2. Charles H. Hood Foundation 2023 Major Grants Initiative to Advance Child Health

Preliminary applications are now being accepted by the Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) for the Charles H. Hood Foundation 2023 Major Grants Initiative to Advance Child Health research award. 

What are they?
The Charles H. Hood Foundation 202 Major Grants Initiative to Advance Child Health supports outstanding investigators conducting innovative and transformative research in child health. This Award Program supports outstanding senior investigators conducting innovative and transformative research in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. The overall goal of the program remains the funding of translational or clinical research that will improve child health clinical outcomes, or improve health care access, affordability, and quality. 

The Major Grants Initiative is a component of the Hood Foundation’s research funding portfolio. Since 1942, the Foundation has supported investigators at New England research institutions to improve the health and quality of life for children. The Hood Foundation Child Health Research Awards Program has launched the careers of 645 junior faculty whose discoveries have contributed to significant improvements in child health. Since 1989, the Foundation has also supported 49 Postdoctoral Fellows conducting projects spanning the continuum from basic laboratory research to clinical and health services research. Since the inauguration of the Major Grant program in 2014, 15 senior investigators have received over $6,450,000 in research support. 

MGH is eligible to nominate one candidate. 

When is the deadline?
MGH Internal Preliminary Application Deadline: Monday, April 11, 2022 - 5:00 p.m.

3. Anne Klibanski Visiting Scholars Award

Applications are now being accepted by the Center for Faculty Development for the Anne Klibanski Visiting Scholars Award 2022-2023. 

Despite extensive work to improve gender equity in academic medicine, women continue to lag behind men in promotions and leadership positions. This inequity has intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic which disproportionately affected women who were tasked with taking on increased childcare and household responsibilities and/or the care of ailing relatives. Because of COVID-19-related restrictions, many Grand Rounds and Visiting Professorships are being conducted virtually. This change provided an opportunity to promote the participation of more women in Visiting Professorships by removing the barriers that often prevent women from traveling. 

The Center for Faculty Development’s Anne Klibanski Visiting Scholars Award will be presented to women faculty clinicians, educators, researchers and women postdocs at MGH, who have shown exceptional promise as leaders in their field and whose careers would specifically benefit from speaking, mentoring and networking opportunities at the national or international level. This award will provide an opportunity to serve as a “virtual” Visiting Professor to give Grand Rounds at a national or international institution, organized by the Center for Faculty Development. 

The application deadline is Monday, May 16, at 11:59 pm. To learn more and apply, click here.

7. T32 Postdoctoral Program to Enrich Translation and Multimodal Research in Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia (PET/MR in ADRD) - T32 AG066592

The primary mission of this program is to promote the development of a diverse, translational research workforce that is capable of participating and/or leading cross-disciplinary team science relevant for the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and AD-related dementias. The trainee will pursue a targeted research project under the mentorship of world-class researchers in the Harvard research community in three key areas:
[1] biology of aging and neurodegeneration;
[2] data sciences, computational biology, statistics, math/engineering/physics;
[3] drug discovery and development 

Most T32 faculty are within the MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging and/or Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. Training includes targeted coursework, didactic lectures, and a dedicated T32 lecture series. General training includes research conduct, diversity and inclusion, mentoring, career development, and grant development activities. 

Eligibility: PhD, MD, MD/PhD and U.S. citizen or permanent resident (see NIH PAR-18-524), with rolling admission for 4 training slots. Our goal is to recruit a truly diverse T32 trainee pool that is highly representative of URM and women trainees.

8. MGH Screening Technologies in Primary Care Innovation Fund (PCIF)

There is great promise for the development of new technologies to detect disease or disease risk factors at an earlier stage in the primary care setting. However, innovative screening technologies are frequently difficult to get off the ground due to challenges conducting research in the primary care setting and difficulties translating and commercializing technologies that need to be implemented in a cost-effective manner and on a large scale. 

Thanks to philanthropic support from a generous family and the combined effort of the Department of Medicine and the Tearney Lab at MGH, a new primary care effort focused on translating technology to detect disease or disease risk factors at an earlier, more treatable or preventable stage has been created. To populate this technology pipeline, we have initiated a pilot funding program to support proof-of-concept projects that advance promising new primary care screening technologies. This program will not only identify new investigators with great ideas but will also provide them with the mentoring and support that are so critical to the successful realization of innovative ideas. 

We therefore invite applications for pilot grant funding from MGH investigators who are conducting research developing or validating primary care screening technologies. 

Awards:
One pilot grant will be funded for one year at $50,000 (direct costs). 

Application Guidelines:
1. Principal Investigator’s NIH formatted biosketch
2. Three-page proposal including:
a. Project title with contact information for the Principal Investigator
b. Abstract (200 words)
c. Description of project, including background, significance, and research plan
d. Budget allocation
3. One letter of support 

Key Dates:

  • Due date for proposals is April 15, 2022 
  • Proposals will be reviewed by an internal committee with expertise on primary care screening technology development, clinical translation, and commercialization. 
  • Funding will begin on June 1, 2022 

Submission Instructions:

  • Please prepare the application as a single, merged PDF and submit to PCIF@mgh.harvard.edu • 
  • Please address all inquiries to The Primary Care Innovation Fund Committee 
  •  Please direct any questions to Rhea Werner at rwerner@mgh.harvard.edu 
 
9. NIH Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research

Fostering diversity in the scientific research workforce is a key component of the NIH strategy to identify, develop, support and maintain the quality of our scientific human capital NOT-OD-20-031

This administrative supplement is designed to provide support for research experiences for individuals from diverse backgrounds throughout the continuum from high school to the faculty level. Continuation of this program in the future will depend on the evaluation of the career outcomes of the supported individuals as well as continuing assessments of the diversity of the scientific workforce.
