It is the beginning of the academic year and there are an overwhelming number of grant opportunities out there! How do you take back control and strategically plan out your grant applications for the year? This seminar will include a panel of faculty who will share their approaches to writing grant applications and provide various strategies that can be implemented for years to come!
About the speakers:
Anthony Ricci, PhD
Edward C. and Amy H. Sewall Professor in the School of Medicine | Professor of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS) and, by courtesy, Molecular and Cellular Physiology
Dr. Ricci has trained numerous students both medical and graduate. He has also trained postdocs and residents. Dr. Ricci served as the director of the Neuroscience Graduate Program at Stanford for almost 8 years. He was a co-founder and faculty lead of the ADVANCE Summer Institute, an onboarding program for incoming bioscience graduate students from underserved backgrounds. He is presently the faculty lead on a new postdoctoral fellows program, Propel, that targets scholars form underrepresented communities who are interested in academic careers. Dr. Ricci is part of the team that launched the new postbaccalaureate program REACH that provides a strong research based opportunity to scholars from underrepresented backgrounds interested in a research or medical career. Dr. Ricci is presently the Director of Research for the Department of Otolaryngology.
Joy Wu, MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)
Dr. Wu is Chief of the Division of Endocrinology, Gerontology and Metabolism and Vice Chair of Basic Science in the Department of Medicine at Stanford. She directs a broad basic and translational research program that focuses on skeletal development and the bone marrow hematopoietic niche. Her laboratory is currently studying stem cell therapies for bone formation, and the prevention of cancer metastases to bone (joywulab.stanford.edu). She has been honored with awards from the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, the Endocrine Society, the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, and the Mary Kay Foundation, and she has served on the Board of Directors for the Endocrine Society. She is currently a member of the governing Council of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research.
Scott Owen, PhD
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, Neurobiology
Scott obtained his undergraduate training in Physics at Amherst College. He completed his PhD in Molecular and Cellular Physiology at Stanford University in the laboratory of Richard Tsien, where he identified a novel synaptic mechanism through which the Autism-linked peptide oxytocin sharpens local circuit function in the hippocampus. In his post-doctoral work with Dr Anatol Kreitzer at the Gladstone Institutes and UCSF, Scott integrated in vivo and ex vivo physiology with novel imaging and behavioral approaches to determine how local microcircuits in the basal ganglia improve learning of complex behaviors. Scott is passionate about integrating mechanistic studies in model systems with direct investigation of cells, synapses, and circuits in the human brain, to deepen our understanding of human brain function and to improve the translation of treatments for neurological disease from the lab to the clinic.
Route to Getting Grants (R2G2) is specially designed for junior faculty at Stanford. Sessions cover all aspects of grant writing, delivered through panel sessions, workshops and focused talks. R2G2 also provides 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.
