Research Career & Writing Group "K-Club"

Research Career & Writing Group "K-Club"

The UMCCTS Research Career & Writing Group (K-Club) was established in 2007. Most individuals who participate and apply for a research career award have been very successful in getting funded (>80% success). K-Club meets every other week 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 K grants, etc.).

Participants will receive:

  • Feedback on CV development
  • Help on preparing NIH biosketches
  • Support on creating yearly career development plans
  • Individualized help on developing career goals and a program of research
  • Support with writing the career development grant application
  • Guidance on selecting and working with primary and secondary mentors (if needed)

Of note, Mock Board Review sessions and review of prior grant applications / NIH review committee feedback are available. Outstanding senior mentors, including Drs. Nancy Byatt, Mihaela Stefan, and Ekaterina Pivovarova attend the meetings and provide complementary information and perspectives.

** Meetings are held every other week on Wednesday from 4-5PM.
