Grant Writing
A Business Development Workshop
Thursday, January 21, 2010

1:00 PM - 1:30 PM   Registration and Networking
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM   Workshop

You may have been a master of grant writing, but things are about to change!

The NIH is unrolling a shortened and restructured format for grants starting in 2010. All applications for due dates on or after January 25, 2010 require use of new forms and new instructions. New instructions mean shorter page limits! The research plan is fully restructured and reflects new evaluation criteria. Even people who have written grants in the past are going to need to �relearn� the process.

Join us for an interactive workshop with Shauna Farr-Jones, Ph.D. and Amy Boggs, Ph.D., on grant writing basics and pitfalls. This event will cover general submissions and writing strategies, with a special focus on NIH SBIRs new submission format, as well as other agencies, grants, and deadlines.
