The TSI and other departments within the Medical Center provide educational opportunities to assist investigators and research support personnel such as data collectors, study coordinators, project managers, program managers, and research nurses to continually improve their knowledge and skills.
The TSI and the Office of Faculty Development are co-sponsoring a K Award Writers' Series, a ten-session series from April until September designed for early career faculty who intend to submit or resubmit an NIH K Award within the next year. NIH K Awards provide the salary support, protection of time, mentoring, and skill development to achieve your research career goals. The series provides didactic instruction, personalized feedback, and a disciplined approach to the development of K award grant application. Ten faculty, post docs, and fellows are participating in the 2012 course. While the 2012 series is currently underway, we hope to offer another series beginning spring 2013. In the meantime, check out the Office of Research's K Award Toolkit.
Contact Lindsay Marion at 713-8126 for additional questions or to set up a training session.
