The Department of Defense is an untapped source of potential funding for many health researchers.
In this session, Lewis-Burke Associates LLC will explain the complex DOD landscape for health research. They will review the trends and priorities across programs, and will address the following questions:
- How does working with DOD differ from other research agencies?
- What are the best points of contact for faculty in approaching DOD health?
- What messages best resonate with DOD health officials?
This interactive program, designed for early-career faculty, will introduce attendees to resources for identifying and applying for internal and extramural funding, and running a more productive and compliant research program. A panel of faculty will share ideas about balancing research and teaching and best practices for establishing a strong research program.
