Members of the U-M community who are involved in or interested in mentoring are invited to a November 29 forum on Culturally Aware Mentorship. During the forum, seven faculty members who contribute enormously to the research environment at U-M will be honored with the 2018 Distinguished Clinical and Translational Research Mentor Award.
Are you interested in positioning your interdisciplinary research team to be competitive for an external large-scale grant (i.e., NIH U- and P-series)? 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.
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.
