Learn How to Plan Community-Based Participatory Research Partnerships at New Workshop

Community and academic research partners are invited to a new workshop for those who are planning a small-scale research project using a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach. The free workshop will provide participants with knowledge about applying CBPR principles in the early stages of forming a research partnership, and share grant writing strategies for developing a successful pilot grant application for MICHR’s Translational Science Award.

Participants will have an opportunity to receive feedback about their research and partnership plans, and are encouraged to bring any materials that might be useful in describing their project idea.

This workshop is offered by the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) in collaboration with the Detroit Community Academic Urban Research Center.

DATE: January 17, 2017 from 10 a.m. - noon (Registration will close on January 16 or when capacity is reached)
LOCATION: University of Michigan, North Campus Research Complex (1600 Huron Parkway, Ann Arbor)

Please note that this workshop is specifically intended to support community and academic partners who are interested in applying for funding through MICHR’s Translational Science Award within the CBPR approach category. MICHR also encourages applications using other approaches, including investigator-initiated and collaborative research. More information about the different approaches that MICHR funds is available here.. Applications for MICHR’s next round of funding for this award will be due February 15, 2017 at 5 p.m.
