Description: Virtually all clinical researchers share the agony and frustration of the grant funding process. While there aren’t any guaranteed solutions to winning that elusive grant, there are some key points that should be considered by clinical researchers when applying for grant funding.  This session provides information and tips on how to refine the clinical question and build a study rationale, identify core study team members as well as collaborators and infrastructure, communicate research impact and knowledge translation, and develop a study budget, identify considerations for study design, and frame a research question using the PICOT model.

This session is open to faculty members from U of T, considering submitting grant applications for clinical research studies, leading (or considering) multi-centre clinical research, and/or participating in clinical research as well as:

– researchers

– research coordinators
