He obtained his first research grant while he was writing his PhD and his research was continuously funded by fellowships, project and programme grants for the next 30 years. He served on research grant committees for several UK research councils and the Wellcome Trust; the approach to grant writing that he teaches is based on his analysis of how grants committees make funding decisions. One credit is available for this course. By the end of the workshop participants will: Learn how research grants are awarded Learn how funding decisions dictate the content of a research grant application Learn how funding decisions dictate the structure and style of a research grant application Learn a universal formula for a successful research-grant application Practice writing key sentences for a research grant application.
