Workshop Description

This is a two-part workshop. First Dr. McBride will talk about how to effectively write a scientific paper. He will explain that you do not necessarily write a scientific paper the way you read it. If you want to know more, you need to attend! Dr. McBride will then present on how to review a scientific manuscript or proposal with a critical eye. This is a skill not often taught and is essential for any grad student or science professional. The second part of the workshop will focus on grant writing. Dr. Ebbin and Dr. Staudinger will present an introduction to grant writing for new researchers. This will be an interactive presentation and include a discussion of the different grants available and a review of the grant writing process from soup to nuts.
