Summer Grant Writing Workshops

Specific Aims Workshop

In this workshop, small groups of applicants will meet to review the specific aims of their application, with the objective of making them as concise and clear as possible. The Specific Aims page should be an executive summary of the whole grant. It needs to be written extremely well, because it is the one part of the grant that the majority of the study section will read. It is also used internally by NIH grant officials for making decisions about the grants to support among those whose scores fall within the fundable range. The workshop will be led by Dr. Mark Dewhirst and other senior faculty members.

Summer Dates

June 14 -- 9 am to 11 am or 1 pm to 3 pm

June 20 -- 9 am to 11 am

All workshops held in 335-336 Baker House.

Significance/Innovation Workshop

In this workshop, small groups of applicants will meet to review the significance and innovation sections of their applications. There is a saying in study section, “Nothing is worth doing well if it isn’t worth doing.” In a competitive funding climate, it is important that your significance and innovation sections clearly communicate the urgency of your research. Similar in format to the Specific Aims Workshops, these will be led by Dr. Mark Dewhirst and other senior faculty members
