The Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) invites the research community to view a webinar series on funding opportunities in both research and career development. The first of these webinars “Funding Opportunities and Strategies for Success”, participants will learn how to find the latest CDMRP funding opportunities, how to navigate a program announcement (funding opportunity announcement), and use what they learn to create a competitive application. Over the next four months, webinars covering topics from innovative research applications to clinical research will be published.
The webinar schedule can be accessed at https://cdmrp.army.mil/pubs/Webinars/webinar_series. Topics for the series, which runs through May, include:
- Funding Opportunities and Strategies for Success
- High Risk/High Gain Funding Opportunities
