10. A Practical Guide to Leveraging the Mass General Brigham Biobank for Genetic and Biomarker Research

Monday, November 16, 2:00-5:00pm, Via Zoom

Recent years have seen the rise of precision medicine as an organizing framework for biomedical research. Mass General Brigham has emerged as a leader in this new paradigm, facilitated in part by the availability of the Mass General Brigham (MGB) Biobank. With more than 120,000 participants enrolled and broad clinical data, biospecimens, and genomic data, the MGB Biobank offers a powerful resource for basic, clinical/translational, omics, and biomarker research.
The MGH Division of Clinical Research is sponsoring a mini-course focused on how investigators may leverage the MGB Biobank for genetic and biomarker research. Distinguished MGB faculty will provide an overview of the Biobank resource and examples of how investigators have used the biobank for discovery and biomarker research.

The Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) is now accepting applications for Interim Support Funding. 

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.

When is the deadline?
December 1, 2020 - 5:00 PM

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.

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

5. Massachusetts Life Sciences Center Research Infrastructure Program

The MLSC Research Infrastructure Program, formerly known as the Open or Competitive Capital Program, is designed to provide grants for capital projects that support the life sciences ecosystem in Massachusetts by enabling and supporting life sciences research and development in the Commonwealth.

Up to $10 million in capital dollars is available to support capital projects ranging from $1.5-5M across the state for not-for-profit partners.
