Over 125 UB researchers and staff attended the recent NIH Proposal Seminar held at UB.


Coordinated by the Office of Research Advancement, new faculty, veteran researchers and first time applicants learned strategies to tailor proposals to the new NIH guidelines, tips on crafting strong aims and gained valuable insight into the NIH review process.  Over half the attendees plan to submit to NIH within the next 24 months.  The seminar’s networking lunch connected researchers from over 40 UB departments, fostering new interdisciplinary collaborations.  An NSF proposal seminar will be offered October 25, 2013 and include an overview of the DOE and DOD funding process.

The Office of Research Advancement offers services designed to support faculty in the pursuit of large scale, multi-investigator research grants.  Proposal seminars, workshops and trainings designed to help identify funding sources, advance planning for proposals and strengthen submissions are among the services available to UB faculty and researchers.
