NIH F32 Awards: Perspectives from Awardees
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 join us to hear from a panel of Duke postdocs who have successfully applied for the F32 Award. Panelists will discuss their personal experience applying for an F32, the awards process, finding support, and tips for success (or failure and then success, in the case of those who applied more than once!)
