Have you ever wondered what clinical data resources exist at UCSF to support your research? Are you confused about what our data exploration tools can do or how to access them? Not sure about all of the options for storing, analyzing and sharing data sets? Want to know more about the process to gain approvals? If any of these questions apply to you, then don’t miss the UCSF Clinical Data Colloquium on May 10th!
With the release of the latest version of the NIH Grants Policy Statement – Nov. 2016, the NIH has changed their requirements for prior approval to issue fixed price subawards.
For a study supported by NIH that will generate large-scale genomic data or use large-scale genomic data from a NIH-designated data repository (dbGaP), the application should include a data sharing plan or plans for requesting data (see NOT-OD-15-083). If the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) requires UCSF IRB review and approval of the proposed Consent form to the proposed human subjects protocol contact the PIs assigned RSC as soon as possible. Further guidance provided on the OSR Website - GDS Policy page.
The NIH’s commitment to promoting rigorous and transparent research led to recent updates to research grant and career development award applications and progress reports guidelines. In the April 2016 Sponsored Research Newsletter, we provided guidance on the new instructions, including the four key areas of focus and links to NIH resources.
