Workshop overview and goals

The AusCP-CTN CRE aims to develop the health and medical research workforce by providing opportunities to advance training of new researchers, particularly those with a capacity for independent research and future leadership roles.  This 3-day residential course is aimed at early to mid-career researchers or clinical trainees in the fields of cerebral palsy, rehabilitation, neonatology, stillbirth and child health research. The goal of the course is to produce a highly competitive funding submission in clinical or pre-clinical research. Participants are expected to bring a copy of their draft submission to the workshop. Workshop attendees will be assigned a mentor and will receive individual feedback on their application. Outcome is to produce a competitive submission for an NHMRC (or similar) new investigator grant, project grant or fellowship (ECF, CDF, RF).  There are only a limited number of places available in the workshop, so attendance is via an expression of interest and competitive selection process.


You will be assigned an experienced mentor with NHMRC and/or NIH track record who will provide individual feedback/support/mentorship on your application.  Your expression of interest form will be used to link you to the right mentor. You may also have a secondary mentor in the group who can provide expertise on the topic.  A local mentor should be nominated to assist with the long-term goals of the workshop.
