Each month we offer one- to two- hour sessions focused on specific topics related to research development. Topic might include finding funding, mentoring, proposal development and broader impacts. Attendees also will be introduced to program officers at various national funding agencies and will be provided with strategies to approach and build the relationships that are vital to success.

Unless otherwise indicated, our workshops are open to all faculty, students and staff.

National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding is extraordinarily competitive. The first 1.5 hours of this workshop will be devoted to general grant-writing topics, such as developing an idea, preparing a strategy for proposal generation and identifying funding sources. A 30-minute question-and-answer period will follow. Although our focus is on NIH applications, the information will apply to other federal and private-sector funders, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, Food and Drug Administration and the pharmaceutical industry.

Dr. Rush has over 20 years of success with NIH funding and has served as the principal investigator on nearly 30 grants.  He currently directs a National Institute on Drug Abuse institutional training grant titled "Research Training in Drug Abuse Behavior" (5T32 DA035200) as well as an NIH National Research Service Award.
