WSU External Funding Exceeds $30 Million in 1997-98 Fiscal Year

For the second year in a row, Wright State University faculty and staff exceeded the $30 million mark in the quest for funding for externally sponsored projects. Figures from the 1997-98 fiscal year are indicative of the level of dedication and hard work shown by the WSU community in garnering support for research endeavors. Awards made to WSU through June 1998 amounted to $30,283,100, just shy of the previous fiscal year's record-breaking effort.

External Funding 1989-1998 Bar Graph.

In total dollars, federal sponsors top the list with $15.5 million in awards, although industry sponsors provided $9 million in funding, with the greatest number of awards (149 of a total of 462). State agencies are big supporters of WSU's efforts, to the tune of $9.3 million or 31% of the dollar volume. Rounding out the list of sponsors, by category, are other educational institutions (3%), non-profits (3%), and other government agencies (3%).

Pie Chart.

Congratulations to WSU grantwriters and all recipients of external funding for your continued outstanding work! For a list of awards for the period, May 1 through August 31, 1998, please see below.

Please visit the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs in 122 Allyn or view our Web site at http:/www.wright.edu/rsp/ to learn more about the many ways we can assist you in the pursuit of external funding. Among the numerous services we offer are funding opportunities searches, proposal development and preparation (including budgets), copying and transmission of applications to the sponsor, institutional compliance oversight, contract negotiations, post-award administration, coordination of internally funded programs, technology transfer, and government security.

We look forward to working with you in the coming year!


Notes from the Director

I should like to extend a warm "Welcome!" to new faculty and an equally warm "Welcome Back!" to those returning from their summer haunts. Although we are beginning a new academic year, the university fiscal year is already into its fourth month and so far it looks like we are off to a great start with respect to proposals and awards to support faculty research, training, and public service activities. Keep up the good work!

As I enter my third year as Director, I continue to be on the lookout for ways to make the RSP office function more efficiently. As you will see elsewhere in this issue, on the post-award side we will be reviewing only significant charges to ledger 6 accounts (over $1000). In the pre-award area we are moving steadily toward using electronic vs. hard-copy procedures wherever it makes sense. The National Science Foundation's FastLane allows us to submit proposals and reports via the web and we have been receiving award notices via e-mail from NSF for awhile now. The National Institutes of Health will soon be sending award notices via e-mail and we are already signed up for that. A small step in the direction of campus-wide electronic proposal processing was recently introduced on our web page: http://www.wright.edu/rsp/, where you can now fill in a short form on-line if you want to let RSP staff know about proposal planning. And in what we call the "compliance" areas (human subjects, lab animals, biohazards), I will be assuming the duties of IRB Coordinator in order to allow Glen Jones to concentrate exclusively on post-award administration.

Beaker graphic.

Another hat that I wear relates to managing the "technology transfer" function at Wright State. In other words, when a member of the university community makes or conceives of an invention, a description of the invention is submitted to RSP and then we try to find businesses or start-up companies willing to license the technology and commercialize it. If there are any royalty payments down the road, the net income can either be put into an account to support the inventor's further research or 50% of it can be given directly to the inventor. This can be a substantial source of revenue for both the university and inventors, as evidenced by the fact that last year's royalty income totaled more than $150,000. But for an institution of Wright State's size, the level of technology transfer activities is below what might be expected. For example, universities with comparable levels of research expenditures typically receive about two disclosures a month, on average. Last year, however, we averaged a little less than one per month, and this year to date we have received only one disclosure. Needless to say, if you do have a novel idea or think you might be on to something that could lead to a commercial product, we'd like to hear from you! The disclosure form itself, incidentally, is available from our web site (click on "Technology Transfer") or you can call me at ext. 2709.

Please contact RSP at ext. 2425 with any questions regarding planned or hoped-for training opportunities.

Edison BioTechnology Center Supports WSU Research

In the treasure chest of resources available to WSU faculty and staff is access to the programs and services provided by the Edison BioTechnology Center (EBTC). Dedicated to the development of the biotechnology industry in Ohio, EBTC professionals work closely with Research and Sponsored Programs staff to stimulate the growth of new programs and enhance collaboration between academia and industry.

EBTC staff will schedule training workshops to give WSU grantseekers an overview of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs-federal funding opportunities that support research and development efforts that offer the potential for commercialization of products. In addition, EBTC staff members conduct formal SBIR/STTR writing workshops or can informally answer questions, review draft proposals and provide feedback. EBTC boasts an 80% success rate for proposals that have been prepared in conjunction with their staff.

Those who wish to take advantage of the outstanding services offered by EBTC should contact Bill Sellers or Ellen Reinsch Friese in Research and Sponsored Programs at ext. 2425.

RSP Web Site Places Virtual Tools at Your Fingertips

You may have noticed the conspicuous absence of the paper version of our monthly publication, Funding Update. Since August, Funding Update has been available only as a link on the RSP Web site http://www.wright.edu/rsp/ as we do our part to save trees, while also providing more frequent reminders of upcoming deadlines. Funding Update is now posted twice each month, on the 1st and 15th, itemizing deadlines looming 90 days in the future, sorted by disciplines, and offering links to numerous sponsor Web sites.

