IRB Seeking Recruits for Non-Scientific Community Members

The IRB is currently recruiting new members from the community to serve on a board.  Community members play an integral role on the IRB because they represent and advocate for volunteer research participants. Qualified candidates do not have an affiliation with the University and do not have a scientific background. Examples of non-scientific backgrounds include, but are not limited to: teachers, local clergy, retirees, social workers, and ethicists. Community members may be former research participants as well.

If you know someone who meets the above criteria and would be interested in serving on an IRB, please contact

Donna Hogan, HRPP Director, at 405-271-2045 or by email to donna-hogan@ouhsc.edu.

 

 

Save the Date - ORA Noon Conference

"Writing for Biomedical Publications"

12pm-1pm, LIB299 (Auditorium)

Communicating the results of your research is an important part of the research enterprise. This talk will cover how to write original articles and provide tools necessary to successfully write, submit, and publish a manuscript. It will introduce the purpose of each section of a research article, describe the recommended approach, and provide information about common mistakes in writing for biomedical publications.

 

 

Attention: State Contract Budget Planning

F&A (IDC) are real costs incurred by the department and the University in support of sponsored activities.  The funding derived from F&A provides critical dollars necessary to support the operating expenses related to the space in which the project is conducted, as well as the various services provided to the Principal Investigator and the college and department for administering the contract (e.g., accounting, purchasing, human resources). Without appropriate recovery of F&A costs, the University loses money and we must be fiscally responsible to our tax payers and students.  It is not responsible stewardship to waive these costs. Since this is the time of year when a lot of departments and faculty start their FY21 budget planning for their anticipated state contracts, we wanted to remind everyone that no F&A reduction or waiver requests will be approved this year.  As always, Please see this link for current F&A rates:
