Diversity Grant Awards/Diversity Supplement Workshop
February 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The UNC Lineberger Cancer Research and Career Enhancement Core in conjunction with the UNC Lineberger Equity Council is offering a free Zoom workshop on the planning and submission of NCI individual trainee applications, such as the F31, K01 and K08, for underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities (UREM) pre-doctoral, post-doctoral and clinical fellows.
The workshop on Monday, Feb. 8, 12-1 p.m., will also cover the planning and submission of diversity supplements for principal investigators of existing grants awards such as R01, P01 and P50. Dr. Alison Lin, deputy chief of the Diversity Training Branch at the NIH/NCI Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities, will give an overview of the award mechanisms offered by NCI as well as some tips on preparing a strong application. Her presentation will be followed by a panel, consisting of Dr. Lin and UNC investigators who have received one of these awards, to answer your questions.
The goal of the workshop is to increase the number of URM trainees within UNC Lineberger who receive extramural support for their research studies. Please register to attend the workshop. Please contact Bernard Weissman, associate co-director of Education and Training (email@example.com), or Julie Trollinger, administrative support associate, Cancer Research Career Enhancement Core (firstname.lastname@example.org), for additional information or questions.
