Seminars/Presentations

  • When: Nov 20 2018 - 10:00am

    Location: Williamson Room 372

    Description: SYNERGY Imaging Sciences, fMRI Brain Imaging Didactic

    The Brain Imaging Lab/SYNERGY Imaging Sciences Group is hosting an Imaging Didactic series on Fridays from September 7 through November. Anyone with an interest in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is welcome to attend. An RSVP is recommended to ensure receiving scheduling updates and other notices.
    All sessions will be held in DHMC Williamson room 372, Tuesdays at 10:00 to 11:00 am, unless otherwise noted.
    Sessions are taught by Jamie Ford, PhD, unless otherwise noted.

    A tentative program, to be adjusted based on input from the participants, follows. PROGRAM
    [9 Aug: Introduction to topics, MRI/fMRI overview]
    Note from instructor Jamie Ford: If anyone wants to join, but missed the August 9 overview, I can schedule a repeat session, or the slides are available. While not strictly necessary (it is redundant with content in the rest of the series), we have found that this summary helps many people by providing a conceptual framework for the pieces that follow. Email Jamie Ford, PhD for information, slides and to reserve space.

  • When: Dec 3 2018 - 5:00pm

    Location: Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center conference rooms

    Description:

    Are you planning on applying for a pilot grant?
    Do you need help framing your research question and defining your plans?


    The goal of the Research Development Workshop is to guide investigators new to research in the development of their Specific Aims for a grant funding application. Investigators will also be prepared to apply for other SYNERGY educational and career development opportunities.

    WHAT: A four-session tutorial on developing your clinical translational research project aims.

    WHEN: Four Wednesday evenings in March, 4:00 - 6:00 pm (Dates: March 6, 13, 20 and 27, 2019)

  • When: Dec 13 2018 - 8:30am

    Location: Dartmouth campus (Hanover), The Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center, Oopik Auditorium (room 100)

    Description: This comprehensive, all-day presentation addresses both practical and conceptual aspects of writing NIH research grant and fellowship applications. It is appropriate for faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. Dr. Robertson will spend time focusing on writing a Specific Aims page, along with the research strategy. An emphasis is given to doing the “extra” things that can make the difference between success and failure.

    All participants will receive an extensive handout, as well as a copy of “The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook” (NIH version).

    To register please email: Grant.Proposal.Support@dartmouth.edu indicating your primary department and title.

    Registration deadline: Friday, November 16, 2018.

    NOTE: This is the first of two NIH grant-writing seminars being offered on successive days (December 13th and 14th).
    Dec 14th workshop: Write Winning NIH CDA Proposals

  • When: Dec 14 2018 - 8:30am

    Location: Dartmouth campus (Hanover), The Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center, Room 201

    Description: This half-day seminar is for Career Development Award (CDA) candidates and their mentors. It emphasizes the partnering between candidate, mentor and institution that is necessary to make these proposals successful, resulting in protected time for research. The National Institutes of Health’s mentored K Awards, and F32 National Research Service Award for individual post-doctoral fellows, are used as representative applications; the principles and fundamentals learned are transposable to the CDAs of other agencies – only the specifics vary.

    Content of the seminar includes tips and strategies on getting reference letters; selecting and getting the most from a mentor; how review criteria can be used to inform the writing of a CDA; the kinds of research and training that should be proposed, and much, much more.

    NOTE: If you haven’t previously attended the “Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals” seminar, you are strongly encouraged to attend the all-day seminar on Thursday, December 13, 2018. See https://synergy.dartmouth.edu/Write-Winning-NIH-Grant-Proposals for information and to sign up for the Dec 13 seminar. All participants will receive an extensive handout, as well as a copy of “The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook” (NIH version).

    To register please email: Grant.Proposal.Support@dartmouth.edu indicating your primary department and title.

    Registration deadline: Friday, November 16, 2018.
