Event Details

Presented by Dr. John Roberstson of Grant Writers' Seminars & Workshops, LLC, the Write Winning Grant Proposals Workshop will comprehensively address both practical and conceptual aspects of the grant proposal-writing process.

About the Presenter

Dr. John Robertson

Dr. John Robertson was recruited to teach grantsmanship by Grant Writers' Seminars & Workshops in 2010. Dr. Robertson has been the recipient of competitive extramural funding from both the NIH and non-federal sources.  He has authored 29 peer-reviewed journal articles and three book chapters.  He has been a member of grant review panels, a reviewer for a number of biomedical journals, and served on editorial boards.  In addition, while a faculty member at the University of Kansas Medical Center, he served as a mentor to grant applicants who were subsequently successful in meriting their own NIH funding, and he was routinely recognized for excellence in teaching.
