Symposium #356
Inside the NIH Peer Review System
Monday, May 29, 2006
1:30 PM–2:50 PM
Area: EAB; Domain: Applied Research
Chair: Kathryn Saunders (University of Kansas)
Discussant: Kathryn Saunders (University of Kansas)
Abstract: Understanding how grant proposals are reviewed will undoubtedly make you a better proposal writer. This symposium combines the expertise of four ABA members who are part of that process, as funding recipients, as reviewers, and as NIH staff. Tom Tatham is an NIH Scientific Review Administrator, Richard Serna is a standing member of the Child Psychopathology and Developmental Disabilities Study Section (formerly BBBP6), and Carol Pilgrim and Kate Saunders serve on the Small Business: Developmental Disabilities, Communication, and Science Education review panel, as well as serving on other panels ad hoc. Find out what happens to your proposal as it works its way through the system, and things that you can do in preparing your proposal to increase the possibility of a positive outcome. Three talks will be presented, one of which simulates a review-panel discussion of a Behavior-Analytic proposal. A portion of the symposium will be a question and answer period.
