K-R0 Club meets on the second Tuesday of each month at noon in the third floor conference room of the Children's Foundation Research Center, and is open to all investigators at UTHSC, as well as junior investigators from SJCRH and the University of Memphis. Senior investigators are encouraged to attend to contribute to the discussion and provide perspective.

Topics that will be covered in K-R0 Club include "How I Built My Mentorship Team," "Crystallizing Your Research Idea: What makes a good scientific question?," “Advice and Red Flag Warnings for K Awards: From the Perspectives of a Review Panel Chair and a Standing Member” and “NIH Grant Peer Review: Demystifying the Process”. These topics are covered in a variety of manners, including discussion groups, interactive seminars (some from outside speakers), and workshops.
