2020 On-Site Hanover Research Grantsmanship Workshop

Hanover Workshop rev


Feb. 5-6, 2020, the Office of Research Development will welcome Hanover Research to the UTHSC-Memphis campus for the 2020 On-Site Grantsmanship Workshop. 

Hanover’s Grants Consultant, Steve Jax, PhD, will conduct morning training sessions from 9:00am till 11:45am, which will be open to the UTHSC campus at large. In the afternoon, Dr. Jax will be available for individual or small group grant consulting meetings with UTHSC faculty.  These consultations allow for discussion of specific faculty projects and an opportunity for Hanover to learn about investigators’ research interests, grant seeking experience level, and the unique needs associated with the development of faculty research. Hanover is available to provide consultative guidance on positioning early-stage research projects, targeting upcoming new proposal submissions, and navigating resubmissions based on reviewer feedback. The consults serve as the foundation for engaging with Hanover’s team to receive initial guidance on grant pursuits and scope out future Hanover proposal support.


View the agenda for presentation topics/titles here.  Although Day 1 is directed toward early stage investigators, and Day 2 is geared toward mid-stage investigators, training sessions are open to all who are interested.
