Innovation in NIH Reviews: The Population, Approach, or Both

Innovation in NIH Reviews: The Population, Approach, or Both

This event will include a video presentation by Dr. Bluthenthal, which will be available to participants 1 week prior to the webinar. Additional information and questions from event participants will be addressed during the 1-hour webinar. Dr. Bluthenthal will discuss his online video on the mechanics and culture of the NIH review process, and the relative importance of innovation in grant applications. 

Participants will:
  • Become familiar with the basics of the proposal review process and review criteria.
  • Learn strategies for strengthening the innovation section.
  • Have an opportunity to pose questions to an experienced NIH funded researcher.

Who should attend?
This event is designed to meet the needs of early career faculty (within 10 years of receiving their doctoral degree) from minority serving institutions (MSIs) interested in conducting health disparities research. While priority will be given to faculty from MSIs, early career faculty from non-MSI institutions may register. Enrollment is limited.

About the CHER Institute
The CHER Institute at California State University, Long Beach is a NIGMS funded project seeking to increase the number of early career faculty members who are better prepared to become NIH principal investigators in the field of community-based health equity research with an emphasis on faculty from MSIs.

Each year the CHER Institute offers:
  • An intensive educational and mentoring experience for 15 early career faculty members during a six-day, on-site training focused on theory-based, culturally informed methods for effective community engagement in health equity research with the purpose of developing a Specific Aims page for an NIH research proposal.
  • Four to six single topic webinars annually on theory-based, culturally informed methods for effective community engagement in health equity research.
