Grant Writing Workshop on Mentored
Career Development Awards
Instruction in writing successful grant applications for NIH mentored career
development awards will be presented. Although the workshop uses examples
from patient-oriented research career development awards (K23s), the underlying
concepts for the career development plan, mentoring plan, and research plan
also apply to research scientist development awards (K01s) and clinical
scientist development awards (K08s).
Characteristics of successful mentored career development grant applications
will be presented, including common mistakes to avoid; how to write individual
components of the application; the NIH review process; and how to develop
a responsive resubmission, if needed. While the focus will be on NIH mentored
career development awards, the concepts taught will be applicable to most
other funding sources that support mentored career development awards.
5 lectures on Wednesdays in September from 3:30-5:00
PM at China Basin (Room 6702).
This course is open to all UCSF fellows and faculty at no
charge. Please complete the application below by August 24, 2009 so we
