Established by the division of Research and Innovation in 2020, the mission of the Research Academy is to build a sustainable research community and elevate research excellence at UAMS. It aspires to create innovative care models and transformative breakthroughs in medicine. This mission aligns with UAMS Vision 2029 to make Arkansas the healthiest state in the region.
As our first initiative, Research and Innovation has partnered with the Translational Research Institute to launch a Mentored Grant-Writing Program for its Research Academy Scholars. The goal of this initiative is to expand research grant success through a structured grant-writing program and dedicated expert mentorship.

UAMS-affiliated faculty researchers in full time positions are invited to attend a free, virtual workshop led by nationally recognized grant-writing expert Peg AtKisson, Ph.D., Monday, May 24 – Thursday, May 27, 9 – 11 a.m. each day.
Space is limited- register now!
This UAMS Research Academy workshop is open to a limited number of attendees and will prioritize assistant and associate professors who are planning to submit a NIH R01 grant application for the February 2022 deadline. Slots are limited; early sign-ups are encouraged.
SCHOLARS WILL BE CHOSEN FROM WORKSHOP ATTENDEES
Workshop attendees may also nominate themselves for Research Academy Scholars positions. The six-to-eight selected scholars will receive continued grant-writing assistance from the AtKisson Training Group through the fall in preparation for their R01 submission. Research Academy Scholars will be selected from interested attendees of the workshop through a peer review process. More information will be provided during the workshop.
