Washington, D.C. is the optimal place to hold a grant-writing seminar, given the access to program officers from the NIH.
Relevance of the NIH Strategic Plan: Roadmap from Concept to Successful Grant Application takes place from 9:00 – 10:30 am Wednesday in room 206. The goal of this session is to allow for grant writers in all career stages (including preparing a Foundation Scientific Development Award, an NIH K-award, or an R-grant) to discuss specific questions with program officers or representatives from various grant programs. Additionally, mentors will address the individual pieces of career development awards, including career development plans, letters of support, and building a niche.
The session will include an introduction to the types of grants available, followed by roundtable discussions with program officers and Foundation representatives. Participants are encouraged to bring aims drafts or grant ideas to discuss with mentors and program officers.
Participants will learn about the types of grants available to young investigators in all career stages and determine a “home” for their grant idea. In addition, the new NIH strategic plan and its impact on areas of funding will be discussed.
This session will be full of program officers to answer all your grant-related questions.
