Maximize Funding Potential from DoD Grants

FREE Webinar | 60 minutes | Fill Out the Form Below for Your FREE Recording

Generally, funding opportunities in the technology and engineering areas are what comes to mind when thinking about the Department of Defense (DoD) for research support. However, new initiatives have been established to foster novel approaches to biomedical research in response to the expressed needs of the American public, the military, and Congress.

The DoD also awards over $1 billion per year in non-dilutive development funding through the Small Business Innovation Program. This and other DoD available funding are available for you to tap into, but you must know how to master the nuances of these tricky grants to get approved.

During this free, 60-minute online training, John Ludlow, PhD will help you master the specifics of DoD grant requirements, so you are able able to better determine your ability to meet the necessary requirements. Also, Dr. Ludlow will break down the key elements of the DoD process (i.e. areas and items to emphasize, what you should expect from the review process, and strategies) to best position your proposal for successful awarding of funds.

Here are just a few of the easy-to-follow DoD grant strategies that you will receive:

      • Quickly determine if your research project is eligible for DoD funding – avoid wasted time
      • Effectively utilize DoD program announcements to ensure your proposal is relevant to their objectives
      • Breakdown reviewer comments to better decide if you should resubmit or send in a new proposal
      • Overcome the most common application errors by section with ease
      • Use your budget to improve your priority score and boost your chances of approval
      • Head off surprises by mastering what is expected of you by the DoD upon award
      • And so much more…

Who Should Attend: This webinar will benefit any academic or small business PI, scientist or post-doctoral fellow that would like to submit or resubmit a DoD grant and give them the tools to improve their chances at funding.

Meet Your Expert: John Ludlow, PhD

Dr. Ludlow began his academic faculty career at the University of Rochester (NY) in 1991, with appointments in the department of biochemistry at the medical school and the university’s cancer research center. During this time, he maintained an independently funded research laboratory training graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the area of tumor suppressor gene expression, protein structure, and function. Funding for his laboratory came from a variety of sources, including the NIH, Department of Defense, the American Cancer Society, and private foundations. Dr. Ludlow began working in the commercial biotechnology sector in 2000, developing and managing research and pre-clinical programs for cell therapy and tissue engineered products, where he has continued to compete for NIH SBIR/STTR awards and advise on grant writing for the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Defense (DoD).
