CPHP to move to Smith Lab

The Center for Public Health Practice will move from 1212 Kinnear Rd. to the 5th floor of Smith Laboratory tomorrow (9/16). CPHP employees will be without computer access today and for most of tomorrow, so expect delays in responses from them. Their phones should be operational by tomorrow afternoon. All phone numbers will remain the same. Room assignments are as follows:

Joanne Pearsol: 5031
Racquel Graham and Melissa Sever: 5029
Heather Vilvens and Meredith Cameron: 5064
Adam Negley: 5062
Shirley Funt and Pat Watts: 5027


Beginning today, Tuesday Times includes a new section called "Tip of the Week." This section will offer helpful information for faculty and staff provided by various departments throughout the college.

Today’s tip is brought to you by the Office of Research:

If NIH funds your work, the new NIH Public Access Policy requires that you comply by (1) publishing in journals that automatically deposit all NIH-funded articles in PubMed Central (PMC) or (2) deposit final peer-reviewed manuscripts in PMC yourself. And when you cite your NIH-funded papers in NIH proposals, biosketches or progress reports, you must include the PubMed Central reference number (PMCID) for each paper. Sound like a major undertaking? It is! For assistance, contact Katrina Gustafson at or Kathy Renick at

CCTS Community Engagement RFA deadline, Nov. 2

The CCTS Community Engagement Program recently released a new RFA for pilot projects. Applications are due Nov. 12, and require a community partner. Up to $30,000 is available for each of the two 12-month projects. Additional funding is available for one of these projects if it has co-investigators from Nationwide Children's Hospital and OSU and a focus on children or adolescents. Read more >
