Upcoming event: NIH Regional Seminar in San Diego, Oct. 14-16

NIH-SeminarThe National Institutes of Health will present the final regional seminar of the year next month in San Diego.  Dozens of NIH officials will be on hand to share information and strategies on every aspect of sponsored biomedical research.  For those new to NIH research, a newly redesigned new investigator track will provide step-by-step guidance for career advancement.

There will also be opportunities for one-on-one meetings with program officers as well as the chance to network with colleagues from around the country.

Regular registration rates apply until Sept. 14, so make plans to attend soon.  More information and registration information is available on the NIH Office of Extramural Research website.

NIH approves cloud storage and analysis for genomic data

NIH_LogoThe Office of Extramural Funding at the National Institutes of Health has announced a policy change related to use of cloud computing resources for genomic data storage and analysis.

According to the announcement, investigators may now request permission to use public or private cloud computing resources for storage and analysis of genomic and other phenotypic data under the auspices of the NIH Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) Policy.

Applicants must describe the cloud computing resources they plan to use.  The resources must meet federal and institutional security and data use policies and institutions are responsible for any failure or security breach in cloud computing services.

Baylor professor receives NIH grant to study connection between early-life seizures and autism

Lugo

Dr. Joaquin Lugo, who recently received a grant from the NIH for his research project, “Signaling mechanisms underlying epilepsy and autism comorbidity.”

Dr. Joaquin Lugo, assistant professor of psychology and neuroscience in Baylor’s College of Arts and Sciences, recently received a grant from the National Institutes of Health for research aimed at understanding the link between early-life seizures and autism-like behavioral problems later in life.  The three-year, $415,500 grant was awarded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, one of the 27 institutes and centers that make up the NIH.

Children who suffer from epilepsy can carry a range of behavioral and mental problems into adolescence and adulthood, including changes in learning and memory, social difficulties and autism, Lugo says, but the mechanisms underlying these comorbidities is not fully understood.

To shed light on the relationship between these disorders, Lugo and his team will study the effect of seizures at different stages of development on later behavior in mice. They will also examine changes that seizures may cause in the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway – a neurological pathway involved in communication between neurons in the brain.

“We’re looking at the long-term effects of seizures that occur early in life to determine whether they contribute to autism on a molecular level,” Lugo says. “We know that molecular changes to the mTOR signaling pathway in the brain are associated with both epilepsy and autism, so this research will help to determine whether the processes may be related.”

In the longer term, Lugo hopes that understanding the role of the mTOR pathway in both epilepsy and autism could eventually lead to development of new treatments.

“This project is the first of many steps in a continuum of research that will systematically identify the autistic-like behavioral changes and alterations in the mTOR signaling pathway that occur after seizures,” he says. “Ultimately, the research could provide treatments for the behavioral and molecular alterations that occur in individuals with autism and epilepsy.”

Preliminary data for the proposal was gathered with funding from the Young Investigator Development Program, an internal research grant program that provides seed funding to help recently appointed, tenure-track faculty develop competitive proposals for external funding.

NIH, AHRQ announce new format for biographical sketches

NIH_LogoThe National Institutes of Health and the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality have announced a change to the required format for biographical sketches submitted with applications for research grant funding.

Changes in the new format include an increase in the page limit from four pages to five, as well as new fields that give investigators the opportunity to provide background information for their proposed project.  The new form allows investigators to highlight their most significant contributions to science, outline the historical context for their research and describe their roles in Team Science projects. Applicants may also support these descriptions with lists of publications or other research products.  The new biosketch format also allows a link to a full list of the applicant’s published work in a publicly available online database.

The revised forms and instructions are available on the SF 424 (R&R) Forms and Applications page.

Implementation date pushed back

The original announcement of the new biosketch requirements indicated that the new format would be required for applications submitted for due dates on or after Jan. 25, 2015. Following public comment, however, the NIH and AHRQ have provided flexibility by delaying full implementation of the new requirement. The agency now encourages applicants to use the new biosketch format, but will require the new format for applications submitted for due dates on or after May 25, 2015.
