Duke Postdoc NIH F32 Grantsmanship Series

The Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards (NRSA F32) for Individual Postdoctoral Fellowships provides up to three years of support for promising postdocs who have the potential to become productive, independent investigators within the broad scope of biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research, and to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available to address the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. Please note that F32 awards are limited to US citizens and permanent residents.

In this seminar, Stephanie Freel, PhD, PMP, will give an overview of the F32 award mechanism, including positioning oneself for success, responding to core review criteria, and writing to promote a successful application.

SPEAKER: Stephanie Freel, PhD, PMP, is the Associate Director of Outreach and Mentorship in the Duke Office for Clinical Research (DOCR, ), where she oversees study planning, grant review, and mentorship programs for faculty, postdocs, fellows, residents, and study staff conducting clinical research. Previously, in the Office for Faculty Mentoring, she developed the K Club and Path to Independence Programs. Her work with NRSA applicants within the Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology, DHVI, and Radiation Oncology resulted in an 80% success rate with 4 first submission awards since 2012.
