On November 4th the Trifecta group sponsored a grant writing workshop at the MSU engineering building. This workshop brought in several experienced researchers who discussed their experiences with writing grants for various funding entities. Shelia moderated the roundtable discussion as Drs. Johannes Bauer, Subir Biswas, Nora Rifon, and Gwen Wyatt shared their experience with NSF, NIH, and other foundations. The well attended event brought many other faculty and graduate students.
