  • NRSA Fellowship (F) Award Mechanisms Webinar on May 13

    The NIH Pain Consortium has recently developed a webinar series on NIH grant mechanisms in pain research across career stages (training, transition and independent stages).

    The second webinar will be held on May 13, 2021, from 3:00pm-4:15 (U.S. Eastern time), and will focus on NRSA Fellowship (F) Award Mechanisms.  The goal of this session is to provide an overview of Individual NRSA Fellowships (F30, F31, F32 awards) and Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transitions (F99/K00 awards), including the purpose of these programs, eligibility, application process, and application review criteria. The presentation will also navigate through the process of finding accurate & updated information on funding opportunities, policies, NIH Institution/Center-specific program requirements, and on how & when to contact and communicate with NIH program officials regarding your fellowship grant applications.

    Primary Target Audience: Predoctoral (both graduate and dual-degree programs) and Postdoctoral Trainees

    Secondary Target Audience: Faculties and Mentors of Trainees

    There is no cost for these webinars, but attendees must register in advance. The link to register can be found here. You may choose to register for any one of the sessions at this time, but we will also send out reminders as each one approaches.

    The webinars will be recorded and after each one concludes it will be posted on the NIH Pain Consortium Website [https://www.painconsortium.nih.gov/meetings-events/seminars-workshops/nih-pain-consortium-grant-mechanism-webinar-series] for those who are unable to participate live and for future reference.

  • NIH Pain Consortium: Grant Mechanism Webinar Series

    We are reaching out to announce that the NIH Pain Consortium has developed a webinar series on NIH grant mechanisms in pain research across career stages (training, transition and independent stages).

    The first webinar will be held on April 8, 2021, from 3:00pm-4:15 (U.S. Eastern time), and will focus on clinical mentoring grants. There will be nine more webinars on other grant types held over subsequent months; please see the schedule in the registration link or at the end of this email for the full list of topics and dates.

    The goal of this webinar series is to inform the pain research community of funding opportunities and other resources provided by the NIH. Each webinar will cover information on specific types of grant mechanisms and funding opportunities at individual career stages.

    Each webinar will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, and will consist of recorded presentations on specific types of grant mechanisms followed by a live question and answer session. NIH program staff from multiple NIH institutes and centers participating in the NIH Pain Consortium will be available for discussion and answering specific questions.    

    There is no cost for these webinars, but attendees must register in advance. The link to register can be found here. You may choose to register for any one of the sessions at this time, but we will also send out reminders as each one approaches.

    The webinars will be recorded and after each one concludes it will be posted on the NIH Pain Consortium Website [https://www.painconsortium.nih.gov/] for those who are unable to participate live and for future reference.

    Please consider joining us to learn about the wide range of training and funding opportunities in pain research available from NIH, as well as policies and procedures on application preparation, submission, selection and award processes, and post-award monitoring/reviews.

    If you have any questions about these webinars, please feel free to contact one of the program directors listed below. We look forward to your participation.
