Presenter: Stephen Quake, PhD
Professor of Engineering, Bioengineering, Applied Physics, and (by courtesy) of Physics
Stanford University

Dr. Quake’s interests lie at the nexus of physics, biology and biotechnology. His group pioneered the development of Microfluidic Large Scale Integration (mLSI), demonstrating the first integrated microfluidic devices with thousands of mechanical valves. This technology is helping to pave the way for large scale automation of biology at the nanoliter scale, and he and his students have been exploring applications of lab-on-a-chip technology in functional genomics, genetic analysis, and structural biology. Dr. Quake is also active in the field of single molecule biophysics.

Offered by the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity

The K career development awards support mentored lab-based or patient-oriented research designed to foster the career development of young investigators. They help transition from junior faculty positions to independent research-based academic positions. In 2017, the K award success rates ranged between 18-30% in different institutes. Funding opportunities are often missed due to poor understanding of what is available and how the award can be secured.In this workshop, Laurie Aurelian, PhD, will discuss the different programs, and how to develop the best match for you. She will explain the reviewers’ expectations and the most common misconceptions, provide an overview of the strategies to be used in order to write a competitive proposal and discuss a pilot program for one-on-one consultation to provide specific help, as needed.

Following the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing one-on-one consultation with Dr. Aurelian to provide specific help through the submission of the K award.

The workshop will be limited to 10 participants, with priority given to those who plan to apply in the next two K cycles.

Key messages

  • Understand the K awards and how they are appropriate for you
  • How to optimize the message and meet NIH expectations
  • Writing your application; required components
  • Step by step strategies, mentors’ selection and institutional support
  • How to best describe yourself as the candidate and optimize the presentation of your career development plan
  • How to optimize presentation and writing of your research proposal
  • Review strategies and tips from award recipients and reviewers
Please fill out the 6-question survey here: https://stanforduniversity.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3CbDhF1YigwTFu5 by September 4, 2018 so we may gain more insight into each participant.

You will receive an email from me confirming your participation once the survey and registration have been completed. Again, maximum attendance is 10.

Dr. Laure Aurelian is senior advisor for faculty development at Stanford University and Professor of Pharmacology and Microbiology at the University of Maryland Medical School. Her research interests are focused on virology, immunology and cellular and molecular biology, with emphasis on cancer and neuroscience. She received her first R01 award in 1970 and has since been continuously supported by NIH grants. She is the author of 300 publications in outstanding peer-reviewed journals and numerous review articles and book chapters. She is the inventor on 14 U.S. and foreign patents. She has trained over 50 students and post-doctoral fellows most of whom have achieved independent academic careers. Dr. Aurelian has served on standing study sections that review R01, PO1 and K award applications and is still functioning as a reviewer for NIH grants. At the University of Maryland, she works with investigators in developing grant proposals and programmatic initiatives, and educates faculty in grant and manuscript writing skills.

SCCR Science Series: The Opioid Epidemic: How We Got Here and How to Get Out @ Alway M112
Feb 7 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
SCCR Science Series: The Opioid Epidemic:  How We Got Here and How to Get Out @ Alway M112

The mission of the Stanford Center for Clinical Research (SCCR) includes offering educational resources, training, and support for investigators and research staff.  We have invited Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Anna Lembke, MD, to present on the important topic of prescription drug misuse. In this course, you will learn about the opioid epidemic and what health care professionals need to know to help with recovering from this crisis.

At the conclusion of this class, you will be able to: 

  • Recognize how and why opioid prescribing has changed from 1980 to 2016
  • Identify the neurobiological, sociocultural, and psychodynamic factors driving over-prescribing and over-consumption of prescription opioids
  • List ideas for what health care providers can do to target and reduce this public health crisis going forward 

Attendance is open to all research staff

About the Instructor:

Anna Lembke, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Medical Director of Addiction Medicine, and Chief of Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic, was one of the first in the medical community to sound the alarm regarding opioid overprescribing and the opioid epidemic. In 2016, she published her best-selling book on the prescription drug epidemic, Drug Dealer, MD – How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It’s So Hard to Stop, which combines case studies with public policy, cultural anthropology, and neuroscience, to explore the complex relationship between doctors and patients around prescribing controlled drugs, the science of addiction, and the barriers to successfully addressing prescription drug misuse and addiction. Using her teaching/academic position and her public platform, Dr. Lembke continues to advocate for people with addiction, and educate health care professionals, policymakers, and the public on a wide variety of addiction-related topics.

BRN OPTIONAL
