The Medical School Office of Research welcomes back John Robertson, Ph.D., of Grant Writers’ Seminars & Workshops, who will be presenting “Write Winning NIH R01 Grant Proposals.”

This widely acclaimed seminar comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to the proposal-writing process. Emphasis is given to such things as idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers.

This full-day workshop is an annual event for R01 Boot Camp participants, and will be open again this year to U-M faculty members, postdoctoral researchers and administrative staff interested in brushing up on NIH grant writing skills. The $359 workshop fee includes a hard copy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook as well as session materials, a light breakfast, and lunch.

Here is what some past participants had to say about the workshop:

“I was really impressed by the ability of the speaker – and the information presented – to be general and yet specific when needed. With such a diverse group, this is key.” – Associate Research Scientist, EECS

“This was an outstanding, focused presentation, which has already provided me with new ideas on how to write my next set of grants better. This should be a required seminar for all junior faculty involved in writing applications for extramural research.” – Assistant Professor, UMMS

“Incredibly informative, and the specific examples were so helpful. I’m actually feeling enthusiastic to get back to writing! Thank you.” – Research Assistant Professor, UMMS
