ORA Research News - Monday, January 20, 2020

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:

2020 College of Medicine Alumni Association (COMAA) Call for Proposals

COMAA Call for proposals: Proposals are being accepted from full time faculty of the College of Medicine for grants

to be awarded from the College of Medicine Alumni Association with proceeds generated from the Evening of

Excellence dinner fund.  COMAA awards are intended to be an important resource for funding basic and clinical

research projects of new and early stage investigators in the College of Medicine. Guidelines are attached. 

The College of Medicine Research Fund was created with the proceeds from the first Evening of Excellence

Alumni Research Dinner over 30 years ago.  To date over $3.3 Million has been awarded. Successful applicants

will be designated “College of Medicine Alumni Research Scholars.”  Applications will be reviewed by a scientific

panel whose composition will be determined on the types of applications received.  Awards generally fall within

the $20,000 to $45,000 range ($45,000 maximum request).  Applications should be sent electronically to the mailbox: 

COMAA-Research@ouhsc.edu by 5 pm on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.  All applications must be routed through

the Office of Research Administration and include the NIH face page (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/fp1.pdf)

The IDeA program managed by NIGMS is pleased to announce the 2020 co-funding opportunity for

investigators in IDeA-eligible states whose R01 or R15 applications scored well but fall just outside

of an IC’s funding range. The IDeA program provides a maximum of $320K in total costs for each of the

first two consecutive years of a selected award. Nominations are made by the NIH IC that has the primary

assignment for the application. PIs wishing to be considered for IDeA co-funding should contact directly the

program officer at the IC assigned to the application.

IDeA co-funding is conducted once per year, and the nomination period will close in early April. Final

selections will be made in June of 2020. Please visit

NCI calls your attention to a pair of published “Early K99/R00” Funding Opportunity Announcements,

RFA-CA-20-014  and RFA-CA-20-015  The NCI Pathway to Independence Award for Outstanding

Early Stage Postdoctoral Researchers. An Informational Webinar is scheduled for Wednesday,

January 8th, 2020, from 1 – 3 pm EST for potential applicants and their mentors, business officials, and

heads of graduate programs. All potential applicants from the Stephenson Cancer Center/OUHSC/

OU Norman should attend the webinar.   Letters of Intent are due January 26, 2020; applications

are due February 26, 2020. Please share the attached flier and Webinar Invitation.  

The NCI Early K99/R00 program is designed to suit the career paths of postdoctoral fellows pursuing

careers in Data Science and Cancer Control Science, who typically require only a short period of mentored

research training beyond their doctoral degrees before obtaining independent faculty positions. Postdoctoral

fellows in other areas of NCI-supported research are encouraged to apply to the NIH Parent K99/R00

program (PA-19-129 and PA-19-130 ).

The Early K99/R00 differs from the NIH Parent K99/R00 program in that:

  • Applicants may have no more than 2 years of postdoctoral research experience by the

             application due date (February 26, 2020);

  • A nomination letter is required;
  • Preliminary data are NOT required; and
  • Institutions may submit a combined total of up to three applications per due date, inclusive of both
  • RFAs: one for Data Science, one for Cancer Control Science, and/or one for “Other Sciences” as
  • defined in Section III, Part 3 of the RFAs. An application should be submitted to the appropriate
  • RFA (Clinical Trials Required or Clinical Trials Not Allowed).
