This workshop series is intended to assist faculty principal investigators in managing the sometimes challenging tasks of getting all the administrative work completed on a grant while staying focused on the research. Developed by senior grant-funded faculty, this series covers topics such as overall PI responsibilities, working with subcontractors, hiring and supervising staff, monitoring budgets, reporting strategies, and thinking about applying for the next grant.
