Faculty Workshop: Understanding NIH

November 8, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Renaissance Park, Room 909

Office of Research Development

Introductory workshop for new faculty, or faculty who are new to NIH, to learn about the agency. Workshop will include overview information and agency basics, a presentation by NIBIB program officer Seila Semlimovic, and a discussion with Nasim Annabi, a junior faculty member who’s had success with NIH, to learn about her experience. A substantial amount of time will be provided for Q&A.

Šeila Selimović is Director of the NIBIB program in Tissue Chips / Tissue Preservation Technologies. Her other scientific interests include lab-on-a-chip platforms, paper microfluidics, and point-of-care diagnostics. Previously, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School and Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Selimović’s research has focused on the development of microfluidic platforms for applications in biophysics and biological engineering.

Nasim Annabi is an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering, as well as a lecturer at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard University. She completed her PhD at the University of Sydney and a subsequent postdoc at Harvard Medical School before joining Northeastern in Jan. 2015. Her research focuses on the design and synthesis of microengineered biomaterials for tissue engineering applications as well as development of in vitro bioengineering platforms for drug discovery and screening. In addition to a new R01 from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, she has received an American Heart Association Scientist Development Grant (2016) and a FY17 TIER 1 Award.

A more advanced NIH workshop will be held in the Spring semester.

Lunch will be served.
