Learn how to think like a grant reviewer at mock study section

July 26, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources


Are you writing a career development or R01 grant? Register now for a mock study section, which will help you understand how NIH grant reviewers think.

As one of nine grant reviewers, you will discuss actual 12-page K and R grants (already submitted in some version to the NIH). You will learn what happens behind the closed doors in a real K or R grant review. It’s a true-to-life simulation guaranteed to raise your score.

This event is ideal for fellows and early career faculty who are writing career development and R01 grants. It simulates an NIH study section in every detail (including the work expected). Participants will be assigned a grant to review in either clinical and translational research or health services research.

The learning objectives are:

• To review and critique the quality of a scientific grant application in a formal review meeting
• To apply the guidelines for peer review as developed by the NIH
• To discuss the common weaknesses of scientific grant proposals

The mock study section workshop takes place on Wednesday, Sept. 14 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the North Campus Research Complex. The cost is $50 for U-M registrants and $65 for non-U-M registrants.
