For this year's course, participants should view the pre-recorded presentations (below) before attending the live portion on Dec 5.

The live session on December 5 will kick off with a short introductory presentation ("What Are K's and Which One is Right for You?" by Dr. Ellen Seely) followed by an open Q&A/discussion with experts from across our systems. There will also be smaller breakout groups, providing a chance to speak with recent K awardees

The open Q&A/discussion format is a great opportunity to interact with experienced investigators to get your pressing questions answered, and it will also provide a chance to interact with other K applicants across our institutions.
