Biosketch (NIH): Boost Reviewer Interest, Exude Confidence, Get Funded

$167.00

Choose Your Format:
  • Choose your content and words wisely. The information you put forward in your NIH Biosketch will significantly alter reviewer perception of your capabilities, and ultimately sway them one way (approval) or another (rejection).

    Failing to adequately take into account the weight reviewers place on your Biosketch can lead to your proposal quickly landing at the bottom of the pile, but  grant writing expert and consultant, Diane H. Leonard, GPC, can help you make sure this doesn't happen to you.

    During her 60-minute training, Diane will walk you through how to significantly improve your NIH Biosketch. You'll master the skills to present yourself in the most impactful way possible. You'll learn how to select and prioritize your references, identify and arrange your contributions to science, and how to defuse any extenuating factors that may have negatively influenced recent or prior reviewer opinion of your abilities.

    Don’t risk composing your NIH Biosketch without the expert assistance provided in this online training. Register today.

    Who Should Attend:

    This online training is perfect for PIs who are new to applying for NIH funding, want to improve their skills at preparing an NIH Biosketch, and who haven’t completed an NIH grant application since the new NIH Biosketch format went into effect in 2016.

  • Here are just a few of the step-by-step Biosketch strategies you’ll receive by taking advantage of this 60-minute online training.

        • Gain solid insight into more accurately completing your Biosketch forms
        • Decide who are the best references to include to improve your funding chances
        • Deciding which are the five most important contributions to science to include.
        • How to effectively include factors that have caused a previous decrease in productivity
        • Better understand how and why reviewers use your Biosketch to consider your proposal
        • Stop a simple formatting mistake from causing your application to get rejected
        • Prioritize your potential references to elevate reviewer interest in your proposal
        • Overcome extenuating productivity influencing factors: illness, family care, military, disability, etc.
        • And so much more…

    Don’t make the mistake of assuming you can just cut and paste your CV into your Biosketch and have it pass muster. It’s a much more Daedalian process. However, with some assistance you can gain the know-how to write a compelling Biosketch and make reviewers crave more detail from your application. 

    REMEMBER: Adequately answering the 4 questions below while crafting your Biosketch will either mean you receive the research funding you need or you're going back to the drawing board.

        • Does the prior training and experience I've included clearly demonstrate that I can complete my research objectives?
        • Have I clearly highlighted the high quality of my academic, clinical (if relevant), and research record in my Biosketch?
        • Can reviewers undoubtedly discern from my Biosketch that I have the available time and ability to devote to completing the proposed work?
        • Am I effectively highlighting the skills of my key personnel to compensate for any gaps of knowledge?
