Grant Writing Skills Workshop

The AFMR Grant Writing Skills Workshop was designed for faculty at all career stages who are preparing grant applications to the NIH. The workshops were led by Dr. Robert Freishtat of Children’s National Medical Center and focused on how to communicate the key elements of successful NIH proposals through the use of didactics and experimental learning.

Past attendees have said:
"Excellent, concise, practical!"
"Great overview, great presenter. Thank you!"
"Thorough, easy to understand, enjoyable!"

Topics discussed include the following:

  • Orientation to the NIH and Scientific Review: Overview of the NIH extramural mechanisms of funding opportunity and reading and interpreting funding opportunity announcements.
  • Anatomy of a NIH Grant: Characteristics, content, and function of the various pieces of the proposal including how to write for your reviewers.
  • Specific Aims and Hypotheses: Writing
  • NIH Peer Review: Understanding the review criteria and review format, what actually happens in the study section, how to interpret reviews, and planning for the inevitable resubmission.
