LC 222 – Tulsa Campus

Although the NIH is the nation’s largest funder of biomedical and behavioral research, with a budget approaching $31B in FY2011, relatively few OU faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students have received NIH funding. In spite of NIH’s growing support for projects that explore the social and behavioral components of health, just 10% of OU’s current NIH awards are in the social sciences. This workshop is intended for all members of the OU community from any discipline, especially the social sciences. The workshop will provide an overview of NIH, including its organization, priorities, programs, funding mechanisms, and proposal guidelines. Participants will also learn about the NIH review process, including the new scoring system and the importance of study section selection. If you have never submitted a proposal to NIH, if you have had limited success with NIH funding, or if you have not submitted a proposal recently and need a refresher on the new guidelines, this workshop is for you.

The NIH Basics workshop will be presented at the OU-Tulsa campus and delivered to the Norman campus via videoconferencing. Space is limited – please register at: NO LATER THAN March 1, 2012.
