American Association of Pathologists' Assistants Conference Scholarship Opportunity
Would you like the opportunity to attend the 40th Annual AAPA Continuing Education Conference in New York City, September 6 – 12, 2014? Maybe you’ve always wanted to attend the conference but haven’t had the funds to do so? Maybe you haven’t been to the conference for awhile and are interested in expanding your peer network?

Now’s your chance! We are offering TWO Fellow Scholarships for the first time this year. To be eligible for the scholarship, we need you to share your story about an interesting case that you’ve recently encountered. The top TWO winning case report entries will receive a scholarship to attend the conference valued at $1800 (full week registration + $1000 to help cover your travel expenses).
Deadline: Monday, June 2
We’re looking for top quality case reports - must be a minimum of 500 words, and include a minimum of one micrograph and one photograph. The TWO winning entries will be published in a future issue of The Cutting Edge, and other submissions may be used at a later date for CME purposes, along with a corresponding quiz written by the AAPA.
Request for Applications to Investigate the Clinical Effectiveness of Ultrasound Versus Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Joints or Soft Tissue Pathology
The Endowment for Education and Research (EER) of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) has issued a request for applications (RFA) to investigate the clinical effectiveness of ultrasound versus magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for joints or soft tissue pathology using an independent gold standard, either clinical or surgical. Preference will be given to studies other than those addressing rotator cuff tears because there is already ample literature on this topic. Projects are expected to be completed within a 2-year time frame.
Supported by an educational grant from Philips Healthcare, $50,000 has been allocated for one or more grants in this area. Deadline for submission is April 30, 2014, 11:59 PM, Eastern Time.
o Applicants from outside the United States may apply.
o Applicants need not be members of the AIUM.
o Members of the AIUM Board of Governors or Executive Committee may not apply or be included in any capacity within the proposal.
o Members of the granting committee may apply but will then not be allowed to be involved in the reviewing of any submissions.
o An individual may be the principal investigator on only 1 proposal, but may serve in another capacity on another proposal.
o Proposals would preferably include evidence of prior experience in similar investigations.
o Up to $50,000 has been allocated for 1 or more grants in this area.
o Funding of IRB (institutional review board) costs and/or capital equipment is not allowed. The AIUM defines capital equipment as a piece of equipment, hardware, or software costing more than $1,000.
o No more than $1,000 in grant funding may be used for travel. Travel expenses must be consistent with the AIUM travel policy.
o Institutional overhead (indirect) costs will not be funded.
o Salary requested cannot exceed NIH guidelines.
o Funds will be disbursed to tax-exempt organizations. If the grant recipient is not tax exempt per IRS Publication 78, the grant recipient will be issued a 1099 for tax-reporting purposes. Exempt organizations must supply a copy of their IRS Determination Letter and all others must complete a Form W9 before funds can be disbursed. If an award is made to an international applicant, the applicant will need to supply substantiation of his/her organization’s nonprofit status.
o The AIUM will distribute all funds to the principal investigator and/or his/her institution. Subdivision of funds—as identified in the budget proposal—to other participants will be the responsibility of the host institution, in coordination with the principal investigator. Prior to the distribution of funds, the AIUM will require a signed agreement between the host institution and the AIUM.
o Funds will be disbursed on the following basis: 40% at award, 40% at receipt of a satisfactory 9-month progress report, and 20% at receipt of a satisfactory final report.
o Studies should comply with the AIUM Practice Guideline for the Performance of a Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Examinations and with AIUM official statements, including Interpretation of Ultrasound Examinations.
o Studies that involve research on human subjects should have IRB (Institutional Review Board) approval prior to grant submission, and this should be stated in the proposal.
o Grant application must have signatures of the responsible official at the institution (Grants Administration/IRB) and department chair.
o Final results should be submitted for presentation consideration at an AIUM Annual Convention.
o A progress report will be required at 9 months and a final report within 3 months of completion of the project.
o Publications and presentations regarding the research are encouraged, and the AIUM should be kept informed about any publications or presentations resulting from the research, even after submission of the final progress report. Notation acknowledging support from the AIUM and Philips Healthcare should be made in all publications and presentations.
o The project should be completed within 2 years of the signed contract.
o Proposals are evaluated based on the following criteria
-- Significance (Will successful completion of the aims change the concepts, methods, treatments, or interventions that drive this field?)
-- Investigators (Are the principal investigators and other researchers well suited to the project?)
-- Innovation (Does the application challenge or seek to shift clinical practice paradigms by using novel approaches or methodologies?)
