Webnar: Writing Career-Development Grant Applications

The Art and Science of Writing K08 or K23 Career Development Grant Applications

LIVE Webinar • Wednesday, July 27 • 1:00 P.M. EST • 60 Minutes

Dear Colleague,

Writing for a mentored career development award isn’t hard … once you know all the tricks of the trade. Nonetheless, it is definitely an art. You have to stand out from the crowd and put your best foot forward. There are definite strategies you can use to successfully present yourself, your mentor, your environment, and your career development plans, among others. Second best won’t get you funded. You must convince the NIH that you are worthy of the taxpayers’ money. If you think you are worthy, then convincing the NIH should be easy … with a little help.

This uniquely focused webinar will cover the specifics of K08 and K23 awards, the reasons why you should apply, the importance of a good mentor, where you will need help, and what happens after you submit your application.

Key Webinar Take-Aways:

* Understanding NIH’s complicated requirements for these grant applications
* Importance of all the career development proposal elements, and what to include in each
* Confidence in asking for help and seeking reviewers
* Nature of the research proposal and the importance of testable hypotheses
* The significance of an excellent mentor and committee

Who Sould Attend:

Senior clinical postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty members interested in basic or clinical research as part of their career goals.
