Call for Volunteers: MDRF Summer Review Council Members

Dear Colleague:

The Mark Diamond Research Fund (MDRF) is currently searching for graduate students to serve on the Summer 2017 review council. Additionally, we are looking for 5 alternate council members.

Your responsibilities include serving on a one review council, with adequate time to review the grant(s) you are given. It will additionally include one council meeting where you will be given a full brunch/lunch as a thank you for your time. The council will be reviewing approximately 20 applications in each meeting. Each reviewer will be asked to read three to four complete applications as a primary reviewer and six to eight summaries (abstract, budget, and budget justification, and supporting documents) as a secondary reviewer. Primary reviewers should be prepared to give a three to five minute informal presentation on each full application. Secondary reviewers should be prepared to add to the discussion.

Summer 2017 review council meetings are scheduled for:

Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 10:00am to 2:00pm
Friday, June 16, 2017 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm
