5:30 - 8:00 p.m.

Collaboration Space (open space), MICHR

Building 400, NCRC

 Registration closes August 17th

What is a Mock Study Section?

This is an opportunity to learn how NIH grant reviewers, or “study sections,” think. As one of nine grant 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


Workload expectation

  • Pre-lecture video:  (less than 30 mins)
