- Grants and Proposals: If you write it, they will fund: 6 Online Workshops, April 29, May 1, 6, 13, 15 and 21 3:00 – 4:30. Based on the book, Writing Successful Science Proposals, this virtual workshop outlines the components of a successful proposal and the steps to get there. Learn how to improve your chances of getting funded through fund sourcing, proper planning and organization, concise writing, collaboration, and proposal submission. Participate in interactive and relevant discussions and activities with faculty from the comfort of your home or office. Although the course is based on a book about scientific proposals the lessons are applicable to all proposals.

- Webinar: Practicing Good Science Through Ethical Study Design, March 19th, 2014, 1:00-2:00pm. The process of identifying and addressing the ethical issues raised by human research studies is often thought to be separate from the process of study design, and within the purview solely of the institutional review board (IRB). However, ideal study design incorporates ethical considerations, and many of the study design decisions made by research teams carry direct ethical implications. This session will examine the pivotal points of research design and the ethical questions that should be addressed at each step along the way.
