coming out of this collaboration are very thoughtful and careful conclusions" says Martha Lucía Ospina Martínez the director of the Colombia INS Health experts in Colombia are focusing on tracking the pregnancies of women infected with Zika virus They want to know what factorssuch as the timing of infection during pregnancymake a fetus more or less susceptible to microcephaly But they want to take it a step further and continue medical surveillance for a full year after birth "With some other viruses there can be later onset problems like hearing problems or eye problems so we really want to monitor the health of children even beyond birth" says Honein "Obviously microcephaly is a serious outcome and we are very concerned about microcephaly but when I look at other viral infections like rubella or cytomegalovirus you can have microcephaly with those infections but you can also have a lot more subtle affects with those infections" In Brazil one peer-reviewed study has already found a link between babies exposed to Zika virus in the womb and being an increased risk for vision-threatening conditions As Zika continues to spread north the CDC is investing in Colombia with hopes of being able to better tackle the disease as it permeates the US Through information and technology sharing experts seem confident that they are finally getting a jump on the disease "We are really hoping to understand in Colombia is the full range of outcomes that might be associated with Zika virus disease" says Honein "Things are progressing very very well and its an extremely positive

NIH research grant applications awards and success rates NIH Last week the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that the success rate for research grants a closely watched indicator of how well investigators are doing in the struggle for funds fell to an all-time low in 2011: 18% At first glance the drop appears to be due to increased competition reflected in a steep rise on applications last year But several other factors are also at play including budget decisions made years ago says NIH extramural research chief Sally Rockey The success rate is the number of funded grants divided by reviewed applications The 18% success rate announced by Rockey on her blog is down 3% from 2010 and is slightly higher than a preliminary estimate last fall It continues a decline from success rates of around 30% a decade ago when NIH’s budget was growing Part of the explanation is that the denominator is larger: investigators sent a record 49592 research grant proposals to NIH last year an 8% rise But that’s not the whole story Rockey says in a blog post today Much of the rise is explained by a 17% increase in proposals for a specific category of funding—short-term R21 grants The mainstay for most labs is the larger R01 NIH’s individual investigator-initiated grant for which the success rate slid from 22% in 2010 to 18% in 2011 Applications rose 3% for R01s Another reason for success rate slippage is that NIH funded fewer R01 grants copmpeting compared with 2010 That’s partly because the size of the average grant grew slightly and because NIH had less to spend overall on R01s (its budget was cut 1% last year) But the most important factor accounting for 15% of the success rate drop is that a larger portion of R01 money than usual was tied up in already-awarded grants Because most NIH grants last 3 to 5 years each award creates several years of unfunded future commitments The amount of money needed for these ongoing grants rose by $189 million in 2011 Rockey reports "This demonstrates how carefully we need to manage our funds since funding decisions in any one year have implications for the out years" she writes She posted a graph showing how the share of NIH’s R01 money committed to ongoing grants fluctuates year to year In 2011 it jumped to 78% the highest level in 4 years A close NIH observer Howard Garrison of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology says managing that out-year commitment is a delicate balancing act for the agency If NIH gets a generous increase one year and doesn’t fund more grants "People like me go crazy because the money isn’t going out on the streets" he says Yet if Congress cuts NIH’s budget a couple of years later and NIH’s commitment has grown "you’re toast" and success rates plunge Rockey’s bottom line: "The success rate is complicated and it’s not just a single factor" that drives it she told ScienceInsider She adds that success rates don’t necessarily reflect "the quantity of science" NIH is funding The pool of funded investigators has remained fairly steady in recent years she says Although NIH received a modest 08% increase in 2012 the agency appears to be girding for a period of austerity A notice today states that continuing grants will get no inflationary increase in 2012 and new awards will not receive inflationary increases in future years (JEFFERSON CITY Mo) Thirty-three priests or religious brothers in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City Missouri have been “credibly accused” and/or removed from the ministry over sexual abuse of minors the bishop of the central Missouri diocese said Thursday Bishop W Shawn McKnight released a complete list of the names that followed an internal investigation begun in February The list includes 25 priests from the diocese three priests from other areas who previously served in the Jefferson City diocese and five members of a religious order Fourteen of the 33 men named are dead Many of them are elderly The diocese said the most recent case of physical sexual abuse found in the investigation occurred in 1997 “Although the incidents are in the past the pain caused is still a present reality for the survivors of abuse and their loved ones” McKnight said in a statement He apologized for the actions of the priests and brothers “and the incomplete transparency we have lived under by not making all their names public” McKnight also encouraged any additional victims to come forward David Clohessy St Louis director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests or SNAP called the list “irresponsibly and painfully short on details” McKnight “should reveal where each of these men worked when they were accused when those allegations were deemed credible why the years of secrecy and where the men are now” Clohessy said in a statement The internal investigation is unrelated to an investigation announced in August by Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley in which the Diocese of Kansas City-St Joseph the Diocese of Jefferson City the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau and the Archdiocese of St Louis all agreed to open their records Hawley’s announcement came amid renewed concern about sexual abuse by priests that followed the release of a scathing report in Pennsylvania citing abuse of more than 1000 children by hundreds of priests since the 1940s along with cover-up by church leaders Mary Compton a spokeswoman for Hawley said that investigation is “active and ongoing” but offered no timetable for when it will be complete “We are working as quickly as possible to carefully and thoroughly review all evidence obtained by our office” Compton said in a statement “The Pennsylvania Grand Jury completed its work in two years Our Office believes Missourians deserve answers as soon as feasible” Hawley on Tuesday defeated incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill in the race for US Senate Gov Mike Parson will name a replacement Jack Smith spokesman for the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St Joseph said the diocese also plans to release a list of names but will wait until the Attorney General’s investigation is complete Contact us at
