Speaker: Andrea B. Kelly, PhD, Scientific Review Officer, Scientific Review Branch, Division of Extramural Activities, National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, National Institutes of Health
This session will provide information for early-career investigators seeking to obtain a grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) for research focused on one or more of the areas within NIDCD’s scientific mission: speech, language, voice, hearing, balance, smell, and taste. It will provide an overview of the submission and review of applications for fellowships (F30, F31, and F32), career development awards (K01, K23, etc.), the loan repayment program (L30), and the NIDCD-specific early-career research award (R21), followed by an ample question-and-answer period.

In 2012 she became a Scientific Review Officer, overseeing review of grant applications in a number of study sections, including Language and Communication and Communication Disorders Review Committee.
