July 01, 2011 — Coral Gables — The Miller School Office of Research and Scientists and Engineers Expanding Diversity and Success (SEEDS) co-hosted another successful speed mentoring event on June 23, garnering rave reviews from both mentors and mentees. The University plans to host sessions at least three times a year around the National Institutes of Health (NIH) research project grant (R01) submission cycle. The next round will be held on August 25 and September 8.
Grant veteran Margaret Byrne, research associate professor of epidemiology and public health, attended as a mentee. No stranger to the grant reviewing process, Byrne was impressed with the unique feedback she received.
“One of the mentors gave me specific instructions on the structure of my aims, versus the content suggestions I usually receive. This was very helpful, and I plan to rewrite my aims based on his comments.”
In addition to the speed mentoring sessions, the Office of Research and SEEDS will sponsor a specific aims workshop, hosted by Mary Lou King, professor of cell biology and anatomy, biochemistry and molecular biology, and molecular and cellular pharmacology. The workshop will be held on July 28 in the Executive Center of the Clinical Research Building, sixth floor.
