The workshop will begin at 8:00am on March 27 and will include presentations on the NIH grant funding processes, tips for writing a successful NIH grant application, pathways for career development, the most appropriate funding mechanisms, and potential sources of funding. A grant review session by a mock Study Section will also be included. Register early; Workshop attendance will be limited.
