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

September 9, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Are you writing a career development or R01 grant? Register now for the MICHR Mock Study Section workshop, which will help you understand how NIH grant reviewers think.

As one of six reviewers, you will discuss actual twelve-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.

Learning objectives:

• 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 Tuesday, Oct. 5 from 3-5:30 p.m. There is a refundable $50 fee for U-M registrants who pay by shortcode and a $65 fee for non-U-M registrants.

Registration closes Sept. 14.
