KBRIN NIH R15 Grant Writing Workshop

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

University of Louisville

Health Sciences Campus

Clinical Translational Research Building (CTR), Room 124

The Kentucky Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (KBRIN) will again offer an intensive workshop on the development of National Institutes of Health (NIH) R15-Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) proposals. AREA grants are specifically designed to support research projects (three years- $300,000) in the biomedical and behavioral sciences conducted by faculty and students in colleges/universities and health professional schools that have not received more than $6 million in NIH research grants in four of the last seven fiscal years. Thus, faculty at nearly all colleges/universities in Kentucky are eligible.

The three main goals of the AREA program are: (1) to support meritorious research; (2) to strengthen the research environment of the institution; and (3) to expose students to research.

The workshop will be led by faculty at KBRIN institutions that have been successful in competing for AREA grants. The morning session is designed for faculty with little or no NIH grant writing experience, whereas the afternoon session is designed to enhance the competitiveness of faculty with some NIH grant writing experience. Depending upon level of experience with the NIH, registrations will be accepted for the either the full day workshop or the afternoon session only.

Past attendees at this workshop have been successful in obtaining NIH funding and this workshop is required to be eligible for KBRIN research grants (see http://louisville.edu/research/kbrin/kbrin-cores/research-core)

The morning workshop will begin at 9:00 am EST and the afternoon session will begin at 1:00 pm EST. Lunch will be provided at noon.

The workshop is free and open to interested faculty at all Kentucky public and private institutions.

As space is limited, please register online by Friday November 3rd at:


Registration deadline is Friday, November 3rd.
