Addressing Rigor and Responsibility at NIH: Does Your Grant Have to Change Radically?

Since the NIH instituted its new requirements for rigor and responsibility, applicants have been struggling to find good ways to discuss: 

  • the scientific premise of the proposed research,
  • what makes their experimental design rigorous and unbiased, and
  • the consideration of biological variables that could affect their results.

This presentation will cover approaches that have been recommended by grant writers across the country, the approaches the CCOM Scientific Editing Service has seen, and a grant-writing template that the service makes available to its authors. Input from participants - based on their experiences as both applicants and members of study sections - is encouraged. The hope is that we will all learn more about what works well and what does not.
