Demystifying the NIH Study Section

An increase in the proposed NIH budget for the coming year provides opportunities for expansion of your research program.  Targeted areas include (in addition to COVID-19 relevant research) Alzheimer’s, cancer, and diabetes.   For those of you who are new to the process of applying for an R01 grant, we have convened a panel of faculty experts to share their insights into the R01 application and study section review processes and respond to your questions.  We have planned for one hour, with extra time for Q&A if needed.

Panelists include:

  • Ruth Anne Eatock, PhD – Professor of Neurobiology and Dean for Faculty Affairs
  • Ronald N. Cohen, MD – Associate Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics
  • Stephen C. Meredith, MD, PhD – Professor of Pathology
  • Ilaria Rebay, PhD – Professor of Ben May Department of Cancer Research
