Better Biographical Sketches

Recorded on: April 27, 2018

Speakers: Anne Libby, PhD and Andrew Monte, MD

The NIH Biographical Sketch (“biosketch”) is a structured 5 page document that describes the experience, training, and suitability of study investigators. It is more than a list of dates and places, this is a critical document to engage reviewers with the study team and their expertise. The "Investigator" is a scored grant element and a solid biosketch can improve your priority score. Outside of NIH, many funders ask for this document with proposals and it can be useful for research-oriented snapshots as opposed to a CV. Participants will learn how to optimize their NIH biosketch specifically improving the “personal statement” and the “contributions to science” sections, and how to strategically tailor the biosketch for specific grant purposes.
