Read what some of our participants had to say...

This has been an amazing experience. I know this will feed me for a very long time. I hope to see this experience bear fruit within a year in the form of a fundable grant!

I loved this institute. I think it has likely transformed my life both personally and professionally. I am so thankful for the in insights that I have received and connections that have been forged.

Faculty in residence mentors have been fabulous and very giving of their time, insights and selves - thank you for pulling together such a wonderful mentorship team!

I would like to say how thankful I am for the CHER Institute. Before attending the CHER institute, I felt anxiety about the NIH grants process. I had very little experience with NIH research grants and I had never developed a Specific Aims page. During my time at the CHER Institute, I learned more about the NIH grants process and spent individualized time with successfully funded NIH researchers. I have maintained these relationships and can consult with these mentors during the preparation of my own research proposals. I also received guidance and feedback on the development of my Specific Aims page, which has received very positive reviews. I am very grateful for my experience at the CHER Institute as it has given me more confidence in developing NIH proposals. --Amber Johnson, PhD, MPH, 2017 CHER Institute Scholar
