Rutgers School of Public Health Instructor, Dr. Stephanie Shiau, has been accepted into the 2020 National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Diversity Scholars Network (NDSN) program. The NDSN is a rigorous and comprehensive professional development program focused on grantsmanship and aimed at improving the funding success of underrepresented early-stage investigators conducting substance abuse and addiction research.
NDSN consists of two separate meetings with an interim application development period to assist scholars in applying for and receiving National Institutes of Health career development awards and research grants. The first of the two-part series will take place in June and will include being paired up with an experienced scientist to discuss the scholar’s research proposal. The second meeting will be held in September and will include a mock review study section and discussion with the review panel.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in the NDSN program and have my grant proposal reviewed by NIDA-funded scientists,” said Dr. Shiau.Tags: Friday Letter Submission, Publish on March 27
