Information Sessions


SBSRI offers Information Sessions each Fall and Spring semester to acquaint SBS faculty and students with SBSRI funding, research policies and procedures, and external funding opportunities. Additionally, we occasionally offer review sessions for popular opportunities like National Science Foundation opportunities. We also offer presentations and workshops to individual units, targeted to specific aims and goals. Please reach out if your unit is interested in an SBSRI unit session.

Our current list of Information Sessions is below, and we always post news about our upcoming events on the homepage of our website. Questions? Email
