Wednesday, May 18, 2022, 12:00 – 1:00 pm, Zoom 

Translating inventions from lab to successful commercial ventures is fraught with challenges, opaque processes, funding hurdles, and institutional conflict regulations to name a few. Jeff Karp, PhD, has successfully invented, patented, and spun out eight NewCos from his lab as a Scientific Founder, including an IPO. This is in addition to continuing to run his lab, mentor students, and achieve the status of Professor of Medicine. 

Join us for Mass General Brigham Innovation Grand Rounds, a monthly system-wide forum for innovation education and discussion, to learn about his experience, advice, and ask questions! 

John Hamilton, Senior IP Manager at Mass General Brigham Innovation, will join the session to provide a brief overview on navigating the patent landscape. 

Jeff Karp, PhD, is a Professor of Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. He is also a principal faculty member at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, and an affiliate faculty member at the Broad Institute and at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. He works in the fields of drug delivery, medical devices, stem cell therapeutics, and tissue adhesives.

7. Presentation Skills Series S1: “How to Punch-Up Your Presentation Like a Comedy Professional”

Wednesday, May 25, 2022, 12:00 – 1:00 pm, Zoom

Provided by: Mass General Brigham and MGH Center for Faculty Development 

Session 1 of the Presentation Skills Series 

Good comedy is unifying and even a small amount in an otherwise dry lecture can make it (and you!) significantly more engaging. Learn how to identify and take advantage of organic comedic opportunities in your presentations. We’ll cover the basic rules of comedy writing, including self-awareness, specificity, breaking patterns, rules of threes, joke structure, and why some words are funnier than others. The ultimate goal isn’t to force comedy or make every presentation hilarious, simply to add a bit of seasoning when and where it will be appreciated most. 

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: 

  • Explore how the addition of authentic humor helps presenters connect more efficiently to their audience. 
  • Identify common opportunities for humor in everyday presentations. 
  • Apply the basic rules of comedy writing to make the most of comedic opportunities, resulting in a more engaging and effective final product. 

Target Audience: This activity is intended for faculty and faculty trainees.
Course Director: Miriam A. Bredella, MD 

Presenter:
Beth Sherman is a 7-time Emmy Award-winning comedy writer. Her credits include Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, as well as MTV’s Video Music Awards, the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards and the Academy Awards (the Oscars.) Prior to that, she spent more than a decade doing stand-up comedy, performing at clubs, colleges, and military bases all over world, including Kuwait and Iraq.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
 
1. COVID Funding Opportunities

Please visit the MGB web page for COVID funding opportunities that provides a central database for researchers to view open and competitive funding announcements. 

We have aggregated opportunities from federal and private funding sources including NIH, DoD, CDC, EPA, foundations, and more. The database defaults to sorting by award amount and can also be sorted by deadline or filtered by research focus. 

Upcoming deadlines:

2. NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards

Preliminary applications are now being accepted by the Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) for the NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards. 

What are they?
“The NIH Director’s Early Independence Award Program supports exceptional investigators who wish to pursue independent research directly after completion of their terminal doctoral/research degree or clinical residency, thereby forgoing the traditional post-doctoral training period and accelerating their entry into an independent research career. The Early Independence Award is intended for these select junior investigators who have already established a record of scientific innovation and research productivity and have demonstrated unusual scientific vision and maturity; typical post-doctoral training would unnecessarily delay their entry into independent research.” 

MGH is eligible to nominate two candidates for the NIH Director’s Early Independence Award. 

When is the deadline?
MGH internal pre-proposal: Tuesday, June 28, 2022 – 5:00 PM

3. RECOVER Clinical Trials NIH Research Opportunity Announcement - OTA-21-015H

“This Research Opportunity Announcement (ROA) solicits applications proposing clinical trials in those over 18 years old in the prevention and/or treatment of Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC) as part of the NIH RECOVER initiative. 

This ROA is to solicit applications proposing clinical trials protocols to be finalized and executed rapidly in collaboration with the RECOVER CT-DCC for the identification of safe and effective treatments and preventive strategies for PASC in those over 18 years of age. A future ROA is anticipated for the solicitation of trials on safe and effective treatments in children. 

Applications should be emailed by May 19, 2022 to NHLBI_OTA@mail.nih.gov. A technical assistance webinar is tentatively scheduled for May 6th, 2022.”

4. 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.

 
5. Pilot & Feasibility Grants in Nutrition, Obesity, Metabolism

The Nutrition Obesity Research Center at Harvard (NORCH) is currently seeking applications for Pilot & Feasibility Grants related to nutrition, obesity, and metabolism. This award is up to $30,000 over 1 year, with possibility for up to $30,000 additional funding during year 2 via a competitive renewal if good progress is achieved. 

Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, June 1, 2022. 

The funding period will begin on August 1, 2022.
