Grant writing

OFDD offers workshops throughout the year on grant applications.


  • R-Series Grant Writing

    Getting a NIH R01 or R21 grant application funded is a key aspect of promotion for many junior faculty. OFDD’s R01 Countdown is a 4-month program that provides detailed weekly instructor and small group feedback on junior faculty’s NIH R-series grant submissions.

  • Route to Getting Grants (R2G2) Series

    The R2G2 is a seminar series specially designed for junior faculty. Sessions cover all aspects of grant writing, delivered through panel sessions, workshops and focused talks. R2G2 also provides networking opportunities, enabling cross faculty collaborations and multidisciplinary partnerships.
