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 for popular opportunities including the DOD's Minerva and some National Science Foundation opportunities. If time permits, we also give presentations to individual units.

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