The new Data Management and Sharing Policy (DMS Policy) will require every intramural and extramural investigator conducting NIH-funded research that will generate scientific data to prospectively develop and have an approved DMS plan.
CHI Reimagined: Call for Collaborative Study Proposals
Providing Advanced Technologies to Intramural Researchers
The NIH Center for Human Immunology, Inflammation, and Autoimmunity (CHI), which has been in existence for more than 10 years, provides advanced technologies to intramural collaborators who are studying the human immune system in health and disease. CHI has recently announced a call for proposals that intramural researchers from any institute or center (IC) may apply for.
News From and About the Scientific Interest Groups
Redox Biology SIG: A Reactive History of Redox Research at NIH
In the 1980s, NIH pioneers in redox biology launched transdisciplinary scientific groups—and even a national society— dedicated to understanding the role of oxygen, free radicals, reactive oxygen, and nitrogen species across the different fields of biology, physiology, and medicine. The earliest groups included oxygen clubs and the NIH Free Radical Research Scientific Interest Group (SIG), which was recently renamed the NIH Redox Biology SIG.
Read about NIH scientific advances and discoveries by intramural scientists: mechanical properties of cancer cells influence their aggressiveness; proteins that restore hearing in zebrafish; medication to treat alcohol-use disorder; novel imaging reveals details of a rare eye disease; compounds that may reverse neurological disease; and vaccines to prevent reinfection with hepatitis C.
NIH’s 6th Annual Animal Celebration and Reflection Ceremony, on September 21, 2022, was held (via videocast) to honor and express gratitude for the contributions research animals have made to exceptional biomedical research advances such as the discovery of insulin; the creation of viral vectors for improved gene therapy in sickle-cell disease; vaccine development; more effective pain therapies; and much, much more.
Congratulations to Mary Carrington who was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; Diana Bianchi who was named to Forbes’ 50 over 50; Clifford Lane who received a Sammies career award; Nina F. Schor who received leadership award; and to NIDDK Green Labs Team for winning an honorable mention award.
