AHRQ Announces New Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Pathway to Independence Award–Deadline to Submit is December 17, 2012

AHRQ is seeking applications for the new Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Pathway to Independence Award program.  The primary purpose of this program is to increase and maintain a strong cohort of new and talented AHRQ-supported independent investigators trained in comparative effectiveness methods to conduct patient care outcomes research.  The program is designed to facilitate a timely transition from a junior non-tenure track faculty or a postdoctoral research position (or their equivalents) to a stable independent research career.  It targets investigators early in their careers to support their development in new sophisticated methodological comparative effectiveness research skills, interdisciplinary perspectives, and capabilities in PCOR.   Deadline to submit an application is December 17.  Select to access the announcement.


Translational Scholar Career Awards in Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine (K23)--Expiration Date: January 8, 2014

Agency Name:  National Institutes of Health


Purpose:   The purpose of this Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award (K23) is to provide salary and protected time (up to five years for this award) to support the career development of investigators who have made a commitment to focus their research endeavors on patient-oriented research. Each Research Career Development Award must be tailored to meet the individual needs of the candidate. The Translational Scholar Awards in Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine program is intended to address the scarcity of investigators cross-trained in both clinical research core competencies and modern methods required to address pharmacogenomics research problems in patient populations. Dual mentors from the Clinical and Translational Science Awards consortium and the Pharmacogenomics Research Network are required. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Research Career Development Award K23 award mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. For this funding opportunity, the total amount to be awarded will be up to $1.5 M and the anticipated number of awards will be approximately six in FY2012. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the number, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.

 (star)Message from Kathryn Phillips regarding Grantsmanship Help:

 Dear faculty:

 I am continuing the grantsmanship mentoring program by offering opportunities for any faculty member to discuss grantsmanship issues on a one-time basis as part of our team’s monthly phonecon, held alternating Mondays and Thursdays/once a month, for 30-40 minutes (between 11-12:30).  Our group includes both senior and junior faculty and researchers. You could discuss proposal plans, issues in leadership or collaboration for grants you already work on, applying for the dept research resources fund, or anything related to grants that you’d like. Let me know if you’d like to be on the agenda for one of our upcoming meetings. Everyone who has done this has really found a group discussion helpful!  It’s a phone conference so it saves you travel time.




 (star)ESCape is the weekly Educational Scholarship Conference hosted by the Office of Medical Education, and is open to all members of UCSF.  Topics vary from week to week.  ESCape is a key way to get valuable peer review of educational ideas, methodologies, abstracts, manuscripts and proposals.  It also helps connect those looking for interprofessional collaborators.
