Spring NIH Mock Study Section – Letters of Intent Due February 7, 2022

The Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) Research Development Program will host their Spring NIH Mock Study Section on Thursday, April 21, 2022, from 9 am – 5 pm via Zoom.

The NIH Mock Study Section is designed to simulate an actual NIH study section. Clinical and translational R, K, and F series grant applications submitted to the Mock Study Section will be reviewed, critiqued and scored by three faculty members as well as other study section members. The feedback will be distributed to applicants prior to the NIH grant deadline.

All investigators preparing a NIH grant application for the R, K, and F series are encouraged to submit their clinical or translational proposals for this internal review.

Observers are also encouraged to attend to get a better understanding of the review process.

Faculty with NIH study section experience are needed. If you are willing to participate and share your areas of expertise, please email
