WRITING MENTORED NIH CAREER (K) AWARDS FOR EARLY STAGE INVESTIGATORS
TUESDAY, JULY 24 from 12-4 in DHMC Auditorium G, Rubin level 4.
NIH Career Development Awards (K awards) are among the most successful NIH programs and have helped launched the careers of many young investigators. The NIH-wide success rates for K awards are good, yet investigators often don’t understand which award is right for them and what's expected of them to secure an award.
In this 4-hour seminar, you will hear all about NIH Mentored K Awards, details of award types, content, and strategies for writing a highly competitive application.
You will hear from Dr. Jack Hoopes, who has served on various NIH Peer Review Panels for K awards. Find out what NIH looks for in a competitive application.
You will also hear from several different K award holders at Dartmouth who will tell what it took to get their awards.
Don't miss this seminar. It's invaluable advise for any early-stage or new investigator interested in a research career.
A light lunch is provided on a first-come basis. If you are planning to attend please RSVP to Andrea.M.Gilbert@dartmouth.edu.
The seminar will be presented by Dr. Christopher Dant at the NCCC and SYNERGY/TDI.
