Session Details

9:05 am – Panel Discussion: Organizing an Effective Peer Review Panel

The Temerty Faculty of Medicine (TFoM) recently rolled out an internal peer review panel mechanism for faculty submitting CIHR Project Grants. During this panel session, we will discuss this peer review mechanism, including the benefits and challenges of the process, with participating faculty across departments in the TFoM, including Dr. Jacqueline Beaudry (Department of Nutritional Sciences), Dr. Karen Maxwell (Department of Biochemistry) and Dr. David Riddick (Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology). While we use the CIHR Project Grant competition as an exemplar, the format and strategies for organizing effective peer review panels should be relevant to anyone interested in organizing a peer review mechanism.

10:00 am – Grant Writing Fundamentals

Grant writing specialists in the TFoM (Golnaz Farhat and Alex De Serrano) will cover strategies and suggestions for writing a strong grant proposal. This workshop should be relevant to researchers at all career stages who are interested in learning strategies to improve the persuasiveness, clarity, and impact of their grant proposals.
