This workshop is designed to assist faculty with applying for NIH or other peer-reviewed grants. The workshop consists of two parts: a one-day classroom session on followed by small discussion sessions.
The classroom session focuses on how to understand the NIH grant system, with a focus on using that knowledge to your advantage.  This session covers types of grants; criteria for a "fundable" research problem; the NIH system of peer review; and sources of funding for new and early-stage investigators. It also addresses non-government funding sources. Participants learn how to develop a budget using the electronic submission process.
The second part of the workshop consists of small discussion sessions, during which participants carry out "mock reviews" of two critical components of a grant: the abstract and specific aims. Five days prior to their discussion session, participants submit a draft of their abstract and specific aims page. In addition to receiving a "mock review" of their Abstract and Specific Aims, participants receive feedback from the course director, Dr. Donna Vogel.



Special Funding Opportunity: Center for AIDS Research 

The Johns Hopkins Center for AIDS Research provides pilot grants to faculty in the Schools of Public Health, Medicine, and Nursing to enable and support HIV/AIDS research projects. Junior faculty at other JHU schools are eligible to apply if the proposal meets all other criteria. The prime purpose of these awards is to strengthen the individual’s ability to secure independent funding. We plan to award up to ten $50,000 grants per year, depending upon the number of fundable applications and availability of funds. The CFAR Scholar Grants were previously named the Faculty Development Awards.
