Consider applying to serve on the Study Team Workforce Development Working Group (The Working Group) to share your knowledge, experience, and skills related to study team training and education at the University of Michigan. The group is organized by the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR).
Are you interested in positioning your interdisciplinary research team to be competitive for an external multi-component NIH large-scale grant (i.e., U- and P-series mechanisms)? Do you need funds to pursue final data collection/analysis, to publish with your collaborators, or to support resources for grant development? If so, you are encouraged to apply for the Accelerating Synergy Award through the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR).
This session outlines the process of obtaining valid informed consent and will give you the opportunity to demonstrate necessary language and communication skills when interacting with potential study participants and their families.
I was finding research funding options to be very complicated and confusing, until I stumbled upon the MICHR webpage… cue ray of light and angels singing. The resources on this page were exactly what I had been searching for.
That’s been really helpful, having outside observers really read through the grant and critique it. Sometimes on the departmental level it’s hard to get people to really read through a grant proposal thoroughly and the RDC is pretty great for that.
