Which NHLBI staff can help me?
NIH staff plays different roles at each step of the way.
Prior to submission, you may contact a Program Official (PO) for questions about a particular research topic, suitability of your research idea for NHLBI, study design, collaborations with other institutions or meeting human subjects requirements. For questions about the submission or review process, you may contact a Scientific Review Administrator ( SRA ), either in our Scientific Review Branch or in NIH's Center for Scientific Review ( CSR ), depending on where the application will be reviewed. NHLBI Grants Management Specialists ( GMS ) can help you with questions related to business-type or budgetary questions. The Program Official (PO) will be able to direct you to the appropriate review and budget staff.
After peer review, your Program Official (PO) serves as your main contact for all issues related to the review, the summary statement and human subjects. He or she confirms the involvement of human subjects and looks at potential risks and proposed protection measures. He or she will advise you what documentation is needed before NHLBI can fund the grant.
If you would like to contact a Program Official (PO) see, NHLBI Program, Review and Budget Staff Contacts.
