NIH Fellowships and Career Development Awards Webinar
March 3, 2016 • 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EST

Many young investigators have their eyes set on academic careers. An early challenge they will face is applying for and getting their first funded grant. This webinar provided important tips on how to write successful, competitive fellowship and career development applications, as well as a few common missteps that should be avoided. The goal was to shed light on grantsmanship issues for junior investigators / postdocs who are planning to write F31, F32, or K99/R00 applications.
