Course Description

Perhaps the greatest benefit of working with an experienced, successful grantwriter is that the grantwriter reads dozens of Summary Statements each year across topic areas and study sections. This perspective can be invaluable even to a grantee who serves on a specific study section, as it helps the grantee understand current broad trends across numerous study sections. This course describes dozens of the most common mistakes I see on NIH grant applications.
