RESEARCH REPORT
CEAS Office of Research Support
Mid-Year Update
March 2012
From the Associate Dean for Research
I am very pleased to present this report of CEAS grant activity for the first
seven months of fiscal year 2011-12 (July 1, 2011 through March 1, 2012).
This report lists each application and award during that time, with
information on the PI, Co-PI(s), the grant title, sponsor, and amount.
The CEAS Office of Research Support gathered this information from monthly
funded grant reports distributed by the Graduate School, WISPER records, as
well as internal records.
I am especially pleased to announce our proposal success rate is 33%, which is
significantly above the national average. Much of this success is due to
faculty writing stronger and more competitive proposals, and to the CEAS
Office of Research Support for its excellent proposal development and
management expertise.

In this issue you will see broad faculty representation in both applications and
awards. The six largest awards illustrate our funding diversity:
•
David Yu, Craig Berg, Michael Lovell, $374,601, from the National
Science Foundation for a Research Experience for Teachers Site
•
Andrew Cohen, $354,668, National Institutes of Health, Computational
Sensing of Meaningful Differences in Clonal Phenotype
•
Junhong Chen, $300,588 from Johnson Controls, Inc. for research on
lithium-ion batteries
•
Liang Zhang, $284,983 from the National Science Foundation for a
GOALI collaborative award with industry
•
Brian Armstrong, $248,511 from the National Institutes of Health for
research on motion tracking with colleagues at the University of Hawaii
•
David Yu and Adel Nasiri, $219,210 from Eaton Corporation for
research on micro-grids
Other features in this report are agency updates and details about an
upcoming workshop on NSF CAREER proposals.
I look forward to continued grant success for the rest of this academic and
fiscal year.
Best regards,

Highlights of the report are provided below. Information in the
charts (left) is based on the following data from the Fact Book:
•
•
•
•
Topic: number of applications and awards, and success rates
Funding mechanism: Non-SBIR/STTR research project grants
Type: All competing applications
Fiscal Year: 2010 and 2011
The overall success rate declined from 21% to 18% from 2010 to
2011. According the Fact Book, there were 3,609 additional
applications and 656 fewer awards in fiscal year 2011.
In addition, the number of competing R21 applications increased by
17% (1,904), accounting for more than one-half of the total increase
in the number of applications. The increase in the number of R21
applications alone accounts for nearly all of the decrease in R21
success rates from 15% to 13%.
The R01 picture is more complicated—the increase in R01
applications accounts for only 1-point of the 4-point drop in the R01
success rate. Other reasons for the decrease include:
•
The FY 2011 NIH budget was reduced by 1%, thereby reducing
funding for R01s by $117 million.
•
NIH funds most grants on an incremental basis.
•
The average cost of R01 awards increased. An increase in the
size of an award contributed the remaining 0.5-point drop in
R01 success rates.
While the success rate number is often cited as the indicator of the
state of funding at NIH, it is very complex, and certainly, there is
not a simple relationship between the success and the quantity of
science supported by NIH. The success rate may be more closely
equated with an indicator of competition, at least within some
mechanisms, but even then, it is not straightforward.

If you are planning to submit an NSF CAREER proposal this year, plan to
attend a special workshop that will review the CAREER program and provide a
wealth of information and tips to help you develop a stronger and more
competitive proposal.
Marjorie and Michelle will present this highly informative NSF CAREER
workshop on Friday, May 11 at 11:30am in EMS E250. Topics will include
how to craft a strong education plan, the new protocol for working with the
Milwaukee Public Schools System, and how to develop an effective evaluation
plan. The criteria for meaningful Intellectual Merit and Broader Impact
statements will also be reviewed.
Please contact Michelle Schoenecker ([email protected]) if you plan to
attend. Please feel free to bring your lunch—refreshments will be provided.
New NIH Tool Finds Project Data Faster
and Easier
NIH has just launched LikeThis, a new thesaurus-based search tool that
enables PIs who are registered in eRA Commons to find information about
other research projects that have similar goals and objectives as their own.
By entering specific scientific terms or accessing your own grant applications
or grants and clicking on the LikeThis link, you will be provided with a list of
similar funded projects and/or publications. Publications are hyperlinked to
PubMed for easy access, and all search results can be exported as an Excel or
XML file.
The Benefits
With the ability to find similar projects and publications, you can more
efficiently:
•
Find new ideas for research based on what NIH has awarded in the past.
•
See with NIH is doing in your area of interest.
•
Determine which study section should review your application.
How it Works
LikeThis is available from the eRA Commons home page under the Additional
Links section. There is a dedicated home page that includes a menu bar with
links to announcements, news, tips, support, and contact information.
