Dr. Karim SBIR Grant Writer, Academic Grant Editor and Instructor
SBIR and Academic Grant Editor Dr. Karim is an expert in cardiovascular diseases and related fields. He has over thirty years of experience studying cellular and molecular mechanisms of cardiac disease. His research goal is to identify novel therapeutic targets for heart failure. His lab uses human cardiac biopsy samples and preclinical animal models of heart disease to study the role of innate immunity and inflammatory mediators on cardiac and vascular remodeling and function. Some of his recent work explores the role of specific genetic mutations in dysregulated cardiac muscle function and the potential to use these findings for biomarker-guided targeted treatment for heart failure.
Dr. Karim draws from his extensive experience to assist clients with developing, writing and
editing grant proposals, as well as helping them secure funding for cutting-edge research from
the National Institute of Health, the Department of Defense, and various private foundations. His
understanding of the connection between basic and translational research empowers him to build
strong and trusting partnerships with his clients. His expertise includes SBIR Phase I/II grants,
investigator-initiated research grants (R01, R21), and multidisciplinary program projects (P01) in
cardiovascular disease, preclinical drug development, gene therapy targeting, and developing a
new generation of biomarkers for heart disease. He can also assist clients in writing and editing
scientific manuscripts and reviews.
Dr. Karim held a Ph.D. in Cell Biology from Rene Descartes Medical School and was a postdoctoral
fellow at Loyola University Chicago and Columbia University studying the molecular
mechanisms of cardiac and vascular diseases. He joined the faculty at Temple University Medical
School in the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences. Dr. Karim has a wealth of experience in
grant and academic writing and has received continuous funding for his research for the past
twenty years. He serves on multiple National Institute of Health peer review panels and as an
editorial board member and reviewer for several cardiovascular journals. In addition, Dr. Karim
authored over sixty publications and two book chapters in the cardiovascular field.
