The GEA seeks to fund research projects that address important problems or questions in medical education. High-quality research proposals on the following topics are strongly encouraged, but proposals in other areas are also welcome: Professional identify formation; Learner well-being or mistreatment; Learning environment; Faculty development; Interprofessional education; Competency-based education, EPAs, or milestones; Self-directed/self-regulated learning.
Multiple projects may be funded each year up to $10,000 each up to a two-year grant period. Pre-proposals due by midnight on January 24, 2020.
- OHSU Research Development is the nerve center for managing research projects at OHSU. They provide research funding and development services, pre-award management and help with submitting proposals, post-award management, comparative medicine services, clinical trials services and clinical trials billing, collaborations with technology transfer, and research compliance tools.
- This six-week professional science writing course combines short lectures, class discussion, workshop-style writing assignments and individual sessions to help researchers learn to write better papers and grants. It is open to OHSU graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty.
- Time: Four sessions per year (winter, spring, summer, fall) on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon. Individual meeting times arranged by appointment.
- Cost: There is no charge for NGP students, second-year PMCB students and Vollum researchers; $500 for others.

- The Medical Research Foundation supports promising biomedical exploration and the development of research careers in clinical investigation in Oregon through a program of competitively awarded research grants. The foundation also presents awards to outstanding Oregon scientists and mentors.
- Time: Applications for grants are due Feb. 15, May 15, Aug. 15, and Nov. 15. Nominations for awards are due June 22.
- Every Principal Investigator wants to build and maintain a lab that attracts and retains outstanding staff members so that your science will be excellent. Juggling this endeavor with all else the PI must do — writing papers, teaching, mentoring, gaining and maintaining funding, creating collaborative and productive relationships with other PIs — can be challenging at best. This free, 1.5-day Compass course will help you learn to manage people with a focus on the particular needs of running a lab.
- Junior faculty who are nominated for this program are paired with experienced mentors who help them with goal setting, budgeting, team building, and identifying funding opportunities. Junior faculty also attend hands-on, interactive workshops focused on developing key competencies in laboratory management, grant writing, and leadership skills. Email Pepper Schedin, Ph.D. for more information on specific opportunities and events.
- The life science community has compiled a list of publicly available resources focused on responsible conduct of research (RCR) and rigor, responsibility & transparency (RRT).
- OCTRI supports faculty and fellows who are interested in establishing and enhancing their career in clinical and translational research.
- Subscribe to this newsletter to learn about innovative approaches to research training and mentoring in biomedical sciences.
- This class provides advanced training and extensive individual feedback to help you write better grant applications. Class sessions are accompanied by four one-on-one sessions with the instructor, Rachel Dresbeck, Ph.D., to revise and edit the application you are actively writing. Prerequisites include being an OHSU faculty member or completion of the Vollum Writing Class, along with imminent plans to write a grant and some preliminary data to write about.
