Junior Faculty Funding Opportunities

The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center has a strong desire to support and develop

their junior faculty.   To accomplish this goal, a Committee has been formed to assist junior

researchers in identifying funding opportunities and is comprised of faculty from multiple colleges

and chaired by Dr. Jimmy Ballard.  The Committee has identified almost 300 funding opportunities

with updates occurring on a regular basis.  The data elements collected include the following: key

words; name of organization ;  name of award;  Internet link; description/purpose;  application

deadline; award amount; award length; requirements/eligibility; and nomination of sponsor. Full

details may be found at:  

http://research.ouhsc.edu/News/TabId/9629/ArtMID/25795/ArticleID/5184/Junior-Faculty-Funding-Opportunities.aspx

 

 

The Office of Technology Development will offer the Innovation to Impact Series

Session 7 - “Understanding SBIR/STTR Opportunities.” Topics to be discussed will be:  What are

the SBIR and STTR Programs?; Qualities of a competitive project; and SBIR support at OU.

This session will occur on February 28th from Noon- 1:00 pm in Biomedical Research Center

Building,  Room 103. Lunch will be provided.

Please RSVP to rashaffer@ou.edu by February 23rd. Space is limited to the first 15 attendees.

Online Partnership to Accelerate Research (OnPAR) - Leidos Health’s Life Sciences

has partnered with NIH to accelerate the biomedical research and development enterprise by

matching high-scoring (e.g., those within the 30th percentile), unfunded NIH applications with

private biomedical foundations and/or industries seeking to fund promising research via OnPAR. 

OnPAR member organizations are desperately seeking unfunded applications for:

  • Diabetes (1 and 2) and complications
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Psoriasis
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Lupus nephritis
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Alzheimer's
  • Parkinson’s
  • Wearable technologies and smartphone applications for early detection of  disease initiation

And progression

  • Acute myocardial infarction/ischemia-reperfusion therapies
  • Acute/ischemic stroke
  • Arrhythmia
  • Peripheral arterial disease

If your unfunded NIH application is within one-year of council review, you may receive

communication from NIH regarding OnPAR (see attachments on information sent to NIH Program

Officials).  NIH Program Officials will not be involved in the OnPAR process itself.  Alternatively,

you may contact OnPAR yourself if you feel that you qualify. For additional information please go to:

https://onpar.leidosweb.com/

 

 

NIH Progress Report Update - it is now possible to delegate working on I-RPPR and F-RPPR

to anyone with the Assistant (ASST) role. As with the old Final Progress Report, only the SO or PI

are allowed to submit the I-RPPR and F-RPPR.

 

 

Otis Sullivant Award - All undergraduate, graduate and professional students as well as

full-time faculty and staff members on OU’s Norman and Oklahoma City campuses are eligible

to be nominated for the $20,000 Otis Sullivant Award. Only members of the OU community are

eligible to be considered for the prize.

The award is funded by a $500,000 endowment established by Edith Kinney Gaylord of Oklahoma

City shortly before her death in 2001. It is named in honor of the late Otis Sullivant, the chief

political writer for the Daily Oklahoman who for 40 years was one of the state’s most influential

journalists.

Nominees should exhibit intuitiveness, instant comprehension and empathy, be observant and

interpret from their experience. The benefit to society and the broader community, which comes

from the nominee’s insight, also will be considered.

Nominees for the Sullivant Award may be made by calling Rhonda Flores-Stone in the Office of

Development at 325-1700, writing to her at the Office of Development, 339 W. Boyd St., Suite 101,

Norman, OK 73019-5141, or by picking up forms in the Development Office at Whitehand Hall,

Suite 101. Applications must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. Friday, February 23rd.­  

Those who wish to obtain an application electronically can do so by emailing their request for an

application to Rhonda Flores-Stone at rfstone@ou.edu.
