Avoid NIH Funding Rejections, Write
a Winning Specific Aims Page and Narrative

NIH Training Grant Writer Helps You Make Your Application Stand Out and Get Funded
Don’t let the Specific Aims Page and Narrative section of your NIH grant application get you turned down for the research money you need.

This happens quite frequently in Peer Review meetings. The Specific Aims Page and Narrative section of your Abstract are the most critical aspects of your grant. They can make or break peer reviewer interest and enthusiasm and often immediately sink your grant before it is read in detail.

Despite the overwhelming importance of these sections, knowing how to use them to attract the attention of your reviewer is not straightforward. The good news is, that with an understanding of what NIH peer reviewers expect to see, you can make sure your grant gets noticed, which boosts your chances of funding approval. This is where medical researcher and educator, Christopher Dant, PhD, can help.

Dr. Dant is a former researcher, has written numerous successful NIH grants, and was trained in grant writing at the NIH. Most recently, he taught NIH grant writing at both Stanford and Dartmouth Medical Schools. Dr. Dant knows what it takes to get your grant approved, and during his upcoming, 90-minute online training session on Thursday, February 15th at 12:00 pm, he wants to share this knowledge with you. During this training, he’ll walk you through exactly how to write a more successful Specific Aims Page and Narrative section. This online training will help your application stand out above the fierce NIH grant competition. Ultimately, it will improve your opportunity to get the funding your research needs.

By attending this online training session with Dr. Dant, you will learn how to significantly improve your chances of getting your research noticed and ultimately funded. Here are just a few of the proven tactics you’ll learn from this expert-led training:

~ Construct your Specific Aims Page to incorporate exactly what NIH reviewers expect
