Maintaining funding throughout your career requires a solid strategy. As a PI, the last thing you need is to run out of money as you revise and resubmit your renewal. And even though renewals follow the same format and page limits as a new application, there are a few exceptions. For example, a progress report is required, but it is not clear where to place it or where the emphasis should be.

Timing is key. To avoid a break in funding, you must stay ahead of the game. But with everything you have on your agenda, getting the motivation to turn from paper writing to grant writing can be difficult.

During this insightful webinar your expert presenter, Dr. Dorothy Lewis, will highlight the main points to consider before renewing, the best times for submitting your renewal, strategies for refocusing your efforts to come up with new ideas and directions, and the latest tactics to maximize your chances for success.

5 Key Take-Aways:

  • When to submit—timing might be critical for your chances
  • Making a fresh start—why you should step away from what you have already written
  • Re-imagine your work for the next cycle of funding—strategies for redesigning your research efforts
  • Presenting your accomplishments—how they poise you for the future
  • New directions—how much preliminary data to include

Meet Your Presenter:

Dr. Dorothy Lewis, Professor, Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases at the University of Texas Health Science Center has a 25-year history of writing grant applications, including vast experience with the new scoring system. Her successful track record for winning grants has given her a valuable “in the trenches” perspective that can benefit you, at whichever stage you find yourself. She received her PhD in Microbiology in 1978 from the University of Arizona in Tucson. She then pursued an NIH-supported postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque. In 1985, she published her first paper related to T-cell subset changes in HIV patients and acquired her own independent NIH funding. She has maintained continuous NIH funding since 1985, experiencing both times of multiple grants and times of reduced funding. She is former chair of the AIDS Immunology and Pathogenesis study section (2009-2011).
