Syracuse University’s Office of Research is pleased to sponsor Write Winning NIH Renewals and Resubmissions.  This half-day virtual workshop focuses on renewals and resubmissions to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). However, the principles and fundamentals, as well as most of the tips and strategies, are transposable to other agencies.

The program works best as a follow-on to the Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals seminar, which will take place on October 7.

The first part of this program helps attendees understand how to position themselves for renewal success, to include how to maximize their rate of publication during the current period of grant support.

The second part of the seminar details how to maximize the likelihood of success when it is necessary to resubmit an application. NIH’s resubmission policy and strategies related to it – especially to triaged applications – are discussed in detail. Common causes of resubmission success and failure are described, thereby allowing attendees to capitalize on the former while avoiding mistakes that are responsible for the latter. Participants are also taught how to analyze and respond to a Summary Statement, as well as how to use the related Program Officer and Scientific Review Officer in developing their response to the constructive criticism they received. Finally, attendees learn how to write their response to the prior review (Introduction) and how to link that response to changes in the Research Plan of the resubmitted application.

All participants will receive an extensive handout, as well as a hardcopy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook.

This workshop is appropriate for faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and administrative staff who have had some exposure to writing grant applications, either through training, mentoring, or personal experience.

The Syracuse University Office of Research is co-hosting this workshop with Upstate Medical University. The majority of the workshop costs are covered by these offices. There is a small fee for workshops materials.

  • Day 1 (Oct. 7): Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals: $100
  • Day 2 (Oct. 8): Write Winning NIH Renewals and Resubmissions: $75
