Grantwriting Coaching Groups at UC Davis – apply by 8/1/16

CCHE would like to share news of upcoming coaching groups for junior investigators writing NIH proposals via our colleagues in the National Research Mentoring Network ~


NRMN-Proposal Preparation Program (P3) at UC Davis

Overview: In today’s highly competitive funding climate, the importance of strong proposal writing skills cannot be overstated. Investigators must assume that their great research ideas will be competing against a wealth of other great ideas; the proposals that ‘rise above’ are those that spark an exceptionally high level of enthusiasm in reviewers by presenting compelling arguments for not only the research’s methodologic rigor, but also the project’s anticipated impact on the field, significance for various stakeholders (patients, researchers, clinicians, investigators in different but related fields), degree of innovation, and alignment with the funding agency’s priority areas. All of these proposal features are addressed during coaching sessions. NRMN’s grantwriting groups are more than just 1-2 day workshops! Each model is an intensive program for junior investigators to work closely with experienced faculty members and peers on NIH grant proposals.

Preference will be giving to those with doctorates who are eligible to submit NIH or NIH-style research proposals as PIs from UC Davis, Charles Drew University and University of Hawaii; others may also apply and will be considered as availability allows.
