In a pursuit of academic medicine, medical scientists (doctors with strong research background, often have PhDs too) have to write grant proposals and secure extramural funding to start and sustain a research lab. The US National Institutes of Health (NIH), is the biggest health funding agency in the U.S and the world, with an annual budget of US$39 billion (2019). Thus learning how to write and submit NIH specific research proposal (grants and contracts) is very relevant and a must for anyone interested in medical training opportunities and enter the academic medicine.

  • Developing Hypothesis and Specific Aims to initiate a research proposal is an essential skill that must be learned before conducting an original research study.
  • At the end of the Lecture, participants will be prepared to develop a research question.
