Prove Your Environment Supports Your Research

One of the core criteria National Institutes of Health (NIH) reviewers use to score your grant application is the Environment in which you perform the research.

They want to ensure you will have the resources — meaning the institutional support, equipment and physical items — you need to successfully complete your proposed investigation.

Additionally, they want to know of any unique features of your scientific environment, subject populations or collaborative arrangements that will benefit your project. You will detail these elements in the Facilities and Other Resources and Equipment sections of the short-form application.

Must-have, step-by-step expert guidance includes:

  • Environment is key for early-stage investigators: How to show your institution supports you
  • Underscore your research’s feasibility by demonstrating 2 critical factors in your Environment section
  • Colleagues play an important role … what details you should exploit and what you can leave out
  • Defining “major” equipment — know where to draw the line
  • Ensure you carefully formulate your sharing plans; or pay the price later
