Need help interpreting reviews and deciding when is best to revise and resubmit?

Did you miss the payline for funding your NIH Proposal? This seminar and panel discussion will focus on best practices for surviving peer review and successfully resubmitting an NIH proposal. Seasoned PIs will review reasoning and rationale behind changes they have made in response to study section review. Drawing on insights they have gained as applicants, reviewers, and mentors, they will delve into approaches to evaluating Summary Statements, tailoring responses, and rethinking aims. With expertise spanning the basic-to-clinical research spectrum, panelists will bring a wide range of perspectives on using critiques to improve a study whether in the lab or in the clinic.

  • Interpret common reviewer comments.
  • Identify key factors to assess when considering a resubmission.
