Dartmouth SYNERGY and Norris Cotton Cancer Center are co-sponsoring a seminar on grant writing, featuring two experienced Grant Managers at Dartmouth who will tell you everything that goes into an Research (R) grant. In particular, they will examine what documents are needed for a typical R01, R21 and R03 grant, the forms required for the NIH, and will also briefly discuss budgets. The discussion will also include how the new upgrade of Rapport will be used for all grant applications, and what this means to the PI and Grant administrators. This is a great seminar for new and early-stage PIs and Postdocs.
