Nationally Recognized Grant-Writing Expert Peg AtKisson to Lead Free UAMS Workshop

By Ben Boulden

This UAMS Research Academy workshop is open to a limited number of attendees and will prioritize assistant and associate professors who are planning to submit a NIH R01 grant application for the February 2022 deadline. Since slots are limited, early sign-ups are encouraged.


Attendees may also nominate themselves for Research Academy Scholars positions. The six-to-eight selected scholars will receive continued grant-writing assistance from the AtKisson Training Group through the fall in preparation for their R01 submission. Research Academy Scholars will be selected from interested attendees of the workshop through a peer review process. More information will be provided during the workshop.

The Research Academy and workshop are sponsored by UAMS’ Division of Research & Innovation, Translational Research Institute, and Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.
