Training in Grantsmanship for Rehabilitation Research Workshop

Training in Grantsmanship for Rehabilitation Research (TIGRR), an intensive grant writing workshop that builds upon the successful model used by the Enhancing Rehabilitation Research in the South (ERRIS) workshops, will be held January 15-19, 2013 in Chapel Hill. The target audience for this workshop includes junior and mid-level faculty in all rehabilitation research disciplines who are on the cusp of success in NIH-funded or similar research but could benefit from expert mentorship in grant development.

Unlike passive seminars on grant writing, selected mentees will come prepared to complete at least the specific aims for a grant proposal for submission to the NIH or other funding agency. This offering is based upon a 10-year history of successfully providing mentorship to approximately 300 Junior and mid-level faculty from throughout the North America and in several foreign countries. The TIGRR Academic Mentors and Leadership Team includes Richard Segal, PT, PhD, FAPTA, (UNC Chapel Hill), Daniel M. Corcos, PhD (University of Illinois Chicago), and William Z. Rymer, MD, PhD (Northwestern University).
