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.
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.
