Grantsmanship for Clinicians & Basic Researchers: Part II - Writing the R Grant Specific Aims and Research Strategy

  • DHMC, Auditorium E 1 Medical Center Drive Lebanon, NH, 03766 United States (map)

Presented by Dartmouth SYNERGY and Norris Cotton Cancer Center

Presenter: Christopher Dant, PhD, Faculty, Norris Cotton Cancer Center and Dartmouth SYNERGY
Description: Writing a competitive and winning grant proposal requires that investigators produce a highly polished, cohesive grant that really knocks it out of the park for its significance, innovation, and approach while showing that it will have a major impact on their field. Many investigators, especially new investigators, don't know how to do this or understand what pitfalls to avoid. In this seminar, we will present a systematic approach for writing strong specific aims and research strategy. We will show some common mistakes investigators make in writing these critical sections that causes the grant to fail. We present advice on grant writing that is taken from the NIH as well as from faculty who have written successful grants and served as peer reviewers. This seminar is open to graduate students, postdocs, and basic/clinical researcher investigators.
