NIH fellows can apply for a Transition Career Development Award (K22) or Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00).  The NCI Center for Cancer Training (CCT) has developed a virtual K Grant Writing workshop to assist fellows preparing K22 or K99/R00 applications.   This free virtual workshop will be held from April 4-May 30, 2024 from 3-5 p.m. usually on Thursday afternoon. Eight WebEx lectures will be given on grantsmanship, electronic submissions, K22 applications, K99/R00 applications, specific aims, candidate, significance/innovation and approach sections.  In addition, fellows can submit part of their application for peer review in class.

The workshop is hosted by Dr. Terry Moody who obtained his PhD at the California Institute of Technology.  After conducting a post-doctoral fellowship at the NIH, he joined the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology faculty at the George Washington University Medical Center. Dr. Moody had several R01 grant applications funded and served as a member of the NIH Study Section.  He became a Principal Investigator at the NCI in 1993 where he investigated the role of peptide growth factors in lung cancer cells.  


Registration is free.  Please register here by Wednesday, April 3, 2024. The registration limit is 75. WebEx details will be sent prior to the start of the workshop.
