Research funding is the driving force of your lab. Each year, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds millions of dollars to institutions and their federally funded investigators to provide cutting-edge equipment, core facility support, consumable supplies, and staff salaries to accelerate new scientific breakthroughs in biomedical research, cancer being one of the top funded research areas. In 2021 alone, NIH allocated over 6.559 billion US dollars for cancer research.

With proper planning, organization, and grantsmanship, you have the best chance of obtaining funds from NIH and other sponsors for your research program. This grant writing webinar will inspire you to write your most compelling narratives, present your ideas effectively, and impress the reviewers.

The presenter, Dr. Gail M. Seigel, a faculty member at State University of New York at Buffalo with 30 years of experience writing and evaluating grant proposals, will help you gain new insights and perspectives on how to write an effective grant proposal that you can use in time for your next application deadline.

These insights include:

  • Pre-planning your proposal in terms of targeting, teambuilding, and information-gathering. There is a lot that you can do before you even write the first word to help you prepare a successful grant proposal.
  • Writing your proposal with persuasive content and a sharp eye for presentation. This includes everything from formatting the text/figures to building a strong research plan with clear hypotheses.
  • Resubmitting your not-yet-funded proposal using time tested, persuasive strategies for addressing reviewers’ critiques. Patience, resilience and resourcefulness are keys to overcoming these challenges.
