Nebraska researchers for whom the National Institutes of Health are a primary funding target should plan to attend an April 19 “beyond the basics” workshop. Registration is due April 13.

“Up your NIH Grant-seeking Game” is 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Room 169, Ken Morrison Life Sciences Research Center, 4240 Fair St.

Norm Braveman, founder and president of Braveman BioMed Consultants LLC and former NIH senior staff member, will share an approach to maximizing funding potential while incorporating grant proposal writing into an academic career.

His daylong workshop will focus on a number of topics, including: grant proposal writing in the academic context, knowing your benefactor, understanding the peer review process at NIH and maximizing your success by taking a strategic approach to grant writing.

Braveman made numerous contributions at NIH during a 30-year career. These include leading peer review of investigator-initiated clinical trials with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute; extramural science program development with the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research; and agencywide science program planning and evaluation in the Office of the Director.

The workshop is free and open to Nebraska faculty, but seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-seated basis. A complimentary networking lunch is included.

For additional information contact Nathan Meier, assistant vice chancellor for research, 402-472-3902.
