The Thomas V. Getchell, Ph.D., Memorial Award for excellence in grant writing held a presentation for the 2021 and 2022 award winners on January 23, 2024. The 2021 winner, Ethan P. Glaser, PhD is an MD/PhD student with John Gensel, PhD, in the Spinal Cord and Brian Injury Research Center. Alexander Keeble, a graduate student with Christopher Fry, PhD, in the department of physiology was the recipient of the 2022 award. The award honors the memory of Getchell, a former professor of physiology in the UK College of Medicine Department of Physiology, who encouraged researchers to improve grant writing skills to acquire research funding. The award supports a travel stipend for a student participating in the annual grant writing workshop. Getchell founded the workshop in 2005 with a vision to provide proactive, individualized mentoring to medical, doctoral, and post-doctoral trainees to further their skills in grantsmanship, increase their success rate in obtaining fellowship grants, and enhance their research careers. Getchell was a member of the UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging and served as associate dean for research and basic sciences for the UK College of Medicine from 1989 to 1998. Workshop trainees have earned more than $2.4 million in fellowship funding as a result of Getchell’s efforts.
