Vanderbilt (VU + VUMC, collaboratively) has been invited to participate in the V Foundation 2022 Pediatric Cancer Research Grant Program.  Vanderbilt may choose one nominee for the Pediatric Cancer Research Grant Program. The single nominee may apply in either the V Scholar or the Translational program type for support.

Please review each award type below and submit internal proposals for either program by January 31. Note that this pediatric call is distinct from the V Foundation “all cancers” call for V Scholars and Translational awards (non-pediatric specific) which will have a separate invited call for applications when announced.

Pediatric Cancer Translational Research Award

The V Foundation seeks to support translational research projects within the scope of pediatric cancer research. The Translational Research Award is a $600,000 grant awarded in three annual installments of $200,000. Indirect costs up to a maximum of 10% within the total award are permitted.

Definition of a translational research project: Translational projects should move a novel strategy from the laboratory into a human clinical trial or use specimens from a clinical trial to develop biomarkers or mechanisms.  The research should apply in some direct way to human beings within the time frame of less than 3 years.  If biomarker research is undertaken, a validation set or independent clinical trial is essential.  A plan for biomarker validation, if applicable, must be included in any proposal. The endpoint of the project should be the planning or initiation of a new pediatric clinical trial.

Applicant Eligibility:  By March 10, 2022, applicants who will lead this research team must have all the following:

  • Be scientists who hold a tenure-track faculty position (any level) at their cancer research institution. Non-promotable, adjunct, affiliated, temporary, part-time or acting faculty positions are not eligible for Principal Investigator.
  • Applicants must be either US citizens or have a legal permit to work in the USA (either temporary or permanent).

Pediatric Cancer V Scholar Award

The Pediatric Cancer V Scholar Award supports young tenure-track faculty early in their cancer research career by funding projects that are either laboratory-based discovery research or translational research. The total amount of the grant is $200,000 awarded in two annual installments of $100,000, each. No indirect costs are permitted.

Special Focus Area: ANY area of pediatric cancer research that is focused on laboratory research that increases our understanding of cancer biology or translational research that improves cancer detection, prevention, treatment, and survivorship.  Applications proposing research to develop better tools and or methods for earlier detection of pediatric cancers are also welcome. Areas not included in this scope are epidemiology, behavioral science, and health services research.  

Applicant Eligibility: By March 10, 2022, applicants must meet all the following:

  • Hold a tenure-track faculty position as an assistant professor. Non-promotable, adjunct, affiliated, temporary, part-time or acting faculty positions are not eligible for the Scholar award.
  • Have been appointed to their first full-time assistant professor position within the last 5 years, and not yet been promoted to Associate Professor.
  • Clinical scientists are eligible if their Department can demonstrate that it will fully support the research applicant (e.g., dedicated lab space, start-up funds, dedicated research time).
  • Applicants must NOT already hold an R01 or R01-equivalent grant as a PI or co-leader. Applicants must NOT be a co-leader on projects such as SPORE or NIH grant mechanisms like U01, DP1, DP2, R37, and R23. The V Scholar award is intended to support research to leverage these larger awards; so, the nominee should not have already received such awards.
  • Applicant must have at least 2 years post-doctoral (MD or PhD) fellowship training. For MDs, a minimum of one year is acceptable if only one year is required for the specialty.
  • Applicant must be a US Citizen or permanent legal resident

NSF ADVANCE: Organizational Change for Gender Equity in STEM Academic Professions

Applications due February 10, 2022

Vanderbilt (VU + VUMC): This is a joint competition for VU and VUMC investigators. All investigators should follow these instructions.

The NSF ADVANCE program contributes to the National Science Foundation’s goal of a more diverse and capable science and engineering workforce. NSF ADVANCE seeks to build on prior NSF ADVANCE work and other research and literature concerning gender, racial, and ethnic equity. The NSF ADVANCE program goal is to broaden the implementation of evidence-based systemic change strategies that promote equity for STEM faculty in academic workplaces and the academic profession. The NSF ADVANCE program provides grants to enhance the systemic factors that support equity and inclusion and to mitigate the systemic factors that create inequities in the academic profession and workplaces. Systemic (or organizational) inequities may exist in areas such as policy and practice as well as in organizational culture and climate. For example, practices in academic departments that result in the inequitable allocation of service or teaching assignments may impede research productivity, delay advancement, and create a culture of differential treatment and rewards. Similarly, policies and procedures that do not mitigate implicit bias in hiring, tenure, and promotion decisions could lead to women and racial and ethnic minorities being evaluated less favorably, perpetuating historical under-participation in STEM academic careers and contributing to an academic climate that is not inclusive.

All NSF ADVANCE proposals are expected to use intersectional approaches in the design of systemic change strategies for STEM faculty in recognition that gender, race and ethnicity do not exist in isolation from each other and from other categories of social identity. The solicitation includes four funding tracks Institutional Transformation (IT)AdaptationPartnership, and Catalyst, in support of the NSF ADVANCE program goal to broaden the implementation of systemic strategies that promote equity for STEM faculty.

