Writing Specific Aims and Research Objectives

Writing Specific Aims and Research Objectives
Date/Time: April 5, 2013, 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Location: Hadley Room, Campus Center (10th Floor)

Specific Aims, as required by NIH, and Research Objectives, as required by NSF, are the most important parts of a research proposal. In fact all hypothesis based research proposals require well-articulated aims or objectives. Dr. Mary Fechner, from the Office of Research Development, will discuss the structure, logical flow, and elements essential to compelling aims and objectives statements. Workshop registrants should be currently working on a hypothesis based research proposal and submit a draft of their aims or objectives page one week prior to the workshop. Drafts need not be polished, but reasonably complete so participants can benefit from critique.

Enrollemnts for this workshop will be limited but other sessions will be scheduled as needed. Faculty members new to writing aims or objectives statements or those who are having particular difficulty are especially invited.

Lunch will be offered.
