Research Studios

The Great Plains IDeA-CTR is offering Research Studios for junior investigators who would like to discuss proposed research projects with a team of experts. These 60-minute sessions are intended to help investigators refine proposals, manuscripts, and implementation approaches. A studio typically consists of 4 to 6 experienced faculty selected to participate in a mentoring / review session based on specific areas of research and needs identified by the junior investigator. Those eligible include faculty from participating Great Plains IDeA-CTR institutions (including UNMC) who are not full professors.

We offer 3 types of studios: 1) aims page review and refinement; 2) grant review before submission (simulated mock NIH review); and 3) brainstorming session for investigators who have hit a funding roadblock (this latter option may be particularly helpful in identifying appropriate collaborators).

Interested faculty can submit their request for a studio here. Additional information about these sessions can be found on our website, here. For question, contact Heather Braddock at or 402-559-9870.
