Grant Rant IV

January 7, 2013

A comment I made about grants being “saved” in discussion reminded me of one of the first experiences I had on study section in this regard. I can’t go into too many details but suffice it to say I battered a couple of cultural memes/expectations about scoring within a particular study section at a time when I was still on the earlier side of my independent career.

I hadn’t really paid too much attention to the PI or the project, save a notice when the name turned up on a study section roster. Today I took the trouble to wander over to RePORTER and check up on the Results tab for the grant.

That grant and the PI have exhibited excellent productivity ever since I fought for it.

I love being right.
