Plus, you’ll hear their tips on effective ways to talk about your research.

Write Winning Grant Proposals Seminar (3/18)

Time: March 18, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Location: Lindner Hall, Room 112

Target Audience: All faculty, post-docs, and research administrators

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

Registration is required and closes March 1st, 2019.
Presenter:  Dr. John Robertson from Grant Writers' Seminars & Workshops

What will be covered:   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.  Regardless of the agency, participants are taught to write with a linear progression of logic, which leads reviewers through their applications. Strategies designed to merit a fundable priority score are emphasized.

There is a $75.00 fee which covers the cost of the participant’s copy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook.  Participants can select their choice of one workbook focusing on NIH, NSF, USDA/NIFA, or Any Agency (for proposals other than NIH, NSF, or USDA).  The workbook begins with refinement of the idea and then systematically progresses through tips and strategies for each section of the proposal, concluding with pre-submission review and writing of the accompanying cover letter.

Lunch is provided.  Registration is required and closes March 1st, 2019. 

Parking:  Woodside and Campus Green parking garages are easily accessible.

Hutton Ethics Lectureship (4/4)

Time: April 4, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Location: MSB E351

Target Audience: All faculty, post-docs, and research administrators

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

Dr. Benjamin Wilfond will be the Hutton Ethics Lectureship keynote speaker at noon on April 4 and plans to pose a radical question to the UC medical community. He asks: Why does medical research and clinical work have to exist separate from one another? If the approach was reevaluated to include the opinion of patients and include informed consent—think about all that could be accomplished, Wilfond says. He’ll discuss his Research on Medical Practices (ROMP) project, a collaborative effort of Seattle Children’s, the University of Washington and Stanford University.
