Wednesday, April 27, 2022, 12:00 – 1:00 pm, Zoom 

Extracting value from inventions requires many transactions, a key one of which is licensing of intellectual property to outside entities. This may include established companies (private or public) or MGB spinouts, including ones our innovators start themselves! These agreements also play an integral part in royalties received by inventors and the institution. Understanding the key components of licensing will help you to position your ideas and inventions for efficient translation and value return.

Join us for Mass General Brigham Innovation Grand Rounds - a monthly live system-wide forum for innovation education and discussion, for this session! 

Rebecca Listfield, PhD, is the Managing Director of Licensing at Mass General Brigham Innovation. In her role, Rebecca has responsibility for leading the Licensing team in the commercialization of technology developed by clinicians and researchers at Mass General Brigham.

2. Breast Cancer Alliance – Young Investigator Grants

Internal applications are now being accepted by the Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) for the Breast Cancer Alliance Young Investigator Grant. 

What are they?
"The mission of the Breast Cancer Alliance (BCA) is to improve survival rates and quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer through better prevention, early detection, treatment and cure. To promote these goals, the BCA invests in innovative research, breast surgery fellowships, regional education, dignified support and screening for the underserved. To encourage a commitment to breast cancer research, the sponsor invites clinical doctors and research scientists whose primary focus is breast cancer research, and who are in the early stages of their career, to apply for funding for the Young Investigator Grant. This grant is intended to help advance the careers of young researchers who do not yet have their own major grant support but who design and conduct their own independent research projects.” MGH is eligible to nominate two candidates. 

How much is the award?
The grant provides salary support and project costs for a total of $125,000 (distributed over the two-year period.) Indirect costs, which are included in the $125,000 award, must be limited to 8% of total direct costs. For MGH investigators selected through a competitive process as the institutional nominee for any limited submission funding opportunities, in situations in which the grant will bring in less than 15% indirect cost (IDC), ECOR will cover the IDC gap up to a maximum of $50,000 per year. In order to optimize the distribution of limited ECOR funds across the MGH research community, it is expected that PIs and departments will work together to cover the remaining IDC shortfall. 

When is the deadline?

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.

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
