"Know the Funding Agency" The NIH Mission
  • NIH is the steward of medical and behavioral
    research for the Nation. Its mission is
  • science in pursuit of fundamental knowledge about
    the nature and behavior of living systems and
  • the application of that knowledge to extend
    healthy life and reduce the burdens of illness
    and disability.
  • http//www.nih.gov/about/

16
The Goals of NIH
  • foster fundamental creative discoveries,
    innovative research strategies, and their
    applications as a basis to advance significantly
    the Nation's capacity to protect and improve
    health
  • develop, maintain, and renew scientific human and
    physical resourcesthat will assure the Nation's
    capability to prevent disease
  • expand the knowledge base in medical and
    associated sciences in order to enhance the
    Nation's economic well-being and ensure a
    continued high return on the public investment in
    research
  • exemplify and promote the highest level of
    scientific integrity, public accountability, and
    social responsibility in the conduct of science

17
National Institutes of Health
  • Each Institute has its own mission
  • Each Institute has its own budget
  • Each Institute has its own activities
  • Each Institute has its own ways of doing things
  • When youre planning to submit a grant, check
    with program directors from different institutes
    to determine their specific policies and interest
    in your science.

18
Choose an Appropriate Funding Mechanism
  • At NIH, there are three principal types
  • Training T F
  • Career K
  • Research Project Grant R

19
NIH Training Awards
  • Institutional training awards (T)
  • Individual training awards (F) for predoctoral
    (F31), postdoctoral (F32), or senior fellowships
    (F33)
  • Limited to US citizens or legal aliens

20
NIH Career Development (K) Awards
  • Directed at retraining, professional career
    development, or recognition of career success
  • Typically requires 75 research effort (offers
    "protected time")
  • K Kioskhttp//grants1.nih.gov/training/careerdeve
    lopmentawards.htm
  • Career Award WizardHelps you select the right
    career awardhttp//grants.nih.gov/training/kwizar
    d/index.htm
  • Participation may be restricted to certain
    Institutes and Centers

21
Research Grants for Independent Scientists
  • R01 Large Research Grant
  • 4-5 years, 250,000/yr
  • R03 Small Grant
  • 2 year max, 50,000/yr max
  • R21 Exploratory Research Grant
  • High Risk High Reward
  • Transformational
  • 2 years, 275,000 total
  • R15 Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA)
  • Primarily undergrad institutions
  • Institute must have received lt3mill/yr in NIH
    funding

22
Unsolicited vs. Solicited
  • NIH makes a distinction between solicited versus
    unsolicited proposals
  • Unsolicited (investigator-initiated) proposals
    (82)
  • Parent Announcements (Program Announcements, PA)
  • Solicited (agency-initiated) proposals (18)
  • Program Announcements (PA)
  • New research programs and updates to ongoing
    programs (renewable)
  • Request for Applications/Proposals (RFA/RFP)
  • One time request to fulfill specific agency
    research objective or need

23
New Investigator Programhttp//grants.nih.gov/gra
nts/new_investigators/index.htm
24
For New Investigators
  • K99/R00 Pathway to Independence
  • Must have fewer than 5 yr postdoc experience
  • Open to US and non-US citizens
  • 2 yr mentored Post-doc 75 effort required
  • 3 yr independent, tenure-track or equivalent
    position 75 research effort
  • R01 fast review for new investigators
  • Check box on cover page for new investigators
  • Example Oct 5 Submit Mar 1 Summary
    Statement Mar 20 Resubmit (Mar 5, Jul 5, Nov 5)

25
For New Investigators
  • More lenient R01 payline for new investigators
    (varies by IC)
  • In FY07, 500 R01 awards to be made to new
    investigators
  • DP2 Directors New Innovator Award
  • For exceptionally creative work of new
    investigators
  • Requires highly innovative approaches that have
    the potential to produce an unusually high impact
  • Must have completed doctoral degree within 10
    yr
  • Awards up to 300,000

