When I moved from sunny Va to baby it’s cold outside, I wanted to continue providing a central resource for advice on grantsmanship and the medical writing/editing process, notices from the NIH (including paylines) and other major grant sponsors (e.g., NSF), tidbits of biomedical research news, commentaries on research integrity, etc. (including, as you’ve no doubt noticed, a personal concern with academic health centers that accept funding from the tobacco industry). Plus I need a convenient place to archive all this for my own reference. If anyone has a specific request for demystification, please feel free to drop it in the suggestion box.
I owe a big thanks for the inspiration and encouragement offered by my favorite medical librarians at Tompkins-McCaw Library. Right now, I have a grant application to review – but there is plenty more to come.
