Calling all postdoctorals, new faculty, and junior faculty! Are you looking for funding for research training, career development, or your first research project grant? Do you need a little advice on how to do that? Then this is the workshop for you! Program and Review staff from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), one of the NIH's 27 Institutes and Centers, are hosting this informational workshop as an opportunity for early career investigators to learn about NIH and the grants process. Attendance at this workshop should give you insight as to the most appropriate funding opportunity for your career stage, and how to apply for it. This workshop will focus on mentored awards (F32, K01, K08, K23, K99) and independent research grants (R01, R21, R03, DP1) and provide insight into the review of these applications. You will learn how to find a program officer, understand peer review, and the two-tiered review process. There will be a single session, beginning at 6:30 p.m., with brief presentations and plenty of time to meet directly with NIDA staff and to ask those burning questions.
