My first submission to Grants.gov

Instead of grading papers and exams, I’ve spent the past few days assembling my first online submission for an NLM Grant for Scholarly Works in Biomedicine and Health

Let me first start out by stating that after college, I worked for the medical research office at the VA Medical Center in White River Jct., Vermont.

This was before the office had computers or even word processors — we had to put everything together with typewriters and photocopiers. More than once, we would have everything assembled and ready to go, and our PI would come in with yet another revision of the research plan, which meant retyping, recopying, etc.  What a waste of trees!

So, even though figuring out the online system was a pain in the butt, it sure beat cutting/pasting/copying. This is my third attempt at this grant, so if I don’t get funded this time I’ll have to start all over again. Finger crossed!
