The Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS), Research Development Program will host their Spring NIH Mock Study Section on Thursday, April 20, 2023 from 9 – 5 p.m. as a Zoom Virtual Meeting.

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.
