Hi- Just received an impact score of 30 (20th percentile) on my R01 re-submission. I am ESI candidate. I have heard of rumors that NCI/NIH will fund all the grants till 25th percentile. Is this true? What is the likelihood of this getting funded. I have not contacted my PO yet. How soon should I get in touch with them? Thanks so much.

If your PO thought the 33 had a shot, then the 20 score should be even more likely, since unless they go crazy with tax cuts, the NIH should be in line for another slight increase (so paylines should be stable). PO won’t know more until budget passes (December or later), but when you get your summary statement, you can touch base and ask if you should resubmit.

Just received an impact score of 20 on my K resubmission to NIMH (original score was 33 and PO had said there was actually a chance that would get funded, but it didn’t end up happening). I know they’ll be quite a bit of uncertainty until the new budget passes, but any thoughts on the likelihood of funding? Thanks so much!

No one will know about NIH funding likelihood until December (or whenever the federal budget passes and is signed into law). Your PO truly has nothing further to tell you at this time, so that is why he has not responded – you don’t need to keep asking him (which can become bothersome). Just watch the news to see when Congress acts on the budget. The Continuing Resolution lasts until December, and it is unlikely the budget will pass before then. You probably do want to to resubmit in November for insurance (the A0 application with the 24 score remains under consideration no matter what). You could ask your PO for his advice on resubmitting (but nothing else!), if you haven’t yet – that is, whether to resubmit and whether anything he heard in the discussion might help you in revising the proposal. Also, if you resubmit, you only really need to respond to the concerns raised in the Resume and Summary of Discussion. If concerns raised by an individual reviewer are not listed there, then probably the panel decided during the discussion that those were not weaknesses; if reviewer 3’s concerns were cited in the Summary, then you do need to address them.

Hello Writedit,
I received (July 3rd) an Impact Score of 24 on my K01 application – NIDA. The problem is that NIDA does not share pay lines on Ks, nor do they give percentile scores on Ks. My PO says that it is a good score with a “decent chance” to be funded. The summary statement is positive but reviewer 3 wanted some changes. I gave my PO one page with suggested feasible solutions to the critiques. In my last contact with the PO he indicated that the uncertainty with congress it is unlikely that he would know anything before December. Is there any opportunity to receive funding here (level of optimism)? It has been 3 weeks since I heard back from the PO and I feel like he does not want to be bothered (and I definitely don’t want to bother him/her). Is there anything I can do or information that I missed in between the lines or elsewhere?

Developmental Centers for Interdisciplinary Research in Benign Urology (P20 - Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

NIH Funding Announcements - Fri, 10/06/2017 - 13:34
Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-17-033 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to seek applications for the Developmental Centers for Interdisciplinary Research in Benign Urology Program (P20). Among the goals of this Program is to further advance research in benign urology by building research teams and facilitating resources generation and sharing. The research teams should be composed of individuals with complementary expertise who propose to either develop innovative resources (Resource Development Projects) or a new research project (Scientific Research Projects) that utilize integrative approaches to address questions relevant to benign urological diseases or disorders. Patient-centered research is encouraged. Resources developed by the Resource Development Projects will be shared upon validation while resources developed within the Scientific Research Projects will be shared at the end or termination of the award, as appropriate and consistent with the program goal of further advancing research. Each Developmental Center is centered on a single Project and must contain an Administrative Core and an Educational Enrichment Program. As part of the efforts of the Division of Kidney, Urologic and Hematologic Diseases (DKUH) to expand and enhance benign urology research, the Developmental Centers Program will work in partnership with the George M. O'Brien Urology Cooperative Research Centers Program (U54) and the Multidisciplinary K12 Urologic Research (KURe) Career Development Program.
