  • You may not realize it, but approximately 90% of your NIH grant application’s success can be attributed to how well you grab the interest of your peer reviewers. 

    Grant writing is essentially storytelling, and your Specific Aims page and Project Narrative are center stage. They can make or break peer reviewer interest and enthusiasm, and often immediately sink your grant before it is read in detail killing your chances of getting funded right out of the gate.  

    Despite the overwhelming importance of these sections, knowing how to execute them to attract the attention of your reviewer is not straightforward. The good news is, that with understanding of what peer reviewers expect to see, you can get your grant noticed and edge ahead of the competition. This is where medical researcher and educator, Christopher Dant, PhD, can help.
