The STEM Ambassador Program (STEMAP) is accepting applications from faculty, post docs, graduate students, and staff in STEM fields for its 2020 science communication and public engagement cohort. Through STEMAP, scientists design and implement public engagement of science activities in non-traditional venues to reach those who cannot or do not engage with science through conventional outlets, such as by visiting a museum or science center.
This is the second Research Roundtable bringing together researchers interested in transforming the built environment from a major carbon emitter to net carbon sink through an interdisciplinary approach.
Have you ever received this feedback? Talking with a program officer can have a powerful impact on a researcher's thinking. From re-sharing the research design to reconsidering where the proposal should be submitted, or if it even should be submitted at all. Preproposal communication with program officers can help avoid a distressing outcome, and perhaps protect your most precious resource – your time. Talking with researchers is one of the most important responsibilities assigned to program officers, so you should help them do their jobs!
Advances in stem cell research have created tremendous opportunities across a broad spectrum of fields. This course provides students with all the necessary knowledge and technical know-how to start working with human stem cells. The lectures introduce the fundamentals of stem cell biology, and expose students to ongoing stem cell related research at the University of Utah.
The Office of the Vice President for Research is seeking interdisciplinary and transformative project concepts for the W. M. Keck Foundation. Keck seeks to benefit humanity by supporting projects in two specific areas (1) medical research and (2) science and engineering, that are distinctive and novel in their approach, question the prevailing paradigm, or have the potential to break open new territory in a field. Funding requests are for $1,000,000 in direct costs over three years. Indirect costs are not supported. Larger budget requests and award extensions are not allowed.