26
A New InitiativeIdentify Early Stage
Investigators
  • Designed to encourage early transition to
    independence
  • the average age at which an investigator first
    obtains R01 funding has increased by more than 5
    years between 1980 to and 2001
  • New Investigator  An NIH research grant
    Principal Investigator who has not yet competed
    successfully for a substantial, competing NIH
    research grant
  • Early Stage Investigator (ESI)  An individual
    who is classified as a New or First-Time
    Investigator and is within 10 years of completing
    his/her terminal research degree or is within 10
    years of completing medical residency
  • NIH will collect necessary data from the eRA
    Commons personal profile
  • NIH will eliminate the New Investigator Check Box
    on the application face page
  • New or First-Time Investigators will continue to
    be identified by determining whether the
    individual has had significant, previous NIH
    funding
  • PD/PIs who receive a substantive, competing NIH
    research grant will lose their New Investigator
    status and hence their status as an ESI
  • Applications from ESIs and New Investigators will
    be identified to reviewers so that appropriate
    consideration of their career stage can be
    applied during review
  • New Investigators as well as ESIs will be
    eligible for the Full Implementation to Shorten
    the Review Cycle for New Investigator R01

Staying Informed on NIH FOAs
  • e.g., at NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts

34
Assess the CompetitionKnow what was recently
funded
  • Learning about recently funded research in your
    area helps you understand what an agency is
    looking for in the review process
  • Search on-line databases of funded projects
  • Review abstracts of funded proposals on agency
    web sites
  • Talk to the principal investigators of funded
    proposals in your area
  • Obtain copies of funded proposals
  • Ask the PI

35
CRISP http//report.nih.gov/crisp/
  • Computer Retrieval of Informationon Scientific
    Projects
  • A searchable database of federally funded
    biomedical research
  • What similar projects have been funded?
  • Has someone already been funded to pursue my
    idea?
  • Who are my competitors?
  • Who are potential collaborators?

Preparing Proposals
  • All NIH proposals use either the electronic form
    SF424 or the paper PHS398.
  • The transition to SF424 for F and K awards is
    delayed
  • Step 1 Download the Instructions and Forms via
    the NIH OER website
  • http//grants2.nih.gov/grants/funding/424/
  • http//grants1.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs39
    8.html
  • Step 2 READ THE INSTRUCTIONS

39
Speak with the Program Officer early and often
40
Writing for Reviewers
  • Reviewers often have 8 or 10 proposals to read
  • Use white space, underlining, bold, bullets,
    figures, flowcharts to make main points easy to
    find
  • Put main idea of sections and paragraphs up front
  • Write for the reviewers
  • Make it easy for them to assess your proposal
  • Make it easy for them to be your advocate

41
Common Elements of PHS398 R01
  • Cover page/face sheet
  • Description Project Summary (Abstract)
    Relevance
  • Performance site, key personnel
  • Table of contents
  • Budget page(s)
  • Budget justification
  • Biosketch of PI, biosketch of all other major/key
    personnel
  • Resources
  • Research Plan (Items A-D)
  • Other Information under Research Plan (Items E-J)
  • References cited, human or animal research
    subjects, inclusion of minorities/children in
    clinical studies, data sharing plans, etc.
  • Appendix items
  • Checklist

42
Introductory writing tips
  • Title, Summary (Abstract), and Introduction
    (Specific Aims) are key
  • May be all reviewers read
  • Must excite and grab the attention
  • Reviewers will assume errors in language and
    usage will translate into errors in the science
  • Dont be overly ambitious in what you propose,
    but convey credibility and capacity to perform

43
Introductory writing tips
  • Sell your proposal to a good scientist but not an
    expert
  • Some review panels may not have an expert in your
    field, or panels may be blended for
    multidisciplinary initiatives
  • Agencies reviewers fund compelling, exciting
    research
  • Proposals are not journal articles proposals
    must be user-friendly and offer a narrative that
    tells a story that is memorable to reviewers

44
Title
  • Used by agency administrators to route your
    proposal to the appropriate reviewers
  • Should provide an accurate representation of
    your proposed project
  • Should generate interest in and enthusiasm for
    your proposed project
  • Should conform to agency requirements
  • Program name
  • Number of characters (NIH 81 incl. spaces)

45
Project Summary (Abstract)
  • Used by agency administrators to route your
    proposal to the appropriate reviewers
  • Provides a concise overview of the proposed
    project
  • Requires that you provide a great deal of
    information within a very limited amount of space
    (NIH 30 lines)
  • Becomes public record if the project is funded

46
Project Summary (Abstract)
  • One of the most critical sections
  • May be one of only a few elements a reviewer
    reads
  • Communicate excitement and grab the reviewer
  • Consider writing the Abstract after you've
    written your Research Plan
  • Use the same elements of the Specific Aims in the
    same order
  • Brief introduction to the topic
  • Gap in knowledge or critical need
  • Broad, long-term goals
  • Specific Aims
  • Describe research design and methods
  • Summarize the Significance of the project
  • Avoid summary of past accomplishments
  • Avoid use of the first person

