Monthly researcher’s luncheon (2nd Friday)

The luncheon is a casual forum for getting to know other Internal Medicine faculty with research interests.  Generally, one of our faculty presents a brief overview of his or her current work, which serves as a springboard for discussion.

Departmental Seed Grant Program (3x yearly)

Three times yearly a Request for Applications is released to Internal Medicine Faculty.  These See Grant awards are small (<$7500) and provide resources to demonstrate feasibility of an approach, obtain limited preliminary data, or support new ideas.  The details of the RFA change from time to time.  Contact Dr Calhoun for more information.

Grant Proposal Review Program

The Department of Internal Medicine coordinates a grant proposal review program for faculty who wish to improve the quality and competitiveness of their extramural funding applications.  These review sessions include senior faculty from a variety of subspecialties who have expertise in obtaining extramural support for their research.  Constructive feedback is provided to the presenter with the goal of strengthening the application.  To schedule a proposal review, contact Dr Calhoun.

Basic Clinical Science Symposium Series

The Basic Clinical Science Symposia are multidisciplinary, team-taught presentations designed to bridge the gap between basic sciences and their clinical applications.  These are disease-oriented sessions, held several times a year in the context of Internal Medicine Grand Rounds.  Typically initiated by a case presentation, the BCS Symposium will include presentations on the clinical aspects of the disorder and on the basic sciences that underlie the clinical presentation.
