Divider Rule Focus On... ACTSI KL2 & K12-BIRCWH Programs

Focus On...    

The following was brought to our attention by Hank Blumberg...

Are you interested in applying for one of the two following career development awards (due March 1) that are targeting junior faculty interested in research careers?

  1. ACTSI KL2: Mentored Clinical and Translational Research Scholars award
  2. BIRCHWH K12: Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health

If yes, you are strongly recommended to attend a two-class grant writing workshop series (2 hours per session) that is designed to provide in-depth instruction in how to write these specialized applications.

The workshop will include didactic presentations, discussion, and Q&A. Participants will receive access to examples of successful ACTSI KL2 and BIRCWH K12 applications and hands-on guidance for completing the various application sections, including the new NIH biosketch format.

Significant time will be devoted to the overall strategy for preparing a successful ACTSI KL2 or BIRCWH K12 application. Specifically, it will address how to develop a strong "Future Plans for NIH Research" statement, writing a strong specific aims page, and presenting an appropriate and compelling mentoring team and career development plan.

Those who attend the full series will be eligible for up to 5 hours of individual (one on one) grant writing consultation on their application.

Who should attend?
This free, no credit series is open to all individuals who are eligible to apply for these awards. See eligibility at the ACTSI KL2 and BIRCWH K12 websites.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Please note that according to NIH rules, you cannot submit an institutional K (e.g., KL2 or K12) AND an NIH K-series (e.g., K23, K01, K08) application for the same review cycle. In addition, NIH requires that all applicants are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

How to apply:
Email Dr. Janet Gross (jsgros2@emory.edu) and Cheryl Sroka (csroka@emory.edu) the information listed below. If applying for the BIRCWH K12, also copy Brittney Copeland (bcopel3@emory.edu):

  • Your name, position, department, school
  • Title of your research study (draft is ok)
  • Latest version of your NIH biosketch (Forms Version D)

Questions?
• ACTSI KL2: Contact Cheryl Sroka (csroka@emory.edu or 404.727.5096)
• BIRCWH K12: Contact Brittney Copeland (bcopel3@emory.edu).
