The Department of Urology
in the School of Medicine at Johns Hopkins is beginning the process
of renewing its Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) Grant
in Prostate Cancer. The SPORE research team under the expert direction
of Dr. William G. Nelson is pursuing a submission date of January 2012,
and is inviting ideas for full projects, pilot projects and career development
components from relevant departments throughout Hopkins so that they
may be included in this submission. All SPORE grants require that each
of the projects must be translatable to clinical samples or investigation
within the five-year time period of support. The SPORE research team
encourages new and innovative ideas!
The internal review
process will include the submission of an initial one-page document
or pre-proposal summary that should outline the hypothesis, propose
specific aims and preliminary data available or anticipated to be available
by the submission date. Those individuals who submit a pre-proposal
summary may be invited to give a short presentation of their project
to the prostate cancer investigators. The composition of the SPORE submission
will come from these special meetings.
Those interested in
this special research program should submit the one-page pre-proposal
summary to Ms. Mary Buedel at email@example.com
no later than Monday, June 6, 2011. If you have any questions,
please contact Ms. Buedel.
INTERNAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE:
Friday, July 8, 2011

a confirmation of receipt of their materials within 48 hours. If you

Selected candidates will be notified as soon as possible. Completed

The School of Medicine announces the second annual
Discovery Fund in Honor of Dr. Michel Mirowski and his wife Anna for
Cardiovascular Research. The purpose of this award (up to $75,000) is
to catalyze innovative ideas that are high risk and ordinarily would
not be funded by NIH until sufficient preliminary data are gathered.
In this regard, we are accepting applications for the Mirowski Award
with a deadline of September 1, 2011. Winners will be announced
on October 1, 2011.
Applications should contain sections including:
Title, Investigator (departmental and divisional affiliation), Abstract,
Specific Aims, Innovation and Impact, brief Experimental Plan, Statement
on possible future competitive Funding and five References. Applications
over a total of 3 pages (single-spaced Arial font size 11) will not
be reviewed. An NIH Biosketch should accompany the application. All
documents should be assembled into a single PDF file.
Please submit your application to Karen Falter by September 1 at email@example.com.
