A large university client hired Tn Consulting to provide writing assistance and professional feedback for their substantial Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) application to the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). These large applications are in excess of 200 pages and often include teams of 30+ PI’s. This project required over 50 hours of on-site advisory services, as well as 20 hours of off-site writing and reviewing services. We helped to streamline the writing process for the large group of contributors, provided valuable analysis of the university’s strengths (based on our knowledge of the NCATS mission and funding priorities), and made the application “sparkle” by applying techniques used in our combined marketing experience. The review of this application is still in progress.
