Writing the New NIH Grant: A Systematic and Proven Approach to Grantsmanship

Beginning 2010, the NIH released the new "Enhancing Peer Review" guidelines for grant structure and content. In this seminar, we will explore the NIH research grant with its newly restructured content, and present a proven and systematic strategy for writing an NIH grant - an approach that many seasoned NIH grant writers are now using to increase their chance of success. The strategy is also valuable to investigators writing grants for many of the private foundations that sponsor medical research. More specifically, we will: 1. dissect the new research section and discuss common mistakes investigators make in writing grants, 2. address grant organization, aesthetics, and aspects of language and writing.

Writing the Biomedical Manuscript: The Journal Editor’s Perspective

Description: This seminar will examine the essentials of creating the peer-reviewed biomedical manuscript from the point of view of journal editor. We will look at what constitutes a good (and bad) manuscript and how scientists and physicians can significantly improve their manuscript-construction skills. We will utilize a structured, proven approach for writing manuscript sections and aspects of clear writing that often plague inexperienced and even experienced manuscript writers. By the end of this class, researchers will use a new approach to writing that will significantly improve their manuscripts.
