This seminar comprehensively addresses both conceptual and practical aspects that are associated with the grant writing process, often called ‘grantsmanship’. This program is appropriate for faculty members who are contemplating a competitive application to federal or state agencies and foundations in either basic science or clinical research.
Emphasis is given to such things as idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers.
It is stressed that applicants are writing for two different audiences – the assigned reviewers, who have read the application in its entirety, and non-assigned reviewers who may have read little, or nothing, of the proposal before the meeting of the review panel. Strategies designed to merit a fundable priority score are emphasized.
All participants will receive light breakfast, boxed lunch, and a copy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook.
This event will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. and is free and open to all IU School of Medicine and IUPUI faculty and learners.
About the Presenter:
John Robertson, Ph.D. is an associate with Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops, LLC. He has been the recipient of competitive extramural funding from both the NIH and non-federal sources. He is the author of 27 peer-reviewed journal articles and three book chapters. Dr. Robertson has been a member of grant review panels, a reviewer for a number of biomedical journals, and served on editorial boards.
This event is sponsored by Faculty Affairs | Professional Development | Diversity. This event is co-sponsored by Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.

The Indiana University Office of Research Compliance is kicking off its Joint Public Lecture Series by collaborating with Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute to host Heather Pierce, JD, MPH. This inaugural lecture event is titled, Reducing Burden for Researchers and Advancing Research Ethics: Is It A Tradeoff? The event will be in the Hine Hall auditorium on the IUPUI campus on Tuesday, March 3 from 4:00-5:30 pm.
Heather Pierce is the Senior Director for Science Policy and Regulatory Counsel for the Association of American Medical Colleges, where she is the subject matter expert for issues related to the regulation of science and research, as well as interactions between industry, academia, and government.
In this public lecture, Pierce will discuss whether recent welcome efforts to reduce burden for researchers may be in conflict with a growing emphasis on transparency, research integrity and research security. From headline reports on researchers’ failure to disclose financial interests to concerns about the integrity and reproducibility of research, animal welfare, and human subject protection, external pressures on universities and researchers seem to be increasing.

The Office of Research Compliance, in collaboration with academic units throughout IU, hosts the Joint Public Lecture Series on key topics in research compliance. Twice a year – in the spring in Indianapolis and the fall in Bloomington – ORC brings in an internationally/nationally known speaker for 1.5 to 2 day visit including a public lecture and a series of meetings with relevant key stakeholders. If you would like to collaborate with ORC on co-sponsoring such a visit, contact Becca Hopson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
