Grant Writing for NIH UTSA Research – Office of Research Support
10 - 11:30 a.m. | JPL 4.04.22 | Assembly Room | Main Campus
The single most important page of a grant application is the specific aims page. This workshop will discuss how to construct a specific aims page and show how the aims page meets two important goals. These goals are to capture the interest of the reviewers and to provide a clear map of the proposed science that is to follow in the rest of the grant application. A specific example from a successful grant application will be illustrated. In addition, there will be time for a discussion on secrets of NIH grant writing and what reviewers are looking for.
