Addressing the NIH Proposal Format Changes
Throughout 2010, we hosted a series of workshops consisting of proposal review and interactive sessions addressing the NIH format change. These session were open information-sharing forums for investigators to ask questions, work on their proposals, and get feedback from their peers. Investigators were asked to bring their grant to discuss—either a new, resubmission, or competing proposal.
