Learning Objectives:

  • Be responsive to the priorities of the funder
  • Present a clear argument based on facts
  • Show clear links between what has been done, what needs to be done and how your idea will help provide solutions.
  • Identify time management strategies for successful grant writing

Claire Pearson, MD, MPH, FACEP
Assistant Professor 

Guest Speaker:

Dragana Komnenov PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Physiology and Internal Medicine, Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Wayne State University School of Medicine. Her primary research interest is to understand the mechanisms of hypertension and how environmental factors, such as stress and diet play a role in creating a favorable milieu for the development of hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Since some humans are particularly inclined to increase dietary intake of highly palatable foods rich in high fructose corn syrup and salt during stress, she is particularly interested in the mechanisms of neurocardiovascular derangement and the development of cardiovascular disease in this setting. She serves on grant review committees nationally for the American Heart Association and locally for the Henry Ford Healthcare System.
