Live trainings can be on-site or livestreamed — both offer a lively, highly interactive experience for grantees. All live trainings are paired with access to virtual course material to maximize retention, and any of our virtual courses can be offered as live trainings.
Master the R Series
This half-day presentation is ideal for those applying for their first R-Series grant, or those not yet successful with an R application, or not successful recently. We describe steps to prepare to write (identifying the optimal institute, seeking advice from the program officer, selecting the best study section and examining the roster, etc). Then, we describe in detail how to write the Specific Aims, Significance, Innovation, and Approach. The training includes a manual with instructions, tips, templates, and samples of each section from recently funded grant applications.
Master the P and U Series (Multiproject Submissions)
You have a group of grantees who have mastered the NIH R Series and you feel it is time to think strategically about moving to the next stage: NIH center grants or multiproject cooperative agreements. But how does one begin? The NIH multiproject grants can lead to the most gratifying stage of one’s career, in which one directs a research center or a hub within a cooperative network. But the leap from an individual grant program to directing these larger centers can be daunting. This half-day training provides an overview of the NIH multiproject submissions, how to select the optimal one for your set of circumstances, how best to prepare for one, and tips and tricks for writing a winning application. Dr. Bouvier draws from her own successes in the P and U series to help illustrate examples of successful grantsmanship strategies.
What our clients have to say
The training was an eye-opener. A lot of details were learned about how to write a successful grant
Very thorough and well presented. Wish we have more sessions from her again. That's very helpful overall.
This training is helpful before starting your journey of writing R series NIH grants. I appreciate it. Many thanks!
All good pointers and practical advices that I did not receive when in academic faculty position, trying to get RO1and R21 funded.
Thank you so much! Very great talk and inspired me to try for the first time. Looking forward to participating in the next talk. Very Helpful!
Very helpful insights, particularly the parts that are not in the official "instructions" but that someone with so many years of experience has come to understand.
Very good workshop that covered very important details in the proposal writing process, but also gave an insight into how the system works.
"Thank you so much for the R01 bootcamp today. As always, I learned an enormous amount! I highly doubt we would have had this level of success if I wasn't able to pass on to them everything I learned from you, so thank you for impacts beyond measure!"
“Meg, amazing job yesterday. I’ve been reflecting on many things you said that were either new to me or valuable for me to revisit. And I think it was great content for our trainees.”
