Testimonials

“Yesterday, Temblor was awarded a Phase II SBIR grant from the National Science Foundation. We received a $225K Phase I grant in 2017. Your review of our Commercialization Plan and Project Description were crucial, and we are so grateful.

It is very tough building a company from scratch, so we are grateful for your help.”

– Ross S. Stein, Ph.D., CEO & Cofounder, Temblor, Inc.

“I want to thank you for your advice and guidance. It looks like I will get the NIH STTR grant I applied for. I resubmitted in January, got a good score with no noted weaknesses.”

– Kelly L. Drew, Ph.D., Professor, University of Alaska Fairbanks

“I have had the pleasure of working with Erin and Eva Garland Consulting (EGC) for the past year at Heat Biologics as a client, and plan to continuing work with her and EGC for all our grant writing needs.  Erin is highly professional, in both her mannerisms and interaction with our partners. She fully engages the client and becomes an integrated partner. Erin’s knowledge base is irreplaceable, she understands the intricacies of various funding agencies, both public health and dept of defense, national and international.  She helped us on numerous STTRs, SBIRs, DoD grant opportunities with success.

Erin “owns the show”, we as the client depend on her for navigating the system, pulling together all the right people and parts, traveling with us to sites and speaking on our behalf.  For this type of service need, the client is completely dependent on what the grant writer can synthesize and assemble, you need to share a brain, Erin knows how to do this and does it with a smile.  We are happy to call her part of our Heat Biologics team.”

– Matthew M. Seavey, PhD, Senior Director of Research, Heat Biologics, Inc.

“I’ve had an excellent experience with the Eva Garland Consulting team. Tiger was excellent to have as both an advisor and grant writer. Aron (Accounting) and Drew (Compliance) were equally important in the entire process. Without them, the grant funding likely would not have been possible.

Eva Garland Consulting is a great business, and I will highly recommend their company to others. Our school, the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, has hired your company to help with other university startups. Many thanks again to all who’ve helped us.”

– Lindon Young, Ph.D., Founder & CSO, Young Therapeutics

“I just wanted to thank you for all of your help on the DoD grant. It was taxing process, but I think it was a strong application. We put in as strong of an application as we could, and you were an integral part of that, so I just want to extend our gratitude.”

– Dr. Raymond Alvarez, CEO, Ichor Biologics

“I was one of several faculty at the University of Alaska Fairbanks that was participating in your seminars provided to help us develop SBIR proposals. I was very fortunate, and the USDA just called to let me know that I got my Phase I awarded starting in June.

I wanted to thank you for all your advice and expertise you provide in your seminars and through your book. I followed your advice to a T and USDA liked the proposal – developing a nutraceutical from AK blueberries to blunt inflammatory and oxidative stress in the CNS with the goal to alleviate cognitive deficits in aging and perhaps some chronic neurodegenerative diseases. I am excited and already worry about a Phase II proposal. I will for certain seek your advice in the future for guidance and my proposals.

Thank you and all the best.”

– Tom Kuhn, Ph.D., Faculty, University of Alaska Fairbanks

“I just wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work in steering us through the grant process for our two Phase 1 Applications. Your support was outstanding and professional. It was a pleasure working with you. Thanks, again!”

– David Myer, Contracts Manager, ILS

“As an orthopaedic surgeon, I’ve faced some difficult tasks including making it through medical school and an arduous postgraduate training program. I’ve published bench and clinical research papers. I’ve served on a variety of public and private boards of directors, some of which were difficult and perplexing. None, however, was as confusing as applying for a NIH research grant. The language was “foreign” and several government websites had to be navigated. Different websites used different terminology to mean the same thing.

I’ve now applied three times. For the first I worked on the application for months and thought it was in on time. Later I learned that it had not even been accepted. The second time we used a consultant and did a little better but missed some chances to improve our application and never had a chance.

Finally, we were guided to Eva Garland Consulting, LLC. Suddenly we had
understandable guidance and effective assistance. Their knowledge and experience were clear. Eva knew how to approach the process and improve our application to the point that we are cautiously optimistic that we will be successful this time around. I highly and unequivocally recommend Eva Garland Consulting, LLC. There is no question that I will wish to engage her for my next grant application.”

– James D. Hundley, MD, VP – Research, GO2, LLC

“Dr. Garland’s expert and insightful work on our proposals brought us unprecedented success with our grant applications. In her hands they became compelling statements of our work that commanded recognition by the study sections. She is also on top of peripheral but important aspects of the funding process. We consider her an essential partner in our strategy for obtaining non-dilutive funding from a variety of sources including the NIH.”

– Cuthbert Simpkins MD, President and Chief Scientific Officer, Vivacelle Bio, Inc.

“Eva Garland Consulting is a valuable asset to Kepley BioSystems. As a first-time grantee, the Team at EGC has continually provided and educated our enterprise with all matters of grants compliance. Whether it is budgeting, accounting, reporting, or strategic guidance, they have delivered exceptionally on every circumstance. We are grateful to have such a talent organization in our corner every step of the way.”

– Anthony L. Dellinger, Ph.D., President of Kepley BioSystems Incorporated, Adjunct Researcher at the Joint School of Nanoscience & Nanoengineering

“Just wanted to say thank you for taking your time to arrange these sessions with us and provide us with your expertise and experience. I feel a lot more confident to have a foundation to attempt to write a competitive SBIR. I will certainly contact you with respect to my SBIR proposal development between now and the submission deadline. Thank you so much.”
