NIH Career Award (K) Grant Writing 101

Posted: June 30th, 2015 by Kenneth D. Hertel

Career Development Awards (K awards) are one of the most successful NIH programs that have helped launched many productive investigator careers. Over the past 5 years, K award funding has steadily increased NIH-wide, and in 2014, overall K award success rates were 35% across all institutes. However, many investigators often miss funding opportunities because they are not aware of the kinds of career awards available to them and what’s expected of the trainee in securing an award. In this 2-hour seminar, we examine different NIH training and career development programs, discuss what programs are tailored to specific individuals during their career, and provide an overview of how to write a competitive K award.

You will learn from Dartmouth faculty who hold active K awards–representing the K01, K08, K23, K25, and K99/R00—they tell you what went into their application and some application tips.

Seminar – Biomedical Foundation Grants: A Stepping Stone to NIH Research and a Rich Source for Career Development Grants

Posted: May 26th, 2015 by Kenneth D. Hertel

There are 86,192 foundations in the United States holding $715 billion in assets and they distributed a record $52 billion in 2012. A good portion of this funding was directed to biomedical research and healthcare.  In FY15 to date, 27 Geisel/Dartmouth Hitchcock researchers have been awarded a total of $10,333,505 in foundation grants.  These grants represent basic, clinical, and translational science; curriculum development; global health; and scholarships.  Awards are often segmented for young, mid-career, and established investigators, and a subset of these grants are intended to prepare researchers for federal funding.  SYNERGY and the Norris Cotton Cancer Center will be hosting a seminar to review medical research foundations and summarize them according to their areas of funding and their types of awards.
