Great science is not enough to land NIH grants—you must also master grantsmanship skills. Our company mission is to mentor NIH grantees and help give their biomedical research the best chance of funding success. My experience at NIH as both a bench scientist and staff writer greatly informs my approach to NIH grantwriting.

What My Grantees Are Saying
"Trickle down grant success from the techniques I’ve learned from you."
"Thank you so much for the R01 bootcamp today. As always, I learned an enormous amount! I wanted to pass on some exciting news of trickle down grant success from the techniques I've learned from you. Both of my predoctoral trainees have secured F31s; one student was funded on her first try and the other on his second. I highly doubt we would have had this level of success if I wasn't able to pass on to them everything I learned from you, so thank you for impacts beyond measure!"
"The R01 will be converted to an R37 award."
“Meg, looking forward to working with you again. The first grant we worked together on did really well! They actually specifically complimented the packaging and presentation. We went below the funding line on our first try (even without the ESI bonus), which means the R01 will be converted to an R37 award (2 extra years of funding). So it really could not have gone better."
"Faculty declare Meg’s training 'an asset'."
"The National Organization of Research Development Professionals (NORDP) peer reviewer program (PEERD) visited ASU to evaluate our research development support. Faculty are specifically calling out Meg’s subscription as an asset."
