      First round success in the grant funding game is a huge feat for any investigator, however, given the extremely competitive nature of research grant applications, it is sometimes inevitable that PIs will feel the sting of an unsuccessful grant and go on to navigate the challenge of resubmitting their revised grant for another shot at the top prize. This presentation intends to provide experience-based expertise from CHS and O’Brien Institute members who have already done this navigating and are willing to share their journey and advice. Our expert panel is comprised of individuals from all stages of their careers, from junior to emeriti faculty, who have had experience with the resubmission process after an unsuccessful grant.

      Learning objectives:
       
      • Provide evidence-based strategies for how to receive and process feedback on an unsuccessful grant and translate that information into the necessary adjustments to a grant for resubmission.
      • Understand important considerations to be incorporated at the resubmission stage of a grant application.
      • To provide an open forum for researchers to learn specific strategies intended to assist grant applicants find potential success when navigating the resubmission process.

    Combatting Misinformation on Social Media

    • Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
    • Please note: Capacity is limited to 300 participants for this course, and registration is on a “first come, first served” basis. CIHR will also maintain a small waiting list, so any registered participants are asked to contact CIHR as soon as possible if they can no longer attend. Participants must be based at a Canadian post-secondary institution (such as a CIHR eligible institution).

      It’s important for researchers to respond swiftly to mis- and disinformation. However, in a digital age where disinformers are savvy with how they attack facts and those sharing them, it is important we debunk mindfully… and strategically. In this keynote, research scientist turned science communicator Samantha Yammine (also known as Science Sam) will share the importance and pitfalls of sharing science on social media, with lessons learned from the comms front lines during the pandemic. She’ll also share best practices and tips for effective myth-busting before a lively discussion. This is a session you’ll want to tune in for before sending that next hot take of a tweet!

      Important note about registration

      This workshop will be delivered in English. Similar workshops will be available in French at a later date (details and registration information will be posted separately on CIHR’s website).

      Participants must register using their Canadian post-secondary institution e-mail address. Failure to do so will void the registration and result in the registrant being removed from the participant list with or without notice.

      This workshop was designed for health researchers. For the purposes of this workshop, “researcher” is defined as an individual actively pursuing or performing health research at the graduate level or above. The workshop is therefore designed for career stages ranging from graduate students (such as Master’s students, PhD candidates and post-docs) through to senior researchers.

      This training course is free of charge for participants, thanks to support from the Centre for Research on Pandemic Preparedness and Health Emergencies housed at CIHR.

      The instructor

      Samantha Yammine is a neuroscientist and popular Science Communicator better known as Science Sam. She earned her PhD from the University of Toronto studying how stem cells build and maintain the brain, and then went on to found Science Sam Media, a science-based digital production agency.

      She is passionate about empowering people to explore science by making it more familiar, accessible, and inclusive. Garnering millions of views a month, Samantha is an innovative leader in creating factual content that stands out as @science.sam on Instagram and Tik Tok. She has been a guest Science Correspondent for a variety of shows on Netflix, TVO Kids, CBC GEM, Discovery UK, CBC Radio, and AsapSCIENCE. She sits on the Board of Trustees for RCIScience and the anti-misinformation campaign ScienceUpFirst, and was named one of Toronto Life’s Top 50 Most Influential People in Toronto in 2021.
