Grant Preparation Workshops Begin March 22

BUMC investigators, graduate students and faculty members are invited to a grant preparation workshop on Wednesday, March 22, to learn about the process of submitting individual research grants to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

This workshop will include a presentation by Renna Lilly of the Office of Sponsored Programs and Kate Petcosky-Kulkarni of the Office of Proposal Development and will cover the necessary steps to submit a NIH proposal through BU’s Office of Sponsored Programs.

Carter Cornwall, PhD will discuss the NIH study section review and provide a general structure to follow when writing your grant.

The second part of this series includes a small group session, where investigators will present drafts of their actual grant applications for feedback from peers and faculty who have successfully been awarded grants and served on NIH study sections. This session will be especially helpful to those who plan to submit NIH grants for the June/July submission cycle.
