The Des Moines University Office of Research hosted Dr. John Robertson for a second grant writing workshop on June 20, 2014. Attended by DMU faculty and staff, Write Winning Grant Proposals aimed to help both basic scientists and clinical investigators convey their ideas convincingly to increase the favorable review and funding of proposals. In addressing the practical and conceptual aspects that are important to the proposal-writing process, the workshop offered concrete insight and strategies for success.
As one workshop attendee noted, “[I] appreciate the specific suggestions for language in grant writing and how to best describe your project in grant terms.” Emphasis was given to idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers.
