  1. Research Update Vivian S. Lee, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A. Fall 2010

  2. Targeting 7.5% annual growth in NIH Awards to improve ranking Shared Goal: #25 in NIH Funding by 2015 ~$246M to be top-20 in FY20 Need ~$190M to be top-25 in FY15 +~$111 m +~$55 m Non-ARRA up 5%/yr since FY08 (+20%/yr w/ARRA) - ARRA to-date - Non ARRA See appendix for assumptions. Source: Shulman grant projection model; econometric principles and algorithms that drive the modeling are proprietary and there is a patent pending

  3. Our Goals • Advance scientific discovery and innovation and foster a highly collaborative model of interdisciplinary scientific investigation • Improve productivity and enable growth • Facilitate research through effective administration • Invest in training and career development • Stay at the cutting edge of enabling technologies and shared resources

  4. Faculty Recruitment • Science Strategy Committee • Review of all TT or tenured research faculty recruits • Ensures highest caliber • Enables better integration of new recruits into the community • Cross-departmental mentoring • Since 2007, • 76 recruits reviewed • 5 denied • 71 approved • 45 accepted • 20 declined • 6 pending • Strategic Areas • Cancer Institute • Musculoskeletal Institute • Neuroscience Institute • Cardiovascular Institute • Children’s Health • I3: immunology, inflammation, infection* • Public health and population sciences* • Other areas of focus • Diabetes, metabolism, and obesity • Genetics and epigenetics • Stem cells • Drug discovery • Imaging

  5. 11% of the T/TT Faculty have been recruited in past 3 years Profile of Tenure/Tenure Track Faculty 5 * Excludes 2 T/TT assistant professors recruited between FY08 and FY10 who have left the organization

  6. Most Recruited Faculty Meet or Exceed Grant Salary Coverage Plan 46 of the T/TT faculty recruited between FY08 and FY10 had expected or actual salary coverage on grants. Of these, 32 are at or above targeted grant salary coverage levels. Number of FY08 – FY10 Recruits by Grant Salary Coverage Variance For Grant Salary Coverage To-Date 6

  7. Senior Recruits Meet or Exceed Average NIH Awardsfor Their Rank While it is too early to judge the success of T/TT recruits at the Assistant level, those at the Associate and Professor level are performing well in terms of awards generated Annual Awards per T/TT Faculty Member by Level ($ 000s) 7 *Note that only 6 of 42 Assistant level recruits have been here 3 full years and only half have been here 2 full years, so comparison to the entire cadre of assistant professors, many of whom are much further along in their careers, is setting an unrealistically high bar

  28. CTSI News… The CTSI Translational Research/Novel TechnologiesProgram awarded 20 Pilot Projects (T1-T3) totaling $770k. A new RFA for CTSI Pilot Projects was issued 9/1/10. The CTSI Translational Research Education and Careers (TREC)Core awarded: -6 TL1 trainees and 4 KL2 scholars (one CTSI KL2 scholar recently received a K23 grant). The Translational Research-in-Progress (TRIP) seminar (sponsored by the Department of Medicine and the CTSI) provides a forum for presentation of work-in-progress by Basic/Clinical and Translational scientists The Community Engagement and Population Health Research (CEPHR) Core and the Value and Comparative Effectiveness Core (DGIM) are partnering on a number of grants in health services research The CTSI Governance, Study Design & Biostatistics, and Bioinformatics Cores developed the CTSI Protocol Studios to offer investigators an opportunity to have protocols and manuscripts reviewed and critiqued by an expert faculty panel. The Best Practices Integrative Informatics Consultation Service(BPIC) of the CTSI Bioinformatics Core has performed ~100 formal consultations since October 2009, and is instrumental in developing the federated data warehouse proposal, and in implementing the Find-A-Researcher 2.0 prototype: Open Office Hours every week The CTSI Clinical Research Center (former GCRC) maintains >90 active studies and anticipates two dozen new inpatient and 20 outpatient studies this year