Graphic of woman at computer.

We invite you to visit the RSP home page to check out the wealth of information available there. You will find three funding databases designed for electronic sponsor searches: Sponsored Programs Information Network (SPIN), Community of Science, and The Grant Advisor Plus. New policies and procedures for overload, account balance write-offs, and Facilities and Administrative (F&A) cost exceptions are outlined. RSP's 1996-97 annual report, Research in Review, is a recent addition to the home page.

Your comments and suggestions to further enhance the RSP Web site will be especially welcome. Please contact us by e-mail at rsp@wright.edu.


CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Research Challenge Early Start/Augmentation Applications Due October 23

The Research Challenge Early Start/Augmentation Grant program offers funding to support and improve the effectiveness of basic or applied research programs supported by external sponsors. In addition, "augmentation" may also include support for the pursuit of promising related new directions for an existing project.

Who is eligible to apply?

Fully affiliated WSU faculty who have:

  • submitted a competitive basic or applied research proposal through RSP to an external agency...
  • between April 1, 1998 and September 30, 1998 (regardless of deadline date)...
  • with a total first year sponsor cost of at least $30,000...
  • on which the faculty member is the Principal Investigator.

Budget

May not exceed 25% of the total cost of the first year of the submitted proposal or $50,000, whichever is less.

Due Date

Three copies of the application are due in RSP (122 Allyn Hall) on or before October 23, 1998.

Additional information

Questions should be directed to Bill Sellers, Director, RSP, ext. 2425. Guidelines are available on the RSP home page: http://www.wright.edu/rsp/


Post-Award NEWS

Document graphic.

RSP has implemented a new policy for the review of expenditure documents submitted against restricted (6-ledger) accounts. Effective November 1, 1998, only expenditures over $1,000, will be reviewed by RSP staff. In the past, grant and contract expenses for less than $1,000 that involved personnel, purchased services, travel, or equipment were still reviewed by RSP personnel. The new policy eliminates the need for this additional scrutiny; however, it does not change the University's responsibility to ensure that expenditures on extramural awards are allowable, reasonable, and beneficial. All expense documents must still contain at least two signatures, but all requests for payments under $1,000 (regardless of budget category) may now bypass RSP and be sent directly to the appropriate department (e.g., Purchasing, Accounts Payable) for processing.

For questions regarding the new procedure, please contact either Glen Jones (ext. 4461) or Jackie Frederick (ext. 4459).

Play the Match Game

A few minutes spent completing or updating your "Research and Scholarly Activity Interest Profile" could be your key to funding success. Here are three good reasons why:

  • RSP's database will automatically match your research interests with late-breaking funding opportunities;
  • locating WSU collaborators for multi-disciplinary projects can be simplified by using keyword searches; and
  • completed Profiles are required for all WSU internal funding programs and specialized workshops.

Profile forms and lists of keywords are available from Jan Power in RSP at ext. 2425 or by e-mail request at rsp@wright.edu.


Sponsor Alerts

AREA Funding an Option for Small-Scale Projects

Faculty who are seeking a funding mechanism to support new or small-scale health-related research projects, such as feasibility studies; development, testing, and refinement of research techniques; and similar discrete research projects that demonstrate research capability need look no further than the AREA Program. A National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant mechanism, the "Academic Research Enhancement Award" Program is designed to stimulate research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate training but that historically have not been major recipients of NIH support.

$$$ graphic.

While the WSU School of Medicine's success in attracting NIH funding has made it ineligible for the AREA Program, other faculty may be interested in the particulars of this opportunity. Up to $75,000 (direct costs) may be requested for a period not to exceed 36 months. Applications are accepted and reviewed three times per year; annual receipt dates are January 25, May 25, and September 25. Details may be found at the NIH/AREA Program Announcement (PA-97-052) Web site at: http://www.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-97-052.html

Application Packets Under Construction

Saw graphic. Hammer graphic.

Two major federal sponsors, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), have been busily updating their standard application packets to incorporate current terminology and instructions for electronic proposal submission. Copies of the new NSF Grant Proposal Guide (NSF 99-2) are currently available at RSP and should be used for proposal submissions effective immediately. Advance copies of the revised NIH packets (PHS 398 and PHS 2590) are available for review through the Web, but as yet should not be used for proposal submission. As soon as the NIH forms have been finalized, RSP will maintain a supply of the packets and advise WSU faculty of their availability.

An Invitation

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) invites new faculty and those just getting started in research to an orientation seminar that will introduce the various services available in our office. The seminar will be held on Tuesday, October 27, 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. in E156 A&B Student Union.

This seminar will answer these questions:

  • How do I locate external funding opportunities?
  • What Federal and University regulations affect my proposal?
  • What must I know about administering external funds?
  • Does the University have funds for research and scholarly projects?
  • How will RSP help?

In addition, RSP staff will demonstrate how their computerized database can be used to match faculty research interests with potential funding sources and, if desired, with WSU collaborators who share these interests. Your name and interest keywords will be added to the database at your request.

If you plan to attend the seminar, please contact Jan Power (Ext. 2425) by Thursday, October 22.
