Where can I find a CDS event?
ITHS partners with several UW campus and WWAMI regional partners to ensure we reach and engage the translational workforce with each series. CDS events occur across the main UW campus, in the UW Medicine South Lake Union building, and are often captured on video and edited for online distribution to our regional partners. Many of our offerings are also broadcast live as webinars to allow for flexible viewing opportunities. Check out the calendar for specific upcoming event topics and locations.
What happens to your grant once it gets to a study section? During this session, Dr. Paul Martin leverages his experience as a seasoned NIH grant reviewer, including his tenure as Chair of the Cancer Immunopathology and Immunotherapy Study Section, to provide insight into the workings of NIH study sections.
Dr. Martin discusses the fundamentals of grant review, including an overview of study sections, and grant scoring. The likelihood of a successful grant application is increased by a thorough understanding of the review process.
