Summary:This unique volume provides technical assistance for researchers applying for biobehavioral or psychosocial research funding. Although its focus is on Public Health Service (PHS) funding, the guide is equally useful to graduate students or others preparing a proposal to conduct a study. The first section, devoted to grantsmanship and a thorough analysis of the review process, describes how a research program is established in response to public health problems, the process for determining research opportunities and priorities, and how scientific merit is established for research applications. The second section is a step-by-step guide to completing the PHS 398 research application. A detailed chapter on budgeting provides a technical discussion of projecting costs and justifying them. Finally, the guide instructs the potential applicant in the presentation of findings in a scientific talk. Some other original features of this valuable guidebook include insider tips on grantsmanship, an example of a successful research application, and an easily accessible index. Written by scientists and research administrators who have been directly involved with every aspect of federal research support, How to Write a Successful Research Grant Application is today's only authoritative book on the subject.
