NIH has opened their submission portal, ASSIST (Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking), for submission of R03 and R21 proposals. By the end of the year, NIH plans to have the ASSIST portal as a submission option for all proposal types. Join us for a training session to get an overview of the portal and learn the benefits of using ASSIST.
The Office of Research and Engagement will be hosting a webinar presented by Academic Research Funding Strategies, LLC, on how to write a successful proposal to NSF’s Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER).
Laboratory accidents are not only a threat to the safety of our students, faculty and staff, but the media exposure can be a threat to the reputation of an institution as well.
