Training for Bench, Clinical, Biomedical, Translational and Population Health Researchers

Are you planning on submitting your first R01 proposal to the NIH for the June 5th (or July 5th) 2024 deadlines?  Would you like to see what happens when NIH proposals are reviewed and get feedback on your proposal from BU faculty?  Can you commit to having a draft of your proposal ready for review by early April? The CTSI will conduct a mock NIH study section on April 30 from 1 – 4 PM for BU faculty that have not previously received R-level funding from the NIH.  (Space is limited, and Participants will be selected based on a competitive application process.)

The CTSI will also sponsor a 7-session R Proposal Writing Workshop that will meet over the summer to help new investigators prepare first R01 proposals for the October 2024 deadline.  This workshop will conclude with a similar mock study section for Workshop participants in early September 2024.  More information is coming soon!

Participants in the Mock Study Section will:

  • Have their proposal reviewed by up to three BU faculty with extensive experience as reviewers for the NIH.
  • Attend a single 3-hour session to observe BU faculty reviewing the proposals using the same meeting format as an NIH study section.
  • Receive written feedback similar to an NIH “Summary Statement”.
  • Receive all of the above at least three weeks prior to the June 5, 2024, new (A0) R01 submission deadline, or July 5, 2024, resubmission (A1) R01 submission deadline.
