Dear Colleagues: TODAY SOMETHING HAS CHANGED! After being in the research administration business for three decades, I don’t often get too excited about something that has been written in the literature about grant writing … at least to give me pause long enough to prepare this broad announcement to the VA Boston Research Community. I’ve a favorite new author, Dr. Morgan Giddings. She may just enlighten you and be a great help in preparing your next NIH submission (or other grant application for that matter). Given that we have a holiday approaching, you may just want to down load her book for either your next airplane ride or just sitting on the beach (with your computer?). Her book is a very quick read and her story is one that can be backed up by her successful career in research (specifically writing successful R01s). Her blog is offering some free downloads so may I suggest that you look her up
She is heralding some of the same messages that I’ve been sharing for years. It was great to feel that my theories could be justified by an accomplished research scientist. Dr. Giddings has recently accepted my invitation to visit with you at VA Boston in the Fall. I know that I am looking forward to hearing her lecture on this subject matter and I hope that you can clear some time on your calendar …. More specific information to follow on her visit!
Happy 4th of July …. Best regards, NWD
