The FIT Program is an intensive 5-day hands-on program to assist investigators succeed in the current research/funding environment. Each experienced investigator will take necessary steps toward maximizing competitiveness of a K, R01, or similar investigator-initiated application for submission to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other major funding source. Investigators will be challenged to carefully examine research aims and explore individual professional research goals and, by the end of the program, will have taken critical steps toward fine-tuning the application in ways that study section reviewers expect.
The 2018 FIT Program will be held June 25 - June 29 at the University of Michigan, College of Pharmacy in Ann Arbor, MI.
