"Picture a Scientist, an official selection of the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival, chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries - including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists - who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all."

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

November 3 | November 10 | November 17 | December 1 | December 15
Zoom

Sponsored by the MGH Division of Clinical Research, Partners Human Research Committee and Partners Human Research 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 Teresa La with questions.

The Interim Support Funding (ISF) Program is open to Principal Investigators during a lapse or delay in their research funding from the NIH or another Federal agency (e.g., the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense).  Investigators must have applied for independent, long-term support (R01, R21, U01 and P01). The intent of the program is to rescue strong scientific programs that are in need of bridge funding in order to sustain their research. Applications will be accepted regardless of percentile or score, including applications that were not discussed. Financial need and the impact of the COVID pandemic will be taken into account. Please note that Formulaic Bridge Funding Support will not be offered until further notice.

When is the deadline?

3. MGH Research Scholars 2021

Applications are now being accepted by the Mass General Research Institute (MGRI) for the MGH Research Scholars program

What is it?
The MGH Research Scholars program was established with the aim of supporting MGH research faculty who are pursuing research at the level of Assistant and Associate Professor.  The intent of these awards is to support the careers of outstanding MGH investigators doing cutting-edge research that is highly innovative and expected to result in fundamental scientific discoveries and/or clinical applications. MGH Research Scholar grants are awarded by the Mass General Research Institute (MGRI). Applicants will be asked to choose one of three categories based on their area of research: clinical research, fundamental research, or population and healthcare research.

How much is each award?
These awards are for $500,000 over 5 years; and will be funded at $100,000 per year, including 15% indirect costs.

When is the deadline?
Monday, November 9, 2020 – 5:00 PM

4. The MGH Claflin Distinguished Scholar Awards

For Junior Faculty Women Investigators

Applications are now being accepted by the Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) for the
Claflin Distinguished Scholar Awards!

What are the Claflin Awards?
Although women scientists are recruited to Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) programs, their advancement to senior faculty positions is still far less frequent than that of their male counterparts.  In 1993, The Women in Academic Medicine Committee, originally chaired by Mrs. Jane D. Claflin, Honorary Trustee, was established to facilitate the academic careers of women in science at MGH.  Recognizing that a significant obstacle to career advancement is the difficulty of maintaining research productivity during the child-rearing years, this Committee, with the sponsorship of the Executive Committee on Research (ECOR), established the Claflin Distinguished Scholar Awards.  It is intended that this funding will increase opportunities for women to advance to senior positions in academic medicine.

How much is each award?
These are two year awards for $50,000 per year in direct costs, plus 15% for indirect costs.

When is the deadline?
Tuesday, December 8, 2020 - 5:00 PM

How do I learn more and apply?

Please click here to enroll in the Claflin Consultation Initiative by Thursday, October 29th.

 
5. The Moore Inventor Fellows 2021

A program of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation

Pre-proposals are now being accepted by the Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) for the Moore Inventor Fellows

What are they?
Gordon Moore’s contribution to the development of microelectronics helped produce the exponential growth of the digital revolution. In the spirit of Moore’s passion for science and penchant for inventing, the foundation seeks to support people who create new tools, technologies, processes, or approaches with a high potential to accelerate progress in the foundation’s three main areas of interest: scientific research, environmental conservation and patient care.

MGH is eligible to nominate a maximum of two (2) candidates.

Who should apply?
Full time postdocs or junior faculty who are no more than 10 years past receiving the terminal advanced degree in their field (MS, PhD, or MD)

How much is each award?
The award is $200,000 per year for three years. In addition, the foundation will provide the host institution with $25,000 each year to cover costs associated with administering the grant award.

The mentor and or department/unit will be required to contribute $50,000 in annual direct support of the inventor’s work. Each fellow must devote at least 25 percent of their time to their invention.

This funding opportunity is not exempt from the 15% indirect cost (IDC) floor minimum. However, ECOR policy states that "for MGH investigators selected through a competitive process as the institutional nominee for the Moore Inventor Fellows 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.
