ORA Research News - Monday, August 13, 2018

The Oklahoma Clinical and Translational Science Institute (OCTSI) and Oklahoma Shared Clinical

and Translational Resources (OSCTR) is soliciting applications for its Clinical and Translational

Research Pilot (CTRP) Grants Program. The purpose of the program is to provide funding for

collaborative and/or multi-disciplinary clinical and translational pilot projects between investigators

of the OSCTR member institutions.

The program seeks to support proposals designed to generate preliminary data that will result in

improved health and/or healthcare for citizens of Oklahoma and other IDeA states and enhance the

competitiveness of the investigators for future extramural funding. The program also seeks to fund

innovative concepts, approaches, and methodologies that bring fresh new ideas to solving the

health issues of those living in Oklahoma and collaborating IDeA states. Projects that focus on the

medically underserved and on health concerns prevalent within Oklahoma and our OSCTR partners

will be a priority. Only projects which meet the NIH definition of clinical and/or translational research

will be accepted. Proposals are due September 21, 2018.

More information can be found at http://osctr.ouhsc.edu/pilots2018/

 

 

OHRP Announces Availability of Three Draft Guidance Documents Related to

Revised Common Rule

NIH issued guidance for implementing the burden-reducing provisions of the 2018 Common Rule

(NOT-OD-18-211). Subsequently on July 20, 2018, the HHS Office for Human Research Protections

(OHRP) has announced the availability of three draft guidance documents that relate to three burden-

reducing provisions in the revised Common Rule that institutions may choose to implement during the

delay period (July 19, 2018 through January 20, 2019):

  1. Scholarly and Journalistic Activities Deemed Not to be Research:  2018 Requirements

  1. Elimination of Institutional Review Board (IRB) Review of Research Applications and Proposals 2018

Requirements

https://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/regulations-and-policy/requests-for-comments/draft-guidance-elimination-of-irb-review-of-research-applications-and-proposals/index.html

OHRP issued a Federal Register Notice of Availability (NOA) about these draft guidance documents

and has posted these guidance documents in draft form because the general compliance delay

period began on July 19, 2018.

 

 

NEW OMRF MASTER CORE SERVICES AGREEMENT

OUHSC & OMRF have completed a new master agreement for OMRF core services on sponsored

projects.  This new agreement (attached) will allow researchers to bypass ORA for services provided

by OMRF provided the prices & requested service are listed on their website

(https://omrf.org/research-faculty/core-facilities/).  If the service is not listed on this site or is a custom

service, you must still route an ICA to  ORA for processing.   

To use the new master agreement, follow these steps:

1.       Enter a requisition in PeopleSoft

a.       List the type of service to be provided in the line comments

b.       Electronically attach copy of Master Agreement (July 1, 2018)

2.       Submit for approval per usual process in Peoplesoft.

We hope that this new process makes contracting with OMRF easier for our researchers.  Questions? 

Contact ORA  (hscora@ouhsc.edu) or Purchasing (askpurchasing@ouhsc.edu )

NIH – Where do I Put the Information I know You’d Want, But Didn’t Ask For? 

The applicable application guide and funding opportunity announcement provide very specific

guidance on what to include in your application and, in some cases, there are page limits you

must stay within to convey the requested information.

If you have information that doesn’t fit in page-limited attachments like your Specific Aims and

Research Strategy, rework those attachments until you tell the best story possible within the

confines of the page limits. Do not try to stuff that extra information into other non-limited fields

of the application forms. Similarly, if you have information that doesn’t have a “natural home”

based on our instructions, don’t include it.

There are several form fields with tempting names like “Appendix,” “Other Attachments,” “Other

Requested Information,” and “Other Clinical Trial-related Attachments.” DO NOT use those fields

unless requested to do so in the application guide or announcement.

Even if you have the best of intentions, you need to resist the temptation to force fit information

into your application where it doesn’t belong. The page limits and guidance are there for fairness

and you may find your application pulled from consideration if you try to get around them.

IRB Announcement for iRIS Users: NEW! Incident Report Form, Effective Aug. 7, 2018:

The submission process for reporting Protocol Deviations and Unanticipated Problems (UP) is changing!

The IRB Office is rolling out a combined form called the HSC Incident Report Form.

Investigators should use this form beginning Tuesday, August 7th, when reporting deviations

and UPs to the IRB.

iRIS users must be careful, though! The previous forms for Protocol Deviations and UPs will still be

accessible in the list of submission forms.

These forms have been renamed to include ‘NC’ to indicate that they are now for the Norman

Campus only.

Please note that the IRB Office will not accept any Protocol Deviation Reports or UP Reports

after August 7th.  Events reported on these forms will be withdrawn and you will be asked to

use the new HSC Incident Report Form.

Please contact the IRB Office at IRB@ouhsc.edu or 405-271-2045 if you have any questions.
