On April 15, the Virginia Commonwealth University Office of Research and Innovation hosted a workshop entitled “Getting Funded: An AHRQ Grants Overview“. This introductory workshop was presented by Brent Sandmeyer, MPH, Grants Lead/Social Science Analyst at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Policy, with the aim of helping PIs better understand:
- The structure and priorities of the funding agency, including changes that have taken place over the past 2 years;
- Funding opportunities at AHRQ;
- How to determine if AHRQ is the right funding source for their research questions, including how AHRQ and NIH differ; and
- Writing competitive applications to AHRQ.
