Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am an Associate Investigator at the VA Medical Center and an affiliation with the UCSF Neurology department, am I qualified to apply for REAC?
Q: I would like to apply but don't know what category I fall under. I am a junior clinical assistant professor of medicine in gastroenterology in my 3rd year on staff. My study is done using Kaiser db but I am not allowed to go through charts myself as I am not in the union. To finish my study, I need additional funds.
Q: I am an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Dept. of Medicine. I am in the Clinical series, not the Academic Senate. Am I eligible to apply?
Q: I am an assistant professor in residence without salary. Does that mean I am not qualified?
Q: I am a UCSF faculty member in Peds-Cardiothoracic Surgery but will be doing my research at UCD. How would this relate to my IRB approvals or other possible matters? My appointment is assistant professor.
Q: I am interested in applying for a REAC grant. I was appointed on July 1, 2006 in Medicine. My current rank is instructor, but I am in the process of being promoted to Assistant Professor.
Q: Can you use REAC funds to buy software upgrades? I need to use UC dollars so I can receive UC discounts.
Q: I am a faculty member at UCSF. I am a Health Policy
Researcher, and am currently collaborating with several investigators
at the UCSF Health Policy Inst. I was told that REAC funding can only
be used for "supplies and materials" not for "salary support."
I am not interested in supporting my own salary, but the majority of my
funding goes to pay for statistical support and a database manager. I
do not have a wet lab per se, and the majority of my research is done
on the computer.
Q: I would like to use one of our PI's as a statistician
but he has just been promoted to Assistant Adjunct Professor. Can we still
use him as the Statisician?
Q: I have a REAC grant from the last fall cycle that will expire soon. Can I apply for a new grant at the next deadline?
Q: I am interested in applying for a shared instrument award, but it would be for more than one instrument. It would be for a couple of pieces of equipment that we need for our new China Basin facility. The amount would be under $25K and everyone at the center would be able to use it.
Q: For shared instrument grant, the proposal has 10 different faculty members. Do they all need to sign?
Q: Does the proposal need to go through Contracts and Grants first, or simply to the REAC office?
