How nominations to writing groups work:
To be considered for a writing group:
If you are not a PI, Co-I, or associate member, you will need a WHI PI to submit a nomination on your behalf. Please consult the list of sponsoring PIs.
If you are a PI, Co-I, or associate member, you may submit a nomination on your own behalf. After verifying you are logged into the website with your WHI username and password, please click the "Make a Nomination" link in the left-hand nomination.
Nominations may only be submitted by WHI PIs, Co-Investigators, and Associate Members with approved account access. PIs may nominate other investigators with appropriate research background.
Investigators are expected to actively participate in every writing group they sign up for and should keep their total number of nominations to a reasonable limit.
