    Location: DHMC, Auditorium G

    Description: Finding the appropriate NIH program and grant mechanism for your research idea requires a lot of up-front preparation! However, when developing their first grant, many early-stage and new investigators make the critical mistake of writing before they first develop their research idea that can increase their chances of being funded. In this seminar, we discuss how to develop research ideas NIH institutes are seeking to fund. We show NIH RePorter search strategies that can determine what NIH has funded, what NIH Request for Application (RFAs) and Program Announcements (PAs) tell you, and how to find specific institute mission/funding priorities. These strategies will prepare you to write a grant that targets research ideas that address specific NIH institute missions and priorities, which will increase your chances of being funded.

    Location: DHMC, Auditorium H (in the new Williamson building)

    Description:

    As mentors for junior faculty researchers who aspire to become independent investigators, there are a number of challenges we all face whether we are basic scientists, clinical investigators or outcomes researchers. And, of course, most of the skills needed to be an effective research mentor are also useful when serving as a mentor within a clinical or educational context. Indeed, junior faculty research mentees, themselves, often serve as mentors to others in a variety of roles at Geisel and D-H. In other words, this meeting is open to anyone who might find it beneficial.

    Agenda:

  • When: Oct 21 2015 - 5:30pm

    Location: DHMC, Auditorium G

    Description:

    Writing a competitive and winning grant proposal requires that investigators produce a highly polished, cohesive grant that really knocks it out of the park for its significance, innovation, and approach while showing that it will have a major impact on their field. Many investigators, especially new investigators, don't know how to do this or understand what pitfalls to avoid. In this seminar, we will present a systematic approach for writing strong specific aims and research strategy. We will show some common mistakes investigators make in writing these critical sections that causes the grant to fail. We present advice on grant writing that is taken from the NIH as well as from faculty who have written successful grants and served as peer reviewers. This seminar is open to graduate students, postdocs, and basic/clinical researcher investigators.

    NOTE: These 2 seminars are part of the R Grantsmanship seminar--while you may sign up for one or the other, you are encouraged to attend both seminars.

    Live webcast will be available at http://video.hitchcock.org/livetcs2

    Description:

    Many scientists struggle with their writing. Learning to write clearly is one of the most important aspects of a scientist's career and yet research shows that many manuscripts and grants are unsuccessful partly because of a lack of clarity. In this seminar, we will examine the basis for unclear writing and offer ways scientists can improve their writing.

    Light lunch provided on a first-come basis.

    Location: DHMC, Auditorium H

    Description: NIH makes the peer-reviewed articles it funds publicly available on PubMed Central. The NIH public access policy requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication. Lack of compliance will result in a delay of your funding. In this Seminar we will talk about when to comply with this policy, how to successfully submit your article through the NIH Manuscript Submission system to PubMed Central, and how to obtain and document the PubMed Central ID (PMCID). Light lunch will be provided on a first-come basis.

    Location: 571 Williamson Translational Research Building

    Description:

    SYNERGY’s Center for Translational Population Research (CTPR) and The Dartmouth Institute (TDI) announce a special seminar highlighting an important research resource, the Atlas Rate Generator, on Friday, July 15th from 3-4pm in WTRB Room 571 E&W.

    The Atlas Rate Generator (ARG), available at: synergy.dartmouth.edu/ctpr, allows investigators to obtain cross-sectional rates of Medicare data efficiently, at a low cost, and in a timely manner. ARG “rate runs” are covered under the TDI’s existing CMS data use agreement and are run using sophisticated SAS code macros to efficiently produce cross-sectional overall and regional “Atlas” health services use rates. This makes the ARG an ideal resource for researchers and others needing to validate or pilot research hypotheses or for policymakers and media needing custom rate measurements. The seminar will be conducted by David Goodman, MD, MS, Professor of Pediatrics, of Community & Family Medicine and of The Dartmouth Institute. A co-PI of the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care, Dr. Goodman leads and mentors a wide range of projects investigating the causes and consequences of variation in health care capacity and utilization.

    Location: DHMC Auditorium G

    Description: The talk will illuminate how the availability of high-throughput technologies, the arrival of novel targeted and immunotherapies, and the application of integrative data analysis techniques are changing the way we treat cancer patients. With a particular focus on skin cancer (melanoma) treatment, the talk will show how an emerging data-driven molecular disease classification enables precise and patient-specific treatment decisions. It will also discuss the need to establish oncology learning networks that allow for the rapid exchange of clinical and genotypic information for continuous refinement of treatment models. The second part of the talk will examine the role of informatics in patient trajectory management that relies on sequential data analysis for studying patient journeys across health and disease states. Using trajectories derived from large claims databases, the talk will demonstrate the potential of the approach in managing patients with heart disease. The third part of the talk will highlight the emerging role of informatics in helping health care professionals to navigate an increasingly digital clinical space, and the need to train computational experts across the many intersections of biomedicine and informatics.

    About the Presenter: Dr. Krauthammer’s career spans across both medicine and biomedical informatics: He currently holds the position of Associate Professor at the Yale University School of Medicine, with affiliations in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Pathology and Applied Mathematics. Prior to that, he received his M.D. degree at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. After clinical work in internal medicine and surgery, he obtained a Ph.D. in biomedical informatics at Columbia University in New York. Dr. Krauthammer’s lab at Yale University is analyzing large text and image corpora, as well as high dimensional Omics data, with a focus on developing diagnostic, prognostic and predictive models of disease.
