VIRDE Class of 2016
The Vanderbilt Institute in Research Development and Ethics (VIRDE) is a one-month course on grant writing and research ethics facilitated by VIGH.

The VIRDE course provided intensive training in research development and productivity, and is intended to further develop the skills necessary to conduct responsible human subjects’ research and develop a grant proposal for submission. Fellows are matched with a VU faculty mentor who shepherds them through the grant development process. Additionally, VIRDE trainees complete 12 contact hours of specially tailored coursework in research ethics and research integrity, taught by Dr. Elizabeth Heitman from the VU Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society.
