Dr. Peg AtKisson
Dr. AtKisson came into science when she discovered a love of biology while pursuing degrees in English and European languages. After graduating with a BS in biological sciences, she spent fifteen years at the bench before turning her training in science and background in writing toward the problem of effective communication in grant applications. Her first formal training in grant writing was a Write Winning Grants seminar given at Tufts University by GWSW cofounder Dr. Stephen Russell. During her work with Tufts University, Dr. AtKisson made significant contributions to over $140M in funded grants, including proposal writing, grantsmanship support, team building and strategy design for all areas of research and scholarship.
