Brief Biography of Peg AtKisson:
M. S. (Peg) AtKisson earned a PhD in Neuroscience from Tufts University, and spent a total of 15 years at the bench in cell biology, cancer biology, neurobiology and nanotechnology. She is also an alumnae of the Marine Biological Laboratory’s Neural Systems and Development course (1996). Since 2001 she has focused on grant writing and faculty research development, starting as a contract grant writer for Tufts University, the Association for Computing Machines, Hunter College and Ivy League clients. At Tufts she founded the research development office, where she and her team averaged $10-$12 million a year in funded proposals. After 8 years at Tufts, the total was $140 million in awards. She joined Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops in 2008 and left at the end of 2016 after many years of successful training of researchers and scholars in the art of grantsmanship. She founded AtKisson Training Group in 2017 to provide more integrated training of grant writing with research development for both individual faculty members and larger, multi-investigator groups.

Mid-Career Faculty Events
- See slides and handouts from our previous mid-career events on the OU Resources page.
For those who were unable to attend the original events, WISE@OU has created videos of workshops and discussions.
- In the Fall of 2014, WISE@OU supported the AAUP workshop focused on the tenure process. This workshop helps junior faculty develop a better understanding of this process. Faculty who have served on FRPC as well as the Provost participated in this panel discussion and gave tips for preparing dossiers.
- Past years' tenure workshop videos can be found here and here.
- In December 2014, WISE@OU hosted special guest speaker Dr. Deborah DeZure from Michigan State University. Dr. DeZure is the Assistant Provost for Faculty and Organizational Development, and is a leader in research on faculty career development, mentoring, and leadership. In this video, Dr. DeZure shares her tips for successfully surviving and thriving in mid-career.
