The Kentucky IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (KY INBRE) will again offer an intensive workshop on the development of National Institutes of Health (NIH) R15-Research Enhancement Award (REA) and NIH R16-Support for Research Excellence (SuRE) proposals. Both programs have similar goals of supporting meritorious research, exposing undergraduate students to research, and enhancing the research environment of the institution. Institutions eligible for the R15 program must not have received more than $6 million in NIH funding in four of the past seven years. The R16 program also targets institutions which have received limited NIH funding, but also serve an economically disadvantaged and/or minority student population. Nearly all primarily undergraduate institutions in Kentucky are eligible for these awards.
This all day workshop will cover all aspects of writing a successful NIH proposal. Faculty with little or no experience in writing R15 or R16 NIH proposals should plan to participate in all sessions. Whereas, those with prior NIH grant writing experience may choose to participate in only the more advanced sessions.
The workshop will be led by faculty and professional proposal development staff at Kentucky institutions that have been successful in competing for R15-REA and/or R16-SuRE grants.
Past attendees at this workshop have been successful in obtaining NIH funding, and this workshop is required to be eligible to apply for KY INBRE research grants (updated opportunities links coming soon).
The workshop will be conducted via Zoom and is free and open to interested faculty at all Kentucky public and private institutions.
Please register by Monday, October 16. Meeting link will be emailed to registrants after registration closes.
For registration information contact, Dr. Whitney Rogers, Program Director, email, or (502) 852-3045.
For additional workshop information, contact Dr. Bruce Mattingly, KY INBRE program coordinator and Director of the KY INBRE Developmental Research Program Core (email).
This workshop is sponsored by the Kentucky IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (KY-INBRE), which is supported by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (P20 GM103436) of the National Institutes of Health.
