- Fellowship and Grant Proposal Writing in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop
September 11 2015 at 1:00 PM
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 firstname.lastname@example.org by September 5, 2015.
If you have questions about this workshop, please contact Sarah James at email@example.com.
- Nano@Wayne with L. James Lee, Ohio State University
September 15 2015 at 2:30 PM
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.
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.
- Write Winning Grant Proposals Seminar (Hypothesis-Driven Research)
November 13 2015 at 8:30 AM
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host a research grant writing proposal seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students. The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus.
The main campus seminar will take place November 13, 2015, from 8:30 AM to 5 PM in the Welcome Center Auditorium, 42 W. Warren, Main Campus.
The seminar is for hypothesis-driven research (medical, biological and physical sciences and engineering). Light morning refreshments and lunch will be served.
The seminar will address both conceptual and practical aspects that are associated with the grant-writing process. It will emphasize idea development, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that have kept the co-founders of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops funded continuously for over twenty-five years.
Each attendee will receive a copy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook. You will need to identify which workbook you need at the time of registration. Below is the list of available versions from which you can select.
The NIH Edition. Required for all submitting NIH proposals
The NSF Edition. Required for all submitting NSF proposals
Successful Proposals to Any Agency. USDA Edition with updated insert
The fee for seminar materials is $75 and may be paid for by personal check or through a department index account transfer. Payment or index information must be received prior to the seminar to reserve your spot.
Registration is limited!
Registration and required information must be completed by October 16, 2015.
