And don’t miss the couldn’t their understanding of the program be useful on a Validation panel?

In the end, they chose 330 unblemished panelists and provided training (no details offered) on the program. Expect to hear some noisy complaints about panelist comments in conflict with program requirements.

I’m looking forward to reading some of the winning narratives. They’ll be posted on data.ed.gov.


NCRR requests applications for a Clinical and Translational Science Coordinating Center

The 55 recipients of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) have been invited to apply for an additional award to act as a national coordinating center.

The new center will receive $4 million a year for 5 years ($20 million total) to develop and deliver communication infrastructure (i.e., wikis, forums, other online tools) and to provide administrative support for committee and working group meetings. The center will also be responsible for maintaining CTSAweb.org, the non-governmental website for the consortium of CTSAs. The center won’t be expected to provide any support for research.

A 30-page narrative and supplemental documents are due January 12, 2011, and the new center has an anticipated start date of December 2011.

Full details are included in the RFA.
