This one-day seminar is geared for junior faculty, students, and administrators who are beginning the process of submitting grants to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It is also relevant for seasoned researchers who wish to refresh their knowledge of the new NIH requirements and the peer review process. Ultimately, the focus is to assist all who wish to submit winning research proposals to the NIH.

Participants will learn how to:

* Read and interpret RFAs
* Identify and avoid common pitfalls of a grant
* Develop an irresistible idea for your grant application
* Address the pieces of the request for proposal
* Maximize your application for competitiveness
* Package the proposal in the requested format
* Understand the new scoring system and the review process
* Learn what actually happens in the study section
* Search for the appropriate study sections for submissions
* Decipher pink sheets: the inevitable resubmission
* Build an airtight case for funding
* Discern the art of the budget

Presenter: Dr. Fatah Kashanchi trained under the supervision of Dr. Susumu Tonegawa (Nobel Laureate for Medicine, 1987) at MIT. Dr. Kashanchi further trained in Dr. John Brady's lab at NIH/NCI from 1991-1998 and published more than 30 papers during his postdoc and senior investigator tenure. His research interests include both Genomics and Proteomics of HIV-1 and HTLV-1 infected cells. Research in Kashanchi's lab has been funded by various internal and external sources including GW-REF, Selective Excellence, Keck, Snyder, Sinsheimer, Cyclacel, DOD, and more than 6 NIH grants, where he is the Principal investigator. Since his departure from NIH in 1998, Dr. Kashanchi has obtained $8.9 M of independent funding. He has 92 peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals, 7 book chapters, is an NIH study section member (5 independent study sections), as well as reviewer for 12 different journals.
