Mock Study Section

What is this service?

This mock study section helps participants understand how NIH grant reviewers think.

Participants will discuss actual twelve-page K and R grants (already submitted in some version to the NIH), learning what happens behind the closed doors in a real K or R grant review.

 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

Who can use this service?

This event is ideal for fellows and early career faculty who are writing career development and R01 grants.
