Specific Aims Review Sessions

re you preparing for an upcoming grant submission? Have your Specific Aims page reviewed by our senior faculty! Investigators (at all levels) from all areas of environmental exposure and environmental health (including molecular biology, genetics and genomics, as well as epidemiology) are invited to bring their aims to this session, and depending on your focus we will reach out to include reviewers expert in your fields. These are open to investigators at all levels, and preference will be given to Harvard Chan-NIEHS Center members and their collaborators/affiliates/trainees.

In a friendly, constructive, open session, a panel of Center members will offer critique and suggestions for improving your Specific Aims. These sessions are typically held via Zoom only.
