This one-day seminar is geared for junior faculty, students, and administrators who are beginning the process of submitting grants to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It is also relevant for seasoned researchers who wish to refresh their knowledge of the new NIH requirements and the peer review process. Ultimately, the focus is to assist all who wish to submit winning research proposals to the NIH.
Participants will learn how to:
* Find the appropriate program and grant mechanism for your idea * Read and interpret RFAs * Identify and avoid common pitfalls of a grant * Develop an irresistible idea for your grant application * Address the pieces of the request for proposal * Maximize your application for competitiveness * Package the proposal in the requested format * Understand the new scoring system and the review process * Learn what actually happens in the study section * Search for the appropriate study sections for submissions * Decipher pink sheets: the inevitable resubmission * Build an airtight case for funding * Discern the art of the budget
