The annual Education Symposium will this year feature Drs. Maribeth Champoux, and John Capitanio, who will present a symposium titled: Writing and Getting Grants-Lessons About Surviving after Graduate School (alternatively, Getting grants and thriving while others wither away). Dr Champoux, a long-term member of ASP, is a Grants Review Officer with NIH. She has overseen many grant reviews and is an expert in what qualifies as a good and bad grant. She will discuss how to develop a grant and bring it to fruition. She will also discuss how to find solicitations for grants by NIH, a useful tool, given the recent additions to the NIH mission. Dr. Capitanio, who is the Associate Director for Research at the California National Primate Research Center, will discuss opportunities for grants at the Primate Centers, as well his experiences both in getting grants, as well as surviving and thriving after graduate school. Dr. Capitanio’s experiences are a great illustration of what determines success, both in the grants’ world, and in a professional career. Questions and answers will be a fundament aspect of the luncheon.
