R2G2: Pitching Your ideas
October 4, 2018
Lunch available at 11:45 am; Presentation to follow at noon-1 pm
The Route to Getting Grants (R2G2) series will resume on Thursday 4th October 2018 in Durand 450, with talks about ‘Pitching Your ideas’ from Professor Tom Clandinin (Neurobiology) and Associate Professor Elizabeth Sattely (Chemical Engineering). Both speakers will address challenges such as how to frame your research question, how to ensure you have the right size project and how not to over promise and under deliver. In addition they will provide insight into how to tailor your grant for the specific funding agency and announcement and how best to sell yourself and your skills. There will also be time for questions to the speakers.
Professor Tom Clandinin is the Shooter Family Professor and his research aims to uncover fundamental new insights into the molecular mechanisms and functional consequences of neurodegenerative diseases. He has successfully obtained research grants from the NIH, NSF and various foundations.
Associate Professor Elizabeth Sattely‘s research uses a multidisciplinary approach combining chemistry, enzymology, genetics, and metabolomics to provide sustainable biofuel feedstocks, protect crops from pathogens, and discover new natural-product based therapeutics for human disease. She has been awarded grants from multiple agencies, including NIH, DoE and DOI.
Route to Getting Grants (R2G2) is a seminar series specially designed for junior faculty (target audience is Instructors or Faculty). Sessions cover all aspects of grant writing, delivered through panel sessions, workshops and focused talks. R2G2 will also provide unique networking opportunities, enabling cross faculty collaborations and multidisciplinary partnerships. R2G2 ensures that junior faculty have all the tools and strategies to lead them to grant success and on to independent research careers.
Jointly sponsored by Stanford Medicine’s Office of Faculty Development and Diversity, the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute, Stanford EARTH, and School of Engineering Research Administration.
