Research AdministrationxTrain: On-Line Management of NIH External Training and Fellowship Grants
xTrain is a new eRA Commons service that allows electronic management of appointment forms and termination notices for trainees and fellows on NIH training and fellowship grants. Use of xTrain is required for all grants supported by this system.
OTL&ICMedical Device Startups
Because medical device inventions usually have a shorter time to market and are inherently less risky than diagnostics or drugs, devices are among the best medical technologies for commercialization through a startup company.
IRBTips for International Human Subject Research
Human subject research performed outside of the U.S. requires more knowledge and more time than that performed entirely within the U.S. In order to develop appropriate protocols, researchers need to be familiar with the host country’s laws, as well as the local culture and norms.
IBCTraining Requirement Specific to PIs on Institutional Biosafety Committee Registrations
In response to significant changes in NIH guidelines and regulations, and increased scrutiny by the Office of Biotechnology Activities at the NIH, the Institutional Biosafety Committee has instituted a new training requirement for Principal Investigators (PIs) with active Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) registrations at Tufts University and Tufts Medical Center.
