“This is my third time to take this course. My scores improved significantly after taking it. I have received a D43, three R01 awards, two R21 awards, and one R25. Just received a twenty-million dollar consortium grant from DoD. Each time I take the course I get more clear and simple in my writing. At my second course and this, my third course, I brought my research forms. You do an excellent job.”
