ABSTRACT: This workshop will feature presentations and small group discussions with NIDA and NIAAA program staff, including strategic advice on how to start and maintain your NIH research career. Topics will include funding opportunities for dissertation research and pre/postdoc fellowships, career (K) awards, getting your first (and your next!) R01, building partnerships, avoiding stagnation, and making strategic use of supplements and other funding opportunities at NIH and beyond. The first 60 minutes will feature presentations and general Q&A. In the last 30 minutes, participants will be able to choose a virtual roundtable for small group discussions hosted by a NIDA/NIAAA program officer. Bring your questions! This session is designed for early career investigators and the people who mentor them, but all are welcome.
