A unique opportunity regardless of your experience –
open to everyone interested in developing their NIH grant writing skills.
Co-sponsored by the UMMS Office of Research and the MICHR Education and Mentoring Group, this widely acclaimed seminar comprehensively addresses practical and conceptual aspects that are important to the proposal writing process (with emphasis on NIH applications). Attention is given to such things as developing ideas, identifying appropriate granting agencies, writing for reviewers, and strategies that are valuable in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers. Strategies designed to garner a fundable priority score are presented.
Participants will learn to prepare a competitive grant proposal by:
- incorporating knowledge of the peer review process in a persuasive research description
- formulating a focused research plan that incorporates well-formulated hypotheses, rationales, specific objectives, and long-range research goals
- developing and justifying a budget for the proposed research activities
- using existing resources at the University of Michigan in research proposal development
- avoiding many common grant writing mistakes.

What Past Participants Have Said About Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals:
"This workshop was one of the best experiences I have had at the University of Michigan. My only regret is to not have know about David Morrison earlier in my career."
"Dr. Morrison is an expert speaker who gives very real-world advice and suggestions in a very tough field."
"Unbelievably good presentation...I can't believe how helpful this was. By the end I felt like: finally I GET how to do this after struggling for so long."
David Morrison, Ph.D., has been continuously funded as a principal investigator for more than 30 years from NIH, foundations, and industry. He has served as a member of multiple national review panels and advisory groups. He received the first ever Faculty Service Award from the Mayo Center for Translational Sciences Activities.
