According to the NIH “the R03 grant mechanism will support small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources.” If you’re going after the R03 grant there are a few key factors to keep in mind. First, although the format is very similar to the R21, the key difference with the RO3 is that the scope is reduced and better defined because there is less money. This means that there will be fewer people working on the grant and less supply budget, so a key concern is how to limit what is proposed so that it will still be feasible to do.

With only 13% of R03 grants funded in 2011, convincing reviewers that your work is not only important but that it can be done with the time and money proposed can be a challenge. So how can you be sure your project is a good fit for the R03? And, what should you include to get reviewers to champion your work?

During this how-to Webinar, your expert presenter will cover the ins and outs of the R03 grant mechanism and provide you with R03 grant/project examples which can significantly assist you when building your own proposal and help convince reviewers your project is worth the effort.

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).
