Please join the Academy of Radiology Research for two exciting events during the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting.
First, the Academy and the RSNA are co-hosting a workshop entitled “What it Takes to be an Expert Reviewer for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) — the Peer Review Process Demystified.” This course will examine the following topics:
1) The different grant mechanisms within the NIH and the requirements for submitting to a particular mechanism.
2) The criteria used in the evaluation of NIH grants and the study section review process.
3) The benefits of serving as a study section reviewer.
In addition, workshop participants will observe a mock study section presented by the NIH.
This informative workshop will take place on November 30, 2013 from 1-5pm in McCormick Place, Room E253CD. To register, please visit http://www.rsna.org/Register.aspx.
In addition, the Academy is holding a ceremony to honor the accomplishments of the researchers inducted into the its Council of Distinguished Investigators. This prestigious honor recognizes individuals for their accomplishments in the field of imaging research. The radiology research community has been responsible for many important advances that have had a profound impact on healthcare. Researchers who have been named a Distinguished Investigator have made significant contributions to the field and rank within the top 10% of all Radiology Department faculty.
The Distinguished Investigator Ceremony will take place on Monday, December 2, 2013 from 3-4pm in McCormick Place, Room S105C. To register, please contact Roxanne Yaghoubi at [email protected].
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at RSNA!
