HPA 591: “Grant Writing for New Investigators”


HPA 591: Grant Writing for New Investigators is designed for junior faculty and post-doctoral fellows interested in applying for a career development grant (NIH K series awards such as K23, etc., VA Career Development Awards, AHA Mentored Clinical & Population Research Awards, ACS Mentored Research Scholar Grants, etc.). It is a required course for the MS CTS (Master of Science in Clinical and Translational Science) program, but is available to those outside of the program as well.

Through participation in this course, students will learn the mechanics of an NIH grant application, develop grant writing skills as they draft a career development award application, and carry out peer reviews.  There are only about 10-12 seats available for this class, so space is very limited.

Spring 2019 Semester

The course will meet from 1:30PM-4:00 PM on Thursdays from January 14th thru May 3rd

If you are interested in enrolling in this course, please send Jaclyn Jackson your current CV and a brief statement outlining:
