HTRS ConECCTOR invites you to participate in our Grant Review Workshop to be held virtually (via Zoom) Pre-THSNA on Friday, August 21, 2020 from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM CT. This Workshop will take place virtually, just as THSNA will meet completely virtually August 23-25 in Chicago.

Accepted applications will be discussed in a small-group Zoom meeting with the participant, one to two additional participants, and one or more of the following HTRS-member faculty:

· Jorge Di Paola, MD, Professor of Pediatrics and Molecular Genetics and Genomics, Division Chief, Pediatric Hematology Oncology, Washington University School of Medicine

· Vince Faustino, MD, MHS, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Yale School of Medicine, Visiting Professor of Pediatrics, University of the Philippines College of Medicine

Participants will receive direct feedback for potential improvements to their projects/applications and will have the potential for ongoing discussions with colleagues and mentors. (*Due to conflicts of interest, we cannot accept applications for HTRS MRA or ATHN/DREAM Awards.)

  • Accepted individuals will be asked to provide grant-specific application materials and/or a description of the project and career goals by Monday, August 3, 2020. Materials will be reviewed by faculty in advance and discussed in the two-hour session on August 21, 2020.
