Topic: PSTP Initial Meeting
The Lunch and Lecture Series
The Lunch and Lecture Series will invite Scholars to attend named lectureships hosted by Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences Departments in areas of their interest. Faculty members from the Department will have lunch with our group to discuss the contributions of the lecturer. Journal articles will be selected for in-depth review and discussion, and related work ongoing at JHUSOM will be described for the physician-scientists. The group will then attend the lecture.
The Directed Discussion Series
The Directed Discussion Series will invite Scholars to discussions with Professors and Directors of Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences Departments and Centers. Faculty will set discussion topic(s) and provide reading material in advance. These may include reviewing scientific advances where physician-scientists may be uniquely positioned to contribute, or discussing other trending fields.
JHUSOM PSTP Experiment Fund
Deadlines: Two cycles – Fall and Spring, specific deadlines to be posted
The PSTP funds small projects initiated by physician scientists in training. These microgrants of up to $5,000. are intended for small experiments and contracted services for producing preliminary data, conducting hypothesis-generating screens, or demonstrating feasibility. Projects should fall outside the scope of their mentor’s already funded research program. One page proposals are required.
E-mail your proposal to [email protected] on or before the deadline each Cycle. Use "PSTP experiment fund" in the subject line.
