ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
1. Energy Conservation Freezer Program

We recently received some additional funding from the hospital energy conservation program to support the purchase of energy-efficient freezers. If you wish to replace a working non-energy-efficient freezer with a new energy-efficient one, you will be eligible for up to a $3,000 rebate. To be considered for the rebate, you must be able to provide your current freezer inventory and be able to trade-in a working non-energy efficient freezer.

Because funding is limited, we may have to hold a lottery if requests exceed available funding. If you are interested in participating, please email rsmgcore@partners.org by Monday, May 3rd with the name of the PI lab along with the location of the freezer you wish to replace.  

 
2. Cambridge Science Festival

The Mass General Research Institute is proud to partner once again with the Cambridge Science Festival, a month-long virtual celebration showcasing the leading edge in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). A big thank you to the Saxena lab, Dunn lab, Emotion and Social Neuroscience lab and the Martinos Center for helping create a wonderful set of activities and resources for children and families. Be sure to check out the full showcase on Bench Press!

 
3. Abstract Submission for the 2021 MGH Nursing Research Day

15. Good Clinical Practice in Research at an Academic Research Institution

Thursdays, May 27, June 3, June 10, June 17, June 24, 2:00 – 4:30 PM, Zoom

Sponsored by the MGH Division of Clinical Research, Partners Human Research Committee and Partners Human Subjects Quality Improvement Program

Good clinical practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for designing, conducting, recording and reporting human subjects’ research. GCP guidelines define the roles and responsibilities of the IRB, investigator, and sponsor as well as describe the essential documents needed for the conduct of a study. Compliance with GCP assures that the rights, safety, and welfare of subjects are protected and that the data produced from the research are credible.
After completing this training, the learner will have a comprehensive understanding of GCP and be able to apply those practices to the conduct of clinical research.

Note: To receive a certificate of completion a participant must attend all 5 sessions and successfully pass a post-course assessment through RedCap. RCR Eligibility: Completion of all five sessions of this course will fulfill two lecture/discussion requirements.

Registration is required. Please contact Amy Quinkert with questions.

3. PCORI Funding Opportunity: Pragmatic Clinical Studies (PCS) to Evaluate Patient-Centered Outcomes – Cycle 2 2021

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) has announced funding for Pragmatic Clinical Studies to Evaluate Patient-Centered Outcomes. This PCORI Funding Announcement (PFA) emphasizes relevant Methodology Standards and the PCORI Guidance on the Design and Conduct of Trials in Real-World Settings.

A total of $90 million in funding is available through this PFA. Investigators may request up to $10 million in direct costs for a clinical trial lasting up to five years.

We've put together resources on how to apply, constructing a successful LOI, and assistance with your applications, including contact information on our website.

For questions about PCORI or the application process, you may also contact Leslie MacGregor, PhD, VMD, JD, Harvard Catalyst PCORI funding specialist.

Key Dates:

  • PFA opens: May 4, 2021

  • Town Hall webinar: May 21, 2021 from 11:30am – 1:00pm ET

  • Letters of Intent (LOI) due: June 1, 2021, by 5:00pm ET

  • Full applications due: August 31, 2021, by 5:00pm ET

Please note that this opportunity will be repeated once more in 2021. Cycle 3 opens September 7 (deadline October 5).

PCORI seeks to fund clinical trials, large simple trials, or large-scale observational studies that compare two or more alternatives for addressing prevention, diagnosis, treatment, or management of a disease or symptom; improving healthcare system-level approaches to managing care; or eliminating health or healthcare disparities. Randomized study designs are strongly encouraged but not required.
 
Proposed studies must address critical clinical choices faced by patients, their caregivers, clinicians, or delivery systems. They must involve broadly representative patient populations and be large enough to provide precise estimates of hypothesized effectiveness differences and to support evaluation of potential differences in treatment effectiveness in patient subgroups.

About PCORI
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) was authorized by Congress in 2010 as a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization. PCORI’s purpose, as defined by its authorizing legislation, is to help patients, caregivers, clinicians, policy makers, and other healthcare system stakeholders make better-informed health decisions by “advancing the quality and relevance of evidence about how to prevent, diagnose, treat, monitor, and manage diseases, disorders, and other health conditions” and by promoting the dissemination and uptake of this evidence.

 
4. Limited Submission Funding Opportunities

We ask that all MGH Investigators interested in applying for any limited submission award submit a Letter of Intent (see detailed instructions below) to the MGH Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) by the deadline indicated for each award to be considered to receive an institutional nomination.

Process            
Submit a one- to two-page Letter of Intent (LOI) to the MGH Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) via email to ecor@partners.org.  In addition to your LOI, please include an NIH Biosketch.

The letter of intent should include:
