University of Florida: Youth Tobacco Prevention Policy Online Town Hall
Join a National Conversation on Youth Tobacco Use and Prevention Policy on February 28, 2018:
HealthStreet, a community engagement program at the University of Florida's Clinical and Translational Science Institute (NIH NCATS-funded), is hosting its 16th National Our Community, Our Health (OCOH) town hall event on February 28, 2018 to discuss the latest research on youth tobacco use trends, the Tobacco 21 initiative, and how prevention policy can make an impact in our communities. If you want to know more about this local and national issue, this town hall event is perfect for you. It will allow you to ask questions and share your ideas directly with researchers and experts.
Here’s how it works:
The OCOH town hall series is a conversation between researchers and community members across the country. Each event is attended by an in-person audience and viewers tuning in via live-stream nationwide. Community members are invited to discuss the studies and future research with the presenters, encouraging a mutual understanding of health research and its impact. Twitter and text messaging are used to facilitate questions and comments from both in-person attendees and the live-stream audience.
This important and interactive town hall will:
-Increase public awareness of youth tobacco use trends
-Share research being done by various institutions
-Provide time for questions about youth tobacco use trends, prevention policy and the impact of the Tobacco 21 initiative

Hollings Cancer Center Equipment & Technology Award
Applications due Friday, March 2nd
The purpose of the Hollings Cancer Center’s (HCC) Equipment and Technology Award (ETA) is to provide a mechanism for replacing aging, obsolete or damaged research instrumentation, or to acquire new research equipment that represents the latest advances in the field. Support for development of new technologies, beyond equipment purchases, will also be considered for funding by this mechanism. The overall aim of the program is to provide the availability of state-of-the-art multi-user instrumentation and/or technologies necessary to support the research goals of cancer center investigators.
User-Cost Vouchers: Helios Mass Cytometry
The Cancer Immunology Program at Hollings Cancer Center and Department of Microbiology & Immunology, College of Medicine, MUSC is pleased to announce that funding through a voucher program is available to support usage of the Immune Monitoring & Diagnosis (IMD) Core Mass Cytometer (CyTOF). Mass cytometry is a single-cell detection technology based on inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Antibodies or other reagents tagged with rare metal isotopes can be used to probe the proteome and potentially over 100 available parameters can be simultaneously measure on a single cell without the issue of spectral overlap typical for classical, fluorochrome-based flow cytometry or tissue or cell autofluorescecne. The in-house instrument, CyTOF2.1 (Helios), is capable of measuring 135 different mass channels (75-209amu) at a throughput of 1000 cells/sec. Further information about the core facility and its capabilities may be found on our IMD Webpage:
You may also contact Carsten Krieg, Ph.D. (email@example.com).
The goal of this voucher program is to provide funds to investigators to develop high-quality, innovative basic tumor immunology and translational immunotherapy cancer research preliminary data for external grant applications that would use the core facility.
· Vouchers in amounts of $5,000 will be granted for Exploratory Pilots. A total of 20 individual vouchers will be awarded.
· Vouchers in amounts of $10,000 will be granted for Discovery Pilots. A total of 5 individual vouchers will be awarded.
Submit a one-page description of your project in the format of an NIH R-type specific aims page accompanied by an NIHstyle Bio Sketch of the Principal Investigator as a single PDF file to Julia Singleton (firstname.lastname@example.org). Preliminary data is not required; however, the project description must have sufficient detail for reviewers to understand and judge the scientific merit of the proposal. In addition, you should state how your intended use of the voucher program would either enhance an ongoing project or improve the likelihood of acquiring external funding. The executive committee of the core facility will evaluate the proposals and awardees will be notified via email when decisions have been made.
February 15th , 2018, 5:00 P.M. Earliest award of voucher March 1st, 2018.
