A1 Program

The A-1 program works with investigators who have a received either: 1) a score (but not funding) on an NIH grant proposal or 2) reviews encouraging resubmission by another funding agency.  In those instances, we will identify one or two appropriate external reviewers (successfully funded investigators with that agency or sponsor) to review their resubmission draft (their A-1 in the case of NIH) before it is resubmitted.  The A-1 Program will also provide stipends to reviewers if necessary in order to support the process.  Investigators with reviews from NIH or strong reviews for other grant programs outside NIH who are resubmitting based on those reviews may contact Dr. David Stone, Associate Vice President for Research directly (dastone@niu.edu 753-9282) or they may work with their OSP Research Development Specialist to do so.
