NIH’s Data Management and Sharing Plan: What You Need to Know
The NIH issued the Policy for Data Management and Sharing (DMS Policy) to promote the management and sharing of scientific data generated from NIH-funded or conducted research. This Policy establishes the requirements of submission of a Data Management and Sharing Plan. This plan emphasizes the importance of good data management practices and establishes the expectation for maximizing the appropriate sharing of scientific data generated from NIH-funded or conducted research, with justified limitations or exceptions. This Policy applies to most research funded or conducted by NIH that results in the generation of scientific data, regardless of award amount.
Robin Faria is the Director of the Grants Submission Unit (GSU) for UCLA’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute. Ms. Faria received her M.A. in Rhetoric and Composition from Loyola Marymount University and has over 15 years’ experience in research administration. Under her tenure, GSU has helped UCLA and CTSI partner sites receive nearly $640M in funding with over 500 grants supported since 2011. The GSU works closely with faculty to provide personalized services tailored to assist researchers throughout the grant submission process. Under Ms. Faria’s leadership, the GSU project managers break down the application process into workable pieces, utilizing project management tools, strategies, and best practices in order to reduce the administrative burden of application preparation. The GSU team has expertise in highly competitive large program project grants, and training grants. Additionally, the team offers one-on-one service for smaller applications including support for early-stage investigators. Examples of services include grant proposal management, editing and proofreading, administrative support, site coordination, grant application advice and research, and identifying funding opportunities and collaborations.
