Your Grant in Review Reminder: Research Study Sections First

Aug 22 2014 Published by under Grant Review, Grantsmanship, NIH Careerism, NIH funding

One key to determining the right study section to request is to look on RePORTER for funded grants reviewed in your study sections of interest.

Sometimes this is much more informative than the boilerplate description of the study section listed at CSR.

  • It is *always* much more informative than the CSR boilerplate.

    It is amazing to me that people don't do this.

    ....and yet.

    Learning this lesson hurt a little. So I know how to search all funded R01's (for instance) that were reviewed by the 'bunny' study section. I can do this easily in Reporter by picking the SS and limiting it to R01 in Project Details.

    Is there a way to search instead for all funded bunny hopping R01 grants and then visualize all of the various SS's that contributed to that list? No worries with the 1st half-- using Text Search-- but what about the second part. Do I have to click each award 1-by-1 and look at the details or can this be done with Reporter? I can visualize the fraction of the list separated by IC under the Data & Visualize tab but I cannot figure out how to find the fraction of grants reviewed by the 'bunny' SS versus 'rabbit' SS versus 'hopping' SS versus 'landing' SS. Thanks for any help.

    I had this question too. The easiest thing to do is search for each study section one by one and then sort the results according to IC. Or you can search multiple study sections for a single IC, but as far as I can tell there is no way to sort search results by which study section was assigned.

    do you text search for bunny hopping, but do it iteratively with restrictions to single study sections. That might be the easiest.

  • clueless noob says:

    If you export your query results (detailed version, not the summary), the study sections will be included in the output file. This only includes CSR study sections, not the IC SRGs.

    Ooh ooh, good idea! Thanks for the tip, clue.
