    In an effort to enhance NIH funding success among applicants at all stages, we have set up an Aims Review Committee. Our committee includes a core group of investigators and invited investigators who are closely matched to your field, all with a strong track record of NIH funding success. At the meeting, we will identify strengths and weaknesses, in a format similar to a study section – the big difference is that we will help you to improve the application. After the meeting, we will prepare a summary of comments for you. For any questions or to be scheduled, please contact Leena Sharma MD.
