IBBS Grant Review Panel

Pre-grant Review Service

The Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences has organized a committee of faculty who have volunteered to provide feedback on draft grant applications from their faculty colleagues. The pre-grant review service is open to all faculty with primary appointments in IBBS, and junior faculty members are strongly encouraged to participate. 

The committee will accept R01, R21, R35 (MIRA) and NSF grants for review. We are unable to review other types of grants at this time.

The pre-review grant process requires participants to submit the following to the review committee five weeks ahead of the grant due date:

  • Specific Aims
  • Research Strategy
  • Biosketch
  • Response to reviewers comments (if a resubmission).

The pre-review grant reviewers will provide an NIH-style review of the pre-application within one week, giving the applicant four weeks (three weeks for the internal deadlines) to amend the application before final submission. A request for review by the review committee is required a full eight weeks before the NIH due date in order to schedule members of the review committee.
