Mind the Gap: Avoiding and Surviving Gaps in Research Funding

Meeting Description:

Whether you work for a large institution or a small institution, funding for research in the bone, mineral and musculoskeletal field is becoming increasingly harder to come by. Join us on Tuesday, October 23rd at 12:00 PM ET for the next Career Development Webinar “Mind the Gap: Avoiding and Surviving Gaps in Research Funding” hosted by Shivani Sahni, Ph.D. (Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, Institute for Aging Research at Hebrew SeniorLife) and Maria Squire, Ph.D. (Associate Professor at The University of Scranton Department of Biology). Dr. Sahni will provide the perspective of working at a large institution and seeking extramural funding while Dr. Squire will provide insight into using intramural funding while balancing a heavy teaching load at a smaller institution. This webinar is free to attend, so register today!
