Studying Study Sections

If you are not aware of the trends of expertise on the various study sections that could conceivably be a relevant home for your grant, haven’t studied the grant titles/PIs/abstracts that have been funded after review in those study sections, are not involved in ongoing discussions with SROs about this issue and to provide input concerning appropriate areas for necessary bolstering with ad hoc members, and are not writing your grants in a very targeted fashion to deal with the reality on the ground in the study section you have decided to have your grant assigned to, then you are fuckeing uppe, bigge tyme.
