I am a biology PhD. student in the United States. I would like to know a little bit more on how to navigate the politics and processes that guide grant funding. In addition to this I am looking for good resources to keep up with news that might impact or change these policies. I guess in short, what are some reputable sites, blogs, news sources, literature or books to help with this?
By tracking policy I meant any good resources that track any legislature or incentives that are being passed that might impact the amount of money going into grant funding. I am also just genuinely interested in the grant funding process or any insightful resources on how to best navigate the whole process.
