Resubmissions Revisited: Funded Resubmission Applications and Their Initial Peer Review Scores

Resubmissions Revisited: Funded Resubmission Applications and Their Initial Peer Review Scores

February 17, 2017

“My first submission got an overall impact score of 30. Is that good enough? What’s the likelihood I’ll eventually get this funded?”, or, “My first submission was not even discussed. Now what? Does anyone with an undiscussed grant bother to resubmit? And what’s the likelihood I’ll eventually get this funded?”

In a past blog we provided some general advice and data to help you consider these types of questions, and obviously the answers depend on specifics — but even so, based on… Read more about Resubmissions Revisited: Funded Resubmission Applications and Their Initial Peer Review Scores

Following up on the Research Commitment Index as a Tool to Describe Grant Support

February 15, 2017

Many thanks for your terrific questions and comments to last month’s post, Research Commitment Index: A New Tool for Describing Grant Support. I’d like to use this opportunity to address a couple of key points brought up by a number of commenters; in later blogs, we’ll focus on other suggestions.

The two points I’d like to address here are:

Guest Blogger Series - Alison Wellman Smith from HUIT: Q&A

February 9, 2017

Thank you so much for reading my blogs and for the interest these past weeks!  We have received some great questions as a result.  We thought we’d share the Q&A with everyone – hope this helps!  If you have other questions, please email the Help Desk at ITHelp@harvard.edu.  Your emails will go to the OBI project team.


Lets say you took a break from research admin for a bit and when you came back, CREW was gone and OBI is here.  What are the top reports you would  run?

The top grants dashboards I would recommend… Read more about Guest Blogger Series - Alison Wellman Smith from HUIT: Q&A

Functional Genetics, Epigenetics, and Non-coding RNAs in Substance Use Disorders (R01)

February 8, 2017

Funding Opportunity PA-17-155 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. Genetic and genomic studies have identified genes and gene variants that may impact the fundamental biological mechanisms underpinning substance use disorders (SUDs). Discovery of these genes/variants, while extremely valuable, is only the first step in understanding the molecular processes that influence SUDs. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages basic functional genetic and genomic research in two areas: 1. functional validation to determine which candidate genes/variants/epigenetic/non-… Read more about Functional Genetics, Epigenetics, and Non-coding RNAs in Substance Use Disorders (R01)

Guest Blogger Series - Alison Wellman Smith from HUIT: OBI and Sponsored Budgets

February 6, 2017

Given the wonderful new process to upload sponsored budget to the General Ledger in GMAS, I wanted to take a second to talk about how OBI works with the GL Sponsored Budgets.  GL Sponsored Budgets can be found in a few different OBI dashboards: Sponsored Accounts, Current Grants Financial, Historical Grants Financial, and Printable Grants Financial dashboards.

The Sponsored Accounts dashboard provides expense, income, and budget information at the subactivity, or 33-digit, level.  There are two budget-related columns in this dashboard: Current GL Sponsored Budget and Budget… Read more about Guest Blogger Series - Alison Wellman Smith from HUIT: OBI and Sponsored Budgets
