Grant-Writing Workshop: Better Late than Never
Contrary to some rumors that have been swirling around
the NIH community, NIGMS's grant-writing workshop has not been
canceled-just moved back to its customary April time slot. Last
fiscal year, NIGMS decided
to try holding the workshop in the fall (the fall of 1994), but
attendance was much poorer than when the event was held in the
spring. So, this fiscal year, the all-day event, officially titled
"Grant Workshop: Extramural Programs and Grant Support,"
will be held on April 22 in the Natcher Building. "Anyone
can enroll. There is a lot of information that is particularly
directed at staff fellows who anticipate leaving NIH soon and
setting up their own labs," says Paul Wolfe, program director
in the Division of Genetics and Developmental Biology at NIGMS.
The seminar provides a general overview of the extramural grant
process along with perspectives from extramural grant administrators
and from outside scientists who serve on study sections. Among
the most popular features of the workshop is the afternoon "breakout"
session, in which participants can have their questions answered
"one-on-one," Wolfe says. For more information on the
free workshop, contact NIGMS's
Doris Smith (phone: 594-0943).
