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.NOW OFFERED COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE!
