Grants, Contracts, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH)

November 8, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The Office of Research Development is pleased to offer the “Grants, Contracts, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH)” workshop that will take place on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 2:30 p.m. in the Bangor Room of the Memorial Union.
In this talk, Dr. Terry Yoo will cover some perspectives on federal grantsmanship. The discussion will include a hard look at what makes a promising line of research, in his case targeting combining technology and biomedicine. This will be a personal professional approach to basic tactics for writing grant proposals including a view of the inside of NIH, and an individual vision for research.
As a long standing project officer at NIH, his views will include explaining the public information about that agency, but the perspective will include a comparison and contrast to other federal agencies. The talk will include a view of the organization for the National Institutes of Health, a candid view of its structure and policies, and strategies for approaching the federal grant application process.
