We invite second & third year doctoral students and faculty mentors to join Research Resources, the Initiative for Minority Student Development, and the Mailman School Doctoral Committee for a Workshop on Developing Dissertation Grant Applications - The F31 and R36, Thursday September 14, 2017 (in SMS Conference Room 923, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM). This one session workshop moderated by Dr. Leslie Davidson, Professor of Epidemiology, is designed particularly for second and third year doctoral students planning to submit F31 or R36 applications to the NIH for dissertation training funding. The workshop will provide an overview of application requirements and will address elements important in developing a compelling application. It will provide useful information which will facilitate the work a student undertakes with his or her mentor to develop specific aims, a training program and the scientific narrative. Mentors are also welcome to attend. We will repeat the workshop in the Spring of 2018. Topics covered will include overview of the F31 and the R36s, developing specific aims, working with an NIH program officer, choosing a mentor, developing a training program and grantsmanship in making your application compelling.
