Managing your NIH collaborators

Jun 15 2016 Published by under Uncategorized

Do not let collaborators put a biosketch that is not in the correct format in your proposal. We've had the new format for at least 2 or 3 cycles (I've lost track...). It does not meet the meta-criterion of making your reviewers advocates for your grant.

Update (I better call this one, there are quite likely to be more) 1: I still hate right justification, it makes it hard for me to read. But really, right now I am very irritated by numbered references. There are a couple that I want to check. Grr.

Update 2: Do NOT ever ever use emojis, clip art, or handdrawn  diagrams in a proposal. Further, every figure included should convey significant amount of information, more than that words would do in the same space.

Update 3: Holy Cow.

Leave                  some                 white               space.          If you use the smallest font and the tiniest margins and no space between paragraphs, I feel swamped by enormous blocks of black text.

One response so far

    But if you cram it full of text they have to read it! Or else you get to appeal their errors of fact for missing that you obliquely referenced their concern in subpart 1.iv.c
