Mock Study Sections

The Translational Research Institute (TRI) offers Mock Study Sections for investigators seeking review of grant application proposals. Tailored multidisciplinary feedback is provided at specific points in the development of a funding application. Reviews from experienced faculty are available for laboratory, animal, and human subjects projects and may be requested for any external grant application (e.g., NIH, CDC, DOD, USDA, etc.).  Both new applications and resubmissions will be considered.

Investigators requesting a Mock Study Section should submit a request through the TRI Portal.   All materials must be received by TRI at least three months prior to the official grant submission deadline and include the following:

  • Draft proposal
  • Draft budget
  • Biosketch of primary investigator (Biosketches for collaborators should be included if available.)
  • If requesting review of a resubmission, a summary statement from previous reviews must be included.

Mock Study Sections are intended to be learning experiences and investigators should plan to be present.  Collaborators are also encouraged to attend.  Participating investigators will be expected to provide TRI with follow-up information on grant submission outcomes, scores, and funding awards.
