Course Description

So you are ready to begin applying for external funding and will begin with an NIH R01, right? Probably not. I will describe types of funding sources that will allow you to stairstep up to an R01. For more experienced grantees many of these sources, such as private foundation funding, can be used to keep your research program afloat between NIH grants as you resubmit. We will consider other federal funding agencies for biomedical research. The most successful researchers diversify their funding portfolio to include many types of funding sources.

Helping over 2000+ learners from all skill levels

Our students have grown their skills by taking our courses. Here are just a few of their stories.

Extremely useful, I have already recommended to five of my colleague.

Excellent webinar…it has a lot of great information for new faculty and even postdocs who are thinking about becoming a faculty member – great advice about developing an overall strategy for getting an initial grant and building/maintaining a funding portfolio. I also found the advice about focusing one’s research efforts helpful.

I have watched five other of your seminars on demand; this was my first live one. Each one seems to top the previous one for packed knowledge and insights…I liked the pace, the flow, and the conciseness. The slides are well done.
