How the F32 and K99/R00 Awards Have Helped Shape My Career
Diego V. Bohórquez, PhD, is Assistant Professor of GI and Neurobiology in the Duke Department of Medicine (gutbrains.com). He is a gut-brain neuroscientist whose focus is to unveil how the brain perceives what the gut feels, how food in the intestine is sensed by our body, and how a sensory signal from a nutrient is transformed into an electrical signal that alters behavior.
As a Duke postdoc, Dr Bohórquez successfully applied for both the NIH F32 and K99/R00 awards. He will discuss how the awards have shaped his career, and give advice on how current Duke postdocs can successfully apply for these awards.
