About the Author:

William Gerin received his BA in Psychology from Stanislaus State College in Turlock, California in 1979, where he studied operant and classical conditioning avoidance models in animals.  He became interested in the role of human interactions in emotional regulation, and received his PhD in Social Psychology from Columbia University in 1984, under the mentorship of Stanley Schachter.  In 1985 Gerin undertook an NIH-sponsored postdoctoral fellowship in Cardiovascular Epidemiology at the Cornell University Medical Center.  He then went on to Mount Sinal Hospital and (back to) Columbia University, when he moved his laboratory to the Pennsylvania State University, in the Department of Biobehavioral Health, where he is a Professor, and the Director of the Experimental Cardiovascular Psychophysiology Laboratory.  His current research areas include the examination of acute biological responses, including blood pressure, heart rate variability, cortisol, endothelial function, and inflammatory markers, to stress and negative emotionality.  His other areas of study include the role of emotional regulation in the development of hypertension and coronary heart disease, non-pharmacological interventions to lower blood pressure and improve medication adherence in culturally diverse patient populations, health disparities in the treatment and outcomes of hypertension, and the role of psyochosocial factors in cardiovascular disease.

Review:

"[This book is] strongly recommended for researchers, especially junior researchers. Most universities have proposal-writing training sessions for junior faculty.  This would be a nice supplement to such training sessions. I also think this would be a good text or supplement for a doctoral-level grant writing course...a tremendous resource for most researchers or aspiring researchers."

(Sharon Thompson 2005-10-10)

"The profession will benefit from an NIH grant writing text that steps the reader through the process with relevant examples." (Robert Strack 2005-10-10)

"Writing an NIH grant is extremely daunting, particularly for new investigators and junior faculty. New investigators and junior faculty face many challenges in applying for federal grants, and Gerin′s book could certainly help a junior investigator navigate the complicated process...[and] will help demystify and simplify the application process for many researchers....Gerin succeeds in demystifying NIH grantmaking and has provided useful strategies to assist in writing an NIH grant."                    

(Juliana van Olphen 2005-10-10)

"An excellent idea...This book clearly identifies how to prepare, submit and manage a federal grant...The approach with examples of forms and descriptions of the process should be very helpful to grant writers new to the process. I think it is needed, particularly for junior researchers and with pre- and post-doctoral students....The author covers the topic well and gives excellent suggestions and examples."

(Gale A. Spencer, PhD, RN 2005-10-10)

"A book like this is needed... [and] will benefit new researchers applying for NIH funding...Dr. Gerin does a superb job in distilling the copious information contained in a multitude of complex websites and in presenting the information in an engaging and clear manner."

(Beverly L. Roberts, PhD 2005-10-10)

"There is a real need for this type of handbook...I particularly like the inclusion of ′actual′ examples. This provides the reader with an application of the text that is highly needed and valuable.... especially given the increasing pressures on academic institutions and their faculty and graduate students to bring in external funding, including the prized NIH funding."

(Tami Benham-Deal 2005-10-10)

"Writing the NIH Grant Proposal is a good, well-written book- it is practical and unpretentious. Throughout his step-by-step guide, Gerin provides realistic words of encouragement and strategies for success." (Paul J. Silvia Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books 2006-11-27)
