U01 Contracts and Beyond

U01 Contracts and Beyond:
How to Position Yourself
Ahead of the Competition

60-Minute On-Demand Webinar Available in CD-Rom, MP4
and PDF Transcript.

The U01 is a cooperative agreement mechanism involving a formal collaboration between the NIH and a team of researchers. U01s are usually formed when there is a request for applications, wherein a specific institute need is addressed. With a U01, active participation between scientists in an institute and scientists in the field is evident.

During this collaboration-driven Webinar, your expert presenter will cover the essential characteristics of a U01 and how they differ from other grant mechanisms. The nature of the contract established with NIH will be covered as well as essential components of the proposal. Examples of current U01 announcements will be used to provide insight into how to address U01 requests. Some of these requests come about from NIH wide directives, which will be discussed as a way to prepare for these announcements. Many of these U01s come from studies/assays that the NIH needs to be conducted, hence they are not investigator initiated per se but rather responsive to what NIH is looking for. How to best prepare for one of these will be discussed as well as importance of organization in the success of such applications.

Key Take-Aways:

  • How to read and respond to announcements for UO1 applications
  • Importance of responding to the specific request in the announcement
  • Strategies to prepare a better organized application and to determine whether your work would be competitive
  • Recognition that the review process is different and doesn’t involve conventional study sections from CSR

Who Should Attend:

Those interested in this funding mechanism and those interested in positioning themselves to compete for this money.

Meet Your Presenter:

Dorothy Lewis, PhD  Dr. Dorothy Lewis, Professor, Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases at the University of Texas Health Science Center has more than 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 located 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 a member of the Training and Workforce Diversity Study Section C, called TWD-C (2012-2016) and former chair of the AIDS Immunology and Pathogenesis study section (2009-2011).
