[#DIV28SUPER] Info Requested Re NIH Clinical Trials


Colleagues, Jeremy Wolfe and FABBS are looking to identify researchers who are willing to share their experience preregistering and reporting experimental results in NIH's proposed clinical trials framework. See below – share with your colleagues who may be able to provide insights to help develop a more reasonable policy.

Dear All (on my informal NIH Clinical Trials email list) 

Hope life is treating you well. I am hoping you have some ideas for us. "Us" is FABBS (Federation of Associations of Behavioral and Brain Sciences). We are still working to mitigate the not-so-good effects of the NIH's Clinical Trials policy. As you probably know, at the moment, the rules for registering and reporting studies are in abeyance for a couple of years while the NIH tries to develop a sane system of registration. SO…here is where you come in. The US National Library of Medicine (NLM) is looking researchers to help them develop registration systems that work.  

We are looking for people who preregistered their studies and have now published these. You don't have to have preregistered in CT.gov. I, for example, have been using the Open Science Framework. 

FABBS has been asked to identify 10 such investigators who are doing work that might be problematic to register in ClinicalTrials.gov. NLM is particularly interested in NIH-funded basic experimental studies involving humans ("BESH") work that has any of these four characteristics.


1.           Does the study/project/paper consist of multiple experiments (Exps 1-N in your paper), not just one big "clinical trial".


2.           Does the analysis use an outcome measure that was not pre-specified. For example, maybe Reviewer 2 asked for an item analysis or maybe for a new control experiment. That wasin't in the original pre-registration.


3.           Does meaningful reporting of the data require recording non-aggregated results (like individual observer data).


4.           Does the project includes preliminary experiments that serve largely to optimize procedures.


So……do you have some ideas about researchers who we could approach?

Self-nomination is fine….encouraged….They/you would need to give us a bit of time and a bit of documentation. Who can you think of?


Many thanks!

[#DIV28SUPER] Submissions and Travel Awards for APA Convention 2020

Hi All,

As a reminder, the submission portal (https://convention.apa.org/proposals/division-programs) is now open and Division 28 is accepting poster and symposium submissions for the upcoming 2020 APA Convention in Washington, DC. The deadline for submissions is December 2, 2019 at 5PM EDT. 

We also would like to share a few exciting opportunities for Division 28 members at convention. First, APA has recently made a commitment to emphasizing and supporting interdisciplinary programs and research groups (i.e., one that include at least one non-psychologist member). To this end, APA has indicated that if a non-psychologist speaks at a session as a part of one of these collaborative teams, that individual's registration fee will be waived. These may include traditional research sessions or workshops and sessions on team science designed to benefit graduate students and ECPs (and others) by describing the strengths of such collaborative efforts.

Second, we will once again offer an early career travel award for graduate students, post-docs, and early stage faculty members conducting research on alcohol or other substance use. See the below message for more details on applying.

Finally, APA has traditionally supported graduate student travel to APA through the Science Directorate APA Student Travel Award (https://www.apa.org/about/awards/scidir-stutrav). Although details on the availability of this opportunity have not been formally shared for the 2020 convention, we will be sure to share this or other opportunities as they are announced.

Hoping to see everyone in Washington, DC next year! Please feel free contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Dear Graduate Students, Post-docs, and Junior Faculty,

If you are doing research on alcohol or other substance use, we would like to invite you to apply for our early career travel award.  This award is for $750 to help defray costs to the 128th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association, which will be held August 6-9, 2020, in Washington, DC.  Awards are made possible through funding from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (R13DA049497; PI: Hoeppner) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (renewal under review for R13 AA022858; PI: Hoeppner), which seek to foster the development of the next generation of alcohol and substance use researchers. 
To apply, simply submit your proposal via APA's online submission portal as you normally would (https://convention.apa.org/proposals).  You can submit directly to Division 50 (Addiction Psychology) or your home division.  APA's deadline for submission is December 2nd, 2019.
To be eligible for the travel award, proposals must focus on alcohol or other substance use or related problems.  Additionally, applicants are required to be the first author on the paper or speaker in the symposium.  You must also be a current graduate student, postdoc or early stage faculty member (within 10 years of receiving your degree).  If your proposal is accepted by your division for presentation, you can apply for the travel award by emailing my Research Coordinator, Ms. Hannah Carlon, at hcarlon@mgh.harvard.edu.  The deadline for applying for this travel award is February 15th, 2020.
If funded, presentations will be showcased at an Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour sponsored by the Society of Addiction Psychology (Division 50), Division 28 (Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse), NIAAA, and NIDA.  That means that you will present your work twice at APA: during your regularly scheduled time, and additionally at our early career investigator poster session.
We strongly encourage you to apply.  We will be able to fund a total of 15 travel awards, and an additional 15 awards may be possible if our NIAAA R13 renewal application is funded.  The Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour is a superb opportunity to connect with your peers and leading scientists in the field of addiction.  We would love to have you be part at our 2020 Early Career Investigators Poster Session and  Social Hour!
All the best,

[#DIV28SUPER] University of Alabama at Birmingham is hiring multiple faculty positions in Addiction (open rank)

Please see the ad below and feel free to pass on to others who may be interested. We are hiring several positions in addiction.


Join the UAB team and help us improve the health of Alabama and the Southeast

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Medicine (SOM) is leading the recruitment of multiple investigators (up to 15) for a major strategic increase in its portfolio across clinical and translational re-search efforts to conduct observational and interventional studies aimed at improving health outcomes broadly across the population of Alabama, the Southeast region, the United States, and globally. Recruitment is for tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure-earning faculty at all ranks and includes academic appointment in one or more of 27 academic departments across the SOM, many of which rank in the top 10 nationally in NIH funding. All applications will be considered, but priority will be given to those with emphasis (or focused) in: Value-Based Care, Public Health, Health Informatics, Digital Health, Implementation Science, Behavior Change, Health Economics, and Rural Health. Particular areas of focus currently include: Health Behaviors (e.g. Physical Inactivity, Poor Nutrition, Obesity), Infectious Diseases, Screening and Prevention in Primary Care, Health Care Quality Improvement, Mental Health, Infant Mortality, Cardiovascular Disease, Kidney Diseases, Diabetes, Musculoskeletal Disorders, Cancer Outcomes, and Health Disparities.

Driven by an intensely collaborative and entrepreneurial character, UAB is one of the leading economic engines of the State, with a nearly $4 billion budget and a statewide economic impact exceeding $7 billion annually. UAB is Alabama’s largest employer with more than 23,000 employees; it supports more than 64,000 jobs statewide. With more than 1,300 full time faculty and almost 1,200 medical and graduate students, the UAB SOM ranks 21st nationally in NIH research funding and in the top 10 for all public institutions. Research grant funding at UAB exceeded $527 million in 2018.

UAB is one of 42 institutions with an NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), which supports translational research and creates a supportive environment to promote junior investigators. The vision of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) and its tristate Partner Network is to reduce health dis-parities in diseases disproportionately represented within the Deep South.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
