• NIH Pain Consortium Webinar on Institutional Training Grants

    The NIH Pain Consortium webinar series on NIH grant mechanisms in pain research across career stages (training, transition, and independent stages) will have its next session on July 8. 

    The fourth webinar will be held on July 8th, 2021, from 3:00pm-4:15 (U.S. Eastern time), and will focus on Institutional Training Grants.  The goal of this session is to provide an overview of how to write a strong institutional training grant (e.g., T32 grants), including the purpose of these program, eligibility, application process, and application review criteria.

    Primary Target Audience: Mid to Late Career Investigators applying for Institutional Training Grants

    Secondary Target Audience: Early career investigators/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 [] for those who are unable to participate live and for future reference.

    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.
