Children’s Tumour Foundation president ‘loves risk’ and suggests Europeans find mentors for US grant-writing
- Find a European academic with a track record of winning US funding and ask them to be your grant-writing guru
- Projects focusing on one research question tend to fare better than those that address several
- Show you’ve spoken to someone in the field to make sure your application shows genuine commitment to neurofibromatosis (NF)
- As well as previous research in the field, consider taking inspiration from the NF Data Portal
Research charity the Children’s Tumour Foundation funds research worldwide on the genetic disorders neurofibromatosis (NF) and Schwannomatosis, which cause nervous system tumours.
