     This will be an open discussion on topics related to NIH grant review and funding, hosted by the ASA's Section on Statistical Genetics and Genomics.  The four panelists are faculty with a successful record of NIH funding and recent experience serving on four different NIH review study sections -- Analytics and Statistics for Population Research Panel A (ASPA), Panel B (ASPB), Biodata Management and Analysis (BDMA), and Genomics, Computational Biology and Technology (GCAT). Topics will include an overview of the NIH review process, a comparison of different NIH study sections and how they may pertain to statistical genetics and genomics, general advice for writing NIH grant proposals, and more.
