Federal Websites that will satisfy the Revised Common Rule’s requirement to post
clinical trial consent forms (45 CFR 46.116(h)) - The U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS) and 16 other federal departments and agencies are announcing where clinical trial
consent forms can be posted, as will be required by the revised Common Rule. No obligations to
post such consent forms apply before January 21, 2019.
The revised Common Rule requires that for any clinical trial conducted or supported by a Common
Rule department or agency, one consent form be posted on a publicly available federal website
within a specific time frame. The consent form must have been used in enrolling participants in
order to satisfy this new provision. You can read more information about the revised Common Rule
on the OHRP website (https://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/education-and-outreach/revised-common-rule/index.html).
At this time, two publicly available federal websites that will satisfy the consent form posting requirement,
as required by the revised Common Rule, have been identified: ClinicalTrials.gov and a docket folder on
Regulations.gov (Docket ID: HHS-OPHS-2018-0021). HHS and other Common Rule departments and
agencies are developing instructions and other materials providing more information to the regulated
community about this posting requirement.
Additional federal websites that would satisfy the revised Common Rule’s clinical trial consent form
posting requirement might be identified in the future.

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS – Funding to complete the Master of Science
degree in Clinical and Translational Sciences
Now seeking applications for the NIMHD-funded research training and career development program.
The goal of the program is to facilitate the education of participants from diverse backgrounds under-
represented in biomedical research to pursue clinical research or population health research on
diseases that disproportionately impact minority and rural populations in Oklahoma.
The program provides two years of partial salary and research support to complete the Master of
Science degree in Clinical and Translational Sciences (MS in CTS) that is administered through the
OUHSC Graduate College. To be eligible, applicants must hold a clinical doctoral degree or PhD, be
from a group underrepresented in biomedical research (racial and ethnic groups that have been
shown by the National Science Foundation to be underrepresented in biomedical research or individuals
with disabilities), be within seven years of their first faculty appointment, AND plan to pursue a research
career focused on minority health or health disparities research. The 2-year program covers 50%
protected time (salary+fringe), tuition and fees for the MS in CTS degree program, travel to professional
meetings, and modest research funds. Applications are due 10/15/18.
Program and eligibility information is attached. Application materials can be found at:
For additional information, please contact Julie Stoner, PhD (email@example.com).

END2CANCER: Emerging Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery Applications for Cancer
Dates: December 6-7, 2018
Location: Samis Education Center
Registration and Call for Abstracts: http://end2cancer.com/
Summary: The END2CANCER conference will start the morning of December 6th, 2018 and conclude
in the afternoon of December 7th, 2018. The conference will bridge laboratory research conducted in
the areas of nanotechnology and drug delivery to clinical application for the detection, diagnosis, imaging
and treatment of cancer. The conference will host keynote, plenary and invited lectures by eminent
scientists who will discuss new and emerging concepts, technologies and challenges in translating
nanomedicine from bench-to-bedside.
Topics to be discussed in the planned thematic sessions include barriers in drug delivery, discovery
and applications, biological and non-biological systems as carriers and therapeutics, molecular imaging,
biomimetics, immune-oncology, toxicology and clinical trials.
The multi-disciplinary two-day conference will bring together physicians, basic scientists, engineers,
physicists, chemists, post-doctoral fellows, high-school and college students, patient advocates, business
professionals, educators and technology transfer specialists. Students and fellows will have an opportunity
to present their work as a poster presentation and compete for awards.
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
