"Your combined experience enabled me to consider my own grant in a way that honestly would have been impossible otherwise."
Mr. Vincent Laufer, MSTP Trainee

"The CCTS Panels Done Quickly Program is an outstanding resource for investigators who need a timely and thorough grant review. The CCTS team does an excellent job communicating and working with the investigator and organizing a diverse panel of experts on the UAB campus to provide a comprehensive and efficient grant review for the submitting investigator. After the Panel review, a detailed summary of comments is provided for the investigator to utilize as a resource to make edits to his/her grant proposal for the grant submission. The success rate of applications utilizing the CCTS Panels is excellent. I would recommend investigators submitting grant applications to utilize this outstanding resource offered by the CCTS."
Timmy Lee, MD, MSPH, Professor of Medicine in Nephrology; Vice President of Research for UAB Department of Medicine
