UAB’s template confidential disclosure agreements have been updated and are available at the OSP Confidentiality Disclosure Agreement (CDA) webpage. The following confidential disclosure agreement (CDA) templates are available:
Mutual Confidential Disclosure Agreement (Company and UAB disclosing confidential information);
Unilateral Confidential Disclosure Agreement (Company Disclosing to UAB); and
Unilateral Confidential Disclosure Agreement (UAB Disclosing to Company)
Please use, and encourage the contracting party to use, the appropriate UAB template CDA. If the contracting party can agree to the terms of one of UAB’s template CDAs, UAB will sign the agreement without further routing and review, resulting in a more expeditious process.
Please forward any questions regarding the CDA process, or UAB’s template CDAs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On April 30, 2015 the Form FDA 1572 on the FDA website at http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/ReportsManualsForms/Forms/ListFormsAlphabetically/ is expired.

The Office of Sponsored Programs is pleased to announce additional enhancements to the OSP dropbox for electronic SF424 grant applications to grants.gov. The link to access the OSP dropbox is OSP Drop Box for Electronic Submissions to Grants.gov . The revised OSP dropbox user guide can be found at OSP Dropbox Quick Submission Guide. New enhancements to the dropbox include:
The attribute page has been modified to prompt the user to create a record and then upload the files. When the proposal record is created the attribute page is refreshed with the comment “Submit Successful*” with a footnote to continue to upload files (“*Please continue on to the Upload Files section and attach your proposal documents”).
Once the proposal record is created, the Upload file tab is now used to upload the proposal documents.
The upload file history can now be viewed using the “File History” section. This allows users to verify that the upload was successful.
If you have any questions regarding the new OSP dropbox functionality, please contact your OSP federal officer or email@example.com.
The UAB Center for the Study of Community Health (CSCH), one of 26 Prevention Research Centers (PRCs) designated nationally by CDC, announces the 2016 Community Health Scholars pilot grant program, an initiative to encourage community-based participatory research (CBPR) by UAB faculty.
The pilot and feasibility program is intended to provide seed support for new and innovative research projects directed at basic, biochemical, translational, clinical, and community-based research questions that broadly pertain to diabetes, diabetes complications, and cardiometabolic disease. Pilot projects should be designed to generate sufficient data as the basis for further extramural funding (e.g., R01 applications) in order to substantially pursue and expand the line of investigation.
The UAB Comprehensive Diabetes Center (UCDC) would like to invite faculty to submit applications for this year’s Seed Funding program focusing on the interplay between diabetes and other chronic diseases.
Research Focus: Diabetes has become a widespread chronic disease, but with reasonably good life expectancy. Similarly, survival of many other chronic diseases has improved dramatically in recent years resulting in more patients suffering from diabetes as well as other health issues. However, very little is known about the crosstalk between diabetes and other chronic diseases. The purpose of this award is therefore to allow UAB faculty to initiate novel basic research into the role diabetes plays in other disease states, how other diseases may affect diabetes and what common pathways and targets may exist. Please note that the intent of this award is to support basic science projects. It is expected that provided seed funding will be utilized to obtain sufficient data to apply for significant extramural funding.
