R2G2: What to Say to Program Officers

Durand 023

Contacting the NIH, NSF, or DOD can seem intimidating but Program Officers at these agencies can help you gain a better understanding of the sponsor’s needs and how your research can best support it. At this R2G2 session, program officers from the NIH, DOD and NSF will describe their respective roles and how they help junior faculty succeed. Stanford faculty will highlight best practices and answer questions about strategies for contacting Program Officers.


Route to Getting Grants (R2G2) - is a monthly seminar series specially designed for junior faculty across the sciences, including medicine, biosciences, engineering, natural and social sciences. These sessions will cover all aspects of grant writing, delivered through panel sessions, workshops and focused talks. R2G2 will also provide unique networking opportunities, enabling cross faculty collaborations and multidisciplinary partnerships. R2G2 will ensure that junior faculty have all the tools and strategies to lead them to grant success and on to independent research careers.
