Nucleating Workshops to Facilitate Team Science and Community Engagement

Phase I. Request for Suggestions 2016

The primary objective of the Nucleating Workshops is to develop and facilitate multidisciplinary team research collaborations targeting specific health topics identified by the community. In addition, workshops aim to involve a more diverse group of stakeholders, thus expanding team diversity. Members of the community, patients, as well as other appropriate participants (e.g. social workers, teachers, public health and teaching professionals etc.) are invited to participate. Multi-disciplinary teams will have the opportunity to apply for a CTSI Proposal Development Grant to develop and conduct a research project that is based on the selected topic of the Nucleating Workshop.

Phase II: Request for Proposals 2017

CTSI Proposal Development Grant Submission Opportunity

Building upon the successful completion of the Workshop, multi-disciplinary teams will have the opportunity to apply for a CTSI Proposal Development Grant (PDG). A Request for Proposals (RFP) for a PDG will be announced during the workshop. The RFP deadline will be within 6 weeks from the date of the workshop. Accepted proposal(s) will receive up to a $5,000 grant (Note: A detailed budget will be required). In order to facilitate progress of the PDG, a TRIAD Navigator will be assigned to the group as a condition of funding. NOTE: It is expected that successful proposals will subsequently lead to the submission of a CTSI or external grant submission within 6 months from the PDG award date.

Research Proposals

A description of a sound research project development plan and a budget detailing expenses must be provided. The research plan should be organized under the following sections:

  • Specific Aims
  • Background and Significance
  • Progress Report/Preliminary Studies
  • Research Design and Methods
  • *Plan for Data and Safety Monitoring
  • **Training in Responsible Conduct of Research
  • Literature Cited

Program Status:
Will be accepting proposals

Soliciting Proposals:
Proposals will be solicited four times yearly during workshops from stakeholders.

Proposal Submission Deadline:
April 26, 2017

*Plan for Data and Safety Monitoring

**Training in Responsible Conduct of Research

The proposals must include a brief description of a program to receive formal or informal instruction in scientific integrity or the responsible conduct of research. Proposals without plans for instruction in the responsible conduct of research will be considered incomplete. Candidates should consider instruction in the following areas: conflict of interest, responsible authorship, policies for handling misconduct, policies regarding the use of human and animal subjects, and data management. Document prior instruction in, and propose plans to receive, instruction in the responsible conduct of research in terms of subject matter and duration of instruction.

Note: There is a 4-page limit for the research proposal. Please use Arial with font no smaller than size 10. Margins should be at least ½ inch on all sides.
