The Department of Defense funds research across the spectrum, from very basic science to social and behavioral studies. But how do you take advantage of these funds? Come to March’s Funding Focus, hosted by Research Funding & Development Services, to learn about what the DoD is currently interested in, the importance of networking, and how you can get support to attend the most important DoD biomedical research conference of the year, the Military Health Systems Research Symposium. Abstracts for this meeting are being accepted through Apr. 3, and you will be notified by May 8 whether your abstract was accepted.
DoD Funding and Insights Gleaned from the Military Health Systems Research Symposium
Thursday, Mar. 19, 12 to 1 p.m.
Mackenzie Hall 2201
The Military Health Systems Research Symposium brings together all the branches of the armed forces, this joint symposium provides a collaborative environment of exchange among military medical care providers with deployment experience, DoD scientists, industry, and academic scientists like you, OHSU researchers! This is a highly interdisciplinary meeting. Areas of interest include combat casualty care, military operational medicine, clinical and rehabilitative medicine, and military infectious disease. The 2015 MHSRS includes new topic sessions on genitourinary injuries and humanitarian emergency response–as well as a special track dedicated to infectious disease.
As with the extremely popular 2014 meeting, this year, the office of the Senior Vice President for Research will pay for meeting-related travel expenses for OHSU researchers whose abstracts are accepted for presentation (you have to actually be presenting to take advantage of this offer). We can also help review abstracts for military relevance and other important details prior to submission, but don’t delay: the deadline is rapidly approaching.
The meeting is usually held the third week of August in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. If your abstract is accepted and you want to take advantage of the travel support, we will ask you to fill out a very easy and short application (coming soon).
This presentation is one of a series of workshops that Research Funding and Development Services offers throughout the year, designed to share advice, tips, and general information on funding for the OHSU research community. It’s free; no need to register. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
