The Research Career Award Writing Group ("K-Award Club" writing group), established in 2007, is co-lead by Drs. Doug Ziedonis and Sherry Pagoto. Most faculty who participate and apply for a research career award have been very successful in getting funded (>80% success). The Group meets monthly to provide information and feedback on academic career development and on preparing a Research Career Award application (NIH K Awards, VA Research Career Awards, CTSA K12 grants, etc.).
Sherry L. Pagoto, PhD
Douglas Ziedonis, MD, MPH

Of note, Mock Board Review sessions and review of prior grant applications / NIH review committee feedback are demonstrated for the group. In addition to Drs. Ziedonis and Pagoto, other outstanding senior mentors attend the meeting and provide additional information and perspectives, including Dr. Rob Milner from the UMMS Office of Faculty Affairs (OFA) who assures a close partnership with the OFA in providing additional supplementary information.
