Communicating with the Department of Defense – Pre-Proposals and Abstracts
February 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This webinar, “Communicating with the DOD: Pre-Proposals and Abstracts,” will be presented by McAllister & Quinn and is ideal for investigators at all career stages who wish to explore competitive research opportunities at the U.S. Department of Defense.
In this webinar, McAllister & Quinn will give special emphasis to the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program – the program with the highest annual funding level under the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program, a congressionally appropriated program within the Department of Defense that explicitly supports biomedical research.
Established in fiscal year 1999, the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program supports research across the full range of science and medicine, with an underlying goal of enhancing the health, care, and well-being of military Service members, Veterans, retirees, and their family members. In FY 2019, the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program was appropriated nearly $1.5 billion; of this amount, $350 million was appropriated for the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program to solicit proposals in 49 topic areas.
The featured speaker is Liz Barrows, a federal funding consultant with extensive experience working with the Legislative and Executive branches of the U.S. Government, particularly the Department of Defense and Health and Human Services.
Whether submitting a proposal under the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program or another of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program’s myriad opportunities, all programs require submission of either a pre-proposal or letter of intent. This webinar will focus on best practices for developing pre-proposals and abstracts. The session will also provide a short overview of the Military Health System Research Symposium – the Department of Defense’s premier scientific meeting. This annual four-day educational symposium provides a venue for presenting new scientific knowledge resulting from military-unique research and development. Abstract submissions for this meeting are due in February.
On Jan. 15, McAllister & Quinn presented another webinar, “Introduction to DOD Biomedical Research,” which broadly explored competitive research opportunities through the Department of Defense.
