- 2013 NIH Focused Grant Writing Initiative (GWI)-sponsored by the UPRM NIH-EARDA Project
With the objective of increasing the number of UPRM researchers in the biomedical/biobehavioral sciences seeking NIH funding, the UPRM NIH EARDA Project sponsored the 2013 NIH Grant Writing Initiative. This initiative was aimed at assisting researchers to write competitive NIH grant proposals by providing them the tools and resources for successful grant writing. The selected applicants (6) received as incentives: 1) a trip to the NIH Regional Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration; 2) individualized support by the R&D Center’s Proposal Development Unit staff, access to its resources and associated consultants; and 3) a week-long intensive Grant Writing Bootcamp. One participant, Dr. Marabella Domenech, was awarded the prestigious NIH K01 Training grant after participating in the GWI. Congratulations to Mara!
