. For best results, get in touch with us prior to these deadlines.

 

Research Support Services are limited to first-time submissions of R01, P, K, Center, or other complex NIH proposals by full-time faculty with primary appointments in the School. For other grant types and resubmissions, Research Resources is available to provide feedback.

 

If you have any questions about your eligibility or the above process, please visit Research Resources online or contact me at prf1@columbia.edu.

 

Best wishes,

Pam Factor-Litvak
