The NIH offers two grant mechanisms to support the early stages of project development: the R03 (Small Research Grant) and the R21 (Exploratory Developmental Research Grant). These two mechanisms, both of which support up to 2 years of research, are often useful as a stepping stone to an R01. The basic difference between these mechanisms is that while the R03 supports small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources, the R21 supports exploratory, novel studies that are high risk, but which promise high reward. This new workshop focuses on how to write each of these grant mechanisms. Instructor: Wendy Sanders, MA, Assistant Dean for Research Career Development.
