Resident Research Support and Activities
To access these funds, the resident must write a one page proposal in which the hypothesis to be tested, the approach that will be taken, the faculty member(s) who will collaborate, and an itemized list of the materials to be purchased, up to $1000, should be described. The proposal is then submitted to the residency program director for evaluation and approval.
Appropriate costs to be paid for by these departmental funds include specialized antibodies and chemicals, histology charges (either within the departmental research laboratory or other research core facilities), publication costs and, on an exceptional basis, small equipment that is not otherwise available.
Within one year after the approval of the research proposal, the resident should provide to the residency program director a one-page summary report of the progress on the project. This progress report should include conclusions drawn and a list of the abstracts or publications that have resulted or are planned from this research activity. Only after receipt of the progress report may further funds be requested, either through a proposal to extend the current project or to propose a new project.
The resident should keep the residency program coordinator informed of all accepted abstracts and papers, and when available, provide her with copies of these items. Also, it is expected that the residents will present their research projects at the annual Departmental research retreat and/or other intradepartmental research presentation forums. In addition, receipt of funds from the UVA Pathology Resident Research Support Program should be acknowledged in abstracts and publications, and they may be cited in Curricula Vitae as grant funding awarded.
