NC State PDU: Writing Your First R01 Workshop - Day 1

Thu. 4 Aug, 2022 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Proposal Development Unit in the Office of Research and Innovation at NC State hosts a summer writing workshop to support early-stage faculty applying to NIH grants. As a partner in our CTSA, the broader TraCS community is invited to participate in this workshop for early-career faculty considering their first NIH R01 proposal.

This workshop is designed for early-career faculty considering their first NIH R01 proposal. Day 1 will be informational, including an overview of the NIH, a breakdown of R01 opportunities, a discussion of writing strategy, and an overview of the review process. Day 2 will be for individuals who have started their applications and would like a hands-on opportunity to work through their application components: bio sketches, specific aims, and budget.

This workshop will be in person in room 4280 of the Talley Student Center with a zoom option on the first day for those who cannot attend in person.

Design Inspired Teams webinar: Zero to One in Healthcare Innovation

Thu. 4 Aug, 2022 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Zero to One in Healthcare Innovation: Start with Empathy and Creativity

design inspired healthcare

As a UNC Health provider, you might see opportunities to improve healthcare on a daily basis. It can be frustrating running into the same problems without having the tools to create change. You might have an idea for a new medical device, digital tool, or process that energizes you, but you're not sure what to do next.

During this webinar, we will provide an overview of what it looks like to go from Zero to One in a healthcare setting. Going from One to Many is a matter of scale, but the skill and process of going from Zero to One requires techniques and a mindset of Design Thinking.

Empathy and Creativity are two different but interlocked domains of expertise. With Design-Inspired Teams, we recognize the unique talents of people from different backgrounds who are important to delivering medical innovation. The collaboration between experts in Empathy and Creativity builds exciting momentum towards change as many new ideas are explored, prototyped, and tested.

Odum Institute: Academic Publishing 101

Fri. 26 Aug, 2022 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Academic Publishing 101: From Idea to Article... And Beyond

This course will be offered in-person only and will not be recorded.


Course Summary:

Although graduate school teaches you many things, many Ph.D. students complete their dissertations having never been fully trained in academic publishing. How does academic publishing actually work? Where should you publish your research? How do you actually get papers accepted in strong academic journals? In this talk, we will discuss several major ideas in academic publishing (focusing on the social sciences). We will discuss:

  • professional integrity and ethics
  • the role of academic conversations and communities as a guide for publication forums and journal selections
  • the mechanics of publishing in journals and other forums (including outlining, writing style, journal, legal, and newspaper submissions, the peer review process, revisions, and corresponding with editors)
  • and acceptance and all that follows


Instructor: Todd Bendor

Todd BenDor is a Professor of City and Regional Planning at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research and teaching focus on developing ways to better understand and prevent impacts from urban growth on sensitive environmental systems.

Much of his recent research has studied the social, economic, and ecological consequences of ecosystem service markets and ecological restoration regulations. He has also developed computer models to assess the opportunities and consequences of urban growth, as well as promote environmental conflict resolution.

Professor BenDor is a faculty member in UNC’s Curriculum for the Environment and Ecology. He holds a B.S. from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, an M.S. from Washington State University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Duke BERD Seminar: Genetic association models for related samples and population structure

Fri. 26 Aug, 2022 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

The goal of genetic association studies is to identify genetic variants that are associated with a trait or phenotype, which is often a disease. This problem is challenging to solve because there are often millions of tests to be performed, numerous causal variants, non-genetic factors that are often unknown, and structure in the genetic data.

Genetic data can be structured, in the sense that samples are not independent, under a variety of real-world scenarios, including the presence of close or distant relatives, and multiple genetic ancestries such as in multiethnic studies and recently admixed populations such as African-Americans and Hispanics. Genetic data is also structured due to linkage disequilibrium, which results in correlations between variants that are in physical proximity. In addition to reviewing all of these concepts, the presentation will focus on the two most common models for this task, namely linear regression with principal components as covariates, and linear mixed-effects models, and includes some recent evaluations comparing the two.

Intended audience: biostatisticians and clinical/translational researchers
Technical level: intermediate

Presenter: Alex Ochoa, PhD

Health Equity Research Intensive

Mon. 29 Aug, 2022 12:00 am - 6:00 am

Co-sponsored by NC TraCS, the UNC Center for Health Equity Research's (CHER) Health Equity Research Intensive (HERI) is a unique opportunity to join other researchers to learn how to design more inclusive health equity research projects.

HERI will introduce you to research methods and tools that emphasize partnership and engagement across all stages of research, from idea conception to budgeting to dissemination. Participating in HERI will equip attendees to effectively center equity in their research.

This intensive aligns with the center's mission by creating space for community leaders, health care professionals and academics to learn and apply new tools for inclusive health equity research.

HERI centers partnership and engagement with innovative approaches and methods.

New in 2022: CHER is offering a third day focused on inclusive research. They’ll offer space for participants, particularly community members, to generate creative and innovative solutions to apply to their work and communities with an emphasis on inclusive research.

Participants in the collaborative workshop on Day 3 will co-create a definition of inclusive and equitable health research and a vision of what it will take to get there. Through interactive activities and small group break-outs, attendees will have opportunity to learn, share and, most importantly, connect with others who are committed to advancing health equity, systems change and inclusivity through their research work.

Priority will be made for voices from communities to share challenges they're experiencing and approaches that they think are best for their community. Facilitation methods and collaboration tools that support equitable partnerships and inclusivity will be demonstrated in the workshop through active learning techniques. The workshop aims to generate innovative solutions towards achieving inclusive research through mutual learning among all attendees.

The 2022 Health Equity Research Intensive is a fully virtual event.

Participating in HERI

HERI welcomes all participants. Past participants have been:

  • Community leaders and members.
  • Members of community-based and faith-based organizations.
  • Learners interested in health equity research.
  • Members of academic communities (students, fellows, faculty, scientists and staff engaged in health disparities/health equity research).
  • Public policy professionals.
  • Public health professionals.
  • Healthcare providers and professionals.
  • Policy makers.

Participating in HERI will help you:

  • Apply a health equity lens to your work.
  • Collaborate more effectively with partners.
  • Apply a comprehensive framework to achieve health equity.
  • Use quantitative and qualitative methods more effectively.
  • Understand a life-course perspective.
  • Understand historical and cultural contexts of health equity.

Registration

Registration for the 2022 Health Equity Research Intensive (HERI) uses the UNC event registration system. There are questions as part of registration, asking you to select your preferred sessions for the intensive. Individual program itineraries will be provided closer to the program dates.
