UNDERSTANDING THE NIH REVIEW PROCESS
Gain insight into the review process to inform your approach to writing the submission
“Excellent, great writing tips… Very useful…Useful to newbies as well as seasoned grant writers… I feel like I’m learning so much – never having applied to NIH before it can be overwhelming with all the acronyms and subsections and jargon, but I feel like I’m starting to get a grasp of it. Presenter clearly has expertise and content area knowledge. I’ve sat through similar sorts of presentations that are so general or from someone who is a non-scientist and I think the combination of having both make this a very worthwhile product.”

“Very informative and easy to follow the speaker’s presentation… As usual, it was a thorough, engaging, and instructive. I always find Meg’s webinars and in-person presentations to be very worthwhile… Well-organized webinar beginning with the source of the funds to be competed for and decision making that goes into how topics of interest are determined. Very solid approach on time planning ahead… Well explained and thorough… Very informative and helpful… Provides a lot of resources for writing NIH grant proposal. The submitting questions option is great because I can ask the speaker questions during the seminar… It fills gaps in knowledge about applying for grants, especially for early investigators… Of course [I would recommend this webinar], although I should be careful as I don’t want to increase the likelihood of my competition getting awards from the same pool of funds by learning all the information and strategies this webinar series conveys :)”
