A Jury of Peers: Untangling D&I Grant Reviews with the People Who Chair Them

Date: Thursday, November 14, 2019

Category: Priority Topic

On Thursday, November 14, 2019, from 3:00 - 4:00pm ET, Dr. David Chambers will be joined by Drs. Bartels, Brownson, and Simon who have all served as past Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (DIRH) Study Section Chairs and will share insights gleaned from their collective leadership of the peer review committee. We will delve into how the standard NIH review criteria may be interpreted in the context of DIRH, including how concepts of significance and innovation are considered, and draw from our participants a range of questions about the review process through the eyes of those who lead the effort.

This session rounds out our trio of grantsmanship webinars and is preceded by an early-October session featuring investigators who used career development awards to grow implementation science capacity and a late-October session featuring investigators who have shared their successful grant applications in our DCCPS Sample Grant repository, responding to broader questions about their paths to successful funding as well as speaking to the portions of their applications they found the most challenging .
