TWO-YEAR CURRICULUM ACTIVITIES

These monthly meetings generally take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 3:00-5:00 pm unless otherwise noted. 2020-2021 dates include: 7/21/20, 8/18/20, 9/15/20, 10/20/20, 11/17/20, 12/15/20, 1/19/21, 2/16/21, 3/16/21, 4/20/21, 5/18/21, and 6/15/21. Please note that the meetings usually take place at UCLA Westwood but will be held through Zoom until UCLA’s remote work restrictions are lifted.

  • Monthly Didactic Seminars (1-1.5 hrs): grant writing, communication, storytelling, presentation skills, team science, career strategy, entrepreneurship, mentorship, and leadership trainings.
  • Monthly Work-in-Progress Sessions (1 hr): Scholars will have the opportunity to present their work in progress to a diverse group of scholars and faculty. The Work-in-Progress session is currently on hold until we are allowed to return to campus.
  • Priority for Grant Writing Studios: These are individually tailored to each scholar for longitudinal mentoring on NIH K and R grant submissions. Studios are comprised of a panel of 3-4 mentors (scientific, career and statistics) with expertise in K and/or R grant development. The panel meets with the scholar 2-3 times from the concept phase to final product. The scholar will then participate in a mock study section for a final review of the draft grant application.
  • NIH Mock Study Section. Scholars will have the opportunity to submit final drafts of their NIH grant applications for grantsmanship review by senior faculty and peer reviewers. These are designed to simulate an actual NIH study section and scholars are required to serve as reviewers and/or chair of the mock study section.
  • Ad hoc sessions are also scheduled as needed.