47
Project Relevance
  • The second component of the Project
    Summary/Abstract is Relevance
  • Corresponds to "Project Narrative" in SF424 forms
  • Using no more than two or three sentences,
    describe the relevance of this research to public
    health
  • Be succinct and use plain language that can be
    understood by a general, lay audience

48
Connect budget to the research narrative
  • Be sure activities discussed in the narrative
    (Research Plan) are reflected in the budget
  • In budget justification, personnel, materials,
    supplies, equipment, travel should reflect that
    necessary to complete Research Plan
  • Base budget on real costs
  • Remember that reviewers know what things cost
  • Factor in both direct and indirect costs
  • Factor in cost escalations for multi-year projects

49
Resources
  • Demonstrate that it is feasible to conduct the
    proposed research project at your institution
  • Laboratory
  • Clinical
  • Animal
  • Computer
  • Office
  • Other

50
Research Plan
  • Introduction (Resubmissions only)
  • A) Specific Aims
  • Long-range goals
  • Hypothesis
  • B) Background Significance
  • C) Preliminary Studies / Progress Report
  • D) Research Design and Methods
  • Structure based on Specific Aims

51
Specific Aims
  • Critically important
  • Must provide a conceptual overview
  • Must outline the project goals, objectives
    (aims), and expected outcomes
  • Must be clearly written leave no room for
    interpretation
  • Must grab the reviewers attentionand generate
    enthusiasm for the project
  • Must be able to stand alone
  • Often Title, Abstract, and Specific Aims may be
    the only three parts that all reviewers will have
    an opportunity to read

52
General organization of the Specific Aims
Introduction to the problem. Identification of
need or gap in knowledge. Long term research goal
and specific project goal Central
hypothesis Specific Aims
Project outcomes benefits
53
Specific Aims
  • Provide a framework
  • State a long-range goal of your research program
  • Tie to program/agency mission and goals
  • State a specific hypothesis or critical need that
    your experiments will address
  • Provide a rationale for your approach
  • State specific, measurable Specific Aims
  • Discuss expected outcomes
  • Do not be overly ambitious!

54
Your Central Hypothesis
  • The foundation of your application the
    conceptual underpinning on which the entire
    structure rests.
  • Generally applications should ask questions that
    prove or disprove a hypothesis rather than use a
    method to search for a problem or simply collect
    information.
  • The goal of more applied research may be to
    discover basic biology or develop or use a new
    technology.
  • If your application is not hypothesis-based,
    state this in your cover letter and give the
    reasons why the work is important.

55
Background Significance
  • Consider starting with Significance and tie into
    Specific Aims
  • Explain explicitly why proposed research is
    important
  • Specify how your research will extend and advance
    knowledge in the field
  • Identify what you will be able to do following
    successful research that you cannot now do.
  • Tie to agency and program goals
  • Relate to review criteria (e.g., innovation)
  • Make Significance easy to find
  • Communicate your excitement!

56
Background Significance
  • Background should tie closely to your proposed
    research
  • Describe state of the field
  • Provide context for proposed project
  • Demonstrate your familiarity with the field
  • Nature of the problem and Identification of the
    opportunity
  • Acknowledge alternative hypotheses or models
  • Be thorough and concise
  • Do not be dismissive of previous research

57
Preliminary Data / Progress Report
  • Discussion of preliminary data must connect
    clearly to proposed project
  • Determine how much preliminary data to include
  • Can vary with funding mechanism
  • Present the results in a logical order
  • Illustrate your results

58
Research Design Methods
  • Structure based on Specific Aims or Review
    Criteria
  • Include approaches and detailed methods
  • Be clear about how you will accomplish your
    stated goals and objectives. Include details
  • What, specifically, will you do when you get the
    money?
  • Schedules and milestones may be helpful
  • This is especially important if you are a
    relatively new researcher
  • Identify expected, measurable outcomes
  • Identify and address anticipated pitfalls and
    alternate approaches
  • Avoid ambiguous terminologybe specific!

