Sponsored Research Webinar Series

Vanderbilt University Medical Center has a six-part series entitled “Getting Started in Sponsored Research.”  Each session is short (about 30 minutes) and is not institution specific because they designed the series for their sponsored research partners who oftentimes do not have dedicated research staff members or deep experience in managing sponsored research projects.

This webinar series will introduce you to the sponsored research enterprise and provide a 30,000-foot view. Faculty and staff are invited to view sessions in November and December at the Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs, Room 521 in North Hall.
