Event Details
R Grant Proposal Workshop (Part I and II) Return to listing



This two-part workshop focuses on preparing and submitting proposals for R awards through the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It will be led by Carol E. Lorenz, PhD, retired Associate Director of the UNC Center for Women's Health Research. She developed these workshops after having worked with many early-stage investigators and learning some of the things they struggle with as they write their proposals. Dr. Lorenz has taught grant proposal workshops in multiple locations since 2012.

You will derive the greatest benefit if you come to the workshop with a research proposal partially developed and with a specific organization and submission date in mind. The workshop is designed so that participants have time to work on appropriate parts of their own proposals during the sessions. You will have the opportunity to receive feedback from your peers and from the workshop leader. Much of what we will cover in the sessions will help you clarify your thoughts and move your proposal along.
