Submission Categories 

  • Research Funding – Announcements about research funding and grant-related opportunities.
  • Announcements and Events – General interest/other announcements.
  • Seminars, Lectures and Symposiums – Announcements about research presentations, talks, and meetings.
  • Professional Development – Announcements about faculty professional development and CME opportunities. 

Published Newsletter Format

Here is how your announcement will appear on the front page of the newsletter. Each announcement is displayed in a white box under the appropriate Submission Category. The Title content appears as a headline (e.g., “Penn Health-Tech Grant Opportunity”) with the Tagline or brief summary content printed underneath. The Read More button takes readers to the content entered in the Body Copy field.
