new investigators or those new to grant writing. We will also touch upon ways to present evidence

that an applicant has been responsive to the areas that NIH deems important to enhancing rigor

and reproducibility, the corresponding NIH recommendations for the format of the research plan,

and the three key questions that reviewers are asked to consider when reviewing grant applications.

The Graduate College is now receiving applications for the 2019 Summer Undergraduate

Research Programs at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.  There are four

separate programs: the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE), the Native

American Research Centers for Health (NARCH), The Oklahoma IDeA Network of Biomedical

Research Excellence (OK-INBRE), and the Cancer Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE)

Summer Programs. Again this year, approximately 60 students will be hosted in labs on the OUHSC

campus and across the OK-INBRE network. All participants will receive valuable research experience,

be given the chance to present their summer projects at a poster competition, and receive a generous

stipend.  The deadline to apply is February 5th, 2019.

The online application and additional information about these programs are on the SURP website, below.



OK-INBRE Research Project Investigator (RPI) Program

Proposal deadline: February 22, 2019

Call for proposals:

The Oklahoma IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (OK-INBRE) is requesting

applications for Research Project Investigator Awards (RPI).  The program seeks to support

proposals designed to generate preliminary data that enhances the competitiveness of the OUHSC/

OMRF investigators for future extramural funding.  The proposed project must align with one of the

biomedical research themes of the OK-INBRE program: Cancer, Developmental Biology or Infectious

Diseases.  The RPI project period is 2 ½ years in duration funded at $100,000 in direct costs per year. 

Selected projects will commence in May 2019.



ORAU-Directed Research and Development (ODRD) Program

The FY 2019 competition for collaborative awards of up to $75,000 to be shared between the

university and ORAU researchers is now open. We anticipate and expect that these seed funds

will position the collaborative teams to be more competitive for new, external funding opportunities.

The deadline for joint ORAU/university proposals is March 25, 2019 and potential university partners

are encouraged to submit concepts for discussion with ORAU partners as soon as possible.
