DoD Funding 101: An Overview of the Landscape and Strategies for Pursuing Research Funding

Target Audience: Faculty working in STEM, Informatics, and Health & Life Sciences
Date: Monday, December 16, 2019
Time: 11:00am-1:00pm
Place: Ashby Browsing Room, IUPUI University Library 2nd Floor

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research is hosting a presentation on best practices and strategies for faculty pursuing Department of Defense (DoD) funding. Opportunities offered through DoD are a less understood, and often under-accessed, source of research funding. This event will be an opportunity to hear from external Washington DC-based experts from The Cornerstone Group and The Conafay Group. These experts have extensive experience working with the Department of Defense.

Dr. Chandan Sen, Associate Vice President for Military and Applied Research, IU Director, Indiana Center for Regenerative Medicine and Engineering (ICRME), Executive Director, IUH Comprehensive Wound Center, will share his perspectives along with IUPUI faculty who have successfully obtained DoD funding. The presentation will cover:
  • An overview of the DoD funding landscape
  • The agencies targeted priorities and areas of interest
  • Best practices for DoD grantsmanship
  • Available resources for developing and submitting a DoD proposal

This session is sponsored by the IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and the IU Government Relations Office of Federal Relations.
