About This Event

The Medical School Office of Research welcomes back John Robertson, Ph.D., of Grant Writers' Seminars & Workshops(link is external), who will be presenting "Write Winning NIH R01 Grant Proposals."

This widely acclaimed seminar comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects of writing competitive grant proposals. The topics presented include:

  • Critical steps for organizing and planning your proposal
  • Understanding the role (and mindset) of your reviewers
  • A proven strategy for writing a compelling Specific Aims page for the NIH
  • Specific approaches and tips for each major section of a grant proposal

This full-day workshop is an annual event for R01 Boot Camp participants, and will be open again this year to U-M faculty members, postdoctoral researchers and administrative staff interested in gaining a competitive edge in grantsmanship. The $379 workshop fee includes a hard copy of The Grant Application Writer's Workbook as well as session materials, a light breakfast, and lunch.

Here are some comments from past participants about the workshop:

“This was an incredibly valuable workshop to improve grantsmanship skills not only for writing R01 grants but also general grant writing. I highly recommend this workshop for anyone writing an NIH grant.” –  Assistant Professor, UMMS

“I was really impressed by the ability of the speaker – and the information presented – to be general and yet specific when needed. With such a diverse group, this is key.” – Associate Research Scientist, EECS


“This was an outstanding, focused presentation, which has already provided me with new ideas on how to write my next set of grants better. This should be a required seminar for all junior faculty involved in writing applications for extramural research.” – Assistant Professor, UMMS

Registration ends October 5th, 2023!

Data and Safety Monitoring Boards and Data Safety Monitoring Plans
This course will review when studies are required to have a DSMP or DSMB and how to develop an appropriate DSMP. A DSMB is an independent group that advises the study team regarding subject safety, study conduct, and efficacy. The DSMB will also make recommendations concerning the continuation, modification, or termination of the trial. A DSMP outlines how subject safety and data integrity will be maintained to ensure the validity of collected data.
