Current grant funding

Greater Plains Collaborative (PCORI, Principal Investigator: Russ Waitman). The Greater Plains Collaborative (GPC) is a new network of 10 leading medical centers in 7 states committed to a shared vision of improving healthcare delivery through ongoing learning, adoption of evidence-based practices, and active research dissemination. Role: Consultant. I am funded at 25% effort through my independent consulting business starting in February 2016.

Completed research grants

Increasing HIV Screening in African American Churches. (R01 MH099981, Principal Investigator: Janette Berkley-Patton). The primary aim of the proposed study is to conduct a clustered, randomized community trial to fully test our culturally/religiously-tailored church-based HIV screening intervention against a standard information intervention on HIV screening rates at 6 and 12 months with adult AA church members and community members who use church outreach services. I was funded at 5% effort starting in July 2013 through January 2016, but had to and funding will continue and increase slightly through April 2018).

Role of cytochrome P450 in alcohol-mediated effects on antiretrovirals and HIV-1. (NIH R01 K2304028, Principal Investigator: Santosh Kumar). Our central hypothesis is that in monocytes/macrophages alcohol-mediated oxidative stress causes enhanced HIV-1 replication via pathways mediated through CYP2E1, and alcohol-mediated decrease in the efficacy of PIs and increase in PIs-mediated toxicity concurrent with increase in the rates of HIV-1 replication is directly mediated through CYP3A4. Role: Co-investigator. I was funded at 8% effort in the first year with increasing support in future years, but support was lost in July 2014 when the PI moved to a different institution.

HIV Testing in African American Churches. (NIH K01 MH082640, Principal Investigator: Janette Berkley-Patton). This Mentored Research Career Award provides support for Dr. Jannette Berkley-Patton to obtain the requisite training and expertise to develop and test a church-based intervention to increase HIV testing among African Americans. Role: Co-investigator. I was funded at 5% effort from April 2012 through July 2013.

Bayesian prediction for interim review of studies with slow patient accrual. (Intramural grant, Kansas University Cancer Center). Patient recruitment for medical research is a huge challenge, especially for cancer trials. Slow patient accrual leads to delays in the completion of the study, sample size shortfalls, or both. This can disrupt the risk/benefit ratio of a study, and raise serious ethical problems for Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) and Data Safety and Monitoring Boards (DSMBs). We wish to fundamentally change the way clinical trials are planned and monitored by providing a rigorous framework for accrual based on Bayesian principles. Accrual estimates depend largely on how much experience clinicians have had in running previous trials, and how similar the current trial is to those previous trials. The Bayesian method of eliciting prior distributions offers a major innovation to accrual because it provides a proven method for quantifying subjective experiences and opinions about accrual. Bayesian methods offer an additional innovation because they allow the combination of these subjective experiences and opinions with actual accrual data during the conduct of the trial to produce a continuously updated probability that a trial will finish within the proposed time frame with the required number of patients. (This grant was awarded in May 2013, but funds supporting salary costs for Dr. Simon were removed prior to approval.)

Ensuring Medication Safety in Pediatric Emergencies. (FDA U01 FD004249, Principal Investigator, Susan Rahman). In no other patient population is there more calculation and manipulation of drug doses than in children. The need to individualize pediatric doses introduces the potential for errors along the entire process of drug delivery from prescribing and transcribing the dose to diluting, compounding, dispensing and administering the final formulation. Consequently, dosing errors represent the most common type of medication error in children. Error rates in children are 3x more common than the corresponding rates in adults and in hospital settings the rate of medication errors on pediatric wards is second only to those in intensive care units. Despite the abundance of weight estimation strategies, there remains a critical need for methods that are accurate across a wide range of pediatric ages, weights, lengths, nationalities and body compositions. Consequently, we undertook the development and validation of a weight estimation method that incorporates surrogates for both stature and body habitus, requires no subjective assessment and performs robustly independently of age and length over a broad range of weights. Role: Consultant (September 2011 through September 2012).

Health Educators in the Emergency Department to Improve Sexual Health Care for Adolescents. (NIH KL2 RR033177 & UL1 RR033179, Principal Investigator: Melissa Miller). Our objective in this application is to develop an ED-based intervention for adolescents aged 14-19 years that will increase access to care, provide more timely detection of STIs and pregnancy, and ultimately reduce adolescents' risk for STIs and unintended pregnancies. Role: Consultant. I was funded at an hourly rate rather than percentage effort from August 2011 through July 2012.

CAM, Medical Service Utilization, and Quality of Care among Patients with Musculoskeletal Conditions (NIH R01 AT000891, Principal Investigator: Bill Lafferty). To inform health policy decision making at the individual and societal level by assessing the effect of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) provider use on three primary outcomes: costs, service utilization, and quality of care for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. I was funded at 25% effort from November 2010 to August 2011.

NDNQI Services Agreement Work Order No. 3 (Principal Investigator: Nancy Dunton). Funded by the American Nurses Association. The major goals of this project are to develop a method for unit-based acuity adjustment and to develop a method to calculate hospital level indicators. I was funded at 25% effort from February through April 2008.

Pediatric Pharmacology Research Unit (NIH U01 HD31313. Principal Investigator: Greg Kearns). Total direct costs of $361,932 in 2002. The major goal of this project is to conduct basic and translational research focusing on regulatory events in pharmacogenetics, the ontogeny of important drug metabolizing enzymes, and pharmacodynamics that will advance our understanding of age-related differences in drug disposition and action. I was funded at 3% effort from May 1996 to December 2003.

Sex, SLE, and Signal Transduction (R01 AR50878. Principal Investigator: Jill Jacobson). Total direct costs of $250,000 in 2002. The major goal of this project is to demonstrate that the increase in immune responsiveness to gonadotropin-releasing hormone in female mice plays a pivotal role in increased incidence of autoimmune disease. I was funded at 5% effort from December 2011 through November 2006.
