OFDD offers workshops throughout the year on grant applications.
The K08 and K23 career development awards support mentored lab-based or patient-oriented research designed to foster the career development of young clinical investigators. They help transition from junior faculty to independent research-based academic positions. In 2013, the K award success rates were 25-35% across all institutes. Funding opportunities are often missed due to poor understanding of what is available and how the award can be secured.
Getting a NIH R01 or R21 grant application funded is a key aspect of promotion for many junior faculty. OFDD’s R01 Countdown is a 4-month program that provides detailed weekly instructor and small group feedback on junior faculty’s NIH R-series grant submissions.
The R2G2 is a seminar series specially designed for junior faculty. Sessions cover all aspects of grant writing, delivered through panel sessions, workshops and focused talks. R2G2 also provides networking opportunities, enabling cross faculty collaborations and multidisciplinary partnerships.
