Kristina Stinson has been nominated by the Dean and Associate Dean to participate in an exclusive trip to the NIH – National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. This exclusive trip is sponsored by the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement and produced by the Office of Research Development.

The September 11th-12th trip to NIEHS in Research Triangle Park, N.C., is geared to connect a select group of other early-career faculty members, with NIEHS personnel. The program will provide participants with useful insights about NIEHS from Health Scientist Administrators (i.e., program officers) and senior officials, including Dr. Gwen Collman, Director of the Division of Extramural Research & Training. Personal meetings with POs provide an opportunity to: 1) learn about NIEHS program priorities that may not be explicit in RFPs, 2) explain research goals in person, and 3) begin to establish a long-term relationship with key individuals at NIEHS.
