Will the course starting in August also be geared toward more clinical research?
Ashton Spicer

Further questions?
Haley Moss
49:33
It makes sense to do the research plan BEFORE the grant, but often times, you see the RFA 2 months before the deadline. In this setting, you’re writing the research to meet the criteria in the RFA.
Haley Moss

..and your don’t always have the preliminary data
Dr Rachel Dew, M.D.
50:40
When are you too old for a career development grant
Jennifer Cohen
52:05
A lot of foundation grants don't give back reviews - any suggestions beyond simply asking for them?
Mithu
52:54
How far in advance of a grant submission deadline do you recommend completing a Concept Review? Is this basically a presentation of the grant aims in powerpoint form?
Michele Easter
52:58
Is this a stand-alone course, or must it be taken as part of the Basic Science Research Track in the Duke Clinical Research Training Program?
Jonathan R Young
54:43
At what point is it most appropriate to have a conversation with the program officer?
Ashton Spicer
54:50
@Michel Easer, It can be taken as a stand-alone course that you are also able to add to the full degree later on
Jamie Privratsky

I had the privilege of going through the Concept Review process organized by Andy and Dee 3 months before my R01 application. Highly highly recommended
Haley Moss
01:01:32
Sorry, I have another question.
Haley Moss
01:01:45
I struggle with the idea of preliminary data
Haley Moss
01:02:14
In my field, I often work with very expensive data sources and there is no way to do a preliminary study without the funding for access to that data
Kaveh Ardalan
01:02:23
Who should be at the concept review? i.e. what makes a good reviewer/team of reviewers?
Corinne
01:02:27
I second that!! You never outgrow a need to get good feedback!
Haley Moss
01:04:17
Thats very helpful, thank you.
Tomo Souma, M.D., Ph.D.
01:04:57
When would it be best for having a concept review? How much preliminary data should I have before asking for a help?
Jennifer Cohen
01:06:04
is the course only offered once per year? (I know budgets are tight right now in our divisions/departments)
Kaveh Ardalan
01:06:18
Follow up question - is it helpful to have existing mentors at concept review or better to have faculty who may be much newer to your work/ideas? Or a mix?
Jennifer Cohen
01:07:54
is the course only offered once per year?
Jennifer Cohen
01:08:12
I know budgets are tight right now in our divisions/depts. and it may be difficult to get support for tuition
Kaveh Ardalan
01:08:55
…and how many reviewers would be best to attend to the concept review? i.e. avoiding too few vs too many cooks in the kitchen :)
Thuy Le
01:10:08
I want to express gratitude and admiration for Andy and Dee for this selfless service. This service takes so much time, and they are doing this for free. They are true rare gems
