Speed Mentoring for Budding Geropsychology and Neuropsychology Research Careers

Students and junior investigators are invited to join Division 20, Division 40, and the APA Committee on Aging for an interactive mentoring program — Speed Mentoring for Budding Geropsychology and Neuropsychology Research Careers. The program will take place on Friday, August 3, 2012, 12 p.m. - 1:50 p.m., Convention Center, Room W311F.

The program will include brief presentations demystifying the process of applying for grants and a mock review study section illustrating the types of issues that arise in the review of grant applications. Senior investigators and NIH program representatives will be on hand to answer questions in informal small-group and one-on-one discussions on issues regarding the development and implementation of early career research programs. Faculty are encouraged to attend with current and recently graduated students. Lunch will be served.
