  • Diversity training grants supported by the NIH are multi-million dollar grants that seek to increase the numbers of underrepresented minorities in the biomedical sciences. Specifically, these training grants aim to augment the presence of certain groups— namely minorities (such as African-Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Hispanic/Latino Americans and U.S. Pacific Islanders) as well as individuals with disabilities in the biomedical work force. 

    Leading a team of qualified individuals from various backgrounds and perspectives has proven to be an effective strategy towards the resolution of complex scientific dilemmas. These grants represent a great opportunity to make a difference and the NIH recognizes this. In 2011 alone over 39 million dollars were awarded across 160 approved R25 grant applications. And this is just one of the many diversity-driven grants currently available.

    During this 60-minute on-demand webinar, your expert presenter will cover the full range of what these training grants entail. Special attention will be given to the R25 and T34 grants, but others will be discussed as well. Walk away with a clear understanding of their mechanism and focus, the basic structure of these grants as well as their collaborative nature.

  • Meet Your Expert: Dr. Dorothy Lewis

    Dr. Dorothy Lewis

    Dr. Dorothy Lewis, Professor of Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases at the University of Texas Health Science Center has a 30-year history of writing grant applications, including experience with recent changes made by NIH. Her successful track record for winning grants has given her a valuable “in the trenches” perspective that can benefit you, at whichever stage you find yourself.

    She received her PhD in Microbiology in 1978 from the University of Arizona in Tucson. She then pursued an NIH-supported postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New Mexico, School of Medicine in Albuquerque. In 1985, she published her first paper related to T-cell subset changes in HIV patients and acquired her own independent NIH funding. She has maintained continuous NIH funding since 1985, experiencing both times of multiple grants and times of reduced funding.

    She just retired as a member of the Training and Workforce Diversity Study Section C, called TWD-C (2012-2016) and was former chair of the AIDS Immunology and Pathogenesis study section (2009-2011). She helps to teach grant writing at the graduate student level at Univ of Texas and at Baylor College of Medicine and serves as an ad-hoc reviewer on many applications.
