Grantwriting Workshop: NIH R01 Grants

There are still some openings in the Research Funding Service health services R01 grant writing workshop on Tuesday, March 18th from 8:00 a.m. to noon.

In this workshop we will cover general principles of grantsmanship, strategies for writing a winning grant proposal, and the psychology of grant review. To illustrate these principles, we will review a successful NIH R01 grant. The grant selected for this workshop is from the field of health services.

Questions often asked include: "Is this workshop right for me?" and "Will I get anything out of this workshop when my area of research is not the same as the sample grant?"
Answer: This workshop is targeted toward junior faculty and senior postdoctoral fellows, however, any UW investigator will benefit. Most of the workshop covers general principles that are applicable to all grant writers. The grant is critiqued against a checklist that the attendee can use later for his or her own grant, and the same checklist is appropriate for all R01 grants independent of topic.
