  6. Selected recent achievements • 2003 • $16M for vaccine research (R Ahmed) • $12M for emerging infections and bio-defense • $10M + $7.6M for prostate metastasis study (L Chung, J Simons) • $7M for alcohol link to acute respiratory distress syndrome (M Moss) • 2004 • Chris Larsen “Roche Basic Science Award” by Amer. Soc. Transplantation • $4.9M to develop drugs for depression (C. Nemeroff) • 2005 • Top 10 “best work environment for postdocs” – The Scientist • $25M for cancer nanotechnology (S Nie) • $11.5M for cardiovascular nanomedicine (G Bao) • $9M for small molecule discovery (R Dingledine) • $7.4M for Alzheimer’s Center (A. Levey) • $525M received for sale of 3TC (D. Liotta, R. Schinazi)

  7. Selectedrecentachievements 2006 • $7.5M to WCI Lung Cancer Research • $10M to Emory’s Transplant Center, Vaccine Center, and Yerkes for development of new vaccine strategies • 42 SOM investigators now have $1M+ in NIH awards • Vision 2012 – two new research buildings proposed • 1523 Clifton Road • As part of the new Medical Research Complex

  8. Strategic Plans for Research

  9. 2003 Strategic Plan for Research • Goal • Accelerate our progress towards top-tier status as a medical research enterprise • Mechanisms • Grow space, infrastructure and investigators • Promote translational & team science

  10. Strategic Plan for Research: 2008 goals • Culture • Improve integration of research and clinical missions • People • Increase the number of NIH funded investigators by ~100 • Attend to retention as well as recruitment • Increase # grad students from 322 to ~500, MD/PhDs from 8% to 12% of entering class, and postdocs from 420 to 630 • Programs • Build new research space (550,000 gsf) • Build team science research from 18 to 25% of NIH income • Increase investment in enabling technologies & research cores

  11. Seven Research Areas for Emphasis • Cancer • Neurosciences • Immunity and Host Defense • Cardiovascular and Epithelial Biology • Regenerative, Transplantation and Reparative Medicine • Integrative Medicine and Health Services Research • Molecular Structure and Interactions

  12. Plan of Action for NIH RFA for Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) The purpose of this initiative is to forge a uniquely transformative, novel and integrative academic home for clinical and translational science.

  13. CTSA It should: 1. Captivate, advance and nurture a cadre of well-trained multi- and inter-disciplinary investigators and research teams. 2. Create an incubator for innovative research tools. 3. Synergize multi- and inter-disciplinary clinical and translational research.

  14. CTSA • U54 Cooperative Agreement Mechanism • Application Due January 2007 • $6 million/yr. for 5 years total costs • 8 awards made in 2006 • NIH plans to award up to 60 awards by 2010-2012

  15. Research Resources • Clinical Trial Office (Peter Block) • GCRC (Arlene Chapman) • Research core facilities • Microchemical and proteomics • BIMCORE • DNA sequencing • Flow cytometry • Microscopy • Animal imaging • Biomedical imaging technology MRI center • PET center • Transgenic mouse • Human tissue procurement & banking • Human embryonic stem cell

  16. Additional SOM CORE FACILITIES • Animal Imaging • BIMCORE • Biomedical Imaging Technology Center • DNA Sequencing • Flow cytometry • Human Tissue Procurement & Banking • Microchemical & Proteomics • Microscopy • MRI Center • Positron Emission Tomography Center • Transgenic Mouse & Gene-Targeting

  17. NEW CHALLENGES • NIH FUNDING • Budget growth shrinking • 90% of grant applications not funded • 1% across-the-board cut on all discretionary spending translating into a $286M reduction in NIH spending

  18. NEW CHALLENGES • Grants.gov • Electronic Submission system not ready • SR424 very different than PHS398 • Change from % effort to # of person months • No internal electronic routing system (yet) • Earlier internal submission deadlines required

  19. GRANT POINTERS • Submit your grant to multiple funding agencies, such as NIH, VA, AHA, others • Write your grant at least a month in advance of the deadline • Have people who know the field read it • Have people NOT in the field read it • Do not submit just to submit – it is better to get it right (or close) than to get triaged
