The Benefits 

Bioscience Advising's grant consulting services are designed to help academic students and research professionals  increase their odds of receiving grant rewards while alleviating some of the work load

associated with the application process. 

 Providing continuous consultation through out the application process we assist you in communicating the main benefits of your research.   Always engaged in the preparation we make sure your work is highlighted in a manner that will spark the interest of your intended audience.

Our Four Step Process For Success


Grant application preparation begins by providing us with data figures, and (preferably) an outline


We consult with the investigator, regarding specific strategies and methods for presenting the background material, specific aims, while consistently ensuring the research approach strongly adheres to address the overall hypothesis(es).



Based on these conversations, and prior to preparation of the entire proposal, an abstract and specific aims page will be provided for customer review. Upon approval, we will begin the application preparation.


Following completion of the grant writing and application process, one additional round of editing/revision is allowed prior to the customer’s submission. Also, under certain circumstances, we can submit the application (directly to the agency) for the client.

About the Writer/Editor

Dr. Curt Balch has over 20 years of experience in the biomedical and health-research disciplines. His past work included both direct laboratory research as well as the compilation of biomedical research for publication.

His expertise makes Bioscience Advising a fiscally prudent and productive means of writing grants,  getting journal manuscripts, research funding applications, book chapters, and abstracts “out the door” so that you can start reaping the benefits of your hard work.

Your research is just as important as the funding that supports it. Don't risk the chance for denial.

"I have worked with Curt and Bioscience Advising since 2014, resulting in successful publications in Cancer Research, Cancer Letters, Gut, and Oncotarget (2x). In addition to extensive editing, I have also hired Curt to perform de novo writing on four occasions, with two publications and two in press. Curt is highly personable, and often goes far “above and beyond” what he is paid to do. I highly endorse and recommend his work."

"I hired Bioscience Advising to prepare a SBIR grant application, initially having no knowledge of preparing or submitting a grant for my small business they were a huge supporting factor in my success. Because they are results-oriented, they often work beyond normal work hours. For the amount of work performed, I believe the value much exceeds the actually fees. I advocate all of their grant preparation and editing services."
