I got the summary statement for my latest NIH grant (this one was for a special mechanism). The application was unscored, again, but you know, I’m cool with no scores now. The summary statement, on the other hand, I am not fine with. Not a single comment on the grant. I poured myself into learning an area that I knew nothing about for this grant. They could have at least given me one sentence. Otherwise, how am I supposed to know the thing was even reviewed.
In other news, my R01 gets resubmitted this week. I need a vacation. Luckily I have one coming up… Mr and Mrs Juniorprof are going to Quito and Galapagos. We’ve got a month before we leave so any advice from those that have been is most welcome.
