From Sapling to Redwood: Implementation Science Career Development Grants

Date: Thursday, October 03, 2019

Category: Priority Topic

Join us for our next Implementation Science Webinar hosted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Control & Population Sciences (DCCPS) Implementation Science Team.

Since late 2016, we have been joined by all manner of leading experts, collaborators, mid-career investigators, and colleagues to discuss funding, training, growth in the field, global collaborations, priority areas, and the role of Implementation Science at NCI. Based on audience demand, we are excited to focus our fall programming on funding and grants development from several vantage points. On Thursday, October 3, 2019, from 3:00 - 4:00pm ET, Dr. David Chambers will be joined by Drs. Burnside, Davis, and Sheth to discuss their experience as investigators who have used career development awards, including K and T mechanisms, to grow capacity in implementation science individually and at home institutions. The session will include initial comments from our speakers, sharing their perspectives in a facilitated discussion, and we will then open it up for questions from participants.

This webinar will kick off a series of three sessions and will be followed by a late-October session featuring investigators who have shared their funded applications in our DCCPS Sample Grant repository, responding to broader questions about their paths to successful funding as well as speaking about the components of their applications they found the most challenging; in mid-November we will welcome past Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (DIRH) Study Section Chairs sharing insights gleaned from their collective leadership  of the review committee.
