NIH Mock Study Section

9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

The Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) Research Development Program will host their Winter NIH Mock Study Section as a Zoom Virtual Meeting. 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. Email to register your interest.

Faculty with NIH study section experience are needed. Please contact if you are willing to participate and your areas of expertise.

Letters of Intent are due Wednesday August 24, by 5 p.m. (CST).  For more information, visit the ICTS website or contact
