  • A key factor for achieving Vision and Change for improved STEM teaching (http://www.visionandchange.org) is the practical support of instructors seeking to acquire, apply, and assess effective ways to achieve active learning when they teach. Immersion and mentoring experiences are particularly helpful to this process (Sirum et al., 2010; Murray et al., 2011; Vergara et al., 2013).  Therefore, the Mentoring Active Learning and Teaching (MALT) program will fund up to $2,000 for individual undergraduate biology educators to visit, observe, and work with mentors skilled in active learning strategies and evidence-based teaching that align with Vision and Change principles

  • This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is a part of the Pediatric Preclinical Testing Consortium (PPTC) initiative. The PPTC will consist of in vivo and in vitro testing Research Programs (both supported under companion RFA-CA-14-018) and the PPTC Coordinating Center (supported under this FOA). The PPTC is designed to address key challenges associated with the development of new therapies for children with cancer by developing reliable preclinical testing data for pediatric drug candidates that can be used to inform new agent prioritization decisions. Effective prioritization is critical because of the large universe of drugs being developed for adult cancers, a number so large that no more than a small number can be studied in pediatric clinical trials. Identifying through preclinical testing those investigational agents most likely to have clinical activity for selected childhood cancers accelerates the pace at which treatments that are more effective than the current ones can be identified and incorporated into standard practice for children with cancer. The PPTC Research Programs, responsible for conducting the in vivo and in vitro testing of selected agents, will be focused on specific tumor types that are particularly relevant to pediatric oncology. The PPTC Coordinating Center, which is subject of this FOA, will be responsible for integrating the activities of the individual PPTC Research Programs to create a functional consortium for pediatric preclinical testing. Specifically, the PPTP-Coordinating Center will provide administrative coordination and infrastructure, data management and statistical support, as well as Consortium scientific coordination.
