Aim Higher

The Division of Research invites you to view the website, The Grant Life Cycle, that aims to assist Wayne State University faculty and administrators navigate through the six steps that make up the grant process:

  • Generating your idea
  • Finding funding
  • Developing your proposal
  • Submitting your proposal
  • Awaiting and responding to the decision
  • Managing your award

This user-friendly website offers guidance and tips as well as step-by-step tutorial videos on how to develop a proposal on our new electronic proposal development and submission program, E-prop (COEUSLite), use our new grants program, Researcher's Dashboard, and more.

We invite you to visit this site often at http://spa.wayne.edu/grant/ to guide you through the grant life cycle process at Wayne State University!

IRB Training Session: The Protocol Summary Form (IRB application) for Expedited and Full board Review
April 21 2015 at 11:00 AM
IRB Administration Office
IRB Training Sessions are open to all students, faculty and affiliated staff interested in learning about IRB review of research. This training session will involve going through the questions on the Protocol Summary Form (PSF) which serves as the application for IRB review of a new study. We will discuss appropriate responses, the requirements for lay language, and how some of the questions should be addressed given certain scenarios of various types of research. The session will also include a brief overview of the basic requirements for submitting new research to the IRB.   When: Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 11am – 12 pm Where: Conference Room, IRB Administration Office, 87 E. Canfield, 2nd floor Speaker: Ray-Nitra Pugh, CIP, Education Coordinator, IRB Administration Office

Water@Wayne Seminar with Mark Baskaran, Wayne State University
April 23 2015 at 2:30 PM
Welcome Center Auditorium
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Water@Wayne Seminar on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. at Wayne State University's Welcome Center. The speaker will be Dr. Mark Baskaran, professor of Geology in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Wayne State University. He will present,"Impact of Fukushima Accident in the Environment – Lessons Learned." A reception will immediately follow in the Welcome Center Lobby. The seminar is free; registration is requested. Abstract: March 11, 2011 triple disaster, earthquake, tsunami and subsequent radiation releases at Fukushima Dai-ichi and their immediate impacts on human, environment and society were unprecedented in human history. In this presentation, an overview of studies of Fukushima-derived radionuclides in the atmosphere and ocean will be presented. The total amount of radioactivity released from Fukushima will be compared to natural amount present in the environment, amounts released from other nuclear accidents (Three Miles Island, Chernobyl) and other human-induced sources (nuclear reprocessing plants in U.K. and France). The temporal variations of radioactivity release and the concentrations of radio-cesium and –strontium in the coastal waters and biota near Fukushima over the past 4 years will be presented. The radiation dose received by fish in the coastal water near Fukushima will be compared to that from the natural radiation dose. Ocean currents carrying the Fukushima-derived radioactive substances are expected to arrive west coast of North America later this year, and its potential impact on human health will be presented. Brief Biosketch: Dr. Baskaran specializes in the study of environmental radioactivity as a tracer and chronometer in the oceans, lakes, atmosphere and terrestrial environment. His currently ongoing work includes studies of radioactive polonium and lead isotopes as tracers of particle cycling, remineralization in the Pacific and Arctic Oceans (funded by NSF), determination of ages of ice-rafted sediments and ice cores in the Arctic Ocean, sediment dynamics in the Dams in the Mid-Western United States (funded by USACE). His past work includes studies of fallout radionuclides in the Alaskan Arctic from Chernobyl and atmospheric release of radionuclides from Fukushima. Dr. Baskaran has served as a Technical Consultant to International Atomic Energy Agency, and he recently received Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award. He has published over 120 peer-reviewed journal articles, with over 4600 cumulative citations (Google Scholar, h-index of 40), and he has published a 2-volume edited set entitled “Handbook of Environmental Isotope Geochemistry” by Springer. Currently, he is a full professor in the Department of Geology and has adjunct position as a full professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
IRB Training WEBINAR: Human Participant Research - When Does Research Require IRB Review?
April 27 2015 at 12:00 PM
IRB Training Sessions are open to all students, faculty and affiliated staff interested in learning about IRB review of research. Learn about making determinations as to whether or not a research project or research activities require IRB review according to the federal regulations. We will discuss examples of both research that must be submitted for review and those activities that can be conducted without IRB review and approval. We will also review available tools that are useful for making these determinations. There are clear examples of research known to not require IRB review, and some cases, when the IRB Administration Office should assist in making the determination. Come and find out the appropriate questions that you should ask about your research project! When: Monday, April 27, 2015, 12 pm – 1 pmWhere: Your desk, a link to access the session in GoToMeeting will be sent after registrationSpeaker: Ray-Nitra Pugh, CIP, Education Coordinator, IRB Administration Office
