The Medical Writing, Editing & Grantsmanship blog has some words of wisdom on those all-important letters of intent for the NIH Grand Opportunity grants, due April 27. Most importantly: "Please note the request for a lot more detail than is typical in an LOI. In fact, they essentially want most of the proposal, including its budget," according to the blogger. In addition to the usual letter of intent info, MWEG blogs that "prospective applicants are also asked to consider including [translation: damn well better include]" details such as "evidence that the project is ready for immediate implementation" and a "preliminary list of the expected 2-year outcomes and deliverables."
