Pre-submission review of career development awards

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

From Laura Svetkey, professor of medicine (Endocrinology) and vice chair for faculty development and diversity:

With the support of Dr. Klotman, I am very pleased to offer our faculty and senior fellows pre-submission review of career development awards. Several senior members of the faculty have kindly offered to help.

If you're planning to submit such an award (to NIH, VA, or other funding source), contact Dr. Svetkey (svetk001@mc.duke.edu) or LaVerne Johnson-Pruden (lj.pruden@duke.edu).

Please include the following information:

  1. Your name, division and rank
  2. Name of the primary mentor on the proposal
  3. Funding source
  4. Type of grant (e.g., K23)
  5. Due date
  6. Very brief description of the aims and design of the proposed research project (1-2 sentences, max)

Ask for help as early as you can -- last-minute requests are likely to get a less vigorous review!
