We help qualified researchers develop and submit their first independent investigator-initiated grant (e.g., R01) to the NIH and another agencies.

Groups are organized by research methodology and grant submission timeline and are directed at individuals who have not yet obtained an R or R-type award. This includes individuals making their first attempts and those who have submitted before but were not ultimately funded.

R Writing Groups

We help qualified researchers develop and submit their first independent investigator-initiated grant (e.g., R01) to the NIH and another agencies.

Groups are for individuals making their first attempts at R-level funding (including other R mechanisms besides R01s) and those who have submitted before but were not funded.

There are 2 groups:

  1. Lab-based researchers: Application cycle begins in July with group meetings beginning late August and continuing through May.
  2. Clinical trials/health services/epidemiologic research: Rolling application cycle.

Prior to participating, identify content experts (e.g. prior mentors on a K award) who can help you consider the feedback received in the R Writing Group within the context of your discipline. Content experts are also helpful for insight on appropriate grant mechanisms, study sections, and other funding sources for your research.

Questions regarding your potential application to the R Writing Group (not specific questions about your R application) can be directed to Susan Pusek at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
