Competition for National Institutes of Health funding is extraordinarily competitive. The first 1.5 hours of this workshop will be devoted to general grant-writing topics, such as developing an idea, preparing a strategy for proposal generation and identifying funding sources. A 30-minute question-and-answer period will follow. Although our focus is on National Institutes of Health (NIH) applications, the information will be applicable to other federal funding sources like the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, Food and Drug Administration as well the pharmaceutical industry and other private-sector funders.

Craig Rush has over twenty years of success with NIH funding and has served as the principal investigator on nearly 30 grants. He currently directs a National Institute on Drug Abuse institutional training grant titled “Research Training in Drug Abuse Behavior” (5T32 DA035200) as well as the NIH National Service Training Core: Kentucky Center for Clinical and Translational Science (TR001997). A recipient of the NIH National Research Service Award, Dr. Rush’s remarkable record demonstrates his career-long commitment to mentoring numerous undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students and early career faculty. He has authored or coauthored nearly 160 publications, more than 100 of which included at least one trainee.
