Summary from a very large CDC study on diabetes. Longer life-spans are definitely complicating the picture.

"The ongoing diabetes and obesity epidemics have combined with ever-increasing human lifespans to increase lifetime risk of type 2 diabetes to about 40 percent for both men and women, said lead study author Edward Gregg, chief of the epidemiology and statistics branch in the division of diabetes translation at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention"

  • Certificates of Confidentiality for NIH Grants April 28, 2017
    Earlier this year I wrote a post about the 21st Century Cures Act and its changes that directly affect the NIH. One part of this new legislation contains provisions to improve clinical research and privacy through certificates of confidentiality. Currently, certificates of confidentiality (or “CoCs”) are provided upon request to researchers collecting sensitive information about […]
  • Applications, Resubmissions, and the Relative Citation Ratio April 25, 2017
    Measuring the impact of NIH grants is an important input in our stewardship of research funding. One metric we can use to look at impact, discussed previously on this blog, is the relative citation ratio (or RCR). This measure – which NIH has made freely available through the iCite tool – aims to go further […]
  • A Reminder of Your Roles as Applicants and Reviewers in Maintaining the Confidentiality of Peer Review April 7, 2017
    Imagine this: you’re a reviewer on an NIH study section, and receive a greeting card from the Principal Investigator (PI) on an application you are reviewing. A note written inside the card asks that your look favorably upon the application, and in return, the PI would put in a good word with his friend serving […]
  • Following Up On Interim Research Products March 28, 2017
    The role of preprints -- complete and public draft manuscripts which have not gone through the formal peer review, editing, or journal publishing process – continues to be a hot topic in the biological and medical sciences. In January, three major biomedical research funders – HHMI, the MRC, and the Wellcome Trust, changed their policies […]

    In a previous blog, we described the outcomes of grant applications according to the initial peer review score. Some of you have wondered about the peer review scores of amended (“A1”) applications. More specifically, some of you have asked about … Continue reading →
