URS Information Sessions on US National Institutes of Health (NIH) Programs 

 

There is growing interest in funding opportunities offered by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) at many Canadian universities, including Queen's. However, faculty often find navigating NIH programs difficult because: i) they are unclear how to successfully "pitch" their applications to NIH peer review panels; and ii) the NIH application requirements & submission processes differ significantly from CIHR's. To support Queen's researchers interested in NIH programs, URS is offering a two-part information series all about NIH funding opportunities.
 

To register for the sessions, please complete the online registration form (mandatory to participate).

 


 

All About NIH - Part 1: A PI's Perspective on Navigating NIH Programs 

May 31, 4:30-5:30 pm; Botterell Hall room B139

Summary: This session will consist of a moderated panel discussion with Queen's faculty members who have successfully obtained NIH funding. Panelists will offer their perspectives on successfully 'pitching' their projects to NIH and discuss some 'lessons learned' about the application process. Researchers at all career stages are invited to attend. 

Panelists:
  • Dr. Stephen Archer (Tier-1 CRC in Mitochondrial Dynamics & Translational Medicine; Head, Department of Medicine)
  • Dr. Curtis Nickel (Tier-1 CRC in Urologic Pain and Inflammation; Professor, Department of Urology)
Moderator: Dr. Kristina Arseneau (Research Projects Advisor, University Research Services)
 
 

 

All About NIH - Part 2: How to Find & Apply For NIH Funding Opportunities

 June 7, 3:00 - 4:00 pm; Botterell Hall room B139
 
Summary: This session will discuss fundamental points such as: finding NIH funding opportunities, understanding NIH application requirements, and submitting proposals online. The session will cover cases where a Queen's faculty member is the principal investigator and where they are a co-applicant on a grant led by another university. Researchers and research administrators at all career stages are invited to attend. 
 
Speaker: Dr. Kristina Arseneau (Research Projects Advisor, University Research Services)
