More About the LSP

Limited submission opportunities (LSOs) are extramural funding opportunities that either limit the number of applications UCSF may put forward to a given sponsor or require another kind of internal coordination (e.g., to eliminate unnecessary duplication of instrument requests).  The Limited Submission Program (LSP) is responsible for notifying the campus of these opportunities, coordinating the internal review and selection process, and notifying all applicants of outcomes.

Who Manages LSOs?
The Limited Submission Program (LSP) within the Research Development Office (RDO) manages all LSOs.  For more information, contact Gail Fisher, Manager, at 415/502-1807.

Governing Body
The LSP is governed by an Advisory Committee charged with establishing policies and procedures.  The Advisory Committee is sponsored by the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor & Provost.

  • Kathryn Lee, Chair, RN, PhD, FAAN, CBSM
  • Mark Anderson, MD, PhD
  • Jefferey Cox, PhD
  • Hana El-Samad, PhD
  • Michael Fischbach, PhD
  • Bo Huang, PhD
  • Ophir Klein, MD, PhD
  • Mike McCune, MD, PhD
  • Margaret Tempero, MD

Process

  • UCSF receives an invitation from a private foundation to submit nominees, a federal funding opportunity becomes available or the LSP receives notification of an LSO.
  • Under the direction of the Chair, Advisory Committee members are contacted in order to identify a Review Committee comprised of faculty best qualified in the specific area of the opportunity to review applications.
  • The opportunity is announced to the campus via the LSP listserv and applications are invited.  To subscribe to the LSP listserv, please contact Gail Fisher.  A list of all current LSOs is also maintained online.
  • All applications are due by 3pm on the internal due date, unless stated otherwise in the announcement.
  • Each application is reviewed and scored by at least two reviewers, and a nominee is invited to move forward with a full application.
  • The LSP coordinates with UCSF's Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations to provide editorial support for nominees to certain foundation opportunities.  Nominees are always notified if this support is available.
  • The LSP's involvement ends with results notification to all applicants.  PIs should check with department RMS teams to identify the date by which they need the full application prior to the sponsor application due date.
