Work in Progress Seminar

New members who wish to attend the monthly meeting are welcome! Seminars are held on Wednesdays of each month, from 12:00 – 1:30 PM.

Monthly TRIPLL Work in Progress (WIP) seminars are primarily devoted to reviewing and critiquing grant proposals prior to submission. Seminars serve as a “mini-study section,” where proposals are carefully reviewed in advance by seminar attendees and interdisciplinary feedback is given to the presenter. Presenters circulate their materials one week in advance of the seminar to allow group members to carefully review the work. WIP seminars have helped enhance the grant-writing skills of investigators who have gone on to obtain federal and nonfederal funding.

WIP seminars are also open to reviewing and critiquing manuscripts (in preparation or with a revise and resubmit status) and/or discussing methodological and measurement issues related to research projects. Shorter discussions about new research ideas are also welcome. Seminars focus on grants, papers and other initiatives related to the topics of pain and pain management, but can also include presentations in areas related to these topics.

WIP seminars provide opportunities to learn about the work of your colleagues and identify potential collaborators across participating institutions, including Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell Ithaca, The Hebrew Home at Riverdale, and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York.
