      Edgeforscholars.org: Conveying Institutional Support

      Conveying Institutional Support edgeforscholars.org Grant reviewers want to invest in success. If you’re applying for a career development award, you must convey the support of your institution. If your chair doesn’t want to invest in you, why should the NIH or other funding agencies? Dr. Nancy J. Brown, chair of the Department of Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and author of hundreds of letters of institutional support, recently shared her top suggestions for crafting a letter that shows your department chair is invested in your success. (And yes, you will be drafting these letters.) The Kiss of Death. Never,…

      Edgeforscholars.org: Not that Kind of Selection – Tales of Picking Which Grants to Write

      Not that Kind of Selection: Tales of Picking Which Grants to Write edgeforscholars.org In my last post, I blogged about the different types of grants that are available to early stage investigators (ESIs) and the benefits of these awards. If you are like me, you were overwhelmed when you saw the list the first time. There are too many grants to write as a new principal investigator (PI), so I have developed a series of questions that helps me decide which ones to pick. As always these days, n=me. The caveats: I am a year and a half into a…

      3 Cavaliers grant program launched

      The 3 Cavaliers, or 3C, program will allow faculty members to connect and pursue new research with the potential for significant external funding. 3C is a connection point in a rapid seed funding program designed to enable creative, collaborative and consequential research. The program supports groups of three faculty members from at least two disparate disciplines, located in different units or schools, to explore creative, high-risk, high-payoff research ideas that might not yet be ready for more traditional funding. Investigators triads can request a total of $60K or $15K. Tenure track/tenured SOM faculty members can participate in forming a 3C…
