Snake Pit: Grant Me the Money!

Published on 10/5/2018 2:00:00 PM

It's Shark Tank, ASCPT Style! Participate in ASCPT's Live Competition in 2019 - Snake Pit: Grant Me the Money!

Do you know how to effectively write and communicate a grant proposal? Test your skills by participating in Snake Pit: Grant Me the Money! This live competition will be held on-site at the ASCPT 2019 Annual Meeting and will feature multi-disciplinary teams using approaches such as modeling and simulation to convince the judges (Snakes) on the validity of their proposal. Interaction between the presenters and the Snakes will enable lively discussion and the potential for teams to walk away with grant money! 

Here's what you need to know:
  • The participating funding agencies will each provide ASCPT with a real-life scenario for a range of drug molecules and diverse patient populations. 
  • ASCPT will release sufficient information on the scenarios to allow you to form teams and select the scenario your team will focus on. Teams can be a mix of career level participants and should be multidisciplinary and diverse in terms of experience levels, expertise, and institutions. All teams will be required to register with ASCPT prior to being provided the full scenario of their choice. At least one member of each team must plan to attend the Annual Meeting to present their team's proposal should it be selected for the live competition. 
  • Teams will write an executive summary of their grant proposal of no more than five pages to be submitted to ASCPT.
  • All submitted proposals will be reviewed under a blinded review process with the top proposals selected for the live competition. 
  • During the live competition, one representative from each competing team will try to convince the Snakes about the validity of their proposal, and after a lively exchange may be rewarded with grant money from one of the funding agencies!
ASCPT will soon release guidelines for participation, including deadlines, format information for the executive summaries, and information on the real-life scenarios, as well as an FAQ document to help guide your participation. Stay tuned for this information, then plan your attack to convince the Snakes that you have the best proposal!
