Getting Into Funded Research: An Introduction to Winning Grants for Professors

Pre-Conference Workshop
Scott Burris & Evan Anderson, Temple University School of Law
Thursday, June 7, 2012 1-2:30 pm

Professors have much to contribute to the empirical study of health law. Participation in empirical granted-funded research can be personally fulfilling and professionally enriching for health law scholars. But entering the world of grant-funded research can seem daunting for the uninitiated. This year’s pre-conference workshop, to be led by Scott Burris and other members of the National Program Office for Public Health Research, will provide for law professors and other health law scholars an introduction to grant-funded research and strategic advice on how to develop winning proposals.

Based on their experience both as funders and recipients of funding for empirical health law research, presenters will discuss how to conceptualize a study and frame it for submission through competitive granting processes. The presenters will also touch upon logistical issues unique to doing grant funded research as law school faculty including what to expect in terms of release time, research costs, building interdisciplinary teams and dealing with soft money partners. To provide an opportunity for individualized feedback, registrants will be asked to submit, prior to the workshop, a “specific aims” section (the short summary required in typical NIH grant proposals), that may be discussed, with the participant’s permission, during the session.

Register for the pre-conference workshop today! Please note, this workshop requires a separate registration fee of $50.
