The purpose of the GUMC Mock Study Section Program is to increase the likelihood of grant funding (internal or external) success by providing comprehensive, study section like feedback to applicants on their complete grant application prior to grant submission. The program is modeled after similar resources offered within individual units at GUMC and longstanding GUMC wide programs providing feedback on specific grant application pieces (e.g., specific aims). It is intended as a resource for faculty of all ranks (instructor, assistant, associate, and professor), tracks (e.g., tenure track, research track, medical educator track), and stages of career experience. It is also intended to provide training in the peer review process (e.g., operation of a study section) to those not yet familiar.
The Welcome to the GUMC Mock Study Section document provides an overview of the process and specifies information that is needed from you and the timing to submit it relative to grant application deadlines in order for us to arrange the mock study section review of your grant application. The requested information should be submitted using the GUMC Mock Study Section Request Form.
