SPARC will host three NIH webinars on Peer Review on November 2nd, December 1st  and December 2nd .  Each webinar will be in Hoggard Hall room 116 from 2 - 3:30 pm.

The NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR) is the portal for receipt and referral of NIH grant applications, and, for the majority of those applications, carries out the peer review process for assessing scientific and technical merit.  CSR will host online briefings on peer review for fellowship grant applications, R01 applications and basic science applications.  All of the briefings will be approximately one hour long, including a 30 minute question and answer period.  SPARC will answer institutional questions following each webinar.
