Grant Review Process

The primary objectives of the OHSE awards are to promote research and to facilitate collaborations between physicians and scientists. Consistent with these objectives, the review process of the proposals will be collaborative among physicians and scientists from various sections within the Surgery Department. It is mandatory to attend the Department Research Conferences to be considered for funding.

Review criteria

  2. Potential for developing into an externally funded project.
  3. Developmental merit for the individual and the Department research objectives and unmet needs.
  4. Reviews of proposals will be conducted using an NIH style scoring and will have at least 2 reviewers not from the same section as the applicant.
