The NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare released a new 30-minute webinar discussing how Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests related to animal welfare compliance are handled.
Reminder: Investigators and all key personnel involved in human subjects research are required to receive education in the protection of human subjects. One way to satisfy this requirement is by completing the newly launched Human Research Protection Training offered by the HHS Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP).
Considering alternatives to animals in your application is the topic of our next NIH All About Grants podcast. Drs. Neera Gopee with the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare and Christine Livingston with the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences join us for this conversation (MP3 / Transcript). We will go into the 3Rs (replace, refine, and reduce), helpful resources for relevant policies, what’s needed for the vertebrate animal section, role for IACUCs and peer review, as well as organoids, in silico models, and other alternatives…oh my again!
Not to worry, the entire conference is still available to you on the event platform until Nov 19! The only thing missing is the immediate access to staff that the “live” event offered. Recordings of the presentations and related materials, as well as a plethora of resources from the Institute and Center Exhibit Hall booths await your exploration.
Dawn Corbett, NIH’s Inclusion Policy Officer, shares why human subjects’ protection and monitoring plans are important in this next NIH’s All About Grants podcast. We will discuss what should be included in these plans as part of your application, what should be left out, what are risks and what are benefits to study participants, how reviewers assess it all, and so much more.
That’s a bit…odd. That gel image looks photoshopped. The data looks to good to be true. And, wait a second, that figure appeared in another paper! These are examples of research misconduct. What do you do if you suspect research misconduct? Join us for this next installment of NIH’s All About Grants podcast with Dr. Christine Ring on addressing research misconduct.
You have a promising research idea that may involve human participants to carry out the study. Do you know what to do next? Join us for the next NIH’s All About Grants podcast conversation about how you know you are doing human subjects’ research.
As you prepare your NIH grant application, keep these annotated form sets handy for key tips on filling out each section. These documents are a great visual resource for understanding many of the business rule checks we will run against your submitted application. Of course, you MUST follow the instructions in your funding opportunity announcement and application guide, but these documents are helpful for those times when you just need a quick reference.
We continue to add new resources to our COVID-19: Information for NIH Applicants and Recipients of NIH Funding webpage. We hope they are helpful in navigating this unprecedented situation. Here is a summary of what’s new since the last Nexus.
Calling all applicants proposing research with vertebrate animals – check out the latest online learning module on the Vertebrate Animals Section in grant applications. This interactive module will assist applicants and offerors in preparing this section of the application, and will serve as a valuable resource for reviewers in evaluating the Vertebrate Animal Section of applications and proposals.