  29. Our Goals • Advance scientific discovery and innovation and foster a highly collaborative model of interdisciplinary scientific investigation • Improve productivity and enable growth • Facilitate research through effective administration • Invest in training and career development • Stay at the cutting edge of enabling technologies and shared resources

  30. Understanding the pressures: Productivity and Growth • Academic medical centers are businesses with unique missions • The aim of research administration is to provide a rich environment for the conduct of great research and to shield PIs as much as possible from the business side of the business • The reputation of an academic medical center depends heavily on research: • Major programs and institutes with critical mass • Recruit outstanding faculty • Improved and expanded space • Core facilities and technologies • To persuade the Board to invest in research, we must make excellent use of our resources • Improve productivity of some faculty • Improve effectiveness of our support services, reduce duplication (IT, finance etc) • Use space more efficiently • We need to validate the investments in research to our Board through the quality of the science, impact of discovery and innovation, and through improved grant and technology transfer revenue

  31. Faculty Productivity • AEC salary coverage minimum for 2010-11 = 60% • New incentive/rewards for well-funded investigators • Emphasis on salary coverage significantly exceeding AEC targets • Emphasis on multiple NIH grants • Emphasis on NIH PPG/Center grants

  32. Overall, our NIH activity is highly reliant on a small number of highly productive faculty… Profile of Top-50 Faculty in terms of NIH Successes FY08 – FY10 Of NIH Successes (lifetime value of awarded grants) Of NIH Proposal Value Of Active NIH Submitters 32 Note: Includes 13 faculty members who are holders of active “mega grants” valued at >$5 million each

  33. Better performers convert a higher ratio of proposals to successes (35) (35) (34) (36) (35) (35) (34) (36) (84) (84) Among 140 Baseline T/TT faculty with NIH Successes (excludes those with active “mega-grants” & recent recruits) Among 140 Baseline T/TT faculty with NIH Successes (excludes those with active “mega-grants” & recent recruits) 33

  34. Yet even our most productive faculty are not at full capacity ~ $20 - $30 million additional “capacity” in our already successful faculty (or 2 R01s with $375K each) 34

  35. Our Facilities also appear to be below full capacity ~ $30 million additional “capacity” in our current research space 35

  36. Space: Relocations Increasing space efficiency Relocating approx 70,000 SF research space in Rusk, Tisch, Perelman (total 185,000 SF) To manage relocations and growth: Most laboratories that have no funding have been asked to close Each major administrative/space unit should be expected to “contribute” space for relocations (faculty, cores, etc) Relocating their Rusk/Perelman/Tisch faculty into their existing space House core facilities Other relocations as needed With relocation “duty” fulfilled, departments are recruiting Think about “dry space” recruits

  37. New Space New research space, partly for relocation, mostly for growth Verizon (available 2010-2011): Dry space ERSP (available 2012): Wet bench Varick Street (available 2011): Wet and Dry space New building…

  38. New Building! New research building: 300,000 SF Architect selected Occupancy by end 2014 Neuroscience and i3

  39. Space Policy and Management Space Policy drafted, to be rolled out in coming months Space survey currently underway NIH indirect rate negotiation New space management software New Space Management Advisory Committee

  40. Understanding the pressures: Productivity and Growth • Academic medical centers are businesses with unique missions • The aim of research administration is to provide a rich environment for the conduct of great research and to shield PIs as much as possible from the business side of the business • The reputation of an academic medical center depends heavily on research: • Major programs and institutes with critical mass • Recruit outstanding faculty • Improved and expanded space • Core facilities and technologies • To persuade the Board to invest in research, we must make excellent use of our resources • Improve productivity of some faculty • Improve effectiveness of our support services, reduce duplication (IT, finance etc) • Use space more efficiently • We need to validate the investments in research to our Board through the quality of the science, impact of discovery and innovation, and through improved grant and technology transfer revenue
