The Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington hosted the inaugural Emerging Luminaries in Nutrition, Exercise, and Metabolism Symposium in the fall of 2019. The goal of the symposium was to highlight up-and-coming scholars in the areas of nutrition, exercise, and metabolism. The symposium also featured the announcement of the Grant Proposal Partnership Challenge.
The Grant Proposal Partnership Challenge was created to encourage all scholars who attended the Emerging Luminaries Symposium to pursue innovative research proposals in collaboration with faculty from the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington. Twenty-six emerging scholars from across the United States participated in the symposium and six scholars have submitted grant proposals deemed eligible for a $5,000 award by a panel of judges at the School. To be considered eligible for the award, scholars needed to submit a quality proposal by March 30, 2020 intended for extramural federal (e.g., NIH; NSF) research funding and consistent with the mission of the NIH to advance fundamental knowledge to promote human health, extend life, and reduce disability. To receive the award, scholars need to submit proof of the research proposal to a federal agency by the end of 2020.
Scholars eligible for the awards include the following:
- Dr. Andrew Brown – Indiana University Bloomington
Dr. Michelle Cardel – University of Florida
Dr. Daniella Chusyd – Indiana University Bloomington
Dr. Blair Johnson – University of Buffalo
Dr. Cordelia Running – Purdue University
Dr. Colby Vorland – Indiana University Bloomington
David Allison, Dean of the Indiana University School of Public Health, noted, “We are thrilled to see emerging scholars continue to work hard to advance the science to improve our knowledge across the disciplines of nutrition, exercise, and metabolism. We also are delighted that our Grant Proposal Partnership Challenge has helped to inspire collaboration and stimulate innovative thinking in research.”
The symposium and the Grant Proposal Partnership Challenge Award were sponsored by the Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington with unrestricted support from our generous sponsors.
