Academic Enrichment Awards

CREMCaD has two major funding opportunities for faculty. Both opportunities are academic enrichment awards to support an immersion experience. Please visit the program pages to explore these opportunities:
  • Visiting Scholar awards are intended to help early career faculty develop or expand a relationship with a mentor or collaborator, or to obtain a new research skill
  • Mini - Sabbatical awards are intended to help mid career or senior faculty in a transition from basic science to translational or clinical science by developing or expand a relationship with a collaborator, or for mid career or senior faculty to obtain a new research skill
Grant Writing Workshops
The the CTR-IN offers 3 Grant Writing Workshops each year. These are generally hosted at our headquarters site at UNLV and last for 2 days. We bring in outstanding instructors who are world class experts in how to plan and draft a successful grant proposal for the NIH and other major sponsors of clinical and translational research. The Workshops are usually held in the winter, the spring and following our Annual Meeting in June, Grant Writing Workshops

The the CTR-IN offers assistance in finding a mentor and establishing that relationship. The Mentoring Unit also provides assistance and advice to help insure that those relationships are beneficial for both parties.

If you are looking to find potential mentors or collaborators, or you would like to serve as a mentor, please enter a VIVO profile. By doing so you make it possible for others to find you when they are seeking collaboration in areas of shared interest. We've developed a short video course to help you create your VIVO profile, it's available here ...
