Announcements Compliance, Integrity & Safety

NIH’s Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) has notified institutions that the new 2020 AVMA Guidelines on Euthanasia of Animals are to be implemented October 1, 2020. After October 1, 2020, grant applications and contract proposals must be consistent with the AVMA 2020 Guidelines.

The main change that will affect the most researchers is the method of CO2 exposure for rodents. The new required CO2 displacement rate is 30-70% of the chamber volume/minute.

Note that the UGA IACUC Policy on Rodent Euthanasia Using Carbon Dioxide has already been updated to reflect the new requirements.

Instructions posted at CO2 euthanasia stations should no longer reflect the old flow rate range, and must reflect the new required flow rate range.

FON: N00014-20-S-F006

Agency: DOD


Amount: $3,000,000

Due date: Aug 28, 2020

Brief Description: This FOA seeks distinguished researchers for the purpose of conducting innovative basic research in areas of interest to the DoD and fostering long-term relationships between the VBFF Fellows and the DoD. As defined by the DoD, basic research is “systematic study directed toward greater knowledge or understanding of the fundamental aspects of phenomena and of observable facts without specific applications towards processes or products in mind. It includes all scientific study and experimentation directed toward increasing fundamental knowledge and understanding in those fields of the physical, engineering, environmental, and life sciences related to long-term national security needs.

Amount: $2,500,000

Due date: Sept 24, 2020

Brief Description: This FOA supports the development and evaluation of tobacco cessation interventions tailored to HIV-positive populations, including those with comorbidities such as tuberculosis (TB), in low-resource settings in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). In particular, this FOA aims to bring together transdisciplinary teams of investigators to adapt interventions developed and tested in other challenging settings or low-resource populations and to test their robustness among persons living with HIV (PLWH) in LMICs.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites a single cooperative agreement application to continue the mission of the existing Human Pancreas Analysis Program (HPAP). This FOA will support one team of investigators with combined expertise in human pancreas physiology and pathophysiology; collection, processing and multimodal analysis of human pancreatic tissues; and biological database building, curation and management, that will be tasked to: 1) identify, collect and intensively characterize primary pancreatic tissues from patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) or at risk of developing the disease, as well as age-matched controls; and 2) analyze, organize and share the data resulting from the study of these tissues through the existing PANC DB open-access resource database. HPAP is a component of the Human Islet Research Network or HIRN. HIRN was created in 2014 to support innovative and collaborative translational research to understand how human beta cells are lost in T1D, and to find innovative strategies to protect and replace functional human beta cell mass.

Please read the full program announcement before preparing your internal application.
