MCHRI Workshops – Writing the Biosketch & Research Plan
The Maternal & Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) accelerates Stanford discoveries to improve the health of pregnant women and child by fostering transdiciplinary research in the pre-clinical, clinical, and basic sciences.
January 9, 2020; 3-5 pm (Snacks provided) – Tips for Generating a Stellar NIH Biosketch
We will highlight the very specific requirements for the NIH Biosketch, such as how many research products (e.g., paper citations) are allowed for each Contribution to Science. Also, learn how to use storytelling techniques to write a compelling Contribution to Science.
January 10, 2020; 3-5 pm (Snacks provided) – Writing a 3-page Executive Summary of Your Research Plan
MCHRI funding opportunities require a 3-page Research Plan that clearly provides a plan for achieving the specific aims for the proposal. During this workshop, we will provide tips for grabbing the reviewers’ attention, leading them through the proposal research plan, and highlighting the impact of your work.
