Webinar Overview: With increasingly high competition for research funding, we consider how students and early career researchers can increase their chances of securing grants. This webinar features a panel of successful grant recipients and mentors to early career researchers, who will offer their expertise in preparing a successful grant application. This talk will offer an overview of various strategies covering all stages of grant writing. The talk will be particularly relevant for students and early career researchers. The panel will be open to questions towards the end of the webinar.

Trevor Steward is a NHRMC/MRFF Fellow at the University of Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences. His research focuses on using ultra high-field 7T MRI technology to understand how subcortical regions of the brain contribute to common symptoms found across psychiatric disorders. Although the majority of his research to date has examined the neuropsychopathology of eating disorders, he also conducted studies on gambling disorder, PTSD, and obesity.
