DREAM Trainee Day agenda: DREAM Diabetes Trainee Day 2023
This is an exciting and excellent opportunity for trainees to learn about anti-racist approaches within research, participate in a grant writing workshop, and have a career-related discussion with academic and non-academic panelists in a fun, informal setting.
Those who wish to register for the DREAM Trainee Day must submit the following documents to Stephanie Manthanarack, DREAM Research Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Paragraph on your current career path (your road)
- Abstract submission for poster presentation
- Studentship assignment for grant writing workshop
1. Paragraph on your current career path (your road)
This assignment must include a one-paragraph maximum summary of “your road”. Where you are coming from, where you are and where you see yourself in the future and what you hope to gain from this workshop along that Road. This should be single spaced, half page, using either 12-point Times New Roman or 11-point Ariel font, with a minimum of 2 cm around each page.
2. Abstract submission for poster presentation
Please see the abstract guidelines: DREAM Trainee Day Abstract Submission Guidelines 2023
3. Assignment for grant writing workshop
This assignment must include a two-page maximum studentship application. The assignment will be evaluated and discussed by your peers in breakout groups and by seasoned reviewers during the workshop. You can submit a recent or upcoming studentship application, as you will get feedback from other trainees and faculty that may strengthen the proposal or an entirely new submission for a project you would like to tackle in the future.
The proposal should be single-spaced, using either 12-point Times New Roman or 11-point Arial font, with a minimum margin of 2 cm around each page. Condensed type or photo-reduction, except for figures, will not be accepted. References, figures and tables can be added to a third page.
The proposal should provide a clear, concise outline of your proposed project, including a brief rationale for the study, hypotheses, objectives, experimental design, methods and statistical analyses, significance of the work, and possible barriers to the work and solutions to overcome them.
PLEASE NOTE: There are 10 spaces available for MyRoad partners. Selected candidates will receive confirmation to participate in the DREAM Trainee Day and will automatically be invited to attend the 12th Annual DREAM Symposium: Using team science to understand childhood type 2 diabetes and its complications. The top 10 abstracts will be chosen based on the guidelines provided. Stephanie Manthanarack, DREAM Research Coordinator, will provide you with more details regarding registration and accommodations.
