CANCELED The Successful K08/K23: A Reviewer’s Perspective

LKSC 320

Offered by the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity

Instructor: Laure Aurelian, PhD (Stanford Medicine and University of Maryland at Baltimore)

The K career development awards support mentored lab-based or patient-oriented research designed to foster the career development of young investigators. They help transition from junior faculty positions to independent research-based academic positions. In 2017, the K award success rates ranged between 18-30% in different institutes. Funding opportunities are often missed due to poor understanding of what is available and how the award can be secured.


In this workshop, Dr. Aurelian will discuss the different programs, and how to develop the best match for you. She will explain the reviewers’ expectations and the most common misconceptions, provide an overview of the strategies to be used in order to write a competitive proposal and discuss a pilot program for one-on-one consultation to provide specific help, as needed.

Following the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing one-on-one consultation with Dr. Aurelian to provide specific help through the submission of the K award.
