UNMC provides a wide range of postdoctoral training opportunities in different areas of biomedical sciences including: cancer biology, nano and regenerative medicine, with an emphasis on translational research.

On Thursday, February 21st, we will be welcoming Hanover Research to the College of Medicine for a special Grantsmanship Workshop. This free workshop is open to all College of Medicine faculty members, trainees, students, and staff. Please see the attached flyer for details, and please distribute to all whom you think could benefit.

Hanover Research is a grant development firm headquartered in Washington D.C. whose grant professionals have more than 150 years of grantsmanship experience that cuts across a wide range of federal agencies and foundations. Hanover will be conducting three sessions intended to 1) introduce faculty to the R01 research mechanism; 2) discuss NIH’s Rigor and Reproducibility standards; and 3) discuss diversifying funding beyond the R01. During these workshops, participants will also learn more about the College of Medicine’s partnership with Hanover Research, which was established to provided targeted proposal development support to faculty investigators.

This workshop is an excellent opportunity for investigators at all stages in their careers to learn how to take a strategic approach toward research funding. In addition, individual consultations are available in the afternoon by appointment. To obtain an appointment, please email Jenny Brady at jenny.brady@unmc.edu.
