WATCH THE VIDEOS; Recorded July 29, 2015
A key step in establishing an academic career is the successful transition from post-doc or fellow training to the first faculty position. This workshop will enable fellows and young investigators to understand the different K award grant mechanisms and will provide strategies to optimize funding probability, in order to successfully complete the challenging transition to established investigator. This seminar is timely for trainees interested in submitting an application and for potential mentors. Dr. Mark Roltsch, a former NHLBI Program Officer and Scientific Review Officer, will share his insight from years of career development awards review and program management as well as his knowledge of the internal workings of NIH grants for young investigators to enhance their knowledge of what is needed to write a successful career development grant and how to avoid common pitfalls.