  • The Institutional Transformation (IT) track is designed to support the development, implementation, and evaluation of innovative systemic change strategies that promote gender equity for STEM faculty in academic workplaces within an institution of higher education.
  • The Adaptation track is designed to support the work to adapt, implement, and evaluate evidence-based systemic change strategies that have been shown to promote gender equity for STEM faculty in academic workplaces and the academic profession. Adaptation projects can either: 1) support the adaptation of evidence-based systemic change strategies to promote equity for STEM faculty within an institution of higher education; or 2) facilitate national or regional STEM disciplinary transformation by adapting evidence-based systemic change strategies to non-profit, non-academic organizations.
  • The Partnership track is designed to support the work to facilitate the broader adaptation of gender equity and systemic change strategies. Partnership projects are expected to result in national or regional transformation in STEM academic workplaces and the academic profession and demonstrate significant reach. Partnership projects can focus on the transformation of institutions and organizations and/or the transformation within one or more STEM disciplines.
  • The Catalyst track is designed to broaden the types of IHEs that are able to undertake data collection and institutional self-assessment work to identify systemic gender inequities impacting their STEM faculty so that these can be addressed by the institution.

Eligibility

Vanderbilt University may submit only one proposal to the IT-Preliminary, Adaptation, OR Catalyst track. If applying for the IT track, institutional leadership must be involved.

Vanderbilt University may be partners on multiple ADVANCE Partnership proposals in the same competition but can be the lead organization only on one Partnership proposal in the same competition.

Please note that NSF ADVANCE does not provide fellowships, research, or travel grants to individual students, postdoctoral researchers, or faculty to pursue STEM degrees or research.

Award Amounts

The total number of awards to be made under this solicitation is estimated to be between 18 and 36 over the two fiscal years of this solicitation.

In each year, NSF expects to make: approximately six Adaptation awards up to $1,000,000 for three years; six Partnership awards up to $1,000,000 for five year projects; and four Catalyst awards up to $300,000 for two years. IT awards may be for up to $3M over 5 years.

NSF anticipates that two to four of the twelve Adaptation and Partnerships projects may qualify for an additional $250,000 for collaborating with a project initiated with NSF funding as described in the project description.

See the solicitation for more information.

Internal Application Process

Interested faculty should visit InfoReady to submit an application for the internal LSO competition by 11:59 p.m. on February 10.

In addition, an annual $2,000 expense allowance is awarded to the laboratory in which the Fellow is working and can be used by the Fellow for their educational and scientific expenses. The Foundation also provides a Dependent Child Allowance of $1,000 per child per year. The award may not be used for institutional overhead or indirect costs.


National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Instrumentation Program (S10 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Letter of Intent due September 7

Please note that this is separate from the annual ORIP S10 Program that requires institutional coordination. Email amy.f.martinez@vumc.org with any questions.

The NIMH Instrumentation Program encourages applications from NIH funded investigators to purchase or upgrade a single commercially available instrument or to purchase a group of components to create an instrument that is not commercially available. The goal of the NIMH Instrumentation Program is to make such instruments available to either individual laboratories or core facilities that conduct mental health-related research. Examples of instruments that might be submitted under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) include light microscopes, electron microscopes, spectrophotometers, and biomedical imagers. 

Background

Modern mental health-related research can require expensive instruments that are often hard to obtain through traditional funding mechanisms. The goal of the NIMH Instrumentation Program is to make such instruments available to either individual laboratories or core facilities that conduct mental health-related research. These instruments can be commercial instruments or collections of components that others have already described how to assemble into a working instrument. Upgrades of existing instruments can also be requested.

Investigators can propose instruments that will be used by their laboratory or by a collection of investigators. Investigators who are proposing to provide the instrument only to members of their laboratory must state why the instrument cannot be shared. In either case, investigators are strongly encouraged to house the requested instrument in a core facility or other shared facility to ensure that the new instrument remains functional and available to the research community over its useful lifetime.

Research Objectives

Types of instruments that might be appropriate for the NIMH Instrumentation Program include light microscopes, electron microscopes, spectrophotometers, and biomedical imagers. This list is representative and not exhaustive. Foreign-made instruments are allowed. A single application cannot request multiple unrelated instruments. In such cases, multiple applications can be submitted.

The goal of this FOA is to provide instruments to collect data rather than components for further instrument/technology development. Instrument development applications should be submitted to other FOAs on which NIMH participates or to appropriate BRAIN Initiative FOAs.

Non-Responsive Applications

The NIMH Instrumentation Program will not support requests for:

  • Purely instructional equipment
  • Instruments used for billable clinical care
  • Institutional administrative management systems
  • Stand-alone computer systems or software (Computers and software that are a component of an instrument, for example for an MRI console are responsive. An application containing only a stand alone computer systems or software is not responsive.)
  • General purpose equipment, an assortment of instruments to furnish a research facility, or equipment for routine sustaining infrastructure (such as autoclaves, hoods, cages for animal facilities, standard machine shop equipment)
  • Equipment or components that are part of an effort to develop new instruments rather than to collect data
  • Multiple unrelated instruments or components. Note: in such cases, multiple applications can be submitted.

Award Budget

 

Applications will be accepted with an award budget between $200,000 and $600,000. There is no maximum limit on the cost of the instrument, but the maximum award is $600,000. S10 awards are only for the cost of the instrument, so indirect costs cannot be requested.
