Gopen Seminar: Scientific Writing from the Reader’s Perspective


5/14/2012 - 5/17/2012


NC TraCS (Translational and Clinical Sciences) Institute: NIH CTSA at UNC-CH


NC TraCS Institute, UNC's CTSA, is pleased to present a 2-day writing seminar titled, "Scientific Writing from the Reader's Perspective" taught by George D. Gopen, JD, PhD.

Dr. Gopen is a Professor of the Practice of Rhetoric and Senior Lecturing Fellow in the Department of English and the School of Law at Duke University. As competition for external funding becomes more challenging, the importance of clearly communicating one's ideas and getting one's scholarly work successfully published is more important than ever. Dr. Gopen's workshops have changed participants' writing habits permanently, often resulting in improved grant writing success. Both junior investigators and experienced scholars/mentors will benefit from this program.

Monday, May 14th & Thursday, May 17th
8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Registrants must be able to commit two, full days to this workshop, as each session builds upon the previous one.

Participants will receive lunch on both days and a course handbook
