MHLP Assistant Professor Accepted as GUMSHOE Fellow

Dr. Kyaien O. Conner from Mental Health Law and Policy was accepted as a 2016 Fellow in the highly competitive NIH funded GUMSHOE program. GUMSHOE (Grant writing Uncovered: Maximizing Strategies, Help, Opportunities, Experiences) is one of four professional development-training programs that is committed to increasing the number of people from diverse backgrounds successfully obtaining NIH grants. GUMSHOE links mentors from various disciplines who have highly successful track records in obtaining federal funding and grant writing coaches with early career faculty fellows who wish to prepare an application to National Institutes of Health to conduct research. GUMSHOE uses a model based on innovation, best practices, and convenes cohorts of exceptional junior faculty who have a track record of success to become successful in achieving that next level of federal funding. Dr. Conner will begin her training with this program during the last week of September in Detroit, Michigan.
