Comprised of senior faculty, members of the panel have successfully obtained NIH funding for their research, currently serve as reviewers on NIH grant panels, and have mentored junior scientists towards securing funding for their own lines of research.

Following the didactic component the panel will conduct a working session that will include a mock review of grant applications. The symposium is geared towards students with a focus on the unique challenges faced by junior investigators.
