A biosketch is a common proposal element used to asses a researcher’s professional background in relation to the project. The biosketch depicts, in brief, chrolnological form, the PI’s professional accomplishments.

The biosketch should tell the story of an individual’s expertise to carry out the specific project. Sponsors typically require that PIs edit their list to highlight experiences most relevant to the proposal. Bios of all senior/key personnel involved in the project are typically required elements.
