Event description

Description

Planning and Writing Successful Grant Proposals

A Seminar for Postdocs and Graduate Students

This workshop is geared toward postdoctoral researchers and advanced level graduate students. Participants will learn how to plan and write competitive grant proposals. While NIH and NSF funding mechanisms will be addressed specifically, the techniques and approaches are applicable to crafting proposals for all funding agencies. In addition to general best practices, the seminar also focuses on aspects of the grant writing process that are critical for successful outcomes, such as:

  • How to communicate with program officers
  • How to evaluate feasibility
  • How to select the right funding mechanism
  • How to respond to reviews
  • How to identify quality mentors and develop a solid training plan

Lunch and refreshments will be provided!

Instructor:

Peg Atkisson

Peg AtKisson, PhD, AtKisson Training Group

M. S. (Peg) AtKisson, Ph.D. earned her degree in neuroscience from Tufts University in 2001, after also working in cell biology and cancer biology. After completing her degree, she consulted for Cogniscent, Inc., on nanotechnology applications of short DNA sequences as chemical sensors.

She began her research development career as a contract grant writer, with clients including the Association for Computing Machines, Wake Forest University, Hunter College, Tufts University among others. Tufts created a position for her, where she subsequently created and fully staffed one of the earliestformal research development offices. On her departure from the position of director of proposal development, she and her team had been involved in bringing in over $140,000,000 in funded grants. Funders included NIH, NSF, USAID, and the W. M. Keck Foundation. Most of these successful high-value proposals supported research centers and infrastructure. She also provided training for faculty and post-doctoral fellows in grant writing.

During her time at Tufts University she met the founders of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops (GWSW). In 2008, they invited her to join the company, and she split her time between Tufts University and GWSW until 2010 when she joined the company full time. Dr. AtKisson was the first person that the founders hired and trusted to carry out the seminars and workshops provided by the company. In eight years with GWSW, she presented an average of 30 seminars per year, customized for many different funders, covering bench and social science as well as arts & humanities. She worked directly with over 200 individual researchers on proposals ranging from materials physics to humanities, with the goal of coaching investigators through the grant-writing process to leave investigators with a new skill set to be applied to every proposal going forward.

She left GWSW in January 2017 to create AtKisson Training Group to expand support for faculty research development beyond grant writing--placing the grant proposal in the context of the individual's larger research enterprise and career trajectory. Dr. AtKisson is a highly acclaimed public speaker with a track record of helping faculty improve their competitiveness for funding.

The Southern Arizona Biomedical Research Symposia (SABRS) 2018

This workshop is part of the Southern Arizona Biomedical Research Symposia (SABRS). SABRS 2018 are designed to disseminate biomedical research industry best practices and enhance pertinent regulatory expertise among Arizona's biomedical and clinical research community. National and local experts will facilitate a series of high quality educational symposia open to all Arizona university and hospital staff and community research partners. The curricular content will provide biomedical researchers and scholars with the knowledge and resources to increase the quality and quantity of externally-funded research and scholarly activity. Symposium content is directly relevant to all levels of research activity within the biomedical field, and addresses grant writing, publishing, compliance, and critical aspects of clinical trial management.
