R00 Panel Discussion: The NIH Pathway to Independence Award

Date: - April 26, 2017
Time: - Noon - 1:00 PM
Location: -TBD

Registration: - TBD

Known as the Pathway to Independence award, the NIH’s K99/R00 transitional award is designed to facilitate a postdoc’s ability to transition to an independent scientist role earlier in his or her career. At this event we will hear from three current Brown faculty members who have done just that--earned K99/R00 awards and landed faculty positions. If you are a graduate student or postdoc who is interested in learning more about this award, don’t miss this event! Pizza will be served; sign up here to let us know you’re interested in attending and to submit questions to the panel.

Note: If there is inclement weather and the University is closed, any event listed will be cancelled, and possibly rescheduled at a later date. Call the Brown Snow Line at 863-3111 for further information, or listen to local school closings.
