K Grant Writing Workshop
NIH fellows can apply for a Transition Career Development Award (K22) or Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00). The NCI Center for Cancer Training has developed a K Grant Writing workshop to assist fellows preparing K22 or K99/R00 applications. This free workshop is held from March 30- May 26, 2023 and occurs for 2 hours per week. Eight virtual lectures are given on grantsmanship, electronic submissions, K22 application, K99/R00 application, specific aims, candidate section, biosketch, significance/innovation, and the approach. In addition, fellows can submit part of their application for peer review in class.
The workshop is hosted by 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 at https://events.cancer.gov/cct/wcga by Wednesday, March 29, 2023. WebEx details will be sent prior to the start of the workshop.
