Welcoming New ORI Team Members

Dear Colleagues,

Drexel’s R-1 Carnegie Classification as a “Very High Research Activity” institution was first attained in 2018 and reaffirmed in 2022, with the University improving on the majority of classification metrics. Since 2014 our externally sponsored research expenditures have increased by more than 40 percent, and in the last fiscal year alone, our research community achieved the highest levels of sponsored research expenditures to date, representing a 9 percent increase over the prior year. As a biochemist who first joined Drexel 20 years ago, I could not be prouder of the colleagues and students whose work has elevated our research and innovation enterprise to the levels we see today. And I recognize that to sustain this activity requires a robust research support team. Today, I am thrilled to introduce 13 new team members to the Office of Research & Innovation who will help to support our continued growth. Many of these new colleagues are filling roles that have been vacant for some time, while a few roles have been strategically added to support our growth and the new strategic plan. Please join me in welcoming our new colleagues to the following teams:

New Instrument Acquisitions in the Materials Characterization Core 

In July, we took delivery of a new state-of-the-art scanning electron microscope (SEM) that is now installed in the Materials Characterization Core (MCC). The nearly $900K SEM was acquired through a successful NSF Major Research Instrument proposal led by Prof. Christopher Li (MSE) along with co-investigators Lin Han (Biomed), Craig Johnson (ORI/MCC), Vibha Kalra (CBE) and Marina Potapova (BEES/ANS). Unique features of the SEM will enable in situ experiments where samples are imaged while also being heated, cooled, deformed, or electrically biased. The instrument will advance research in many disciplines across the University ranging from materials development for next-generation batteries to the study of rare samples from the historic collections of the Academy of Natural Sciences. The new instrument is being brought online presently under the leadership of Dr. Kate Vanderburgh (MCC) and will be made available for use in the coming months. You can follow the installation and see images from the new microscope on the MCC Instagram @drexelmcc.

In August, we received word that another NSF Major Research Instrument grant was awarded that will place a new high-solution 3D X-ray tomography microscope (also known as microCT or nanoCT) in the Materials Characterization Core early next year. The proposal was led by Prof. Antonios Kontsos (MEM) along with co-investigators Antonios Zavaliangos (MSE), Kara Spiller (Biomed), Jocelyn Sessa (BEES/ANS), and Craig Johnson (ORI/MCC). The nanoCT works like a CAT scan machine used for medical imaging in that it takes X-ray images of a sample from many different angles and combines those images into a 3D image of the internal structure of the sample. However, the nanoCT has orders of magnitude higher resolution than a typical CAT scan device and is used to look at nanoscale features in smaller volumes (and non-living materials). Like the SEM, the nanoCT will support a broad spectrum of research relying on accurate 3D characterization novel additive manufactured materials critical for aerospace, automotive, defense and medical applications, cell structures and tissues used in immune system, tissue repair and bioengineering research, pharmaceutical materials, materials for energy applications including novel batteries and energy storage devices, and natural materials and organisms used in climate and earth sciences research. The instrument will be one of only a small number of similarly powerful systems across the country and raise the profile of Drexel and the MCC as a regional resource for advanced instrumentation.

Facilities & Administration Cost Recovery: Explained

Did you know that, in contrast to tuition, Drexel’s F&A cost recovery is not revenue but a repayment of costs already sustained?

Every sponsored project/program has both Direct and Indirect costs. 
The federal government has established what costs may be charged as direct costs and what costs are considered included in indirect costs.

Direct costs are those costs that can be identified specifically with a particular sponsored project, instruction, other sponsored activity or other institutional activity relatively easily with a high degree of accuracy.  

The terms “Facilities & Administrative Costs," "F&A costs" "Indirect Costs," “IDCs” and "overhead" are often used interchangeably. The F&A (Facilities & Administrative) rate agreement is set by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
F&A cost recovery is a reimbursement of expenditures to cover some portion of the Indirect (F&A) costs incurred as a function of completing a research award. 

A comprehensive definition of Direct and Indirect (F&A) costs be found at the U.S. Government Publishing Office website, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards issued by the Office of Management and Budget (Uniform Guidance). 
CFR §200.413 Direct costs. 
CFR §200.414 Indirect (F&A) costs.

Manufacturing PA Innovation Program Request for Proposals

The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) established the Manufacturing PA Innovation Program to leverage the internationally acclaimed science and engineering talent and discovery capacity of Pennsylvania’s institutions of higher education to ensure that Pennsylvania remains a national and international leader in manufacturing and achieves the full economic potential for high-paying manufacturing jobs. 

A main component of the Manufacturing PA Innovation Program is the PA Manufacturing Fellows Initiative (PMFI). 
This initiative supports manufacturing research collaborations between accredited PA colleges/universities and PA manufacturers. 
The goal of the program is to enable these institutions to seamlessly bring their capabilities to bear to support industrial innovation and position the Commonwealth at the forefront of the next wave of manufacturing.

DCED began soliciting proposals September 12, 2022 and will accept through November 7, 2022 at 5:00 pm from faculty Principal Investigators (PI) at any accredited PA college/university for projects that fit within the Innovation Program mission and program guidelines.
In this cycle, approximately $1,900,000 may be made available for research projects.   

A faculty member may only submit one proposal as the PI but may serve as a Co-PI on other proposals.  

Proposals must include a PA industry partner. Please note that companies may serve as project partners, but they may not receive state funding.
