Preconference Grant-Writing Workshop
NIH Grantsmanship: Keys to a Meritorious Score
Thursday, February 10, 2011 • 7:30–11 am
This half-day preconference workshop, which targets junior faculty, and pre- and post-doctoral investigators who plan to conduct cancer control research, will provide an introduction to writing a grant proposal for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It will cover the National Cancer Institute’s and the National Institute of Nursing Research’s perspectives on:
(1) developing a research program, and
(2) the NIH application and review process within the realm of cancer control.
Lectures and discussions, relevant website resources, and a review of currently funded abstracts will give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in grant writing. You will review the different types of NIH funding mechanisms and examine reasons for grant application acceptance and rejection. Presenters are Ann M. O’Mara, PhD, RN, FAAN, from the National Cancer Institute and Sue Marden, PhD, RN, from the National Institute of Nursing Research. Registration is limited to 30 attendees. Attendees should bring an abstract for a proposed project and a biosketch from the PHS 398 application. These will be discussed and critiqued during the breakout sessions.
If you are planning on attending the ONS 11th National Conference on Cancer Nursing Research and would like to attend this free workshop, please email email@example.com. The first 30 people who email will be accepted for the workshop.
