BIOC B680, BIOL Z620, MSCI M512  

Instructors: Brian Calvi, Heather Hundley, and Adam Zlotnick
Schedule : Tues. 5:15 -8:00 PM  SI 001

Meets to discuss writing, communication, and grant proposals. Then there is a hiatus from class meetings while students work on their proposals individually. Students will receive periodic feedback on drafts from fellow students and their assigned course mentor – either Brian Calvi, Adam Zlotnick or Heather Hundley. Students will provide constructive comments on grant drafts of fellow students. Along the way, students may choose to modify and submit their proposal for pre-doctoral fellowships, which needs to be prepared in consultation with their PI. During finals week, we will have a grant review panel during which students will discuss and score the proposals of fellow students.
