The winter meetings of the NICHD study sections are coming up. This is the opportunity to learn firsthand about the grants review process for securing extramural funding. For any of you who anticipate applying for an NIH grant in the future, we are fortunate to have this program in place, which allows you to sit in the room and hear the discussions about prioritizing among applicants, scoring, and learning what makes for a strong application. These are long meetings, typically held off campus in a hotel in Bethesda or DC. There will be an orientation for attendees led by Dr. Marita Hopmann the week of February 14, precise time and date to be confirmed.
To sign up, please contact Brenda Hanning at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Initial Review Group (IRG) Subcommittee Meeting Schedules. Here is a link to the description of each study section: http://www.nichd.nih.gov/about/org/dsr/descriptions/index.cfm
