About this Event

Are you interested in greatly improving your chances of getting a grant funded?

Due to popular demand, Einstein’s Office of Grant Support has invited back Dr. George Gopen, an emeritus Professor of English at Duke University, to give a day-long presentation followed by small-group writing sessions (February 25 to February 26, 2020, details below). 

You may know that Dr. Gopen, who presented here at Einstein in May 2019, has an extensive portfolio of grant-writing expertise that applies to biomedical, basic, clinical, and translational research that will not only show you how to achieve clarity and coherence in your written products, but will also change how you think about the act of writing. As before Dr. Gopen will teach us the “Reader Expectations Approach to the English Language,” which demonstrates that even more important than the words you choose for a sentence are the locations in which you deposit them. Where a word appears in a sentence will control most of the use to which it is put. We all know these expectations instinctively as readers; Dr. Gopen will make them conscious in us as writers.

This session, which will be held in Lubin Dining Hall, is open to all members of the Einstein and Montefiore who wish to benefit from Dr. Gopen’s expertise in writing. Taking part in his workshop promises to make a truly positive difference in being able to communicate more effectively. Scientific Writing at its Best

Having earned a doctorate in English and a law degree from Harvard University, Dr. Gopen was a professor of English and Rhetoric for 47 years, most recently at Duke University for 33 years. In that time, more than 19,000 participants have enrolled in his 12-hour writing workshops. He has been a consultant to scientific research firms, law firms, government agencies, and academic institutions for 40 years, throughout the U.S. and around the world. He is the author of five books and 60 articles, including “The Science of Scientific Writing”—a paper designated as one of the 36 “classic articles” by its publisher, the journal American Scientist. He is the recipient of the Legal Writing Institute’s “Golden Pen” award, a lifetime achievement award for contributions to the field of legal writing.

His lectures are interactive, lively, and filled with examples to illustrate his concepts. He keeps audiences attentive and intellectually engaged.
