Proposal Diagnostics

Investigators are encouraged to receive comments and suggestions on their research ideas and proposals by scheduling proposal diagnostics meetings. These meetings consist of sharing your ideas or proposal documents with a group of faculty members from the college and university and in some cases, external reviewers. The Concept Review allows investigators to fine tune preliminary hypotheses and ideas with minimal background and preliminary data. The Aims Review is recommended 180 days prior to submission for critique of the aims page and identification of key missing preliminary data. Complete grant proposals are comprehensively vetted during the Project Intensive Review with internal and paid external reviewers (recommended 90 days prior to submission). The A1 Review focuses on critique interpretation and critical changes for resubmission.

To schedule a Proposal Diagnostics meeting, contact Julie Oestreich.
