ORE’s NIH Open House a Success Despite Winter Weather
On Wednesday, February 18, the Office of Research and Engagement hosted the UT NIH Research Community Open House. Despite the snow and ice, 55 Community members were able to attend, with faculty representation from the Institute of Agriculture, the Graduate School of Medicine, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in addition to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
UT NIH Research Community Open House
The Office of Research and Engagement will host an Open House Wednesday, February 18 at Blount Hall, Room A004 to celebrate and promote the new UT NIH Research Community forum. This will be open to all UT Knoxville faculty and staff, and we encourage our collaborators from across the UT System and from ORNL to join as well.
ORE Creates NIH Research Community Forum
The Office of Research and Engagement has announced a new opportunity for faculty, staff, and students interested in health-related research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The UT NIH Research Community listserv (NIH@listserv.utk.edu) is a new forum to share NIH news and announcements, to learn about funding opportunities, workshops, and speakers, to connect with potential collaborators across campus and beyond, and to crowdsource questions related to all aspects of the NIH grant process—from proposal development to the application and review process to post-award management. This is intended to be deeper than a one-way flow of information from ORE; we chose the word Community because our goal is to encourage, engage, and educate not only our researchers, but also those who are working together across campus at all levels to enable their success.
The Community will be managed by Jennifer Webster (865-974-2044 or firstname.lastname@example.org), who will serve as the new Research Development Team liaison for NIH opportunities. We invite all interested parties to contact her to be added to the Community, and to discuss your NIH research interests, needs, concerns, and aspirations.
