Dear Research Colleagues,
In October, Chancellor Don Elliman announced that university operations at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus will be officially closed from the end of business on Friday, December 23, 2022 through Monday, January 2, 2023 in gratitude for our team’s hard work and dedication. Normal business hours will resume on Tuesday, January 3.
UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado operations are not affected by this closure. Students, faculty and staff assigned to work in the clinics/hospitals on campus must report to work unless told otherwise.
Please note that those with clinical responsibilities and other critical functions requiring them to work during the closure will receive equivalent holiday administrative leave to take at another point during the fiscal year. This should be coordinated with your supervisor.
In addition, the University Research Team has put plans in place to ensure that critical operations can continue without interruption during the closure. Please see below for department-specific details and emergency contact information.

The CRIO Council Data Management and Sharing Plan Working Group hosted a virtual Town Hall on December 13 where information and resources about the New NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy (DMSP) were shared and discussed with more than 200 participants.
Beginning January 25, 2023, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will require researchers nationwide to include a Data Management and Sharing Policy (DMSP) in all research funding applications.
The suggested DMSP length is two pages and is not a scored component of proposals. NIH has provided a DMS-Plan-blank-format-page, which includes documentation relating to data types, tools and software, standards, timelines for sharing, and privacy and compliance considerations. Scientific data should be made accessible as soon as possible, and no later than the time of an associated publication or the end of performance period.
The detailed policy changes can be found online, and key features are described on the NIH DMSP website. The policy applies to all NIH-funded research and the annual Notice of Award is dependent on Research Performance Progress Reports. Grant budgets may include costs for preserving and sharing data including for personnel, but these funds must be spent during the funding period.
The DMSP Working Group is developing templates for each plan component, including information about where you can store and share data on campus, as well as cost, security, and compliance information. If you missed the Town Hall, the recording can be found here.
We will also be hosting DMSP office hours and additional DMSP Town Halls in January 2023, please stay tuned for upcoming registration information.
The CU Denver and CU Anschutz Medical Campus proudly announce the next call for applications for the Lorna Grindlay Moore, PhD, Faculty Launch Award.

The CU Anschutz SOM Programmatic Incubator for Research (CU ASPIRE) Program’s goal to increase submission and success of program projects, center grants and large multi-investigator programs on campus by supporting milestone-driven collaborations between investigators across campus. Successful applications will include three to five investigators with complementary scientific backgrounds focused on solving a complex unmet need in basic science or clinical medicine. Learn more and apply by Feb. 1, 2023.
High-Resolution peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography (HR-pQCT) is now available in the outpatient Adult CTRC to obtain non-invasive 3D images at the distal tibia and distal radius of humans for clinical in vivo assessments of volumetric bone mineral density and parameters of bone quality (e.g., microarchitecture, geometry, porosity, and biomechanics). XtremeCT II HR-pQCT scanner images have a very small isotropic voxel size (60.7 μm) and very low radiation dose (≤5 μSv per scan/anatomical site) so the device can be used for studies performed in adult, adolescent, and pediatric populations.
These seed grants are intended to increase utilization of this new instrument and can only be used for HR-pQCT scanning/analysis. They are supported by the CCTSI, the Vice Chancellor of Research, and Pediatric Endocrinology at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
Applications are due February 15, 2023.
This bulletin is distributed on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month for the CU Anschutz Research Community.
