External Review Program
This joint program offered by the Office of Research and the CTSI provides an external review for R01-level grants.
The External Review Program, previously paused due to COVID-19, is now available.
The program will make arrangements to provide a full NIH style review by an outside reviewer, ideally an individual with recent study section experience in the relevant area. The reviews will be officially solicited by Ann Rosenthal, MD, Associate Dean, Chief, and Professor of Rheumatology. An honorarium of $750 per proposal will be made available to external reviewers for a timely return of the review.
Interested faculty should contact Nicole Davis or Dr. Rosenthal for an application form to request this service. This form requires a commitment from the PI to have a complete draft of the grant application ready by the date indicated in the table below, including the following information for the selected external reviewers:
Introduction and summary statement from the previous review (if applicable)
Biosketches for key personnel
Budget and budget justification
Environment sections in electronic format
Reviews will be solicited in a timely manner, allotting the PI a minimum of 3 weeks to make modifications based on reviewer comments in advance of the deadline for submission to MCW's Grants and Contracts Office for sponsor submission.
