Data & Dine is a scientific poster session and networking dinner for University of Pittsburgh postdoctoral associates and scholars to present their research to colleagues, faculty, and administrators. Due to the professional nature of the event, attendance is restricted to adults. Business casual attire encouraged.

Travel Awards for Best Poster Presentations

Posters may feature work previously presented, planned to be presented at other local or national meetings, as well as works in progress (including experimental designs and preliminary results).

While individual research grants (R series) are awarded to support the work of one principal investigator addressing a scientific problem, Research Program Project Grants (P01) are large integrated, multi-project research projects involving a number of independent investigators with differing areas of expertise who collaborate by pooling their talents and resources. Each project contributes or is directly related to the common theme of the total research effort, thus forming a system of research activities and projects directed toward a well-defined research program goal.

Accomplished faculty investigators with strong funding track records are invited to learn more about Research Program Project Grants (P01) during a panel discussion where current Pitt faculty members will be sharing their advice and insights as experienced PIs of program project grants (P01).

Internal P01 Application Planning Grants

Recognizing that it takes a significant amount of time and effort to develop a P01 application, the Department of Medicine, the School of Medicine, and UPP have pooled resources to provide funds to support the development of P01 applications. Faculty interested in developing a P01 application can apply for $50-100K to be used for hiring a project coordinator, doing preliminary studies, creating data sets, statistics and study design, writer/editor, etc. that would accelerate the development of a P01 application. Details regarding the criteria and internal process to request this funding will be provided during the workshop.
