Program Purpose

The SITC Grant Writing Workshop encompassed when and how to find the right grant for your career stage and project, the do’s and don’ts of grant writing, and how to revise a grant for resubmission. Faculty members from academia with a track record of successful funding as well as program officers at the NIH and Private Foundations provided insight about writing effective grants and utilizing program officers in the revision stages to successfully obtaining funding. There were several formal presentations followed by panel discussions with an emphasis on early career scientists (postdoctoral fellows) and junior to mid-level faculty (Instructors and Assistant Professors).
