Dear AI/AN CTRP Colleagues:

Due to limited funds, the AI/AN CTRP will not re-issue Request for Proposals for the Small Grants for Community Health & Research Capacity or the Early Stage Investigator Career Awards.
Please feel free to share this information with others.
Thank you.

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training
The Office of Research Integrity is announcing the fall 2019 Responsible Conduct of Research course. It will be held Saturday, September 7, 9:00am-3:30pm in 401 IARC.  (If you need to participate via distance or are unavailable on this date please let me know.)
The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training covers core norms, principles, regulations, and rules governing the practice of research. This particular workshop fulfills the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) requirements for formal RCR instruction. This is the only formal RCR training at UAF this semester.  RCR is a highly recommended “best practices” course for those wanting to deepen their knowledge of ethical research and responsible conduct. It is also an excellent professional opportunity for anyone interested in furthering a career in research.
To register, please visit:  or see attached announcement for more information. Please contact Bridget Watson at or 474-7832 with questions.
Let me know if you have questions or you see errors or omissions.
Thank you,

           Where Are the Application Forms?
NIH Extramural Nexus
Posted on August 8, 2019, by 

You might be surprised to learn that we don’t have a generic set of forms posted on our website that you can use to submit to any NIH grant opportunity. Each funding opportunity announcement (FOA) includes the specific set of forms needed to apply to that program, so you need to find an FOA in order to access the application forms. Walk through the process of finding and accessing application forms with this grant application submission tips for success video.

Form-by-form, field-by-field instructions for completing your application may be found on the How to Apply – Application Guide page under the green header for Application Form Instructions. Use these instructions in conjunction with the guidance in the funding opportunity announcement (including the Related Notices section of the announcement) to develop your application. The annotated form sets are another handy tool to help you navigate the forms.

Take a look...
The National Institutes of Health has produced a new video that captures the spirit, mission, community, and the lifesaving work we do at NIH and the more than 2,500 universities, medical schools, and other research institutions in every state and around the world. 

Copper Valley Fish Collective founders Micah Hahn* and Ben Tietge are featured in Alaska Magazine's ONLINE EXTRAS.
