K Grant Intensive Writing Workshop

One of the top priorities of the Center for Translational Medicine is to increase the number of funded K grants on the UTSW campus. The K Grant Intensive Writing Workshop is intended for UTSW junior investigators who are submitting K grants for each NIH cycle. 

“This workshop helped me to reduce redundancy in my writing.”

Participants attend each week, engaging in a peer review of each other’s specific grant section, guided by Bob Toto, M.D. Guest speakers will be brought in to enhance the learning experience. This is a workshop designed for serious grant writers. 

For more information, including requirements, please see the current workshop announcement.

Participant Comments

  • “Terrific workshop… Dr. Toto is very committed to our success and I appreciate his dedication.”
  • “I learned that I need to write more clearly to make everything clearer to those outside my research field.”
  • “I learned that I need to prepare early, have plenty of people read through it, and that every part of the grant is critical.”
  • “It became obvious that both the mentor and the mentee need to communicate clearly with each other and be on the same page in the grant writing process. A mentee cannot write the grant alone.”
  • "The workshop helped me clarify how best to leverage strengths of my various mentors.”