59
Project schedule
  • Delineate the key milestones
  • Incorporate the agency and program requirements

60
Review of NIH Proposals
  • Center for Scientific Review (CSR)
  • Administers and coordinates peer review
  • http//www.csr.nih.gov/default.htm
  • Divisions (4)
  • Integrated Review Groups (IRG) 23
  • Study Sections (SS) 220
  • Scientific Review Officer (SRO)
  • Members (peers with expertise in SS research)
  • Standing members
  • Ad hoc members
  • Study section rosters postedhttp//www.csr.nih.go
    v/Roster_proto/sectionI.asp

61
What happens when you submit an application?
Center for Scientific Review
1) Scientific Review Group or IC Review Branch
2) IC Advisory Council
Institute Director
62
CSR Review Streamlining
  • Proposal received at CSR
  • Assigned to an IRG, then to a Study Section (SS)
  • The Scientific Review Officer (SRO) assigns a
    primary, secondary, and tertiary reviewer
  • Review is a two-step process
  • 1) Peer review is merit-based
  • Investigator-initiated proposals (R01, R03, R21)
    are read by the 1, 2, 3 peer reviewers
  • Bottom 50 of proposals are identified about 1
    week prior to the SS meeting (triaged or
    streamlined)
  • All three reviewers must agree on the streamlined
    proposals in order for the proposal to be triaged
  • Streamlined applications receive summary
    statements verbatim from each reviewer, but are
    not discussed nor scored
  • SS meets to review and discuss applications
  • Primary reviewer presents your proposal to the
    group (reads the abstract)

63
CSR Scoring Proposals
  • 1) Peer Review (cont.)
  • SS members discuss your application, the primary
    reviewer answers questions about the proposal
  • SS members assign a score to the proposal between
    1-5 (1outstanding, 5forget it)
  • After the meeting the SRO calculates the average
    score for each proposal, multiply by 100 to get a
    3 digit score (100-500)
  • SRO calculates a priority score or percentile
    ranking of the score based on the past 3 cycles
    of grant scores within SS
  • SRO prepares a written critique of your proposal
    based on reviewers comments
  • 2) Advisory Council or Board
  • Meritorious proposals considered against mission,
    needs, and budget
  • IC Program Officer makes recommendation to IC
    Director
  • IC Director makes funding decision

64
Your application is reviewed at study section by
  • Experts
  • Non-experts
  • People who are reading lots of grants
  • People who want to be excited by science
  • People who will be irritated by a sloppy
    application
  • So,
  • Submit a high quality, reviewer-friendly
    application!
  • Have people review your application critically
    well before submission

65
For what are Reviewers looking?NIH General
Review Criteria
  • Significance
  • Ability of the project to improve health
  • Approach
  • Feasibility of methods and appropriateness of
    budget
  • Innovation
  • Originality of research
  • Investigator
  • Education, training, relevant experience
  • Environment
  • Suitability of facilities and institution support

66
Three possible outcomes
  • Triaged
  • Discussed, scored, not funded
  • Discussed, scored, FUNDED!

67
Revisions Resubmission
X Two
  • Three strikes youre out
  • Read the reviewers comments
  • Take a break
  • Re-read the reviewers comments
  • Dont take them personally
  • Read the reviewers comments, AGAIN
  • Call the program officer for more feedback
  • Evaluate if you should resubmit

68
Interpreting Reviews Planning to Resubmit
  • Were certain issues mentioned consistently?
  • Plan how to address those issues
  • Did the reviewers misunderstand your proposal?
  • Plan how to make your text more clear
  • Was no clear issue mentioned?
  • May not have excited reviewers enough
  • May not be an area they wish to fund now
  • May not fit into their research portfolio
  • Begin working on the revisions. Incorporate the
    revisions that you think make your proposal
    better than the previous submission
  • Many funded proposals were funded after multiple
    submissions ? intelligent perseverance is the key!

69
Three Myths
70
Myth 1
  • It's so competitive now that a new investigator
    has no chance of funding.
  • Truths
  • Balderdash
  • If you dont apply, you will not be funded

71
FIRST TIME INVESTIGATORSAS A PERCENTAGE OF ALL
COMPETING AWARDEES
72
Myth 2
  • Nobody gets funded on the first submission
  • Reality
  • At NINDS in 2005, 58 of the K awards were
    obtained on the first submission
  • Plan on resubmitting, but make your first
    submission as good as it can be anyway
  • You cannot be funded on the resubmission without
    a first submission!

73
Myth 3
  • You have little chance of funding when initially
    triaged
  • Reality
  • Plenty of applications are funded after initially
    being triaged
