UPDATE! Don’t miss out! ORA/GCA/Purchasing Workshop
Ever wondered who we are and what we do?
Ever needed help with a grant submission?
Not quite sure how to support your faculty with their grants and contracts?
Are you struggling with a human subjects section of your proposal?
Are budget and compliance questions keeping you from your real job?
Finally the moment you’ve been waiting for….
We are pleased to announce a joint workshop, “The OUHSC World of Grants & Contracts” for
faculty and staff. This workshop will offer a one-day training on sponsored research topics.
The sessions are the same for both days, just different times. The information will be provided
in a variety of formats ranging from talks to breakout sessions with experts sitting at tables
eager to answer all your questions.
WHEN: January 8 and 10, 2019

**SAVE THE DATES: REVISED COMMON RULE TOWN HALLS
Revised regulations for research involving human subjects will go into effect on January 21, 2019.
Join the HRPP Office for town halls discussing the implementation of the Revised Common Rule
at OUHSC. There are currently 3 town halls planned. Content will be the same at each session,
so choose the one that fits your schedule best.
See attached Revised Common Rule Town Hall flyer for dates & times or visit the HRPP website:
Videoconference to Tulsa will be available.
**iRIS GOING OFFLINE PRIOR TO REVISED COMMON RULE IMPLEMENTATION
REMINDER: A freeze on new human research applications has been in place since December 20, 2018.
The IRB will continue to review pending new research applications (submitted prior to Dec. 20th)
through January 15, 2019.
iRIS will go offline from January 16, 2019 – January 21, 2019 for updates.
iRIS will go back online on January 22, 2019 and will be open to accept all submission types.

COMAA DEADLINE – Deadline April 1, 2019. For additional information please see the

Resources for Rigorous Research
Mike Lauer, MD, NIH Deputy Director for Extramural Research, describes new resources provided
by the NIH to facilitate rigorous research in an Open Mike blog post. A revamped Rigor and
Reproducibility Webpage has been updated with new policies and new resources, none of which
have new requirements or forms. Additionally, past confusion about the meaning of “scientific
premise” in grant applications inspired the NIH to replace this term with “rigor of the prior research”
under the Significance section of most research grant and career development award applications
for applications due on and after January 25, 2019.
Oklahoma Center for Adult Stem Cell Research (OCASCR)
EXPANSION OF AREA OF FUNDING - Call for Applications – Due January 18, 2019
OCASCR has expanded the applications it will accept for funding to include, in addition to adult
stem cell research projects, research in regenerative medicine - a field that is closely related to
adult stem cell biology and that strives to restore the normal functions of cells, tissues, and organs
that have been damaged by disease. For applications focused on regenerative medicine, those
projects related to diseases caused by smoking or obesity (i.e. cancer, cardiovascular disease,
diabetes, etc.) will be prioritized. Additional information on this Call for Applications and links to
grant application forms and instructions can be found at: http://www.ocascr.org/grants/.
Call for Applications: 2019-2020 Awards Supported by the San Antonio Nathan
The San Antonio Nathan Shock Center is soliciting applications to support the research of any
investigator who is developing a new project in the basic biology of aging. Applications are
accepted from investigators at any US academic institution. Junior investigators are
encouraged to apply. We can consider applications from any investigator who is eligible to
receive NIH grants according to the rules of their home institution. The projects should utilize
one or more Cores of the Center. Projects that propose creative uses of more than one Core
are encouraged. Awards will be made for the next budget year (July 1 2019 to June 30 2020).
Funds will be allocated for Core services. Only under very unusual circumstances and careful
justification will we consider awarding funds directly to the PI’s lab. Applications are due
January 15, 2019. For additional information go to:
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:
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.
No new Notices from NIH for this Newsletter
Please Note: When only one application is allowed per Institution according to the sponsor
instructions, a one-page letter of intent summarizing the proposed project should be submitted
to the Vice President for Research at least one month prior to the application deadline (unless
otherwise noted). The letters of intent will be reviewed and a single application will be chosen
for submission from the University.
