Tufts CTSI Welcomes Edward Kuczynski to CTRC


Tufts CTSI and the Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC) are delighted to announce that today, Edward Kuczynski, MA assumed the role of Director of Clinical Research Operations.

Most recently, Mr. Kuczynski served as Executive Director of the Center for Nuclear Receptors and Cell Signaling at University of Houston. Previously he was Associate Chair of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, and Executive Director of Women's Health Services, at Yale University School of Medicine.

Mr. Kuczynski brings to Tufts CTSI a broad range of organizational, administrative, and leadership skills and experience; expertise in strategic planning and business plan implementation for clinical research activities; a history of sustained clinical and research volume and revenue growth; energy and enthusiasm for clinical research; and a record of fostering a collaborative, transparent, and collegial atmosphere. 

His office is located at 35 Kneeland Street, 8th Floor, in Boston, and he can be reached at EKuczynski@tuftsmedicalcenter.org.  
 

Reminder: Apply for Pilot Studies Funding


Do you have an idea for an innovative, interdisciplinary, translational research project? Apply for funding through Tufts CTSI's Pilot Studies Program and your project could be awarded up to $60,000.

Not sure if you're eligible? Review the Request for Applications and Frequently Asked Questions, or email pilots@tuftsctsi.org.

Letters of Intent are due by 5:00PM on Friday, September 25, but candidates are encouraged to submit their LOIs early. This will allow our Research Collaboration Team ample time to connect you with services and resources relevant to your study. 
 

NIH Salary Cap Subject to Further Reduction


Each year, Congress legislatively mandates a provision limiting the direct salary that an individual may receive under an NIH grant. On June 24, the House Appropriations Subcommittee passed a plan to reduce the Executive Level III salary limit by 8%, from $183,300 to $168,700. 

This cut will be very difficult for academic and clinical institutions. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMA) created a letter to contact members of Congress to urge them not to lower the salary cap. If you oppose the salary cap, please send this letter to your elected officials, using your personal contact information.
