Fellowship and Grant Proposal Writing in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop
September 11 2015 at 1:00 PM
5057 Woodward
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to a Fellowship and Grant Proposal Writing in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop on Friday, September 11, 2015, 1-3 PM in 5057 Woodward (corner of Woodward and Putnam), 6th floor, Conference Room A.During this session, we will be reviewing and providing feedback on participants’ draft proposals that will be provided to all participants in advance of the session. This is an invaluable way to improve your proposal before it goes to the external agency. Successful grant and fellowship proposals will be circulated to participants prior to the workshop to allow for prepared observations and questions to be discussed during this session; however, the main emphasis of this session will be to workshop for participants’ draft proposals. This workshop is led by Arthur F. Marotti, Distinguished Professor of English Emeritus at Wayne State University. Dr. Marotti is the recipient of research fellowships from The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (1975-76), The American Council of Learned Societies (1988-89), and The National Endowment for the Humanities (2000 and 2005-6). In addition, he has been co-Principal Investigator on two federal grants (2002-7, 2007-10) from the Department of Education to fund bilateral exchanges of students and faculty with Brazilian universities. This workshop is open to WSU faculty and is FREE. Registration is required by September 5, 2015. Materials to be read for the workshop will be emailed to participants in advance.  After registering, if you would like your grant proposal to be reviewed at this workshop, please send proposals to Sarah James at sjames@wayne.edu by September 5, 2015. If you have questions about this workshop, please contact Sarah James at sjames@wayne.edu.
Nano@Wayne with L. James Lee, Ohio State University
September 15 2015 at 2:30 PM
Welcome Center
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Nano@Wayne seminar on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. in the Welcome Center auditorium. The seminar is free and open to the public; registration is requested. The guest speaker will be Dr. L. James Lee, Helen C. Kurtz Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The Ohio State University. He will present, "Tethered Lipoplex Nanoparticle (TLN) Biochips for Extracellular Vesicles Based Early Cancer Diagnosis and Prognosis." Dr. Lee founded and serves as the Director of NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for Affordable Nanoengineering of Polymer Biomedical Devices (CANPBD) at OSU. His research interest includes BioMEMS/NEMS, micro-/nanofabrication, and polymer and composite materials. He has more than 350 refereed journal publications, 30 patents and patent applications, and 14 book chapters. Abstract: Cancers cause millions of deaths worldwide each year and the annual cancer related health care cost is more than $500 billion. Even with such heavy spending, mortality rates of many cancer types remain very high. For example, 5-year survival rate for lung cancer and pancreatic cancer is 15% and 6% respectively. In addition to developing new drugs and treatment methods, non-invasive early detection and prognosis methods provide great potential to reduce mortality rates of cancer. "Liquid biopsy" based on circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and extracellular vesicles (EVs) such as circulating microvesicles (MVs) or exosomes is currently the major focus of the field. Given their important role in regulating gene expression and recognizing that their dysfunction plays a critical role in human cancers, microRNAs (miRs) and messenger RNAs (mRNAs) have emerged as potential biomarkers for cancer detection. Here, we show that biochips using tethered lipoplex nanoparticles (TLNs) containing molecular beacons (MBs) can capture cell-derived EVs from body fluids such as blood and urine, and identify encapsulated RNA and EV surface membrane protein targets in a single step with minimal sample preparation (no need of exosome and total RNA collection) and sample size. A short reception will immediately follow Dr. Lee's presentation.
COS Pivot and WSU ResearchConnect Training
September 22 2015 at 2:30 PM
Undergraduate Library, David Adamany
WSU faculty, staff and students are invited to a hands-on demonstration to learn how to join and use COS Pivot and WSU ResearchConnect. Wayne State University subscribes to COS Pivot, the single most comprehensive source of funding information available. Whether your work is in the sciences or the arts, COS Pivot services can help support and advance your research. Much more efficient than Googling, the database is an aggregation of funding information that is verified for accuracy, updated for currency and formatted for quick, targeted searching. COS Pivot is available to all current WSU faculty, staff and students. Click on the links below to view COS Pivot handouts Getting StartedFinding ScholarsFinding Funding OpportunitiesYour COS PIVOT Home Page In an effort to promote and facilitate interdisciplinary research, Wayne State University is committed to using innovative research tools and information technologies to promote collaboration. ResearchConnect is one of these tools which provides a searchable database of expertise across most disciplines at WSU. Explore the profiles, publications, and grant data of hundreds of researchers within our university. Follow the network and collaborations within WSU, throughout the SciVal Experts Community, and across the national DIRECT and VIVO networks. The publications and grants listed for faculty members reflect their expertise in the unit(s) with which they are affiliated here at WSU or at prior institutions and offer a snapshot of their knowledge and interests. This training seminar will take place Tuesday, September 22, 2015, 2:30-4 PM at the Undergraduate Library, Computer Lab A.  This event is free, but space is limited, and registration is required!
