URC sponsors first grant-writing workshop

The University Research Committee (URC) will hold its first workshop on “Grant Writing for Academic Success,” Sept. 28–29 in the Dobbs Center’s Winship Ballroom.

The event will feature Paul Casella, a writer, teacher, editor and producer who for 17 years has worked with health professionals to improve the clarity and effectiveness of their manuscripts for publication, formal presentations and other media. He is a founding member of the Health Care Communications Group and has authored two chapters of the group’s book, Writing, Speaking and Communication Skills for Health Professionals (Yale University Press, 2001). Casella is a consultant to the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine.

Casella will lead seminars on both days from 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m.; the first day will be targeted to students and faculty in the humanities, social sciences, math and natural sciences, and the visual and performing arts, while the second day will be geared more toward trainees and faculty in biomedical sciences.

The workshop is free, but advance registration is required. For more information, contact the URC’s Melanie Kingston at 404-727-7503 or at univmhk@emory.edu.
