46:35
Award Mechanisms are listed here along with eligibility criteria: https://trdrp.org/funding-opportunities/award-mechanisms/
Katie McKenzie
46:46
Postdoctoral fellows do not typically qualify for new investigator award. New investigators need to have an independent appointment at the institution
Katie McKenzie
47:07
Yes, you need preliminary data for a New Investigator award
Martina Ulivieri
47:39
Do you need preliminary data for the postdoctoral award as well?
Jennifer Felner
48:11
what is the expectation for preliminary data for new investigator award — the same level as the regular research awards?
Katie McKenzie
49:37
You should have enough preliminary data for a postdoctoral award (generated by your mentor, if not you) to justify your specific aims.
Pramil Singh
50:08
Thanks Katie. Is that the same for predoctoral?
Mimi Tarn
50:23
Are there instructions available regarding procedures for resubmissions?
Rachel Ceasar
51:33
Does TRDRP usually support qualitative research proposals as well? I know most of the grants support quant data.
Ellen Breen
51:46
With regard to cannabis research - does electronic cigarettes qualify as tobacco use?

Tobacco products include but are not limited to cigarettes, cigars, little cigars,. e-cigarettes, hookah, e-hookah and oral tobacco products.
Aurash Soroosh
54:34
Also in regard to cannabis research - does research on flavored cannabis products intended for inhalation, their appeal to younger uses, or the safety profile of flavor additives (terpenes or aldehyde flavorings) that are also added to flavored nicotine-containing vape products qualify?
Jennifer Felner
54:48
for a New Investigator award, is there an expectation that the investigator is stretching themself in a new area or method, or is it more common that they will leverage same kinds of approaches or methods they have used in the past.
Rachel Ceasar
55:05
Follow up to qual question—is there a particular officer you recommend I should research out for questions about my proposal? (Looking at co-use of cannabis x tobacco use during pregnancy)
Yiling Hong
55:23
Dose anxiety and depression be considered as tobacco related disease.
Aurash Soroosh

Awesome, thank you!

Does LOI need to describe specific aims?
Danny Kwon
01:00:45
I've had a chance to review the core awards pdf but did not notice any significant requirement differences for resubmissions. Has the criteria for resubmissions been altered since the previous (pre-covid) application cycle for the research award?
Stephen Sakuma
01:01:15
Considering resubmission or new application. How different does an application need to be for a new application or is there an advantage to resubmission?
David Spiegel
01:01:41
In responding to the previous RFAs, there was a requirement for studying tobacco use and a comorbid condition such as anxiety or depression - is that still the case?
TRDRP Staff - Samantha Toy
01:02:10
The LOI does include a section to describe your specific aims
David Spiegel
01:03:43
OK - will do
Anne Berit Petersen
01:05:50
How will COVID-19 related issues be handled in the review process?
TIMOTHY MACKEY
01:06:09
Can you apply for a award supplement if you have less than one year remaining but plan to submit NCE to extend another year?
Ginny Delaney (she, her, hers)
01:07:25
Anne, I'd recommend reaching out to a program officer with your specific question. The answer for laboratory research will likely be different for clinical or community research.
Ginny Delaney (she, her, hers)
01:07:44
Timothy, please email your program officer about post-award questions.
Anne Berit Petersen
01:07:58
Ok, will do. Thank you
Viviana Hermosilla
01:13:07
do we have to "invite" people from the institutional grant office too?
Nancy Chamberlain
01:14:09
Institutional officials are invited from within the Budget tab.
Desmond Smith
01:18:02
Why such a strange “danger” button for “budget complete”?
Nancy Chamberlain
01:19:34
Clicking 'budget complete' locks the budget to the PI, so we want to be sure PI's are certain about taking this step.
Ginny Delaney (she, her, hers)
01:19:34
The Very Comprehensive LOI and Application Instructions: https://ucop.smartsimple.com/files/1614305/f372551/SmartSimple_LOI_and_Application_Submission_Instructions.pdf
Desmond Smith
01:19:58
But why lock it so prematurely?
Nancy Chamberlain
01:20:50
You are welcome to save and not "complete" the budget if still a draft. The budget must be locked before submitting to S.O.
Desmond Smith
01:21:42
Often I change budget after consultation with SO
Nancy Chamberlain
01:22:12
The S.O. would return the proposal to you for changes if that's the case.
Desmond Smith
01:22:43
Ok thank you very much, but I will be very scared when on that page…
Desmond Smith
01:23:01
LOL
Nancy Chamberlain
01:23:07
We are here to help unlock your budget if necessary!
TIMOTHY MACKEY
01:24:05
Can you apply for a supp with an NCE request
TIMOTHY MACKEY
01:24:18
Thanks!
