Avoid NIH Funding Rejections: Write a Winning Specific Aims Page & Narrative

NIH-Trained Grant Writer Helps You Make Your Application Stand Out and Get Funded

Don’t let the Specific Aims Page and Narrative section of your NIH grant application get you turned down for the research money you need.

This happens quite frequently in Peer Review meetings. The Specific Aims Page and Narrative section of your Abstract are the most critical aspects of your grant. They can make or break peer reviewer interest and enthusiasm and often immediately sink your grant before it is read in detail.

Despite the overwhelming importance of these sections, knowing how to use them to attract the attention of your reviewer is not straightforward. The good news is, that with an understanding of what NIH peer reviewers expect to see, you can make sure your grant gets noticed, which boosts your chances of funding approval. This is where medical researcher and educator, Christopher Dant, PhD, can help.

Dr. Dant is a former researcher, has written numerous successful NIH grants, and was trained in grant writing at the NIH. Most recently, he taught NIH grant writing at both Stanford and Dartmouth Medical Schools. Dr. Dant knows what it takes to get your grant approved, and during his upcoming online training session on Thursday, February 15th at 1pm ET, he wants to share this knowledge with you. This online training will help your application stand out above the fierce NIH grant competition. Ultimately, it will improve your opportunity to get the funding your research needs.

By attending this online training session with Dr. Dant, you’ll learn how to significantly improve your chances of getting your research noticed and ultimately funded. Here are just a few of the proven tactics you’ll learn by attending this expert-led training:

  • Construct your Specific Aims Page to incorporate exactly what NIH reviewers want
  • Proven lay language to use in your narrative section to show your grant’s relevance to human health and attract NIH peer reviewer attention
  • Write a more successful Aims page by mastering the concepts of Significance and Impact
  • Develop a systematic approach to writing your Specific Aims Page that gets you noticed
  • Use Significance and potential Impact to convince NIH reviewers that your research is worth funding
  • Uncover how your Specific Aims Page is KEY to your entire NIH application, and make it work for you
  • Make your grant rise to the top in terms of the importance and impact of your work
  • And so much more…

Registration is limited to ensure that Dr. Dant has time to answer all attendee specific questions during the Q&A portion of the training. Don’t wait, register today.
