As a trained PhD basic neuroscientist-turned research generalist, I work to develop programs and build resources that fulfill research scientist specific needs aimed to facilitate researcher career development and enhance the likelihood of successful competition for extramural research grant dollars. This includes the development and management of equipment and service based cores, education on research grant application strategies, alignment with appropriate funding mechanisms and facilitation of research collaborations through formal and informal programs and networking.
