Responsible Conduct of Research RCR (CTSI) Planning Your NIH Application for the Best Review Possible 11.30.21
This session is part of series on Rigor & Reproducibility. When planning and preparing an NIH grant application of any type, your focus must be on the intended audience: your peers on the Scientific Review Group (study section). This workshop will first review NIH tools to use in identifying the best review group(s) for your science – a critical task in planning and preparing any NIH grant application. We will then focus on crafting the application narratives to address the stated review criteria as well as the rigor, reproducibility, and scientific merit of the research more broadly throughout. We will also go through available training in methods to enhance reproducibility, which is important in T, F, and K applications. The goal is to help applicants prepare competitive applications that give the right reviewers the right information to complete an informed review – and to make this task as easy and pleasant as possible
