K Club

The Emory+Children’s K-Club provides one important avenue for sharing and exchanging the most relevant and useful career development award information. It was conceived in the Fall of 2009 by Dr. Paul Spearman and was executed via the efforts of faculty members Drs. Andi Shane and Miriam Vos and research staff member Dr. Stacy Heilman. It has grown rapidly over the last couple of years and is now supported by ACTSI, CFAR, and the Department of Medicine. Various topics pertaining to the conception, development, submission, and post-award process related to career development awards are addressed. 


View upcoming K-Clubs on the Pediatrics Research calendar. This series occurs monthly at noon on the second Monday of each month (during the academic year only).


To provide an educational forum to assist fellows and faculty with successful career development award applications. 


This series consists of an introductory presentation, followed by a panel or group discussion with input and participation by attendees. All sessions convey valuable information and support a lively discussion among invited speakers and attendees.
