IND 438 Practical Skills in Grant Writing by Dr. PJ Simpson-Haidaris

This course is for graduate students, postdocs and junior faculty who intend to write and submit as Principal Investigator a fellowship or career development grant in the biomedical and behavioral sciences in response to government (e.g., NIH, DoD) or foundation funding opportunity announcements. This is an intensive learning and grant writing endeavor, as participants are required to write a grant on their research for eventual submission to the funding agency. Substantial support from primary mentors is needed, as individual predoc, postdoc and career development awards require significant written contributions by the mentors as well.
