Attaining the goal of advancing our national and international reputation as a premier children’s hospital will require a robust and mixed portfolio of individual and multi-investigator federal grants. As one step to meet this goal, Lurie Children’s and Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute are implementing a mandatory Scientific Peer Review process for all Federal and PCORI grant submissions.
Applications submitted after September 1, 2016 must have completed the Scientific Peer Review process before they can be submitted to the funding agency. This requires submitting a review request at ten (10) weeks and providing a penultimate version of the grant submission seven (7) weeks before the due date.
Reviewer comments will be returned to the PI three (3) weeks before the due date so that they can be incorporated into the submission. The goal is to provide helpful feedback to the PI so that the grant submission has the best possible chance of success.
