Your grant application is — in many ways — a story. Each section must grab attention and build your case for funding, within page and character limits. So you must make the most of every word you write — including what you say about yourself in your Biosketch. This section is more than a simple biography of the principal investigator and other team members. You can use this area creatively to increase your chances of obtaining the funding you seek.

This Webinar will reveal tricks of the trade and recommended tactics for effectively presenting your capabilities. For example, how to highlight what is most pertinent, the importance of uniformity across your team members’ biographies, and key words, phrases, publications and topics that will impress reviewers.

5 Key Take-Aways:

  • Personal statement dos and don’ts
  • Best published papers to show off your talents for the proposal
  • Consistent conformity to the new application format among all collaborators
  • Importance of customizing your CV with different emphasis
  • Ideal ways to leave a positive impression on the reviewer

This Webinar is Perfect for PI’s Who Want To:

  • Know what to include in their Biosketch—and what to leave out
  • Make a pertinent and relevant personal statement
  • Identify what published papers to include
  • Gather and organize the CVs of all the project’s collaborators

Meet Your Presenter:
Dr. Dorothy Lewis, 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 under the mentorship of Dr. Noel Warner. In 1985, she published her first paper related to T-cell subset changes in HIV patients and even 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. Currently, she is a member of the AIDS Immunology and Pathogenesis study section (2007-2011) and became chair in 2009. Her long history of writing grant applications and successful track record for winning them has made Dr. Lewis a subject matter expert on the new NIH application system and NIH’s review methods.
