Virtual Grant Review Workshop - August 2020

HTRS ConECCTOR recently hosted a Grant Review Workshop (via Zoom) on Friday, August 21, 2020 from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM CT.  Accepted applications were discussed in a small-group Zoom meeting with 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

· Cindy Neunert, MD, MSCS, Section Head, Pediatric Hematology, Columbia University Medical Center

Participants received 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 did not accept applications for HTRS MRA or ATHN/DREAM Awards.)

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

This meeting is NOT an official program of THSNA.
