Attention: NSF DMR changes to unsolicited proposal submissions

Dear Materials Research Community,

The NSF Division of Materials Research (DMR) is now issuing solicitations for “unsolicited” proposals (i.e. research proposals based on the communities’ best ideas and aligned with DMR’s mission) to our core programs or Topical Materials Research Programs (TMRPs).  The TMRP synopses have been updated to better inform the materials research community about the type of research TMRPs support and the solicitations provide specific guidance for proposal preparation and submission.

DMR supports research that promotes fundamental materials research to advance materials discovery through prediction, design, synthesis and understanding of materials and materials phenomena through eight TMRPs:

Biomaterials (BMAT)

Ceramics (CER)

Condensed Matter and Materials Theory (CMMT)

Condensed Matter Physics (CMP)

Electronic and Photonic Materials (EPM)

Metals and Metallic Nanostructures (MMN)

Polymers (POL)

Solid State and Materials Chemistry (SSMC)

Previously, individual investigators and small teams submitted research proposals to the TMRPs once a year between September 1 and October 31 following only the guidelines of the Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG).  Starting in 2016 and continuing going forward, the CER and CMMT programs introduced separate solicitations having additional specifications and open proposal submission windows with no deadlines (see solicitations NSF 16-597 and NSF 16-596, respectively).

In addition, starting in 2017 and going forward the other six TMRPs (BMAT, CMP, EPM, MMN, POL, and SSMC) also require submission through a solicitation, but with a proposal deadline each year of November 1 (see solicitation NSF 17-580).

If you have any questions about these changes, please contact the cognizant Program Directors as indicated in the solicitations.

Sincerely,

INCLUDE THE EVER-IMPORTANT “WORK PLAN” IN YOUR NEXT PROPOSAL

What exactly is a “Work Plan” or “Statement of Work”? How specific should it be? Do you really need one if you are doing basic research? These questions and more are answered in the July 2017 Research Development and Grant Writing News. Mike Cronan wrote a great article about a common shortfall of many proposals. He writes,
“The inspiration for this article is the number of proposals we see that lack an explicit plan to implement the strategy or approach described. Instead, there is considerable discussion of the central idea, method, or strategy for achieving a goal or overcoming a challenge, but no discussion of what specific activities will be undertaken to implement that idea, method, or strategy. While some funders may explicitly require a “Statement of Work” or “Work Plan,” most funders expect proposals to provide sufficient detail on how the PI or team will actually implement the proposed ideas, methods, or strategies.” Continue reading this great article on our RD Toolkit.

As always, we are here to help you with your proposal!

4 Questions For Researchers and Institutions Involved In Human Subjects Research

Posted on August 11, 2017 by Mike Lauer

Last September, and in January of this year, we wrote about a suite of initiatives aimed at improving the quality and transparency of the NIH-supported research that most directly engages human participants – clinical trials. These initiatives include dedicated funding … Continue reading →

 

Fiscal Policy and Salary Cap Guidance for 2017

Now that the NIH fiscal year 2017 budget is signed into law, NIH published its final fiscal policy and salary cap guidance for this year. In general, NIH will restore reductions to non-competing continuation awards made this year while we were operating under a pending budget (continuing resolution).  Additional details on fiscal operations, including specific funding strategies for ICs and any exceptions, …. Continue reading →

Next Generation Researcher Policy Announcement – Coming Soon

August 30: NIH Webinar on Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs)…Test your Knowledge!

Did you know there are three types of Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs) that are associated with an NIH grant award? Can you name them? If you said “Annual, Interim, & Final RPPRs”…way to go! What does each one include? How and when do you submit each? What changes have been made in 2017 and what are still to come? On Wednesday, August 30, from 2:00-3:30 ET, NIH experts are planning to answer these questions, along with sharing the latest updates on RPPR policies and process updates. This webinar is designed for principal investigators, signing officials, and delegated officials responsible for the development and submission of progress reports to the NIH.  Registration is now open …. Continue reading →


Message to NIH grant applicants/awardees, contractors, researchers and research administrators:

If you are conducting NIH-funded research that involves human subjects, or are considering applying to NIH for support of such research, we want to call your attention to important changes that may affect how you:

  • select the right NIH funding opportunity announcement
  • write the research strategy and human subjects sections of your application
  • comply with appropriate policies and regulations

First, familiarize yourself with the new PHS Human Subject and Clinical Trial Information form. For application due dates of January 25, 2018, and beyond, you will be required to use an updated application forms package (FORMS-E), which includes the new human subject and clinical trial form. This form requests human subject and clinical trials information at the study level using discrete form fields, which is a change from current practice. Contract proposals will also require this information. Learn about the new form here.

Second, take a moment to answer these four questions about your current or proposed research:

1) Does the study involve human participants?

2) Are the participants prospectively assigned to an intervention?

3) Is the study designed to evaluate the effect of the intervention on the participants?

4) Is the effect that will be evaluated a health-related biomedical or behavioral outcome?

If the answer to all four questions is yes, then your proposed research meets the NIH definition of a clinical trial. Clarified and broadened in 2014, the definition encompasses a wide range of trial types: mechanistic, exploratory/developmental, pilot/feasibility, behavioral, and more. NIH expanded the clinical trial definition in response to widespread calls from diverse stakeholders for improved reporting of research milestones and outcomes, and for assuring maximal transparency.

Need help determining whether your study would be considered by NIH to be a clinical trial? See our webpage on the definition that includes case studies, FAQs and other resources that can help. Still unsure?  Contact your NIH program official or the scientific point of contact listed on the funding opportunity announcement to which you are applying.

Third, familiarize yourself with NIH policy changes related to enhancing stewardship of clinical trials.

NIH made a number of policy changes to improve the stewardship of clinical trials across the life cycle of the trial. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with all that is changing, including:

  • the requirement to apply to an FOA that specifically allows for the submission of clinical trial applications for due dates beginning January 25, 2018.
  • Good Clinical Practice training expectations for NIH staff, grantees, and contractors that went into effect January 2017.
  • updated peer review criteria that will be included in FOAs for clinical trial applications and solicitations for due dates on/after January 25, 2018.
  • new Human Subject Information form requirements for clinical trials that will be included in updated application forms (FORMS-E) for due dates on/after January 25, 2018, and contract solicitations published as of January 25, 2018.
  • use of a single IRB for non-exempt, multi-site clinical trials for application due dates on/after January 25, 2018.
  • expanded ClinicalTrials.gov registration and reporting to include all NIH supported clinical trials.

Improving the design, efficiency, and transparency of clinical trials is important because it:

  • respects our ethical obligation to participants to maximize the use of the knowledge from the trials in which they participate
  • facilitates design of clinical trials while reducing unnecessary duplication
  • promotes broad, timely, and responsible dissemination of research information and results
  • fosters responsible stewardship of the public’s investment in biomedical research

 

We have developed a new Clinical Trial Requirements for NIH Grantees and Contractors web page to bring together all the information you need to know.  Please review this information carefully.  Your attention to detail will be critical to ensuring successful funding of your clinical trial awards.

We will be putting out a series of reminder policy notices, training opportunities, and other resources in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts, in the NIH Extramural Nexus, and on my blog.

The success of clinical trials relies on the public trust in scientific rigor and ethical oversight.  We all play a critical role in this process.  We are most grateful to you for your help and support.

 

Best,
