The FIT Program is an intensive 5-day hands-on experience to help investigators succeed in the current research/funding environment. Each experienced investigator will take necessary steps toward maximizing the competitiveness of a K, R01, or similar investigator-initiated application for submission to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other major funding source. Investigators will be challenged to carefully examine research aims and explore individual professional research goals, and by the end of the program, will have taken critical steps toward fine-tuning their application in ways that study section reviewers expect.
The 2020 FIT Program: June 22 - June 26 at the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy in Lexington.
