Ride Cincinnati Pilot Grant Program Seeking Proposals
The Marlene Harris Ride Cincinnati Breast Cancer Pilot Grant Program is soliciting proposals for cancer-related research pilot projects.
In 2011, the grant program will offer approximately four grants of $40,000.
Grants will be awarded for a period of one year and researchers will have the opportunity to renew their grant the following year. All grants should have a strong scientific basis for development into national funded programs following the end of the funding period.
Deadline for proposals is 5 p.m. Friday, April 15.
A long-term goal of the UC2019 strategic plan is to increase the number of national/international awards to UC faculty.
A new website has been developed to facilitate applying for or nominating faculty for awards. Login is required using your central login and password, and awards are listed by name, deadline and college. http://research.uc.edu/externalawards/
Web links with additional information about each award and the application process is provided.
If you have questions or recommendations for additions to the awards list, email Dawn O’Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The event is a continuing medical education activity, made possible by the Henry A. Nasrallah, MD, Endowed Lectureship Fund.
Pre-registration is not required, and there is no fee to attend.
The UC Department of Neurosurgery, UC Neuroscience Institute and Mayfield Clinic will host Vasospasm 2011: The 11th Inter-national Conference on Neurovascular Events after Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, July 21-23, at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.
Vasospasm, a sudden spasm of a blood vessel, occurs frequently after a ruptured aneurysm and can lead to permanent brain damage or death.
It remains mysterious and frustrating to doctors, who as yet have no optimal clinical management strategy.
The conference will address clinical management strategies and basic science studies, and include full sessions, workshops and platform and poster presentations based on abstract submissions.
Mario Zuccarello, MD, chairman and Frank H. Mayfield Professor of the neurosurgery department, and Joe Clark, PhD, a professor in the neurology department, are event co-chairs.
