Aims Pages, Part 1: The Rhetorical Pattern of Introductions in Aims Pages

Below is the first of two videos on writing successful aims pages in dissertation proposals and in grant applications. It this video, we “deconstruct” the introductory material of two examples from grants that received NIH funding, analyzing the rhetorical patterns that make these aims pages successful. (In the second video, which you can find here we look at the specific text of the aims themselves.) 

Make sure you select 720p HD on the video (bottom right corner) for best resolution and so scientific illustrations and figures are clear.
