Proposal Development: From Idea to Award

This seminar is designed to teach investigators how to develop a successful research proposal starting from choosing the sponsor and funding opportunity to identifying strengths and weaknesses in the scientific narrative. Speakers will focus on how to look at a proposal from the perspective of a potential reviewer. The most common review criteria will be discussed, as well as frequently made mistakes. Much of the discussion will focus on recognizing and highlighting the strengths of your proposal, while minimizing any weaknesses.


This program is for the Tri-Institutional research community.
