Grant Application, Grant Writing Tips, Common Pitfalls to Avoid, Human Subjects, IRBs, and Data Safety
Monitoring Issues, The Review Process, and The Grant Decision-Making Process. The workshop is

Grantsmanship for Established PIs:                                                  Queen Mary
Everything you ever wanted to know about NIH, but never asked

Thomas F. Hilton – National Institute on Drug Abuse

This workshop is limited to researchers who have served in the role of PI of an R01 grant for at least two
years. It is intended to refine PIs’ knowledge about NIH business practices to enable more thoughtful
strategic planning for new project initiatives that will sustain a long-range program of research and
leadership of the field. Attendees may ahead of time submit anonymously all the questions they have been
saving up over the years, which will be answered in the didactic portion of the program. Topics that will be
addressed include: demystifying multiple-PI applications, cooperatives, centers, STTR/SBIR, and
international projects. Emerging pending changes in NIH review procedures and project support levels will
be discussed. There will also be a lively philosophical group discussion regarding what it takes to become
and remain competitive

                         AHSR 2008 Preliminary Agenda
differences when patients or patient groups are to be compared. After a review of problems in the published
literature, Dr. McCaffery will introduce attendees to methods for accounting for pre-treatment differences in
risk and protective factors and adjusting for moderators due to intermittent institutionalization or
imprisonment. Included will be a discussion of balancing adjustment approaches with power. The workshop
will focus on propensity score approaches to estimating causal effects with observational data (what to do
when everything but the kitchen sink may affect outcomes). Dr. McCaffery will show how to weight
propensity scores to estimate average treatment effects on the treated population (estimating effectiveness
for the target treatment population vs. all patients).

Part 2: This presentation will be followed by approximately 60 minutes hands-on familiarization with
“twang,” a program for making casemix adjustments to research data. Freeware and dummy data will be
provided. Part 2 attendees must bring a Windows-based laptop and power cord.
