NIAID updating “Ten Steps to a Winning R01” online guide

Are you considering applying for an R01 research grant from the National Institutes of Health? If so, you’ll want to read Ten Steps to a Winning R01, a free, online resource offered by the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. While the guide is published by the NIAID, the advice it contains is applicable to research proposals to any of the 27 NIH institutes and centers.

NIAID is currently updating the guide with the most current information. So far, the first two sections, Conduct a Self-Evaluation and Find Your Niche, have been updated. These sections contain guidance to help researchers carefully consider their own research agenda and make thoughtful plans about the most appropriate avenues to seek funding.

Click here to read Ten Steps to a Winning R01 on the NIAID website. Further updates to the series will be distributed through the NIAID Funding Newsletter, which is available online, through email subscription or on Twitter at @NIAIDFunding.
