My friend's NIH Project was not re-funded.
« on: February 23, 2009, 10:57:40 PM »
Dear Friends,

Please pray for my friend D. whose NIH project was not re-funded.  While he has 2 more chances to re-submit his proposal, he is very concerned about his situation in academia.

Lord have Mercy!

Lord, have mercy!

I applied to this agency 3 times, in 2000-2003, and never was funded. My first proposal was not even reviewed (they have this principle of dividing all proposals into the "upper half" and "lower half" based on rather arbitrary parameters, and then review only the "upper half," throwing what they consider the "lower half" into trash without any review). My second proposal was in the "upper half," but received a bad score. My third proposal was in the "upper half" and received a decent score, but, by that time, the funding of anything not related to the "war against terror" had been greatly reduced and my proposal was not funded, even though praised. After that, I lost all hope and decided not to deal with the NIH ever again.

Anyway... Lord, have mercy on Your servant, help him, support him, give him strength and wisdom in these tough times!

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
