The DoD has a wealth of opportunities to support your research and development, but it can be confusing to understand the differences between each type of funding. Learn about the pros and cons of different funding opportunities, the process for proposal submission, and what to expect if you are awarded. Startups and small businesses will also learn about opportunities beyond the SBIR/STTR grants. This webinar will help familiarize you with the general principles of DoD funding with specific examples from medical research and development.
As a former DoD grants officer at USAMRD, Dr. Kiselycznyk wrote and negotiated funding opportunities for medical research and development. She acted as a point of contact for research scientists trying to navigate the priorities and regulations of DoD leadership and contracting officers. She is also the founder of a medical device startup and has been on the applicant side of successful NIH and NSF SBIR awards. Dr. Kiselycznyk was trained in neuroscience through a graduate partnership program at the NIH and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Her research focused on the molecular and behavioral neuroscience of stress and resilience with a postdoctoral fellowship at Yale University researching ketamine for treatment-resistant depression. She holds a PhD in Medical Sciences from the Karolinska Institute, and a Bachelors in Biological Sciences from Cornell University.
