IPaT Research Reminder: 

Scoring is a critical part of the grant application process and it is used by the NIH and other agencies to evaluate the scientific and technical merit of an individual or team’s proposed research. This process was also designed to encourage academic rigor.  The current scoring system was implemented in 2010, replacing the previous version that exhibited several deficiencies.  According to the NIH (n.d) the current system was designed to encourage reliable scoring of applications. To learn more about the current scoring system please visit the NIH website.
