2. Non-Standard Windows Computer Light Management Pilot

A pilot is underway to improve the computing experience for institutionally purchased non-standard Windows devices used for business purposes and to assure productive, stable and secure computers. This pilot evaluates an integrated solution for managing non-standard Windows computers used for work at Mass General Brigham with the ability to inventory, encrypt, apply device policies, and deploy applications. This solution will allow customers a quicker way to setup a computer for work, install enterprise apps, and maintain compliance with security requirements.

"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."

5. 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.

What are they?
Interim Support Funding
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.

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?
