The College of Medicine Office of Faculty Affairs and Development,
Office of Research, and UC LEAF are pleased to present the fourth lecture
in the 2014-15 "Ready, Set, Go!" series.
Margaret Hanson, associate dean of the Graduate School, and Melanie Cushion, PhD, senior associate dean for research at the College of Medicine, will facilitate a session on Grant Writing.
- This workshop is designed to assist those new to grant writing in developing a strategy for pursuing research funding. Topics include: establishing long-term funding goals, critically reading the funding solicitation, creating a proposal development timeline, contacting program officers, and university proposal development resources and procedures.
- Identify and focus on areas of the NIH proposal that are particularly challenging (i.e., specific aims, significance, and innovation and abstract).
- Cover the different types of NSF proposals, the proposal components, and how to effectively address the review criteria. The presentation also will include the 2014 changes to the proposal guidelines and Fastlane. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from researchers who have received funding from NSF.
Ready, Set, Go! is a nine-course series of programs, facilitated by
an interdisciplinary team of research faculty, and is designed to
provide new faculty members with the competence and skills to set up and
maintain a successful research laboratory or clinical research program.
