Grant Writing Workshop conducted in NIH Islamabad, 3 Jan 2018

A Grant Writing Workshop was conducted by Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) in National Institute of Health (NIH), Islamabad on January 3 2018. Dr. Aamer opened the workshop and provided a background about grant writing. He emphasized that writing a grant is an art, and these workshops will lead to the process through which grant writing can be better understood, as well as learnt about.

Shehroze Ameen provided an overview about literature search; Safia Nisar gave a lecture about grant components, and what are their functions in the context of the grant proposal. She also highlighted the difference between those applying for grants, and those giving the grants (i.e. grant request vs. grant making); Dr. Mashaal Chaudhri gave a lecture on evaluation and evaluation frameworks.

Participants appreciated the efforts of PBSA, and hoped to implement these lessons learnt into their future endeavors with grants.

Being elected as the President of Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) is a true honour for me. I believe that promoting awareness, knowledge and understanding of biosafety at the regional and national level is responsibility of each member and trainer of the PBSA. This organization is commended in many of the national and international forums for its preventive training for Risk Assessment and management, that was much needed at the time of COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, it has promoted strong collaborations and affiliations with various Biosafety developmental programs that align with international standards to acknowledge and recognize biosafety as a separate scientific discipline within Pakistan. I strongly agree that “no one is safe until everyone is safe”, and would like to work with the PBSA team to implement this approach as far and wide as possible.
