NIH OER Podcast Episodes: All About Grants

The Office of Extramural Research (OER) presents conversations with NIH staff members. Designed for investigators, fellows, students, research administrators, and others, we provide insights on grant topics from those who live and breathe the information. Podcasts are in mp3 and updated every other week. More information on RSS and Podcasts can be found at the NIH website.

Understanding the Assignment Process
All About Grants is beginning a new series of episodes to help listeners understand how the NIH reviews the approximately 80,000 competing applications we receive each year. Learn what happens to your application once it arrives at NIH, including how it gets assigned to a study section. Dr. Suzanne Fisher, Director of the Division of Receipt and Referral, discusses this and more in "Who Receives Your Grant Application and What Do They Do With It?"

Communicate the Value of Your Research
Dr. Sally Rockey, Deputy Director for Extramural Research, describes which parts of the application are made public via the RePORTER website and why using plain language in these sections can help express the value of your research to the public in "Using Plain Language for Application Titles, Abstracts and Public Health Relevance Statements."
