Mock Study Section

Are you writing a career development or R01 grant? Register now for this mock study section, which will help you understand how NIH grant reviewers 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
 
The mock study section workshop takes place on Thursday, September 27 from 5:30 – 8 p.m. at the North Campus Research Complex. The cost is $50 for U-M registrants and $65 for non-U-M registrants.

K Writing Workshop

Are you preparing a career development grant application (NIH K or VA CDA) for submission in 2019?

The three-part MICHR K Writing Workshop series will help you get peer critique and feedback from senior faculty who are experienced in NIH study section thinking. The workshop only “works” if people have drafts to discuss, so participants will exchange drafts of their proposals.

This workshop is presented by the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research and takes place on November 13, November 27, and December 11, from 5:30 – 8 p.m. at the North Campus Research Complex.
