R01 Writing Groups

A foundation of the program is the R01 Writing Group. We run R01 Writing groups three times a year in preparation for each of the NIH submission dates. The writing group is a comprehensive, 6-month program utilizing a multi-faceted approach to provide you with the tools and knowledge needed to write a successful R01 or equivalent application. Critical components include: a grant proposal writing seminar, the establishment of interdisciplinary groups of up to 5 junior faculty with 1-2 senior faculty members with extensive success with NIH awards and study section reviewer experience as leaders, and access to the Utah Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Grant Writing course resources. Proposal sections are reviewed and critiqued by peers, mentors, and a mock review. The mock study sections include senior mock reviewers from the Utah CTSI community who have NIH funding and study section experience, further enhancing the experience for the participants.

Participants for Fall 2021 R01 Writing Group with submission deadline of February 2022 have been selected. The next round calling for applications to Spring 2022 R01 Writing Group will be announced some time in November 2021. Please contact Lyalya Sultanova at with questions.
