Presentation: Grant Proposals 101
Speaker: Carolyn Rutter
Abstract: Grant writing is often a large part of a biostatistician's career. There are several advantages to controlling your own projects as Principal Investigator, and the demonstrated ability to successfully compete for grant funding is increasingly considered as criteria for promotion in academic settings. In this seminar I'll review some strategies for such successful competition, focusing on the proposals to the NIH. Topics will include: types of funding mechanisms, submission cycles, proposal format, grant writing style, budget considerations, and the review process.
