The RPRM program was established in early 2022 with the goal of enhancing S&T’s research success via major strategic proposals, expanded mentoring opportunities, and enhanced proposal review processes. Panelists are formally appointed for two-year terms and are tasked with the efforts listed below. To access RPRM program assistance, please contact Maria Shaub at firstname.lastname@example.org
Strategic proposals may be large-scale, multi-institution, early career, instrumentation, or others. Panelists participate in red team reviews of these strategic proposals, evaluating scientific merit, persuasiveness, and responsiveness to evaluation criteria.
Twice each year, the RPRM panelists assist the VCRI and OVCRI staff to select IGI awardees.
As needed, RPRM panelists review and rank proposed projects for limited submission opportunities and provide feedback that is shared anonymously once selections are announced.
RPRM panelists are each assigned one or two junior faculty members and review draft proposal components on a recurring basis, providing constructive feedback. They act as scientific advisors and provide input to enhance early career success. They also introduce an understanding of and respect for the services provided via the OVCRI and OSP offices, explaining the necessity of timelines and processes.
The unit offers specialized proposal development assistance for proposals led by early career faculty members as well as multi-investigator proposals that are large, complex, or otherwise strategic to the institution. Customized assistance may include
For large complex, multi-investigator and otherwise strategic proposals
For early career faculty
For project management assistance on complex, strategic proposals
The purpose of this program is to support faculty members’ endeavor in pursuing research grants. A proposal review panel with experienced NIH grantees has been assembled. Current panelists are
The panel has proposed a few activities. Although the program focuses on NIH, the panel would also provide assistance for health or biomedically related proposals to agencies such as NIOSH, DoD, and Health Effect Institute.If you are interested in having your unfunded proposals diagnosed by the panel or if you plan to submit your proposals to NIH, please contact Professor Yue-Wern Huang at email@example.com or 573-341-6589. For unfunded proposals, please include the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) number (e.g., PAR-20-310) and Summary Statement.
