Presentation Transcript

  1. Writing A Research Grant Proposal

  2. The basics

  3. KnowledgeFormal training in a specific scientific disciplineUp to date information regarding the latest applications and trends

  4. InspirationAn idea in the form of a questionOutcome of answering the question: increase knowledge base and /or result in new applications/solutionsFeasibility: is it doable with the available resources?

  5. A PlanA step by step road map designed to answer the original question (s)A list of specific methods and techniques needed for implementing the planAn alternative strategy (s) to circumvent putative problems Not having a plan is planning for failure

  6. ResourcesIdentifying the available physical resources requiredProjecting the cost of performing the workIdentifying personnel to conduct the work

  7. The Proposal

  8. Organization of a grant proposal1.Specific aims2. Background and significance3.Preliminary studies4. Experimental design5. Literature cited 6. Appendix

  9. 1. Specific AimsThis is the most important page of the entire proposal (it’s the money page)Limit yourself to ONEpageNo more than 1-3 aimsShould be VERYspecific aims

  10. 2. Background and Significance1. An Introduction of the areaof research2. Background and literature survey 3. Significance of the proposed studies4. Summary5. No more than 4-5 pages

  11. 3.Preliminary Studies1. A presentation of any pertinent data obtained in the investigator’s lab 2. Displayed in an organized fashion (tables, graphs and other figures) 3. Illustrates the skills and techniques available to the investigator4. Includes a section of recent publications or manuscripts by the investigator5. About 4-10 pages

  12. 4. Experimental Design1.Organized sequentially by specific aims stated 2. A detailed description of proposed experiments including: a) Rationale; b) Design; c) Anticipated results and d) Alternative strategies3. Should be planned to methodically address the specific questions stated under Specific Aims4. About 6-10 pages

  13. Success is dependent on ►Having a sound plan ►A methodical approach to accomplish that plan ►Adequate resources to implement the plan ►And most of all the flexibility to change that plan as need be
