Seminar Format: F-Troop is conducted in a small group, informal format. F-Troop sessions include discussions of the NIH peer-review process, including communications with NIH officials and selection of study section, as well as UTHSCSA-associated requirements (eCOP and Cayuse). Most importantly, major effort is devoted to case-by-case presentations and evaluation/discussion of F grant components prepared by individual trainees. This interactive group effort provides friendly, but frank, feedback toward the goal of submitting a competitive F application.
