Please e-mail OFD@jhmi.edu and request to be added to a specific group.
These new K-groups will be peer-facilitated and social support - networking opportunities to discuss and share information on various topics as relevant; for example, developing a cohesive research plan, responding to grant reviewers, writing the research progress reports, hiring a Research Assistant, sharing research resources, identifying other funding, building a mentoring team, achieving work-life integration, preparing for the R application, IRB issues, getting publications out the door, getting promoted, etc.
If you are a succesful grant writer and/or currently serve on study sections and have a passion for helping junior faculty, you can get involved in two ways: (1) come and informally share (no powerpoints, just discussion) your advice with any of the groups, or (2) volunteer to periodically provide brief, bullet-point, e-mail reviews of specific aim pages. E-mail Dr. Kim Skarupski if you are interested.

This workshop is designed to assist faculty with applying for NIH or other peer-reviewed grants. The workshop consists of two parts: a one-day classroom session on followed by small discussion sessions.
The classroom session focuses on how to understand the NIH grant system, with a focus on using that knowledge to your advantage. This session covers types of grants; criteria for a "fundable" research problem; the NIH system of peer review; and sources of funding for new and early-stage investigators. It also addresses non-government funding sources. Participants learn how to develop a budget using the electronic submission process.
The second part of the workshop consists of small discussion sessions, during which participants carry out "mock reviews" of two critical components of a grant: the abstract and specific aims. Five days prior to their discussion session, participants submit a draft of their abstract and specific aims page. In addition to receiving a "mock review" of their Abstract and Specific Aims, participants receive feedback from the course director, Dr. Donna Vogel.
