KSOM Pre-Grant Review Program

The Keck School of Medicine supports high-quality pre-reviews of external grant applications from new investigators applying for their first NIH R01, R21, K99/R00 or comparable federal research grant. Reviews will address

1. General grantsmanship including the effectiveness of presentation, flow, and quality of supporting documentation and

2. scientific content

Scientific experts participating in the review process will receive honoraria. We strongly encourage investigators to take advantage of this pre-review program.

Please see the October 2018 NIH Submission Timeline.
