The TraCS Institute is pleased to announce the dates for a two-day writing seminar titled “Scientific Writing from the Reader’s Perspective” taught by Dr. George Gopen.  Dr. George D. 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.

Cost: $80. Participants will receive lunch on both days and a course handbook. Register at
