INBRE II 2012 Minigrant Proposal FAQs

Body: 
2012 DSU INBRE II Mini-grant Competition   FAQs   Can the PI for the minigrant be the PI of a current INBRE grant? Can visiting faculty members apply for a mini-grant? Can I collaborate with a faculty member from the same department if their research is in a different area from me? Can the faculty members be outside of the College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology (CMNST) and apply for a mini-grant? If the PI is from CMNST, can the collaborating faculty member be from a different college? Can a faculty member from a different institution serve as the collaborating faculty member? Can minigrant funds be used for summer salary for faculty? How much should we budget for the project? What if the curriculum project is very small? Do we have to ask for $50,000? How long do we have to spend the money? For what semesters will the PI get the release time? Does the proposal have to be approved by the Office of Sponsored Programs?     Can the PI for the minigrant be the PI of a current INBRE grant? Yes, current or former INBRE PIs are eligible to be PIs for a mini-grant, but the proposed project must not overlap with the INBRe-supported project. Top   Can visiting faculty members apply for a mini-grant? No, only tenured or tenure-track faculty are eligible to be PIs of a mini-grnt. A visiting faculty member may be a participant in a mini-grant project, but cannot be the PI. Top   Can I collaborate with a faculty member from the same department if their research is in a different area from  me? No, the mini-grants are intended to build collaborations across departments, so each mini-grant is required to be a collaboration of faculty members from at least 2 different departments. Top   Can the faculty members be outside of the College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology (CMNST) and apply for a mini-grant? Yes, any tenured or tenure-track faculty member at DSU is eligible to be a PI. Top   If the PI is from CMNST, can the collaborating faculty member be from a different college? Yes, the collaborating faculty member can be from any department in the University. Top   Can a faculty member from a different institution serve as the collaborating faculty member? No, both the PI and the co-PI must be faculty members at Delaware State University. Top   Can minigrant funds be used for summer salary for faculty? Yes, summer salary for the PI or the co-PI are allowable costs. Top   How much should we budget for the project? You should budget for the costs you will need to implement the project, but no more than $50,000 will be awarded for each grant. Top   What if the curriculum project is very small? Do we have to ask for $50,000? No, smaller projects are welcome. If most of the projects have budgets significantly under $50,000, we will be able to fund more and that will increase the odds that you will be awarded the grant. Top   How long do we have to spend the money? The funds must be spent between May 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013. Top   For what semesters will the PI get the release time? Successful applicants will receive 25% release time in the fall semester of 2012. an additional semester of release time for spring 2013 my be granted if it is justified in the proposal. Top   Does the proposal have to be approved by the Office of Sponsored Programs? No, the proposal should be emailed directly to Ms. Vanessa Nesbit. Proposals must include a letter of support from the Department Chair committing to the release time. Top   Return to DSU INBRE homepage Return to the College homepage

Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program

Body: 
The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program is a subscription service providing research ethics education to all members of the research community. To participate fully, learners must be affiliated with Delaware State University. CITI Program offers The Basic and Refresher Courses in the Protection of Human Research Subjects. Biomedical research focus Social and behavioral research focus  The Good Clinical Practice and ICH Course. 15 module course for investigators conducting studies with investigational drugs and devices.  The Health Information Privacy and Security (HIPS) Course. The Course can be customized for: Clinicians Clinical investigators Students Fundraisers Marketers  Laboratory Animal Welfare Course And    The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Course Responsible Conduct of Research Training and Oversight Plan I. Statement of Intent – The National Science Foundation, in its Grantee Standards states: The responsible and ethical conduct of research (RCR) is critical for excellence, as well as public trust, in science and engineering. Consequently, education in RCR is considered essential in the preparation of future scientists and engineers. Section 7009 of the America Creating Opportunities to Meaningfully Promote Excellence in Technology, Education, and Science (COMPETES) Act (42 U.S.C. 1862o–1) requires that ‘‘each institution that applies for financial assistance from the [National Science] Foundation for science and engineering research or education describe in its grant proposal a plan to provide appropriate training and oversight in the responsible and ethical conduct of research to undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers participating in the proposed research project.”  1 a. All faculty, staff, students and volunteers working on NSF-supported research projects will be required to successfully complete the RCR training modules with a score of 80% or more before their employment contracts will be approved. Evidence of approval in the form of a CITI certificate will be required. II. Oversight a. The Office of Sponsored Programs will be responsible for oversight of the implementation of this plan and enforcing compliance with completion of the CITI RCR training modules before approving employment contracts on NSF-funded projects. b. All claims of research misconduct will be handled by the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, pursuant to the policy on Standards for the Conduct of Scholarly Research. The Office of Sponsored Programs will receive periodic reports from the training provider, CITI.  These reports will be maintained as official University records.   1National Science Foundation, Award Administration Standards effective January 1, 2010, Chapter VI.B., downloaded December 14, 2009 from http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/policydocs/pappguide/nsf10_1/aag_4.jsp.

McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Research Program Delaware Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) NSF-Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Center for Research and Education in Optical Sciences & Applications (CREOSA) Research and engineering Apprenticeship program (REAP)   DSU Second Summer Research Symposium was attended by more than 70 scholars and researchers from universities, colleges and high schools across the region. The participating research groups presented there research using many presentation styles from detail poster to oral presentations.   Research topics covered area from social sciences such as Autistic Children have High Incidence of Aggressive Behavior than Non-Autistic Children to the Study of Holographic Multiplexing and Phase-Conjugation using Photorefractive Potassium Niobate Crystals. Presenting ground breaking research by future Ph.Ds, under the guidance of some of the best research mentors anywhere.
