RSNA offers two Saturday workshops on grants this year: on becoming a better NIH grant reviewer and on writing NIH grant applications


RSNA/ARR Study Section Reviewers Workshop

Saturday, November 26, 2011 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.   McCormick Place
Course Code: SAT03
Fee: $35.00

The RSNA, in collaboration with the Academy for Radiology Research (ARR), is offering a workshop designed to provide information to radiologists and imaging scientists interested in serving as expert peer reviewers on NIH and other grant study sections. Although a significant amount of information is available on how the review process works, many investigators (new and experienced) have questions that are best answered in person by those who have first-hand experience. Attendees will be provided with a clearer understanding of the review process, enabling them to be better prepared to serve as reviewers on NIH Study Sections or other grant-review panels.

RSNA NIH Grantsmanship Workshop

Saturday, November 26, 2011 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.    McCormick Place
Course Code: SAT02
Fee: $35.00

The NIH Grantsmanship Workshop, sponsored by the Radiological Society of North America, will provide pertinent and current grant information and guides to writing a grant proposal for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Designed primarily for junior faculty in academic centers who wish to pursue a career in radiologic research, the workshop’s goal is to provide an introduction to writing a grant proposal for the NIH, specifically relating to the radiologic sciences. Participants will have the opportunity to experience a mock study section. Lee Rosen, PhD, from the National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute (NIH/NCI) will facilitate the workshop and will be joined by imaging scientists who have proven track records in grantsmanship and the review process.

 

Registration for either workshop is currently being accepted online at the RSNA 2011 meeting website, or by completing the Registration and Housing Form on page 46 of the Registration Brochure. Registration information for both courses can be found in the lower left-hand side of the form.
