Getting Your Word Out According to NIH grant-writing gurus Drs. Stephen Russell and David Morrison, “more [grant] applications fail because of poor packaging and presentation of the proposed research than because of flawed science.” A proposal that is not “on target,” well prepared, and easily understood is more difficult for reviewers to read and assess. This can impact its success. Kathy Gage, our Research Development Associate, is here to ensure that your grant applications are not overlooked because of “poor packaging and presentation.” She teams up with investigators to help them submit proposals that are clearly written and will capture the interest of the reviewers. Kathy’s formal training is in biology and chemistry, so she also keeps her eye on the science to anticipate any unanswered questions and to make sure that it flows logically. In addition, she provides these services to researchers who are preparing peer-reviewed publications, abstracts, and posters. For more information, you can email Kathy at kathy.gage@duke.edu or give her a call at 684-0876.

ANESTHESIOLOGY NEWS

DREAM Innovation Grant (DIG) Grant Overview The DREAM Innovation Grant (DIG) supports innovative high-risk, and potentially high-reward investigations to accelerate anesthesia and pain management research. Research deemed innovative may introduce a new paradigm, challenge current paradigms, look at existing problems from new perspectives, or exhibit other uniquely creative qualities. The DIG promotes new ideas; therefore, proposals need not include preliminary data. However, a solid rationale for the work must be provided. Proposed work should not be the next logical step of previous work, but should have a high probability of revealing new avenues of investigation. This program aims to provide pilot funding that will lead to successful competition for additional funding beyond the pilot period. The research concept, scientific team, and explicit plans for how this work will lead to follow-on funding will be the primary criteria for judging. These points should be specifically addressed in the application. The principal investigator (PI) is responsible for clearly and explicitly articulating the project’s innovation and the potential impact on anesthesia and pain management research. Eligibility: Faculty level appointment with in the Department of Anesthesiology One of the grants will be reserved to support a beginning scientist (within 5 years of completion of residency or fellowship) by encouraging and adequately funding projects that can contribute to bridging the gap between training and progression to independent investigator status. The other award(s) will be used as a seed grant to help investigators with promising science obtain preliminary data to support follow-on funding applications. http://anesthesiology.duke.edu

Funding A maximum of $30,000 will be awarded to each recipient. None of the funds awarded are to pay for faculty salary or overhead expenses. The number of grant recipients and grant amount will be determined by the DREAM Innovation Grant Committee after all applications have been received. Application and Deadline Applications and questions should be submitted to David S. Warner, M.D. at david.warner@duke.edu. A Statement of Intent (Deadline July 16, 2012): a. Abstract (150 word max) b. Budget (Budgets should not include salary support for a faculty, resident, or fellow) c. NIH formatted Biosketch for PI 2. NIH R03-like Application Format (Hard Deadline September 7, 2012): i.e., up to 1 page for Specific Aims and up to 6 pages for the research plan (background, preliminary data and/or rationale, experimental plan, description of roles of scientific team members, timeline for milestones and completion, and definition of plans to advance work beyond this funding interval). All pages are to be single-spaced in 11 point Arial font. Appendices will not be considered. Final applications must be submitted in a pdf format and include the final abstract, budget, biosketches of key personnel, specific aims, and research plan. 3. Winners will be announced October 14, 2012 during the ASA Alumni Reception.
