The Office of Research & Engagement would like to encourage submissions to the National Institutes of Health Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) Program (R15). This is a special pool of funding available to institutions that have not received more than $6 million per year in NIH support in four of the last seven years. ORE would like to invite potential applicants to attend a webinar presented by the NIH Center for Scientific Review entitled “Meet the Experts in NIH Peer Review for AREA/R15 Award Applicants,” which will teach applicants how to navigate the NIH peer review system and submit a strong R15 application.
This presentation will describe recent changes to various aspects of NIH proposal preparation, reporting and other post-award processes. Please attend for an overview of the latest NIH updates as well as to learn how the Office of Sponsored Programs can assist faculty and staff in navigating the implementation of these new requirements. Presented by the UT Office of Sponsored Programs.
The Office of Research and Engagement is soliciting nominations for three awards celebrating distinct faculty groups: one for a multidisciplinary team, one for junior faculty, and one for tenured faculty. These awards will be presented at the Chancellor’s Honors Banquet on April 8, 2015.
If you know of a group or an individual who is deserving of such recognition, please submit a nomination for the following Chancellor’s Awards by January 23, 2015.
