Donna K. Arnett, Stephen P. Glasser

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Perhaps nothing is more important to a new investigator than how to properly prepare a grant to request funding for clinical research or how to write a manuscript for publication. In this chapter we will review the basic elements for successful grant and manuscript writing, discuss advantages and disadvantages of K versus R applications for National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding, illustrate the “fundamentals” for each section for a standard NIH R-series application, and describe the key components necessary to transition to a successful NIH research career.
