Congrats to everyone who got their new NIH grants submitted on time for today’s deadline! Make it rain, people, make it rain.
I got mine out and in the end I was pretty happy with it. Felt like crawling over gravel to get it done though. Some of them are like that. Many of the apps just fly along….yeah, they are work to write but it is just in the doing. Some other times it feels like you have come down with acute dementia or something and can barely make the thing hang together.
It’s gotta get done though. And my straight up props to all of you who put in the long hours, or the agonizing hours, to try to keep your labs funded and knocking out the science.
