Request for Applications: NU Collaboration Initiative
Update: If you are planning to submit a proposal as either a Principal Investigator (with UNO as the prime applicant) or a Co-Investigator (participating on the proposal with another NU campus as the lead), please follow these instructions:
2. ORCA staff will contact you regarding budget, compilation of proposal components, and internal submission and routing of approvals via MavGrants. We will contact you by November 29, 2017 about moving forward with your proposal. If you have any questions regarding participating in the Collaboration Initiative, please contact Dr. Sara Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Collaboration Initiative is designed to help University of Nebraska researchers become more competitive for extramural funding by helping foster meaningful collaborations that leverage the full intellectual capacity of faculty across the campuses.
This year’s Request for Applications (RFA) will solicit proposals from faculty teams that are studying extramurally fundable research question(s) using a broad multidisciplinary “systems” approach. Researchable topics will not be administratively pre-defined, but applications must be designed to position the team to submit a highly competitive extramural funding application immediately following the completion of their proposed work.
To be funding eligible, PIs must attend the Collaboration Initiative Retreat on Friday, November 3, 2017. Register for the retreat here.
Applications are due by 5PM (CST) on Friday, January 12, 2018.

IRB Education Series at UNMC
"Changes in Research Regulations" with Bruce Gordon, MD
Changes to the regulations in the protection of human subjects, 45 CFR 46, (also known as the Common Rule) will go into effect on January 19, 2018. These changes will have an impact of those investigators and research teams involved in the conduct of any research involving human subjects after that date. While some changes may be considered more burdensome, many of the upcoming changes remove regulatory burden for investigators, research teams and IRBs alike. Lunch will be provided and a livestream is available here for those unable to attend in person.
