from 08:30 AM to 04:30 PM
In addition to addressing both the practical and conceptual aspects that are important to the fundamentals of the proposal-writing process, this seminar includes the changes, “Peer Review Enhancement” that NIH announced in January 2009. These changes will completely change the formatting and review of NIH research-grant proposals, not only technically, but philosophically.
Topics covered include the following:
- The switch to the 9-point evaluation scale
- Greater emphasis on quality of content and less on detailed descriptions of what will be done
- Greater emphasis on funding the applications of New/Early Stage Investigators
- Standardization and shortening of reviews
- Greater emphasis on the fastest path to funding: the decision to reapply or switch to a new idea
- Shortening of the length of the Research Plan, with elimination of sections for review of literature and presentation of preliminary data
- Linkage of sections of the application to each of the five core review criteria
Price: $100 - cost includes course material (book & handout) and lunch
